The Material. Cupro has that silky feeling and the company, which produces the fibers gained high recognition for environmental and chemical safety practices in their traceable production system. Tencel™ Lyocell is a very conscious fabric, we love it because it is less toxic than Viscose. Besides, Tencel™ Lyocell is sustainable due it its botanic origin and production process. Head over to the home of Tencel, if you're interested in the sustainability details.
Transparency is essential to us, and therefore we are quite clear about the costs of each item. From designing the samples with our master tailor to pattern making, the cost of the fabric as well as the cost of the hardware (e.g. button, linings, threads), the manufacturing costs to marketing costs (including the photographer, model, location, hair, and make-up artist, travel expenses and advertising costs for working with influencers and other advertisers). We enlisted all incurred costs involved during the process from our idea to the final product.
