RECYCLED POLYESTER & POLYESTER
Polyester has strong fibres giving a long-lasting garment. It’s more resistant to shrinking and wrinkles and is quick drying. Dyes quickly and produces striking colours. We love recycled polyester because it reclaims plastic waste.
Made by spinning from Sheep wool.
Wool is wrinkle-resistant, springs back quickly after stretching & repels moisture. It’s also recyclable. It keeps you at a comfortable temperature through all seasons & feels nice to wear. It’s anti-static and is biodegradable.
Made from the stems of the flax plant.
Linen is 2-3 times stronger than Cotton & is anti-cling & anti-static. It billows away from the body to dry out any moisture. Very breathable & cool to wear. Considered to be one of the strongest of all-natural fibres.
RAYON & VISCOSE
Made using wood pulp, this natural raw material is turned into fibre using a chemical process.
Rayon & viscose drape beautifully & are breathable. They are soft with a silk-like feel & dye easily to produce beautiful, vivid colours.
Raw cotton is spun into thread & then woven to make fabric.
Cotton is natural and breathable. It is hypoallergenic, soft and comfortable to wear and is biodegradable.
Merino wool is a natural fibre grown year-round by Merino sheep.
It keeps you at a comfortable temperature through all seasons & feels nice to wear. It’s anti-static and is biodegradable. We use a combination of ZQ and RWS certified 100% merino. Both of these certifications ensure ethical and sustainable practices. Take a look at ZQ here

. We were also lucky enough to get some of the last merino fabrics knitted right here in NZ, which is being used in a range of garments.
