Our materials

FROM RAW MATERIAL GROWING TO DISPOSAL –
WE CREATE TRANSPARENCY

We only use renewable, recycled and / or biodegradable raw materials and ensure that the ecological footprint from cultivation to the end of the product’s life is kept as low as possible.

SWISS WOOL

The main players in our wool supply chain are the Swiss sheep, more precisely the white alpine sheep. This high-quality wool is only sheared once a year in order to obtain long enough fibers for the production of our Muntagnard Swiss LANA fabric. The shorn wool is collected from farmers throughout Switzerland by our partner wollseinand brought to Huttwil, where it is sorted and then transported to a laundry, where the wool is washed according to GOTS standards.

RECYCLED MERINO WOOL

The latest addition to our range of materials is recycled merino wool. Merino wool is a particularly high quality form of wool. It is obtained from merino sheep and is characterized by its particular delicacy and softness. The super soft material is breathable, temperature regulating and very easy to care for. Unfortunately, from an ecological point of view, wool should be consumed with caution. Because the keeping of sheep and the processing of conventional merino wool as a raw material has a significant impact on the environment. We have therefore decided to only use recycled merino wool. Together with our partners in northern Italy, we were able to develop an extremely high-quality and environmentally friendly fabric with this ambition, which is now used in our latest jacket models.

SWISS DEER LEATHER

Well over 10,000 wild red deer are hunted in Switzerland every year. The opinions and perspectives regarding the necessity of hunting in Switzerland are controversial. Regardless of the correct or incorrect answer, until recently a large proportion of the red deer skins that were produced were disposed of and burned. The remaining hides simply weren’t used and thousands of these beautiful deer hides were discarded as waste. Since 2017 a small group of entrepreneurs has from Cervo Volante started collecting some of these deer hides from hunters and local butchers in Switzerland in order to refine this valuable raw material into high-quality and sustainable leather. The production process takes place entirely in Switzerland – from vegetable tanning to cutting and laser engraving of the pieces of leather.

WOOD BASED FIBERS

The lining of our LANA jacket is made from European beech wood and the entire LEGNA t-shirt is also made from 100% wood-based fibers. The raw materials are processed into a fiber in Austria and then made into a silky-soft fabric in Italy (LANA jacket) and Portugal (LEGNA T-shirt). In dyeing and finishing, our fabrics are processed according to GOTS / Bluesign standards. The transport routes are optimized for the shortest possible routes and even our sewing threads are made from biodegradable wood-based fibers (cradle-to-cradle certified).

TRACEABLE & RECYCLED COTTON

Cotton often has a bad reputation for environmental and social impact. It was therefore clear to us that we couldn’t just look the other way and focus on alternative materials for our products. With the ambition to find innovative solutions to find new and more sustainable ways in the production and use of cotton, we set out on a search. The result: a fully traceable yarn made from long-staple cotton from Europe and fabrics made from 100% recycled cotton from production residues.

Our European cotton is a new generation of cotton that not only uses significantly fewer resources in production, but also points the way to a more sustainable and future-oriented way of growing and processing cotton for textiles – the highest quality, sustainable and traceable raw materials.

SYNTHETIC FIBERS

If we use synthetics, then only future-oriented solutions that are biodegradable and recyclable. But what does, for example, biodegradability mean? The unique composition of our materials enables bacteria to access the waste materials and digest them, which accelerates the biological degradation process. The synthetic material is eliminated from the planet in about 5 years, while other fibers take decades to centuries to decompose. Our material breaks down into organic material (biomass) and biogas; both can then be used again as a new environmental resource.
