Yes! As we make most products ourselves, we are able to ensure every garment is crafted sustainably, using natural fibres. Because all our fibres are created by nature rather than in a petrochemical laboratory, every product is naturally renewable, recyclable and biodegradable.
We ensure every supplier we work with uses sustainable practices for their raw materials and where possible we source from New Zealand companies to support our local textile industry.

Yes! We only use factories we would be happy for our customers to visit - factories where the workers fairly paid, offered training and up-skilling opportunities - our goal is to help grow, develop and maintain a local, sustainable knitwear industry.

Anything that is New Zealand made, we have created ourselves in our knitwear mill on Waiheke Island.
