We are constantly working toward sourcing the best textiles for our collections and choose those made from all natural fibers, our favorites being linen and cotton.
Our linen canvas twill used in our classic workwear styles is Oeko Tex Certified meaning it has been tested and certified to be free from toxic levels of more than 100 substances known to be harmful to human health. Beginning with Spring 21 we are excited to have replaced our linen/rayon blend fabric for a new machine washable 100% linen and to re introduce 100% organic cotton knitwear to the collection.
We source our alpaca yarns from a Peruvian mill that supports the surrounding farming communities made up of hundreds of families who live at high elevation and rely on alpaca farming as their primary economic activity. Alpaca's are a sustainable choice for animal fibers as they are gentle on the land and do not damage it with their grazing or use it for their water or food production. Alpaca fiber is naturally hypoallergenic as it free of lanolin, an oil that holds dust and microscopic allergens. It requires less water and fewer chemicals and energy than other animal fibers to process and grows in a variety of natural shades which can eliminate an additional dye process. The alpaca we use is Okeo Tex Certified, meaning it is certified free of over 100 toxic substances know to be harmful to humans and the environment.
