Our thoughtful approach means that every aspect of production is considered. The origin of our fibres, the manufacturing process, the trims, labels and the packaging that we use, are all carefully chosen. We are passionate about making intentional choices as we seek to reduce waste and find better practices that help make a positive ecological impact.
By designing timeless and made to last garments, we hope that our pieces can be worn and loved, cared for, and mended when necessary to last for many years.

We're very picky about the materials we choose to work with. High quality fabrics and fibres not only last longer, but also feel noticeably different to touch. We believe that when pieces feel amazing to wear, you will reach for them more often and treat them with care.
Linen is considered to be the oldest fabric in the world. It is naturally antibacterial and extremely durabl. It is machine washable, dries quickly, and gets stronger with wear.
The production process requires significantly less water than cotton, and almost all of the flax plant can be used which means there is very little waste of the plant.
Our linen is from Lithuania, and is Standard 100 OEKO-TEX® certified.
All our cotton has been GOTS certified. This certification guarantees the traceability of the organic cotton, as well as the standard of fair treatment to every person involved in the supply chain.
To more than one million small alpaca farmers in the central Andes, alpacas are an essential pillar for livelihood as well as cultural identity.
There are over twenty different natural colours of alpaca fibres, classified into nine pure colours, with many other subtle shades and hues. Which allows for many beautiful colour options without needing to be dyed.
Compared to other animal fibres, alpaca has a low grease content which means that much less energy and chemicals are required to treat the water for the washing process.
Our wool comes from the Andean highlands, and is un-dyed. It's incredibly soft, which isn't a typical characteristic of wool, but definitely one that made us fall in love with this fibre.
Our yarns are spun by farmers in Peru that are committed to sustainability, as well as a deep connection to their local communities.
We work only with animal-friendly farmers that ensure the Alpaca's and Sheep aren't harmed but are treated with care.
Small Batch Collections
We have chosen to release small batch collections roughly four times per year. This helps us reduce unnecessary waste as we are still learning our customer demand, while also keeping our collections really speical.
We are a slow fashion brand. We recognize that things take time, and that there are people behind the clothing we wear. By not subscribing to the typical fast fashion calendar, we are able to allow the time for our garments to be made well with respect to those involved in making them. The artisans and manufacturers that we work with are an integral part of our brand, and we really value the relationships we have built with them.
Our linen is made in Lithuania by company that specializes in the weaving, finishing and sewing of linen products.
The factory is certified in OEKO-TEX® and EUROPEAN FLAX® which guarantees of Environmental and Social Responsibility, with certified Traceability through the fibre’s global and European value chains.
Our knitwear is handcrafted in Peru by an ethical and Fair Trade certified, woman-run company. They employ highly skilled artisan groups which empower women to generate income and economic independence while working from or near home.
Their handloom and hand weaving Artisans maintain traditional production methods and artistry that has been handed down for generations. We also use yarns that are grown and spun in Peru, which eliminates unnessary shipping.
We have partnered with a local seamstress to produce some exclusive Canadian-made pieces for our brand. She grew up in France and receieved her degree in fashion design. She sews each piece by hand in her home, which happens to be a few minutes down the road from where I live. Her attention to detail and craftsmanship is exceptional, and it has been a joy to work closely with her.
