OUR VIEW

  • We strive to a circular economy, one that benefits all the actors in the circle, we believe this happens through supporting our cultural heritage, a textile tradition that has last more than 5000 years, but because of globalization and fast fashion, this original cultures were condemned to disappear; 5000 years of tradition that comes not only with amazing knitting techniques, but with outstanding artists and farming practices. Promoting restorative farming practices; With products that are made to last, we are contributing to the growth of clean economies and taking responsibility.
