European production on a human scale
‘I’ve chosen to be as responsible as possible in working with European and organic-labelled materials, all without compromising the quality of my products.’
2020 was a year in which I learned to work differently with my partners. the pandemic has taught me to work more digitally while avoiding flying to factories.
Let me present to you my partners,
Who's behind our sweatshirts and T-shirts?
Welcome to Barcelos, northern Portugal.
This workshop is run by Fatima and her team. A woman of great passion, she has always worked within the textile industry, accumulating over 25 years of experience.
She is aided by a team of 25 equally-experienced individuals. Her daughters Isilda and Jennifer oversee operations with the support of Carmo, without whom nothing would be possible.
An engaging and dynamic team, they allow us to develop and produce quality items every day.

Who's behind our sweaters and polo shirts?
Next, we fly to Agliana, Italy.
The factory was established in 1968 as part of a family business.
There we are welcomed here by Federico, his father, and their small team, whose machines are run with the utmost care. The entire collection is made entirely from raw materials purchased in Italy.
Their knowledge and overall quality when it comes to knitwear serve as valuable assets towards meeting our requirements.
It is a company that has managed to preserve the balance between family and development within the textile sector.
Who's behind our jeans?
Finally, we head for Isola del Gran Sasso, Italy.
There, we find ourselves in the family workshop established by Gabriele Colantoni, whose sons Gianluca and Matteo took over in 2000.
It is a company entirely dedicated to denim, with expert know-how, and where accuracy and reliability are essential in responding to their high-end Italian and international customers.
It's a team that works with denim the way I like to myself!
