We are passionate not only about sustainability in all its forms, but also about accountability, public knowledge, transparency and the spreading of knowledge. We believe in disrupting current fashion systems, and in continuously challenging ourselves, our practices, and the status quo.
We are consistently working to improve our sourcing and production practices to not only avoid bringing harm to the planet and its people, but also to benefit them: to make fashion a positive impact on our planet.
From an ecological point of view, we do our best to work only with repurposed, responsibly- sourced and made, organic and ethical materials in our practice. We work with GOTS and Oeko-Tex certified fibres, GRS fibres (only 100% recycled), some BCI (although we try to minimize this for better cotton), natural and sustainable dyeing, organic and ethical wool and mohair, ethical alpaca, recycled plastic, recycled housewares and objects, vintage and antique trims, organic peace silk, and certified Tencel and Lyocell. We do our best to avoid and offset emissions where and when possible in shipping.
From a social point of view, we work only with manufacturers and makers whose ethos align with ours: mainly social cooperatives, working with women rehabilitating from and in prison, women with fragilities, and African refugees in the creation of our knitwear.
We are a knitwear-focused brand, because not only is that what we are passionate about, but because we are also able to use only what is necessary to create our garments, knitting itself being a practically zero waste practice. Through this craft, we are also able to work with highly skilled, diverse and authentic makers and artisans. We are conscious to re-use any scraps, trial samples and toiles in new unique pieces, accessories, and in our upcycling textile processes.We will remain transparent and accountable and will detail all of our materials, trims, certifications, traceability, values and manufacturers, as well as the hands and stories that made the garments come to life, upon request and through stories told through our platforms.
We are committed to continuously investing in research and collaborating with innovators who are breaking boundaries with regards to consumption systems, the value and meaning behind clothing, and the development of pieces and practices that are not only circular and sustainable, but also serve to hopefully rectify damage done by humans for a people and planet outlook and full-circle ethos. For this reason, our goal is to bridge the gap between science and fashion because we believe that innovation in climate solutions in fashion lies in this mission connection. Sourcing responsibly for us is not enough, but only the beginning to creating new ways of consuming and engaging with fashion.
