Will it shrink?
We spend the extra time and added cost to ensure what goes in to your washing machine, comes out like the original so we pre shrink every single piece. We wash test a swatch of every single fabrication we own, measure the shrink rate and overcompenste the pattern using that number. Then we wash and dry before packing for the bulk delivery.
Why should I love this garment?
Designing and developing apparel which are meant for long life cycles is a science. The culmination of many factors are forced to come together to achieve sublte perfection, like a well blanced recipe. This incluedes understanding the soil from which the fiber was grown, to the yarn spinning technique, the knitting machines, types of dyes used and of course the craftsmanship of the sewers and head of operations overseeing the process. Many times, one or more of these elements are overlooked but we take pride in each one, delivering a product you can easily fall in love with across a large chunk of ones lifetime. This in turn, is the commitment we make towards sustainability.

No, this is the normal retail price all customers pay for our products.

WHAT DO WE STAND FOR?
Long Product Life Cycles
We create finished garments designed for long life cycles and use significantly less water and toxic chemicals in the process. By using better quality yarn and milling techniques to create higher end fabrictions plus exceptional sewing practices and a pre shrinking methodology, we deliver products designed to stay in your closet for a long time. Therefore avoiding a landfill and reducing unnecessry textile waste.
Obsessively Vetted Supply Chains
Becuase in the end, a brand is only as good as its factories and suppliers. We work exclusively with fabric mills, sewing facilities, dye houses and printers in Northern Portugal who have a track record of exceptional craft and labor practices. We also partner closely with organic cotton farm cooperatives and rely less on slapping a certification on our garments and calling it a day. The devil is in the details and we obsess over them.
Take Back Program - Any Condition / No Questions Asked
The ‘Cycle of Existence’ label is our pledge to take full responsibility for every single garment we produce. On behalf of all the brands we work alongside, we will always send a free return label for any piece that carries this tag and most times pay in store credit to get it back. Any condition, no questions asked.
