Why Natural Fibers?

We use all natural fibers for a variety of reasons. Firstly, it tends to be more comfortable than any synthetic fiber. Natural fibers have breathable capabilities which help your skin breathe and regulate temperature. They are beautiful visually - no synthetic can compare. They age well, and they grow more beautiful with age and wear. They are healthy for the planet - they contain no micro fibers, allowing them to fully break down into the earth.

Linen is one of the few fibers that improves with age. With washing and wearing, linen softens up beautifully, while retaining that beautiful textured look. Breathable, durable, low maintenance, hypo-allergenic, it's an ideal fabric to wear in both hot and cold climates.

Made from the flax plant, Linen is also environmentally friendly - it's a biodegradable textile. The Flax crop requires few pesticides, and often comes close to the organic standard without even trying. This makes linen a renewable resource, it can be produced without damaging the environment. Additionally, linen requires far less water to produce than cotton, natural rainfall is enough to irrigate flax crops grown in Europe.
The flax plant roots enrich the soil they’re grown in, and every single part of the flax plant can be used - from textiles to paper,  animal feed to oil, even varnish and bio-materials. It reduces our carbon footprint! One hectare of flax can take 3.7 tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere.

Our wool is made in Italy, using 100% extra fine merino lambswool which is natural, renewable and biodegradable .
Wool from the Merino sheep has the softest hand and is the most suitable wool to be worn against skin, unlikely to cause itching.
The Merino sheep’s wool fiber is known for being fine, soft and strong, keeping your warm while remaining lightweight and maintaining its elasticity. Wool has the same moisture wicking capabilities as linen, keeping you temperate and dry. 
Sustainable - every year, the merino sheep produces a new layer of wool, making the process completely sustainable.
