Baserange is underpinned by a strong belief that sustainable products should not be a luxury. Founded in 2012, Baserange is a line of modern basics with an emphasis on clean lines and easy silhouettes. The company works closely with innovative vendors to develop high-quality textiles from both natural fibres and recycled content. Baserange believes that a commitment to clean production will minimize environmental impact and benefit both the producer and the user. This philosophy has led to the affordable pricing of the label too.And the Baserange Summer 2020 collection is centred around things that are one – but commonly appear or become separated into categories: good and bad, water and air, love and hate, either and or. We questioned why things are defined and tried to abstract these pairs, rather than defining them working with them as a whole.
The fabrics range from silk, linen, cotton, bamboo as well as some recycled materials. Baserange also looks at the origin to make sure it does not flight all around the earth.
They have chosen the bamboo fibres for our underwear and t-shirts because of its softness and lightness. Stil bamboo is considered sustainable as it needs very little pesticides and agrochemicals. Water consumption is very small too, and it needs very little land space to grow, unlike cotton. Naturally disease and pest resistant, bamboo is also fast growing.
All of the cotton garments are 100% organic certified cotton. Third-party organizations certify that organic cotton farms use only these approved methods and do not spray toxic chemicals on their crops.
Wool and silk come from animals. The yarns are done mechanically, so with this type of fibres, their only concern is the dye and finish.
The linen fibres are some of the most sustainable and natural. These plants grow fast, without any irrigation and any intrants like pesticides. Their linen production is all grown and done in Europe. All the process from the fields to the fabric is natural and mechanical.The silhouettes use both ruching and irregular pleating is done semi-freehand to play around the body and space. Presence of slices throughout the collection. Layers from the inside showing on the outside and vice versa. The colour palette has a strong presence of neutrals, white, black, tea and coffee-stained pieces as well as some rust tones, cohabiting with deep reds and greens.
