Our wool is naturally insulating while breathable; easy to care for, and will not shrink in the wash. Wool is also easy to keep clean because of keratin fibers that naturally make it less able to retain odors and stains. 

Our merino and jersey wools come from US merino sheep that are raised in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States. The wool is shorn without harming the sheep, who graze and live freely on acres upon acres of natural land. Our wool is some of the best quality for fineness, color and length.

Our wool partner is a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact and is NATIVA™ carbon positive. Our wool is of upmost quality, but also of high sustainability, human rights, animal welfare standards.

 

Wool naturally biodegrades at the end of its lifecycle.

 

Our wool does not itch, but is rather soft and luxurious to the touch. Our wool also has a generous stretch given the knitting technique used.

Our wool is 100% hypoallergenic.

Hemp is noteworthy for being soil-regenerative, carbon isolating, water-saving, non-reliant on herbicides and pesticides, naturally antimicrobial, durable, biodegradable and so much more.

 

It is truly one of the most remarkable crops for textiles. Our American Hemp is organically grown and processed using organic chemicals that are covered under the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification and are 100% recyclable.

Did you know that cotton is a flower?

 

Our Organic Cotton is grown in Texas by the Texas Organic Cotton Co-Op comprised of family farms, and is processed in North Carolina by a family-owned mill.

 

Due to using organic farming practices, our organic cotton mainly relies on rainwater and has zero toxic chemicals present.

Our Organic Cotton is soft to the touch, flexible, durable and processed with care to preserve the natural qualities of the flower. ​

We are excited to bring spotlight to our US organic cotton waffle knit, ribs, sherpa and more.

We use some fabrics that are a blend of fair trade hemp and organic cotton. By fair trade, we certify that the textile is also free trade; wages and hours are reasonable, and working conditions are safe and comfortable. Our partners are also part of the Fair Wear Foundation.

 

When hemp and organic cotton are blended, the comfort of the textile becomes far greater than if just using hemp alone. At the same time, organic cotton also becomes much more durable when blended with hemp. We like this combination because it adds a unique texture to the finished product that is comforting, soft, flexible and better with age.

We believe silk should be used not just for delicate adornment, but also functionality. Our silk is intended to be used for every occasion, from hiking to dining. Our silk is washable, durable and better with age.

Our silk is sourced from fine producers throughout Southeast Asia, where the cultivation and processing of fine silk has existed for centuries. 

Silk is naturally biodegradable, and a renewable resource. It also uses less water, chemicals, and energy than many other fibers.
