Bou Soie pyjamas are made considering the full journey. A journey that starts in the soil, must end in the soil; because let's be real - all good things come to an end!
Bamboo Silk is biodegradable and can decompose in the soil. Before composting your pyjamas, you must remove the thread and waistband elastic as they are not yet biodegradable.
Bamboo set disposal guide
Cut approximately one centimetre from the edge of the seam to ensure that all the thread has been removed from the garment (as the thread is not biodegradable).
Remove the hems
Cut approximately one centimetre from the edge of the hem. The hems are located at the bottom of the garment.
If you're disposing of bottoms you must follow these extra steps
Remove elastic from waist band
Cut a slit in the waistband. Find the elastic inside and snip the elastic. Pull the elastic from one side until the elastic has been completely removed.
Elastic in the waistband must be disposed of with regular waste as it contains plastic content.

How to plant your Bou Soie wildflower garden.
Place the Bou Soie seeded swing tag into a container. Cover the swing tag with a centimetre of room temperature water and leave it to soak for twelve hours.
Find a sunny spot in your garden or in a planter. Then carefully remove the soaked swing tag and place it in the earth and cover it with one to five inches of soil. You may want to place a small stone next to the planted swing tag to make it easy to find and observe its progress.
Ensure that the area receives regular watering.
Depending on the time of year, your wildflower seeds should take seven to ten days to sprout!
