Materials & Processes

 

WOOL

Our wool (washed, combed, dyed and spun exclusively in Italy) comes from farms carefully selected by our mill Lanecadarte. A family of entrepreneurs passionately operating in the wool business since 1663. The precious raw material and Italian skills, culture and tradition result in the excellence of the yarn and like a fine wine, matures. Improving after each wash, time after time. Sustainability is important to our mill and the yarn wool supports SustainaWOOLTM for eco-sustainability in animal welfare.

All our knitted garments are made in England using STOLL technology. Founded over 145 years ago, we work with a STOLL specialist in providing highly sophisticated and innovative knitted garments. Each knitted garment is finished with care, passion and know-how of generations.

 

 

ORGANIC COTTON

We have worked with our Italian Shirting Mill Canclini weaving a striped organic cotton shirting which we will be launching next year. Organic clothing is clothing made from materials raised in or grown in compliance with organic agricultural standards. Our new shirting will be GOTS certified.

We will also be finishing our shirts with our new branded buttons which are made from 100% polyester in a mock mother-of-pearl finish. MOP buttons were once a staple of high-end tailored shirts, jackets and coats but their origins are now rarely seen so we have decided to move away and have chosen a more sustainable alternative. Our new shirt buttons are more durable, requiring less chemicals and processing achieving the look we desire. 

 

 

SILK

Our Silk Turband Collection was crafted from our silk satin offcuts, reducing waste in production. Wastage is an issue at all stages of a garments life span and we do what we can to reduce waste at each stage in our process. We work very hard to keep our cutting as tight as possible, not only to ensure we reduce our footprint but to also minimise costs which is always passed on to you, the customer.

We want to ensure that we utilise every inch of our fabrics by designing efficiently and re-using all our material. Creating unique and sustainable branded products - we give a new lease of life to our production offcuts for our customers. Each piece is handmade in the UK.
