Harnessing the Power of Nature

Harnessing the Power of Nature

With a rising global awareness around environmental sustainability, the fashion industry is undergoing a much-needed transformation. As a Cape Town-based brand, we have deeply embraced this change, pioneering the way with our eco-friendly materials - hemp linen, cork leather, and recycled felt.


The Intersection of Sustainability and Fashion

As we experience the tangible impacts of climate change, making conscious, sustainable choices has never been more critical. The fashion industry, a known contributor to environmental damage, has an opportunity—and an obligation—to adapt. That's where our brand steps in, merging trendy styles with responsible sourcing and production.


Meet the Materials: Hemp Linen, Cork Leather, and Recycled Felt

Our choice of materials forms the heart of our sustainability mission. Let's dive into the details of what makes each material an environmentally sound choice.

Hemp Linen: This robust fabric offers myriad advantages over traditional alternatives. Hemp grows densely, reducing land use, and requires no pesticides or herbicides. Moreover, it requires significantly less water than cotton. The resulting fabric is breathable, durable, and becomes softer with each wash, all while keeping our carbon footprint minimal.

Cork Leather: Harvested from the bark of cork oak trees, this material provides a vegan, eco-friendly alternative to conventional leather. The harvesting process leaves the tree unharmed, allowing it to regrow its bark and continue absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere. Cork leather is not only durable and waterproof but also brings a unique aesthetic to our designs.

Recycled Felt: We believe in giving materials a second life. Our recycled felt is born from repurposed textile waste, helping us combat the growing waste problem. Not only does it provide excellent insulating properties, but it also allows us to create stunning, textured designs.


Local Production in Cape Town

Producing locally in Cape Town does more than just cut down on our carbon footprint. It boosts our local economy, creates jobs, and strengthens our community. Our brand takes pride in nurturing these community connections and contributing positively to our hometown's development.


Style Meets Sustainability

But sustainable fashion isn’t just about the materials—it’s about the end product. Our brand ensures that you don't have to compromise between style and sustainability. We blend modern design with the unique textures and aesthetics of our materials, proving that eco-friendly fashion can also be chic, comfortable, and highly wearable.


The Future of Sustainable Fashion

Sustainable fashion is not just a passing trend—it's the future. As we continue to grow, we are dedicated to exploring new environmentally friendly materials, further refining our production process, and pioneering fresh designs. We invite you to join us on this journey, as we innovate, adapt, and shape the future of fashion, one garment at a time.

"Every piece of clothing you purchase from us represents a vote for a sustainable future. We invite you to browse our collections, experience the quality and comfort of our eco-friendly materials, and join us in transforming the fashion industry.
