MATERIALS

Natural Recycled Wool

It is an ecological yarn generated from collected knit clothes in France, which are sorted by yarn and color. Once shredded, a new yarn is elaborated from these new fibers. Unintended error may occur during this sorting process, that is why it is 95% natural wool guaranteed. This yarn, made of 4 threads, is smooth, soft and puffy with an exquisite hand feel, and a subtle mélange rendering.

Organic Cotton

Organic cotton means that the cotton has been grown on fields without the use of chemical fertilisers, pesticides and defoliants. Only natural fertilisers such as compost and animal manure are allowed. Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are prohibited in organic products.

Organic cotton counts for less than 1% of the total cotton production. 1% is too little. This is why we fight to change the status quo.

Linen

Linen. It’s the luxurious fabric you want to wear every time summer rolls around. It makes you feel like you’re on a yacht in the Mediterranean when you’re wearing it.

It’s one of the oldest fibres known, dating back to 8000BC. 80% of the world’s production of linen is originated from Europe, and France is the world leader.  It is resilient and can grow in poor soil, using far less water in its consumption than cotton.

Linen is one of the most biodegradable and stylish fabrics in fashion history. It is durable, strong, naturally moth resistant and, when untreated (i.e. not dyed) it is fully biodegradable. It’s natural colors include ivory, ecru, tan and grey. Linen can withstand high temperatures – making the fabric perfect for kids for playing . It absorbs moisture without holding bacteria. 

Because of the laborious time it takes to produce linen yarn, and the manual processes that have to be undertaken, linen has become a higher priced commodity, and considered among many to be a ‘luxury’ fabric.

Recycled silk

Recycled silk yarn is a lovely fiber that also happens to help people and the planet. As the name implies, it is made from recycled Sari, more specifically the waste of Sari’s making as well as Saris’ collection leftover in India . The yarn is hand-spun by women in the Tamil Nadu province of India, giving them a way to work and earn money. 3 threads are needed for giving this recycled yarn.

Because the hanks of recycled silk yarn are made individually, each one is unique. There’s no dye lot on recycled silk yarn, and even if you buy two hanks from the same manufacturer at the same time, there’s no guarantee that the colors are going to be the same. But that is the beauty of using recycled silk. Each piece has its individuality, and everything you make from the yarn is its work of art, completely unique.

Cashmere

Cashmere is one of the most valuable natural materials in fashion and we are helping to protect the future of this incredible material by redefining ‘waste’.

Virgin cashmere has the highest environmental impact – roughly 100 times that of wool. That’s why we do not use virgin cashmere in our knitwear collections. Instead, our collections are made from re-engineered cashmere, which offers the same soft, insulating qualities as cashmere. Just without the environmental impact associated with animal raising

Regenerated cashmere is made from post-factory cashmere waste in Italy. Using this material demonstrates our commitment to making fashion circular, which means an industry that is restorative and regenerative by design. The process is Global Recycle Standard certified (GRS) which ensure that all the recycling steps are traceable.

We reduced our environmental impact enormously
