Our objective is to conceive the best sustainable garment and our tags exemplify it well. It starts with the fact that all our garments our produced in small batches and limited edition as a way to cut overproduction. Thus all our garments are numbered in the inside care label. We pay a lot of attention only collaborating with nearby atelier with a proven record of ethic and craftsmanship. Our goal is always to build long-lasting partnerships and felt that writing down the name of the person who finished our garment was a way of saying thank you. The date of production is production is also written on the label, a sort of date of birth that goes along two empty spaces: the first and second owners initials and date of respective ownership. Two important milestones in the life of the garments, a signs to show that our products are designed to stay with you for years before being given, or sold.

Every piece is unique
The painter jacket is an iconic and timeless piece. It was first worn by workers and railwaymen and since 1968, students and other classes of the society have seized the trend. In the 19th century, the outfit consisted of a simple blouse and a belt. It then evolves towards overalls since it was viewed as more practical and protective. Eventually, the painter jacket evolved into a new form: a two-piece work suit with work blue jacket and trousers.
Working with the best partner
Texmin is a factory based in Portugal near Porto. It’s been more than 30 years they are partnering with top brands including levis, a-cold-wall or Maison Kitsuné. Texmin was the first factory we met when we were visiting Portugal for the first time and the only that trusted in our project. We are everyday in contact with Raquel, whose in charge of us for more than two years, and Francisco, the owner of Texmin. With Francisco, we share the want of keeping things small and qualitative, being obsessed by details. That’s why he keeps his number of employees below twenty, that he keeps investing in new machinery or new facilities as to offer top level working conditions to his employees. Being the best always has been the goal of Francisco and Texmin, and we are thankful to have them on our side.
