Our Fashion Philosophy
Iridium Apparel designs stylish, comfortable, easy-to-care-for clothing. Every piece in our collection comes in an array of colors with a fashion that reflects a casual lifestyle. Women want to look and feel beautiful without compromising comfort. Our lifestyle line is characterized by comfort and style balanced elegantly with softness and drape. Fun details, like our tagua nut buttons, distinguish it from other casual clothing.
Our customers love Iridium Apparel more with each wear. The comfort and quality of these garments spoil them, drawing them back each season to add new pieces to their personal collections. They also love that their newest piece will coordinate with garments from seasons past. Comfort, fun and worry-free, that’s Iridium Apparel.
Iridium uses fabrics of primarily natural fibers. USA grown cotton fibers are woven in a fair trade factory in Ecuador. We also use natural, biodegradable materials for buttons. Our use of the tagua nut, also known as vegetable ivory, is a perfect example of our commitment to maintaining our traditional look while respecting modern sensibilities and ethics.
Most of our buttons are crafted in Tagua nut, which comes from a commercially grown South American palm. It is non-toxic, pure cellulose, and almost indistinguishable from ivory in density, color and durability. The buttons absorb color in the dying process to coordinate with the garments. We also use shell and coconut buttons in a variety of sizes to complement our fabrics.
Iridium Apparel embraces a tradition in materials and manufacturing that is reflected in our style. Loomed cotton, accented with the look and feel of ivory, produces sensible garments for a casual lifestyle.
