Our materials are sourced from renewable resources carefully selected to offer quality, comfort and longevity. We look  for independent certifications  as Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS),Occguarantee®

and Global Recycled Standard (GRS). We only select components that we can check the true origin of every raw material and  manufacture country avoiding countries that don’t have high environmental safeguard standards in terms of waste and water treatment. We love natural organically grown colors as the dyeing section contributes to 15%-20% of the total waste water flow. 

organic cotton

Our  Global Organic Textile Standard certified  cotton causes less water footprint and less carbon footprint than conventional or other certifications. The cotton has been grown on fields without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or defoliants. We rely on the Global Organic Textile Standard  because it is the only certification that  not only the raw cotton (contains at least 95% ) is certified organic fibers but  also  the fabric has no toxic chemicals. We also use GOTS cotton for the zipper.  See more

organic linen

We have selected the best European linen, certified by Global Organic Textile standards. Organic linen is grown without synthetic fungicides, pesticides and herbicides. Flax is a fiber of proximity and the only plant fiber originating in Europe and needs no irrigation. Our harvested flax is dew-retted so it is exposed to the influence of sun, dew, rain and soil unlike harvested flax crops from Asian countries. Usually asian crops are processed into fiber through a water-retting process. This involves soaking the flax crop in rivers or waterways with chemicals, and results in a high amount of pollutants making their way into the waterways. See more

freshwater free cotton

Our color grown organic cotton fabric is organic, rainfed, and regenerative grown so no artificial irrigation is used (only rainwater) neither chemicals and using biodymamic growing practices. It is OCCGuarantee certificate and  is produced in Brazil with no intermediaries or exploitation. 150 farmers and their families  owns a hectarea within OCC project.  The farmers also grow other organic foodstuffs for sale or self-sufficiency such as millet, beans, peanuts, sesame, palm, castor oil, cucumbers, etc. It is woven and spun in Europe under strict quality controls. Our supplier fully controls the processes of cultivation, spinning and weaving. It does not apply wet processes, only the washing.  Selection between organic or conventional cotton is not a crucial factor in the total environmental impact of a cotton garment. It is not enough to say that it is organic. We need to be sure it is not depleting water resources. See more

fiber tree

We have substituted conventional polyester to plant-based thread.  Our thread is made of  wood by  chipping eucalyptus wood and processed into pulp before being processed into fibers and  it is certified as compastable as home. Lyocell fiber is a man-made cellulosic fiber. The process involves direct dissolution of cellulose pulp in an organic solvent, without any chemical change and recovers more than 99% of the solvent in a closed loop. It requires no irrigation  and  the wood pulp is silviculture grown  in   South Africa from  FSC plantation. See more

palm

We use palm leaves  which are an autochthonous plant from Europe to handcrafted our handbags. Our craftsman Jose goes to select and handpick it from the wild  ravines  in Andalusia  in the spring and summer season. The craftsmanship of the palm has been done for centuries, and it is to be supposed that in the Mediterranean its inhabitants tried to take advantage of the natural resources available.See more.

corozo

Instead of plastic, we wanted to use plant-based material for buttons. Corozo buttons are made from the Tagua palm nut, which grows in the equatorial lowland rainforests of South America. Our corozo is sourced from Ecuador and then it is made into buttons in Spain. This vegetable Ivory has been the preferred material for button production in the past. We are using undyed corozo buttons in 100% of our garments. See more

recycled cotton

We use pre-consumer GRS certified  recycled cotton in the fabric and rope of our backpack spin and woven in Spain.It is cerrThe recycled  fibre does not currently offer the quality of recycled fibres needed to produce a 100% recycled garment from the output. This is due to shortening of the fibres in shredding. It is mixed with organic cotton from South India to provide the quality needed for use in a garment, recycled cotton is usually blended with longer fibres. We should look for mechanical recycling as chemical polymer recycling   research shows that the quality also deteriorates during use, which suggests that at some point the quality will be too low for further application in apparel.
