A crucial aspect of our business model is a commitment to sustainability, which we define as environmental and social responsibility aimed at minimizing the negative externalities of our production and promote the well-being of the people involved in our supply chain.

We are taking serious action to ensure that our environmental and social footprint is reduced to a minimum:


  • We have opted for a distribution model focused on micro productions and made to order to ensure that we produce exclusively what is needed and exactly as needed by the final customer, without unnecessary guesses and wasteful use of resources.  
  • We focus on creating a supply chain as short and local as possible. Following an effort to consolidate our supply chain, we now work with only 8 producers and 10 suppliers located in Italy; with a majority of them being located within 50km of our home base in Como. Having a local supply chain plays an essential role in reducing our overall carbon and transport footprint by limiting the distance traveled by our goods between each step of production.
  • We value the use of artisanal production techniques as a way of reducing our energy consumption throughout manufacturing. Our products are handmade to the highest degree possible, making sure that the main source of energy used in our production comes from the hands of our artisans instead of non-renewable sources.
  • We are committed to create hard-wearing clothing and accessories that are always contemporary, independent of the current fashion trends. In order to counteract the constant push for over-consumption and disposable fashion, we don't do seasonal collections and feature instead a core selection of timeless designs made to last.


  • We use natural fibers to craft all our garments and accessories, making sure that they are responsibly sourced. We use exclusively organic cotton certified by GOTS which is grown from non-genetically modified seeds and without the use of fertilizers and pesticides. We also selected our wool supplier carefully, ensuring that the sheep-raising techniques used at source are up to the highest standards of animal welfare.
  • We directly source all our fabrics and yarns from deadstock and stock service programs by local suppliers known around the world for their quality and ethical practices. This allows us to re purpose some of these beautiful fabrics that mills and other brands have created in excess and significantly reduce our demand for new materials and resources. Normally, these fabrics would be in too limited of an amount to be used in a normal production but since we don't do normal productions, we are happy to use these fabrics to make just a handful of pieces until we run out.   
  • We ensure that no hazardous chemicals are used in the dyeing and treatment of our yarn, as well as in the printing of our fabrics. All the materials used in our production have also been successfully tested for harmful substances to human health according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
  • We print all our fabric with an Inkjet system which relies on water based ink. This solution, which uses the same technology as home printers, ensures that limited amount of dye is wasted and dispersed during the printing process.

Green Solutions

  • We invest in green building infrastructure. We recently installed solar panels on the entire roof of our own workshop, which is now powered with renewable energy coming from these solar panels.
  • We use sustainable solutions for our packaging and retail. Our packaging boxes are made of 100% recycled cardboard, while the sleeves that we use to store our products are made of 50% recycled plastic. We also looked around for sustainable solutions to furnish our London boutique and started a collaboration with an innovative Italian company, Nardi Mobili. The entire furniture is now made of recycled cardboard, giving our boutique that unique look that we love so much.


  • We invite our customers to try to reduce the number of times that our clothing and accessories are washed and instead opt for airing out used garments, brushing the cloth and spot clean any small stain. Since the majority of water consumption takes place during the use phase of a garment, relying on these alternatives instead of washing is a great way to minimize water use throughout the whole life-cycle of our products.
  • We are committed to waste reduction and recycling throughout our supply chain. We favor processes intended to reduce offcuts and, consequently, the overall waste generated during our manufacturing process. We also found ways to ‘upcycle’ our leftovers: small leather cuts are used to create the leather details in our braces while left-over fabric is converted into travel bags which are currently sold exclusively in our shop (we even create patchworks if the cuts are too small!).

Social Responsibility

  • We closely monitor our suppliers’ social conduct, focusing on ethical treatment of employees and promotion of safe and healthy working environments where workers are paid a living wage.
  • We promote fair workplace practices and we value initiatives that are aimed at improving the economic status of women and other underrepresented groups. Today, 75% of the artisans working in our family owned factory are women.
  • We seek to source the raw materials used in our production from responsible farms that comply with our social standards. Where possible, we also try to go one step further by promoting community support and improvement of infrastructure at source, such as in the case of our organic cotton.
