MUJO: HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS
For Isabelle, every MUJO material is a quest. Finding a fabric that meets all the criteria for ethical production requires meticulous work. It is an almost spiritual journey where the pitfalls reflect the abuses of our over-consuming society. An affordable fabric is generally one that respects neither the environment nor those who produce it. Isabelle's makes it a mission to find fabrics that are sometimes made of natural fibers, sometimes organic, sometimes recycled or regenerated, but never compromises on performance.
Each MUJO piece is designed with the utmost respect for the craftsman. MUJO allows you to wear your favorite items more often and for a longer time, thereby reducing your ecological footprint.
Our Bali jumpsuit, flagship product of MUJO is made of 100% TENCEL®, one of the most ecological and environment-friendly fiber you can find. TENCEL® is unique fabric, made of eucalyptus pulp, fast growing tree, requiring a low intake in water and pest repellent. Resistant, respirant, fully biodegradable, light and versatile this fabric is full of advantages !
TENCEL® also brings an incomparable natural performance :
- Sweat regulation
- Wrench resistant
- Fresh feeling on the skin
- Easy maintenance (40° wash)
- Quick dry
- Very little tendency to wrinkle

Thanks to many years of research, Lenzing company in today the only Tencel® Lyocell producer using a sustainable waste-free process. The company has even been rewarded by a European Union award for their outstanding work.
BAMBOO CERTIFIED OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world. Its cultivation does not require any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Its production uses four times less water than cotton and it is completely biodegradable. It is often said that bamboo fiber is anti-odor, antibacterial, hypoallergenic, anti UV and thermoregulatory. This fabric also has an above-average absorption capacity and incredible softness. Many criticize the chemicals used when transforming the plant into fiber, which is why MUJO chose certified fabric.
OEKO-TEX certification is a large umbrella that integrates a multitude of services and certifications. The aim of OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 certification is to assess and eliminate the use of harmful substances in the manufacturing of textiles. A STANDARD 100 certified fabric by OEKO-TEX is indicated for skin comfort in different classes, including infant products, products in direct contact with the skin and decoration materials.
ECONYL® REGENERATED NYLON
ECONYL® reclaimed nylon has the exact same properties and performance as new nylon, but it gives you a sustainability advantage by turning waste into treasure. Made from waste, it's infinitely recyclable and creates sustainable products that also help move the industry toward a sustainable future. The ECONYL® regeneration system involves the rescue and collection of waste materials, such as industrial plastics, carpets and fishing nets, which are collected from the oceans. The fibers do not wrinkle, do not shrink, are wear-resistant, elastic, light and soft. This breathable material is perfectly suited for functional and sportswear. We have chosen this revolutionary material for our activewear collection. Pieces that are worn very close to the body and require high quality performance.
