Fabric Partners

We select fabrics based on their ability to combine visual aesthetics with technical characteristics and exceptional quality.

Fabric Suppliers

We design and manufacture our products to ensure they fit and perform to the highest standard. We work with material suppliers across the globe to utilize the knowledge and skills built up in regions over many years. We have direct and frequent contact with many of these fabric partners (Tier 2), some of which have been working with us since the inception of the company.

Our fabric suppliers are in constant dialogue with our manufacturing partners, ensuring complete alignment with the design and manufacture of an item. You can read more about our manufacturing partners (Tier 1) here. We are working hard to develop a complete record of our supply chains. To this end, we are actively identifying and documenting every Tier 2 partner, ensuring clarity and improving relations.

Materials

In the future, we aim to fully trace our products back to their raw material extraction and processing (Tier 3) level so we can liaise and align with raw material suppliers. You can read more about the materials we use here.

Certifications

Many of our Tier 1 and Tier 2 partners have received certifications, ensuring their standards and values align with our own. You can learn about some of the certifications used by our Tier 1 and Tier 2 partners here.
