We carefully select textiles that are durable and easy to care for — at once utilitarian and beautiful, easy to pack yet inherently refined. We use as many circular, organic, and responsibly-produced materials as possible, each treated with low environmental impact dyes or washing processes.
Below, a list of current materials and their origins:
Lyocell is a soft, strong fiber made from primarily eucalyptus wood pulp and created through a closed-loop process. Eucalyptus trees grow rapidly without artificial irrigation, gene manipulation or synthetic pesticides, making lyocell a better raw material for water consumption and pollution. Lyocell’s smooth fiber surface and round cross-section also allow it to retain dye well with minimal water or chemical dyes. Highly absorbent and moisture wicking, fewer washings may be needed, resulting in water and energy savings from reduced laundering.
Our denim is 100% cotton, 40% of which is BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) cotton. BCI trains its cotton farmers to use water more efficiently, care for the health of the soil and natural habitats, minimize the use of harmful crop protection practices, and implement decent labor practices. We use V Sizing for our dye process, which is a vegetal compound that is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic, and replaces all hazardous chemicals including PVA, resulting in a microplastics-free dye process.
Our knitwear is produced in Peru by a workshop started by two women who each spent ten years working in the local knitwear market before beginning their own business. They maintain strong relationships with their clients and their local artisans to execute beautiful, quality garments. Their company respects their artisans, pays them in advance for their time, and partners with them on all aspects of their work. Since 2015, we have maintained a strong partnership with them, and are currently working together with the workshop and their GOTS-certified yarn mills to innovate solutions to avoid yarn waste.
We are proud to continue to work together with this small, women-run workshop and to honor the skills and traditions of knitwear production in Peru.
