We worked hard to curate the best fabrics available for each garment. Our quest to find sustainable and ethically made, natural and recycled fabrics, led us to work with some amazing companies.
All of our fabrics, with the exception of the EVERYwhere pant fabric, are natural fiber based and had not been previously UPF tested or rated. So our extensive fabric search included testing fabrics per standardized testing procedures to ensure UPF 50+ protection.
All MorrisonRowe fabrics have been tested and rated UPF 50+ per ASTM D6544 or EN 13758-1 and/or AS/NZS 4399 and AATCC 183. All MorrisonRowe fabrics are labelled UPF 50+ per ASTM D6603 or AS/NZS 4399.
Our fabrics are all free of any chemical treatments to make them UPF 50+. Rather, the natural characteristics of the fibers, the structure of the fabric, and the colour is what makes the fabric UPF 50+. Each shade of each fabric is tested to make sure every single MorrisonRowe product is in fact rated UPF 50+TENCEL™ Lyocell

Hemp is sustainably sourced from industrial cannabis sativa fibers. Hemp plants grow very quickly without the use of chemical herbicides or pesticides and produce high yield commercial crops which optimize both land use and available resources.
Hemp has many amazing qualities that make it stand out as a fiber of choice for textiles. Hemp is strong and durable (3x stronger than cotton), is resistant to bacteria and mold, provides natural UV protection (about UPF 15), and is breathable.Organic Cotton
Organic cotton is grown without synthetic fertilizers from untreated, natural seeds. Crop rotation and composting help maintain the health of naturally moist soil which makes organic cotton plants more resistant to pests and disease, eliminating the need for the use of pesticides.
The Hemp/Organic Cotton/Spandex fabric MorrisonRowe uses is from a Canadian supplier and is certified made from organic cotton yarn.
