fibre matrix

fibre matrix

we’ve chosen to employ a fibre matrix tool to better understand the social and environmental impacts of certain fabrics. also, it lets us track our growth towards a more sustainable fibre mix across the business. it’s a considered process that takes time, as we want to be sure there’s never a compromise on quality.

every change we make to our fabrics and yarns goes through rigorous testing to ensure that the change is for the better.

over the past 12 months, our fabrics have improved by 34%. we look forward to seeing what improvements next year brings.
