Production process: the numbers
The sweater is made entirely from old cashmere garments.
A careful selection of old apparels ensures a perfect color: there is no dyeing, each piece is unique.
Thanks to this creative process we are able to save many natural resources. In particular, this method allows us to upcycle the leftovers and reduce the amount of water and chemical products used in the production!
The yarn we use is Global Recycling Standard certified.
This is the most important certification in the recycle universe because it attests its origin, its processing and the impact of its production.
Cashmere is one of the finest fibers that exist: its raw material’s price is among the most expensive in the world.
We have never seen a cashmere sweater made with two plyes that costs less than 130 euro.
We really wanted to make this exceptional material accessible to anyone and sustainable. Thanks to a distribution with no middlemen these sweaters cost 99 euro.

Cashmere is one of the longest fibers that exist, this is why it is less subject to peeling.
Anyway we suggest you to wash it only when it is necessary, better with handwashing rather than in the washing machine.
To avoid smells, as cashmere wool naturally absorbs humidity, we suggest you to handwash it or to choose a “delicate” program with a specific soap for wool.
We advise against fabric softner because it limits the natural capacity of wool to be transpirant and to absorb sweat.
We highly forbid you to use bleach on your cashmere garments, because you would literally destroy the threads of the product!
