Sustainable attributes:

Made in Europe
Products with this certification are solely Made in Europe. The total distance travelled as a garment is greatly reduced compared to production in countries further away. This minimises the carbon footprint to minimise our impact on the planet
Low Water Use
Water is a precious natural resource. We use tools provided by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition to work out how much water is consumed by each of our garments throughout its journey in the supply chain. The Low Water Use credential is granted to products which consume fewer than 10 cubic metres of water per kg of fabric produced.
By-product
All the leathers we use in our collections are by-products. No animal is killed for our leather
Natural fibres
Natural fibres are materials made from naturally occurring substances produced by plants and animals and they are biodegradable
Ethically made
Garments that are ethically made have come from factories that have signed our code of conduct ensuring the highest ethical standards are met. These include living wages, safe conditions, regulated working hours and strictly no child labour

Our Shearling garments are handmade in Portugal using a luxuriously soft material that’s insulating, strong and biodegradable. This natural material is a by-product sourced from Portuguese farms, coming to us with certificates of origin for full treaceability. Used for warmth and comfort for millennia, Shearling continues being loved as a good investment and has timeless appeal.

This is a perfect piece to welcome the cold with!
