Our commitment to sustainability is deeply interwoven into the textiles we choose. Each fabric reflects meticulous care, an appreciation for timeless quality, and an unwavering dedication to our planet. As you explore our collection, you'll come to understand that every material we use isn't just a choice for aesthetics or feel, but a conscious step towards a more sustainable future in fashion.
A more sustainable alternative to conventional cotton, our organic cotton is cultivated without the use of synthetic fertilizers or harmful pesticides. This eco-friendly approach ensures healthier soil, reduces water consumption, and promotes a balanced ecosystem.
Prized for its natural insulating qualities, our wool is sourced with the utmost care for animal welfare and the environment. We partner with reputable British and Italian mills, guaranteeing wool that's not only of superior quality but also ethically obtained.
Comprising nearly 30% of our annual collections, linen originates from the eco-friendly flax plant. With minimal water and fertiliser needs, its softness and low environmental impact make it a staple for our spring and summer lines.
A shining star in the realm of sustainable fabrics, Tencel (also known as Lyocell) is derived from wood pulp, primarily from eucalyptus, spruce, and beech trees. Produced in a closed-loop process, it ensures nearly all solvents and water are recycled. Tencel offers a silk-like feel, moisture-wicking properties, and a minimal environmental footprint.
We continue to use Corozo buttons in our production as much as possible (38% of all buttons in 2023). Corozo is a completely natural and sustainable product also known as “vegetable ivory” It comes from the fruit of a palm tree plant indigenous to Ecuadorian micro-climates.
If you have perused our garments before, you will have noticed that we label linen (or a blended garment with over 40% linen) and certain wools as ecological. This is because linen has a low environmental impact due to its low water and insecticide requirements. Similarly, certain wools we used are deemed ecological because they are undyed.
