We work with comfortable and versatile fabrics that are both durable and distinctive. It is very important that we use materials and methods that have a lower impact on the environment and the end consumer. We avoid using the harmful chemicals and substances used in conventional production as much as possible. Each garment has its composition that can consist of mixes of the materials listed below. For specific instructions, see each garment’s product page.
Acrylic is a synthetic or manufactured fiber that is both soft and lightweight that retains shape and texture after washing and drying. It dries easily and is machine washable.
With its thin fibres, angora is a naturally soft and silky material. We use angora in our heavy-knits for its unique softness and character. We always suggest that you take extra care with them, preferably washing by hand or on a wool cycle in the washing machine. Never tumble dry.
Comfortable and versatile, we use organic cotton in most of our garments. It is the perfect fibre since it is easy to wear and care for. Cotton is fully machine-washable and if worn and treated with care, will last for a long time. A majority of our collections are made from organic GOTS-certified cotton.
Elastan / Spandex/ Lycra
Easy to care for, elastan is a strong and resistant fabric. It is often used to blend a little with cotton to help the cotton keep its shape. Can be washed in 40 degrees or higher temperature and tumble dried.
Silk is a natural material that is both soft and durable. Silk absorbs moisture, which makes it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It is a delicate fabric that might need extra care. It is very sensitivt to direct sunlight and high temperatures. Hand-wash if possible in lukewarm, soapy water without soaking it or in extra delicate washing program on 30 degrees, preferably in washing bag.
With its different structures, polyester is a versatile fabric that can take on almost any form. Easy to care for, polyester is a strong and resistant fabric. It can be washed 40 degrees or higher temperature and tumble dried. Starting AW12, we also use recycled polyester.
Wool is very durable with a natural resiliency and has a soft, warm feel. Its unique properties allow shaping and tailoring, but will shrink in warm water. To wash wool, hand wash in cold or lukewarm water with a mild detergent and rinse thoroughly. Always air dry. The combination of heat, friction and pressure will cause shrinkage. Do not hang to dry or wring since the fabric will stretch from the weight of the water and flat dry on towel.
Viscose is a semi-synthetic material containing natural fibres from wood pulp treated with chemicals. It has a silky appearance and feel, and has the ability to breathe in a manner similar to cotton. Viscose clothing is to be washed inside out at a maximum of 40°C on a delicates program.
