OUR FABRICS

Linen Our love for linen is strong. Linen comes from the flax plant, a very resilient plant that can grow in poor soil and needs very little - to no pesticides. The growing temperatures range from 10°C and 39°C. Every part of the flax plant can be used to create a worthwhile product, so very little is wasted. Linen also requires far less water than cotton to produce. It’s one of the oldest fibres known to man, and yet since 1992 it only counts for 1% of the world’s apparel fibre production. We’d love to help change this! To make your linens last always wash them at 0-30°C and by hand. Hang them on a hanger to dry in the shade. Our Linen is Oeko-Tex Certified and manufactured in Italy, but sometimes also in Spain, France, Portugal, and Germany. It’s fibre origin is Turkey.

 

Upcycled Cotton We are very happy to have started incorporating upcycled cotton into our collections. We source GDR second-hand white bed sheets from all over Germany. There is a huge supply and we find them in great condition, thickly woven and stronger than most cottons you find in fabric stores today. We love the quality and it feels great to recycle a pre-existing product, allowing us to tread lighter in the world of clothing production. Any bed sheets with imperfections we use for our printed fabric. We hand print with eco friendly textile paint and the busy pattern conceals any marks or blemishes. This technique of painting or hand dying directly onto the fabric, followed by heat setting, means no colour is washed down the drain. We store the colour for next time. We’ve also started Upcycling 100% cotton Molton mattress protectors. They are a lovely warm fabric for Winter. We wash them, dye them, cut them up to create our Jackets and long-sleeve Tunics.  

  

Organic Cotton Our Jersey, Sweat, Ribbing and Canvas is Organic. Organic fabrics are all fabrics that have GOTS or Oeko-Tex certification. These certifications mean that environmentally friendly production is ensured. Organic fabrics are therefore low in pollutants, sustainable and skin-friendly. They are only provided with natural fertilizer (e.g. compost) so that they remain free of chemicals.

This is not only beneficial for environmentally friendly production, but also reduces the risk of allergic reactions. The production process for the organic fabrics also requires minimal energy consumption, so that the earth's energy resources are conserved.
