Our Materials


Right from the get-go we were determined to do “good” by Sir Cadian — to make his eponymous sleepwear earth-wise and planet-friendly.  Here’s the story so far, but trust us, our dedication is to continue the path we’re on and to do what we can to deliver our eco best — now and in the future, for you and the planet.


Making Sir Cadian sleepwear sustainable and biodegradable was a must for us. That’s why we turned to plant-based fabrics like Tencel™ Modal, bamboo, and organic cotton. The bonus — as well as being earth friendly, our fabrics feel soft and luxurious. That’s the win-win.

Additionally, each of our preferred fabrics are OEKO-TEX 100 tested for over 100+ harmful substances. 


Small things, indeed, but they matter. Instead of plastic, our buttons are the dried and polished nuts from palm trees, while upcycled cotton materials are used in Sir Cadian’s drawcords.


Our prints are inspired by nature and the world, and it was important for us to ensure that they were printed to reflect that pro-nature spirit.  Digital printing was our choice — more expensive, yes, but cleaner and less wasteful than traditional screen printing. 


Whether gift or personal purchase, the pleasure of Sir Cadian’s arrival at your door had to be reflected in the earth-consciousness of its packaging. Aiming for less waste, our shipping mailers are plant-based and PBAT (Polybutyrate Adipate Terephthalate) and are biodegradable. Our gift box, tissue paper and stickers are all certified sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). For most of our printing, we use all-natural soy ink.
