We are committed to using natural fabrics and absolutely no synthetics, find out why here. For more information on the fabrics that we use and of your particular garment , we have listed them below. For information on care of these fabrics please see our care guide.
Our shoes and handbags are made with full grain aniline cow hide. Our leather is sourced locally (99%). The leather used is a by-product of the meat-industry. For this reason you will find natural markings on the leather. Cows are not farmed specifically for their leather. The leather we choose is of the highest quality, but because of its natural nature every single scratch or tick mark can be seen. It is biodegradable.
100% rayon is made from wood pulp cellulose and put through a chemical process, creating a man-made, natural fibre. Rayon has a silk-like aesthetic with a superb drape. It is soft, smooth, cool and comfortable. It can absorb water and sweat, so it’s perfect to wear in summers, also as a substitute for cotton as it does not insulate heat. Rayon is a biodegradable fibre
Cotton is a naturally soft material that feels comfortable against the skin. A highly durable and natural fibre of the cotton plant. It is both soft and cool and creates a breathable fabric. It is absorbent, hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and has excellent wicking properties. It is biodegradable.
Linen is made from the fibres of a flax plant. It has a much lower environmental impact than cotton, as it requires no pesticides and little water. It is durable, highly absorbent and breathable. It dries faster than cotton and has the tendency to crinkle. It regulates body temperature, so keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. It is biodegradable.
Rayon blended with linen creates a substantially softer fabric with more fluid drape and a subtle sheen from the rayon. As it wears it gets softer and more textured. It crinkles less than 100% linen. With wash and wear it gets softer and more textured. It is a beautiful, breathable fabric and it’s biodegradable.
A natural, man-made fibre, also referred to as lyocel. It is made from wood pulp from sustainable tree plantations. The production process is based on closed loop spinning that recovers or decomposes all solvents and emissions. It has 50% greater moisture absorbency than cotton. Tencel has been budded as the fabric of the future. It has a luxurious lustre and a drape that mimics silk or rayon. It is biodegradable. It’s an absolute win!
An environmental super fibre. Hemp fabric comes from the plant with the same name. It is one of the fastest growing plants and it doesn't need much water, energy, pesticide, or fertilizers. The plant is very good for soil and can be grown for many years in the same place without exhausting it. It is an extremely high yield crop that produces more fibre per meter than cotton and flax. This is why hemp is considered to be eco-friendly. It has very similar properties to linen, and is the only fibre that wears in, not out! Plus it’s completely biodegradable.
Wool has hollow fibres which help regulate body temperature, keeping you extra toasty in winter. Our wool is locally sourced in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, from The Stuckden Group. They do not condone animal abuse or cruelty towards animals , nor do they source from farms that do not comply to the mohair industry’s sustainable guidelines. Eco-friendly and sustainable, wool is a totally natural product. Entirely renewable and sustainable and it is 100% biodegradable.
