Sustainability Commitment


PRODUCTION:

We do small batch productions with the goal of keeping a small carbon footprint, we do our best to monitor our carbon output and donate to plant trees when certain thresholds have been reached. We prototype every item ourselves by hand, we do not work with offshore factories for that nor do we design through excel sheets. Many old school manufacturing methods are friendlier to the environment, we believe in staying grounded and simplifying our work process and using simple machines with low impact.

LEAST TOXIC MATERIALS

A commitment to sourcing fabrics that have the least toxic impact to our planet. Using either fabrics that use no chemicals in production or in some cases going by a closed loop system where chemicals are contained, reused and never released into nature.

NATURAL FABRICS

The fabrics we have been using for thousands of years are the kindest to the planet. They need less cleaning and last longer. They are also more comfortable and warm. Garments made of natural fibers can become heirlooms and be of use to more than one generation.

HEMP:

One of the oldest types of textile in the world. Hemp plants grow very quickly, without the use of chemical herbicides or pesticides and produce high yield commercial crops which optimize both land use and available resources. Hemp also returns a significant amount of the nutrients it takes from the soil leaving it rich and ready for new crops.

Exceptionally strong, naturally hypoallergenic, having UV protection and the ability to help with thermo-regulation.

MERINO WOOL:

We use wool that has been ethically harvested from Australian farmers who use humane methods and do not hurt or harm the animals.

Benefits: Wool uses 18% less energy than polyester and nearly 70% less water than cotton to produce 100 sweaters. Wool is 100% biodegradable so does not contribute to micro-plastic pollution in our oceans or on our land. Natural, renewable and biodegradable, wool is the most reused and recyclable fibre on the planet of the major apparel fibers.

TENCEL LYOCELL:

TENCEL™ Lyocell & TENCEL™ Modal & Modal are types of rayon cellulose fiber derived from sustainable wood sources that are harvested from renewable tree groves.  Low toxicity solvents are used (and recycled to be used again) to convert wood pulp into fiber.
