We strive to utilize recycled materials in production. The wadding of our quilted jackets is made of recycled polyester, which means its made of PET plastic bottles. The cotton we use in our socks is a blend of recycled cotton and polyester. From fabric cutting waste, we make loose collars and scrunchies. All one-color knitwear is always produced from factories' deadstock yarns.
We test all the materials ourselves by doing wash and wear tests on them so that we can find out the shrinkage of materials, colorfastness for washing, pilling resistance, and tear strengths. We want to use only high-quality materials in production so that the life cycle of the products is as long as possible in terms of materials. We are also very interested in new ecological materials, but we have not yet found solutions that fit our production. We are looking for new partners who would be able to process and produce new cellulose or bio-based fiber fabrics for our needs.

We provide customers with care and washing instructions for knitwear and jackets in the store. We repair any seams in our knitwear, meaning that we offer a guarantee that the seams will last for two years in normal use. If necessary, we can also get new ones to replace the dropped buttons and snaps, and we will direct the customer to the seamstress if they want changes or other repairs to the garment.
Emissions related to the maintenance and washing of textiles are also under investigation. Natural fibers survive with very little washing and it is not recommended to wash woolen coats at home at all. Maintenance is best done by ventilating and brushing. More about product care
We want to minimize material waste primarily with mechanical formula layout, which is an efficient and functional formula layout. If this is not possible, we produce various accessories from fringe fabrics, for example scrunchies or loose collars.
Producing products locally in Tuusula, Tampere, and the Baltic countries ensures product safety due to legislation. The fabrics come from within Europe, so EU regulations and laws also oblige their manufacturing process and factory working conditions.
