When deciding what to wear, we have a moral obligation to consider how it’s made and its impact on the environment.
The outside of our blazers are made using deadstock fabric. What is deadstock. Great question! Deadstock fabric is upcycled fabric that is left behind from larger fashion houses, doomed for a warehouse, or worse a landfill, never to be scene again. We rescued these beautiful textiles and give them new life.
In some cases we use deadstock silk fabrics for liners. In other cases we use a cupro-cotton blend. What is cupro? Cupro is the by-product of the industrial harvest of cotton, specifically the waste fibers that are too small to spin. It is biodegradable as well as easily recycled, since it’s made from 100% plant-based materials. It's also hypoallergenic, breathable, anti-static, and stretch-resistant. So it's pretty much the best alternative to silk.
All of our buttons are make of recycled materials - either recycled paper or recycled polyester.
