1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    You say you make some of your products out of "organic bamboo".
    So you start out with organically grown bamboo, can you trace and confirm it?
    It doesn't need pesticides to grow, what about herbicides and chemical fertilizers?
    In the end it's either Rayon or Viscose, both of which are synthetic - the manufacturing process for these materials is highly toxic and dangerous, especially in parts of the world that supply the vast majority of these materials.

    What makes "organic" superior in this case?

    Does it perform better?
    Does it have a reduced environmental footprint?

    I ask these questions because in most cases organic produce requires more fertilizers and more "natural" herbicides that end up having a larger environmental impact then the non-organic equivalent.

    Interesting. I'd like to read more about this. Can you point me to a reference?

    The part about "larger environmental impact then the non-organic equivalent" is new to me.
    Let's see the science.

    I came across these guys while searching for moleskins:

    Interesting story and the products look great. I don't think you can't find a pair of trousers anywhere else for the price that are guaranteed for life.

    Fabrics look ok. Cuts look generic.
