Materials we work with

  1. Linen

    The environmentally friendly cultivation of flax requires five times less fertiliser and pesticides than the cultivation of conventional cotton. Flax cultivation does not require additional irrigation, as the plant's natural rainwater supply is sufficient to grow. One hectare of flax stores 3.7 tonnes of CO2 every year.
    Moreover, the processing of the flax plant into linen fibre is purely mechanical - without the addition of chemicals.

    Linen is a very stable, enormously tear-resistant fibre that has both anti-allergic and anti-bacterial properties. The fibre also regulates temperature: it insulates in winter and remains cool and breathable in summer. It can also absorb up to 20 percent of its weight in moisture and release it back into the air, keeping its cool and dry feel. Because the linen fibre can be spun very thinly, the linen fabric is smooth and traps very little air. So it is lint-free for a long time and stays clean easily. Linen does not tend to build up static electricity and is dirt-repellent.

  2. Organic cotton

    Unlike conventional cotton, organic cotton is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilisers. It is more expensive than conventional cotton, but represents one of the most sustainable materials around. We only use GOTS certified organic cotton that is harvested by hand without the use of chemical fertilisers or pesticides under fair conditions. Our pre-washed organic cotton is skin-friendly, soft and made to be worn for many years.

  3. Recycled cotton

    Used garments or textile remnants made of cotton can be recycled. The consumption of virgin material can therefore be reduced enormously. Since recycled cotton cannot be processed properly alone, it's blended with organic cotton when spun into a new fibre. This ensures a high quality and long-lasting quality.

  4. Recycled wool

    It is important to us that we avoid new yarn as far as possible, especially for animal products, and switch to recycled yarns. Recycled wool offers the possibility to use the advantages of warming wool without affecting the animal world. This way, we give wool remnants and old wool textiles a new life and enjoy the beautiful natural material and its properties for many years more.

  5. Recycled cashmere

    Cashmere is one of the most exclusive materials as it is very soft and warm in spite of its light weight. Unfortunately, it has the highest environmental impact of all the raw materials used in production chains - about 100 times as much as wool.

    We go for the more animal-friendly and sustainable option and only use recycled cashmere. The cashmere comes from used jumpers that are washed and brought back to fibre condition to be reused in the spinning cycle. The special process creates a lively, timeless melange effect. In this way, the precious raw material is not wasted and gets a second chance.
