Who made this garment
With almost no linen weavers left in Portugal, we were so lucky to find this special one. The owner, Oscar, always teaches us something new and is always eager to learn different things.
They started in the 60s, with an innovative technology: buttons from polyester resin. Now, they kindly offer ecological biodegradable buttons, made from natural components, such as cotton, recycled paper, vegetables, fruit, wood, etc.)
All our zippers are produced in Portugal, made in 100% recycled plastic.
Our garments are dyed at this facility with GOTS certification, ensuring the water ph is balanced and all the harmful chemicals are gone.
Our woven garment partner is a small, family-owned factory, where the workforce is 100% made of women. Visiting them is always a big pleasure, and the icing on the cake is to meet up with Cristina, the extraordinary multi-tasked woman that manages everything.
More about the material
Linen comes from Flax trees, which can grow in poor land that is not used for food production - in some cases, it can even rehabilitate polluted soil.
Rainwater is the most used way to cultivate flax, as it needs 60% less water than conventional cotton. That saves 307 litres of water per kilo of fibre on its production, compared to cotton (yes, a bit shocking).
