For our collections we use only natural fibres, as we believe this is the base for a sustainable textile product and therefore a sustainable textile market. We have the opinion that the amount of petrol based fibres has to be decreased, to avoid the negative impacts oil drilling and plastic materials have for the environment and finally for humanity as well. All of our production takes place in the EU in Portugal to offer our customers a safe and clear product that has been produced according to the ethical standards and safety standards of the European Union. Our favoured materials are –
