Organic cotton yarn
May 25th, 2018
"Pima" and "Tanguis" are among the noblest varieties of cotton and are renowned for their long, breathable and resistant fibers. They are mainly grown in Peru, a country renowned for the quality of its cotton production. Indeed, the textile tradition of Peru is said to date back from the pre-Inca period.
In order to make our summer sweaters, we have selected an organic "Tanguis" cotton yarn from Peru. It is undyed, and thus its fibers preserve their finesse, their softness as well as their natural off white shade. This yarn is GOTS certified, Global Organic Textile Standard, which enables us to guarantee that all stages of fiber processing comply with environmental and social criteria according to the Ecocert label. Our summer sweaters have been carefully knitted in France by SJ LA Manufacture, in Saint James, Normandy. Their fit is comfortable and relaxed. They are perfectly suited for the changing weather of spring and summer days, and chilly evenings.
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 →
