We strive to use only the best and most sustainable materials out there. Below you can find a list of materials we regularly use, graded with A (best), B (good) and C (to improve). Grade D shows a list of materials we don't use. Please keep in mind that this list grades using a sustainability standard, not a quality or longevity standard.

Grade A

TENCEL™ Lyocell

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers originate from FSC® and PEFC™ certified wood, a natural, raw and renewable resource. The material is produced using a unique closed loop system, which means waste and water are recycled to more than 99%. We source our fabric from Lenzing, an Austrian company known for its circular business model as well as its focus on high resource efficiency and low ecological impact.

Recycled Cotton

Recycled cotton prevents textile waste and requires far fewer resources than conventional or organic cotton. Most of our recycled cotton is made from production waste and is recycled directly by our clothing manufacturer in Portugal.

Grade B

Organic Cotton

The production oforganic cottonreleases fewer greenhouse gases and uses significantly less water and energy than conventional cotton. The methods used to produce this material ensure that no artificial fertilizers and pesticides need to be used, and soil quality is improved. We only use certified organic cotton that meets all ecological guidelines and criteria for social responsibility.

Organic Linen

Woven from the fibers of the flax plant, organic linen is a natural and renewable material that is known for its durability, strength and breathability. Flax is one of the most sustainable raw materials in the world, as the plant receives no additional irrigation during growth; rainwater is sufficient. We source certified organic linen that is farmed and processed without the use of toxic substances such as pesticides and insecticides.

Belgian Linen™

Belgian Linen™ is renowned for its quality, traceability and authenticity around the globe. Woven from the fibers of the flax plant, linen is a natural and degradable material that is known for its durability, strength and breathability. We source our Belgian linen from a certified carbon-neutral manufacturer that focuses on a zero waste policy – all parts of the flax plant are used while waste selvedge and shearing dust are recycled into insulation materials or paper.

Recycled Cashmere

Recycled cashmere offers the same soft, insulating qualities as virgin cashmere but with a much lower environmental impact. This material is sourced from an Italian manufacturer that follows strict ethical and ecological standards.

Recycled Wool

Recycled wool offers the same qualities as virgin wool at a fraction of the environmental cost. Producing non-organic virgin wool can be resource-intensive as it requires vast amounts of land, water, chemicals and dyes. We use recycled wool in our products to extend the life of wool that has already been produced. This wool is recycled in Germany and originates from production waste.


Raffia is a natural, biodegradable and renewable material, which is harvested from the leaves of the raffia palm tree. The raffia palm trees require no pesticides or herbicides to grow and are harvested in a sustainable manner, allowing the branches and leaves to regrow. To create our bags, we source raffia from local farmers in Marrakesh and work with a women's cooperative, which supports young mothers.

Grade C

ECONYL® Regenerated Nylon

ECONYL® regenerated Nylon uses synthetic waste such as industrial plastic, waste fabric, and fishing nets from oceans, then recycles and regenerates them into a new nylon yarn. This yarn is exactly the same quality as virgin nylon but uses less water during the production process. Compared to similar materials, our ECONYL® regenerated Nylon is twice as resistant to chlorine and sun creams/oils. It also offers UV protection and muscular comfort, while being breathable and pilling resistant.

Organic Wool

Organic wool is a natural, renewable, biodegradable and durable fiber that originates from farms that put animals and the environment first. We only use organic wool from certified organic animal husbandry. This guarantees that the wool we buy is mulesing-free and that the sheep don't graze land that is treated with toxic chemicals.

Conventional Cotton

We never use conventional, non-organic cotton as a main material. However, sometimes - due to lack of sustainable options - we have to use trims made of this fiber. With every production and restock, we do our best to source more sustainable options, such as organic cotton.

Grade D

  • Conventional silk
  • Conventional wool
  • Conventional viscose
  • Polyester (unless certified recycled)
  • Cupro
