Jersey is a stretchy and soft material knitted from a fine thread of viscose. Viscose is a natural material extracted from trees, and we have chosen a sustainable quality for all our designs. This means that the trees we use are replanted and that the consumption of water associated with production is kept at a minimum. We also ensure no pesticides are used, protecting important ecosystems from unnecessary toxins. Finally, 20% of the viscose fibers are reused, to limit wasteful consumption.
Our jersey fabric preserves its softness wash after wash, and we recommend not using fabric softener as well as not tumble drying the material. Tumble drying jersey is an unnecessary strain on the environment – the material can feel rigid right after washing, but as soon as it dries, it’s soft and comfortable again. We recommend hanging the jersey up on a hanger so that you don’t have to iron it and can save energy at the same time. We use the same high-quality jersey for all our brands; Henriette Steffensen Copenhagen, Carl by Steffensen, and Growing Up by Steffensen.
The jersey material is produced in a carefully selected factory in Portugal and the cutting and sewing of the material are carried out in Lithuania. HSCPH’s jersey designs are thereby 100% European produced and certified under STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® cert. number 2176-347 DTI. Read more about OEKO-TEX® here.
