Our philosophy is to encourage waste reduction and environmental preservation. We use natural, locally sourced and environmentally conscious textiles whenever possible.
Hemp is an extremely fast growing crop that produces much higher yields per acre than cotton, flax (linen) and many other plants. The roots anchor and protect soil from runoff and the leaves shed all throughout the growing season acting as a fertilizer and leaving the soil in a rich and healthy condition. Hemp requires few pesticides and no herbicides to grow.
Linen comes from the flax plant. Flax grows naturally and requires less water and fewer pesticides than cotton, making it gentler on the environment. Flax is a natural fibre that is biodegradable and can be recycled into paper and insulation materials. And additionally, the entire plant can be used, leaving no waste. Flax is easy to incorporate into modern crop rotation cycles which prevents soil depletion. Very little energy is required to process flax and the yarns made from flax fibres are inherently strong reducing the need for starching during fabric production.
We prefer to use non genetically modified cotton grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. Our cotton is certified to the Organic Exchange 100 Standard.
Buttons are resurrected from old collections and vintage clothes and reused as one of a kind accents on many of our garments and accessories.
The recycled cotton fabric we use is certified to the Oeko-Tex 100 standard.
The regenerated wool fabric we use is certified to the Oeko-Tex 100 standard.
