Our material

GOTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON

Our cotton is gots certified. Global organic textile standard is the most stringent international biotex certification. It means that fabric contains at least 95% of organic cotton. The production of organic cotton t-shirt consumes 20% less water, has a smaller carbon footprint and does not pollute the rivers as much as production of the regular cotton t-shirt. Less chemicals used for growing the cotton means less chemicals on your skin.

DEADSTOCK

A percentage of fabrics is left unused during the garment production. Many times these are good quality fabrics but in small quantity, which is not attractive for big brands.  Companies often throw such fabrics away, but we give them a second chance. By using deadstock fabric, we save thousands of litres of water. The process of transforming waste and unwanted materials into new products is called upcycling.

LINEN

The production of linen fabrics is fully sustainable and has wonderful qualities – it´s biodegradable, hypoallergenic, good temperature equalizer during summer days, durable and looks better over time. We love linen.
LOCAL COOPERATION

We appreciate the existence of small Slovakian businesses. Some of “our fabrics” (wool, denim) are purchased from local producer. The cooperation with local people supports the local production. 100% wool used for our coats was made in Slovakia.
