Contribute To Our Planet & Buy Sustainable, Recyclable Fashion!
Moving towards a greener lifestyle is now considered to be everyone's responsibility. It is our duty as consumers to reduce the negative effects of the fast fashion industry, such as the exploitation of human resources, toxic and chemically manufactured fabrics, and the excessive use of artificial and harmful materials.
On a happy note, Les Sultanas uses Natural, Biodegradable materials, Comprising of Innovative Fibers and Smart Textiles; whilst fusing traditional and sustainable techniques to ethically produce hijabs for women.
We Give Our Queens Confidence That Their Hijab Choices Are Environmentally Responsible.
Les Sultanas' new Organic Hijab Collection is made with LENZING™ EVERCO™ Certified 100% Natural Modal Fabric; this fabric technology offers a natural softness, and supple feel we know can be effortlessly styled - and we're here for it!
LENZING™ is certified as a Biodegradable & Compostable fabric.
LENZING™ Modal is one of the most sustainable fabrics in the textile industry, made from sustainably harvested beech trees, a replenishable raw material derived from innovative environmental processes not commercially used.
Luxurious Is The Best Way We Would Describe LENZING™ Modal.
Modal is a Luxurious, Durable, and Sustainable textile. Here at Les Sultanas, we believe Modal is perfect for hijab if it is derived from certified renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process that meets high environmental standards; LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers are tailored to a sustainable lifestyle, contributing to a cleaner environment.
These non-toxic technologies have allowed recovery of up to 95% of production materials, using a closed-loop system, minimizing emissions, conserving resources while using an environmentally friendly bleaching method for pulp, protecting the biomes and local communities.
This is why we have invested in new weaves, fibers, and qualities so that we can bring you the best selection. LENZING™ Modal is great for moisture control due to the breathable fiber technology. It's also Soft and Flexible in its qualities. This makes it a wonderful hijab to wear all year round.
As Modal is long-lasting, it doesn't pill easily (or at all!), which means wash after wash; your hijab will last you for years to come.
Yes, it's more expensive in comparison to other low-quality fabrics you may see on the market, but the benefits and value you will gain from wearing Modal are immense. It's worth investing in.
Make The Right Choice, Protect The Earth!
KEY BENEFITS OF LENZING™ ECOVERO™:
✔ SUSTAINABLE WOOD AND PULP SOURCING:
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers are produced using pulp, which is derived from the renewable resource wood as raw material.
The 2017 Hot Button Report of the Canadian non-profit organization Canopy ranked LENZING as one of the best performing fiber producers worldwide for its sustainable wood and pulp sourcing practices. LENZING was ranked in the high "light green shirt" category, indicating that there is a very low risk of sourcing wood from ancient and endangered forests when using LENZING™ fibers.
✔ CERTIFIED ECO-RESPONSIBLE:
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ is manufactured only from certified and controlled wood sources and produced with significantly lower fossil energy use and water than generic viscose and conventional cotton.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ branded fibers are certified with the internationally recognized EU Ecolabel. This label of environmental excellence is only awarded to products and services which have a significantly lower environmental impact throughout their lifecycle: from raw material extraction to production, distribution, and disposal.
✔ 50% LOWER EMISSIONS & WATER IMPACT:
The manufacturing of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers generates up to 50% lower emissions and water impact compared to generic viscose and conventional cotton.
✔ 100% BIODEGRADABLE:
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers can fully decompose in just 3 months, compared to conventional polyester taking 200+ years.
Derived From Nature, Returns To Nature.

Pre Order FAQ
Items labelled "Pre Order" are made in batches after the collection is dropped. There is usually a waiting time from 3 to 8 weeks (can be more due to international shipping delays). Our items are handmade in our atelier in China, this is why we need to wait until a large amount is produced before it's shipped out to France. The sooner you order your pre order item, the sooner you get to enjoy it !
There are many reasons why operating on pre order is best for everyone.
1. We reduce waste as we produce only what has been bought with some very little extra items. At the end of each seasonal collections, we don't have any left over, therefore, no waste.
2. Back in 2021, we used to take about 2 to 3 months to receive inventory (again, the delivery takes the longest) and we would sell out in days. Customers were constantly frustrated and some couldn't grab anything for an entire season. Since they last 6 months and it can take up to 3 months to get an inventory, it meant that we could restock only once.
Thanks to the pre order process, even if the delays are still long (and we are working on that for 2023-24), customers can pre order whenever they feel like it, no pressure, everyone can have their favourite items each season.
Since we charge for shipping once, orders that contain at least one pre order items will be shipped together, once it's all ready.
If you wish to get your non pre order items before we invite you to either place 2 separate orders or to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to pay for shipping twice so we can process your order twice.
Pre orders operate on a very different and complex system and cannot be cancelled after 48H. We work as fast as possible to start the productions and ship the items asap.
Placing a pre order is still an actual order and is binding. Please think twice before ordering as we have people handmaking your items and making sure everyone gets what they ordered. Cancellations create major issues.
Thank you for your understanding.
Yes. If you missed the 48H cancellation window or want to return your pre order items for any reason after you received them, you can email us asap at email@example.com . Please check the Return Policy page on our website to get more details on our return process.
