NEW EXPLAINER VIDEO

in less than two minutes, this video will let you know who we are and what we believe in.

we produced this video the same way  we cut our merino wool – by hand

the explainer video is animated by hand! It’s true. we found Marchan – a young upcoming motion designer from Denmark. Marchan hand sketches more than 3000 sketches for this video. 3000! It’s 12 sketches per second! furthermore, he handpicked the speaker to make sure, the video has the perfect sound and personality.

he has truly made a great effort in creating a unique video telling our story, and we’re so proud of the result.

BAMBOO – easy to love

bybasics bamboo lyocell clothing women 01

you care about the environment. you want sustainable clothing made from the most environmentally friendly materials possible. you want soft fabrics. and you want to look chick.

by basics BAMBOO collection might just be what you’re looking for.

we use bamboo lyocell

all our bamboo clothing is made from lyocell bamboo fabric. lyocell is made from many types of wood – in our case: bamboo. after being harvested, the bamboo is cut into small pieces and ground into a pulp, which is then dissolved by the non-toxic amine oxide.

the remains from this process are raw cellulose which is being pushed through spinnerets, washed, and dried. now, it’s ready to be spun into yarn and afterwards woven into the softest bamboo fabric.

did you know that bamboo...

  • is 100 % biodegradable?

  • might grow up to 25 cm a day?

  • has an even more positive effect on CO2 levels than trees because the plant absorbs more CO2 per m2?

  • is the fastest growing plant on earth?

more reasons to love bamboo

bamboo has round and smooth fibres hence clothes made from bamboo is incredibly soft and comfortable to wear.

in addition, bamboo has many good qualities. bamboo fabric has a sweat absorbing and transporting effect. it lets the skin breathe and do not stick when you sweat. like wool, bamboo is temperature regulating and have the ability to absorb 3-4 times more than cotton. the bamboo has a natural anti-bacterial effect, which is retained in the final product.

because we want to produce with care, bamboo is a natural choice. bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth and grows to its maximum height of only 3-4 years, and it even puts new shoots when it is felled. bamboo grows naturally without pesticides or pest control.

Support your local shops

It has maybe never been more important!!!

- we all need to stand together to help and protect our local shops and businesses during these tough and difficult times.

You might never have thought about it – but try to imagine the local city centre being closed forever! Imagine not to be able to go for a walk in your local pedestrian street, not meeting your neighbour in the local clothing store or grocery store for that matter. This will in all aspects mean a much poorer community!

Your local shop is boosting the economy, creating jobs and ultimately, serving as a foundational stepping stone towards the local environments – as well “socially” as the “identities” of local communities.

Yet, there are a lot more than just financial losses to consider when we allow these businesses to disappear … please find below a small selection of statements from an article in Forbes Magazine – that says a lot:

one stop shop

even though we love our knitted styles, we know that sometimes you need a piece of woven clothing to create the perfect look. that is why we have created own: to make sure you can get all the styles you need in one shop.

printed poplin

in our OWN collection, you will find three styles made from the most gorgeous printed poplin. this is a limited edition; once it is sold out it is gone for good.

piece dyed linen and poplin

while our other styles are sown as you order; OWN is coloured by order. we sow the styles in raw materials – and piece dye according to the colours you order. we do this as we do want to reduce waste: the styles are classic – the colours might change.
