Reflecting & Renewing Our Promises
With a new year here, we’re reflecting on our past initiatives with you—because transparency is always a top priority on our sustainability journey. Last year we started to ship all orders in 100% recycled poly bags, and we are happy to report that we will continue that practice for every single order in 2023. We also started using organically farmed cotton, which helps reduce energy consumption and conserve water, among other things. Finally, we experimented with natural, renewable fibers like Lyocell (you’ll find it in a lot of our shiny pieces!), linen and bamboo, but held off on sharing these fabrics’ benefits with you until we could confirm they came from 100% sustainable sources. Told you transparency was big for us.
Another Reason to Enjoy Sweater Season
You already know our sweaters are soft but that’s not their only feel-good factor. We make about 80% of our sweaters with made-to-order yarn that’s then used to knit each panel with mathematical precision. Translation: There is no waste in the form of leftover scraps or yarn.
A (re)New Year
What’s new for 2023? We’re hard at work perfecting our first-ever recycled cashmere (!) for fall, and continue to look for additional fibers we can recycle. We’re also getting closer to finding a one-stop shop that supplies organic cotton and blends it on site, thereby eliminating the need for pollution-causing transportation. Our search has taken us to Greece, where we hope to manufacture certain fall 2023 products with a low carbon footprint.
