Materials used in our Collections
Our philosophy is to support a sustainable future by designing and producing clothes that should last for many years. The materials we use are natural materials like merino wool, silk, cashmere, baby alpaca and goose down.
We want you to be able to enjoy your garments for a long time, therefore it is important that you treat your piece of clothes cautiously and follow our recommended washing instructions. As far as possible we repair clothes in Norway, fortunately we have a minimal with reclamations. We can help repairing clothes even if the damage is not a production failure.
We use alpaca fur on our down coats. All fur used in our production is exclusively from animals that has suffered a natural death in the mountains of Peru. They live up to 3.600 meters above sea level and the weather conditions are harsh during the rain season. The temperature differs from +20 degrees Celsius to -20 degrees Celsius. Heavy hail of ice balls also occurs frequently during this season. These rough weather conditions cause the death of 15% of baby alpacas between 0-3 months of life. There is nothing we can do about such rough weather conditions and we think it is important to utilize the natural recourses available instead of producing artificial fur that might harm our globe.
We use both goose down from Italy and China. The Italian goose down we use is recycled. The Chinese Goose down is from food production, and we only use down picked from dead animals.
The merino wool used in our production comes from producers not practicing mulesing on their sheep. We are not tolerating any form of mulesing, including clips, tail, skinning/stripping, right through to a full mules. Our producers verify that the wool has been processed separately and the integrity of the batch has been maintained throughout the processing supply chain.
