For the brand is it important to produce in smaller quantities and not to over produce. Working with small artisanal production companies in Italy, Austria and Belgium makes this possible.

Also in production and for samples, deadstock materials are mainly used mixed with high quality fabrics sourced in Europe which are made out of recycled materials like PET bottles.
They also work with cocoon silk which won the Germany sustainability award for their cruel free silk fabrics. Deadstock leather is used for their shoes and handbags, as well as recycled lenses and frame material making up their sunglasses.
