Organic cotton fleece
December 20th, 2018
Fleece is commonly used to name fabrics that look like the natural wool of sheep. It is an insulating fabric that is knitted then brushed, which releases its fibers and creates a higher surface from the base of the fabric, making it soft and plush, and trapping heat.
Although it is usually made of polyester or polyamide - which are both plastic fibers derived from petrol - we have carefully selected this organic cotton fleece to make a selection of unusually soft sweaters, that will patinate with time and washes. They were made by atelier Bonneterie Le Minor, in Morbihan, France.
The Ampo Provençal print is developed by Les Olivades, a family-owned textile printing company located in the area of Avignon. The atelier, created in 1818, continues to perpetuate the traditional know-how of textile printing in the south of France. The rich history of the printing works, is marked by the acquisition of the company by the current president's grandfather in the post-World War II period.Read →
