My Journey to Natural, Sustainable Clothing- Patra Review


After reading all about the dangers of plastic fibres for your skin, I’ve been trying to upgrade my wardrobe into a more sustainable one. Yes, that’s right, I mean I’m trying to wear clothing that are made from sustainable, biodegradable fabrics. It’s not easy, because most of these materials are expensive and hard to find in normal stores. It’s not like you’ll find them easily in the high street stores. 

I want to talk about this amazing brand called Patra which sells some of the most affordable and luxurious natural-made clothing that I’ve seen. I’m so glad to have received two items for review, as I want to show you how I style my biodegradable and natural clothing in stylish and cool ways. 

A bit about the brand- Patra is a brand that specializes in cashmere, silk and cotton clothing for men and women. Patra Selections was established in 1964 and their aim is to make the highest quality items from pure fabrics, without compromising on style. It is this ethos of affordable luxury that keeps loyal customers coming back - they know that when they buy Patra they won't be disappointed. Their range features affordable yet high-end clothing made from some of the world’s most biodegradable and natural materials, which means that they’re non-allergic, natural and super comfortable to wear. Patra also designs their own clothing so all of their garments are exquisite and beautiful to wear. 

I’m lucky enough to be able to style this gorgeous Timeless White Silk Shirt from Patra’s latest collection. This white silk shirt is made from pure silk, which feels so soft and smooth. Silk is unlike any other fabric that you’ll ever wear as it’s light, thin and breathable at the same time. Usually, fast fashion brands try to imitate silk by using polyester, which I am guilty of owning a lot of. However, polyester is not breathable and doesn’t decompose at all if you throw it away. What a waste! Plus it doesn’t let your skin breath, and is also quite harmful for your skin to wear in the long-run.

This gorgeous blouse fits perfectly and looks amazing. I got a size small, which fits my UK 8-10 frame. I’d say that the blouse is stunning because it’s got a lovely heavy texture, and feels so smooth and supple. Silk is gorgeous and looks elegant, put-together and is perfect for work. I wear mine to work and to school, and it looks absolutely great with a skirt or a pair of trousers. 

In terms of the quality, Patra’s items are impeccably made and designed wonderfully. The shirt fits me well, frames my shoulders perfectly and is stitched up really nicely. None of it feels loose or fragile, and this shirt is totally wholesome and great as a gift for your loved ones. 

The second item that I got is Patra’s own signature Fuji Silk trousers. I’m so in love with silk but have never worn silk trousers before so I thought I’d give it a go as I needed a pair for work. It’s absolutely wonderful and lovely, and feels so supple and comfortable to wear. These trousers are tapered and fitting, so it isn’t too loose or too baggy. The elasticated waist means that it fits women of all shapes and sizes comfortably, and is also very easy to put on.

The item is made from 100% Fuji Silk which feels quite luxurious and heavy on, and it isn't see through at all which is what I'm most worried about. I love the feel of silk on my legs, and it isn't everyday that you can find such affordable and high-quality silk trousers. It's extremely breathable, and suitable for work as I'm going to be sitting all day and what is better than to feel the silk material on your skin! 

As for the comfort and quality, this pair of trousers impressed me a lot as they’re very well-made and is of extremely high quality. These trousers usually sell for 3 times the price in other stores, but because Patra is so affordable, these trousers are definitely not too expensive for the everyday woman. They’re extremely well made, feature a belt-loop and also pockets for convenience. Overall, I'm extremely happy with these trousers and I’ll be wearing them for work and for casual days too! It’s so versatile! 

All in all, I’m extremely happy with Patra’s items and their quality is unbelievable. Their prices are also extremely reasonable, and I cannot recommend them enough. If you want to change your wardrobe into a sustainable one (and you should for the sake of this Earth), or just want to invest in some pieces that can last you for years to come, do visit Patra and check out their gorgeous range of clothing.
