our philosophy centres on high-quality design and construction with a commitment to ethical, sustainable manufacturing. everything we make is created with intention, designed to be purposeful and produced with longevity in mind.
we use exclusive organic cotton jersey - developed by us, made in melbourne, australia. we’ve spent years perfecting it, and have it spun and knitted to our exact specifications. the yarn is global organic textile standard (gots) certified, ensuring it contains a minimum of 95% certified organic fibres. organic cotton has many benefits - it’s biodegradable, produced without pesticides and most (about 80%) of the global crop is rain-fed. it’s also better for the climate according to the soil association, as by building soil fertility, organic farmers help lock in co2. our cotton jersey is pre shrunk and can be thrown straight in the washing machine, making it easy to care for over time and able to be worn again and again.
our japanese suppliers use a mix of organic and better cotton initiative (bci) cotton. bci is a certified sustainable cotton program that supports farmers to minimise pesticide use, better manage water use and soil health, and commit to decent work principles.
our design process always starts with beautiful, ethically sourced fabric and responsibly sourced materials. we love natural fibres, and are inspired by the way they look, feel and perform. as well as sustainability, we consider practicality and wearability in our design - our clothes are designed to make sense in a wardrobe season after season.
we use naturally sustainable linen. derived from the fast-growing flax plant, it thrives without the need for pesticides and has a low water footprint.
bassike denim is handmade in japan the traditional way, by third generation artisan denim makers. it is dyed with natural indigo, and processed in a high-tech system that reduces waste and recycles water. our denim wash house has iso 14001 environmental management certification, and excess indigo is reused as a natural compost for local rose gardens and organic cotton farms.
wool on it’s own is a natural, breathable and renewable fibre with low environmental impact. we ensure our italian suppliers source from non-mulesed animals.
our cashmere is of the highest quality, and is ethically sourced from inner mongolia, where we work with a vertical operation for full transparency. because our suppliers own their own farms, dye labs and garment knitting factory, we can be confident in every step of the process. their supply chain is go green certified.
we work only with the highest quality leathers, and the most reputable european tanneries, which are certified and governed by strict regulation. they use new high-tech purification systems that eliminate 98% of the polluting agents from air emissions. we believe luxury leather pieces like ours are an investment, designed to last in your wardrobe for years.
for our swim collections, we use a high performance italian nylon/lycra blend fabric that is produced using water and energy efficient methods, and is oeko-tex standard 100 certified free from harmful chemicals, among a range of other eco certifications.
