We select fabrics based on their ability to seamlessly combine visual aesthetics with technical characteristics and exceptional quality.

Tier 2

Fabric Suppliers

Our products are designed and manufactured to ensure they fit and perform to an exceptional standard. We work with material suppliers across the globe to utilize the knowledge and skills built up in regions over many years. We have direct and frequent contact with many of these tier 2 partners, some of which have been working with us since the inception of the company. Our fabric suppliers are in constant dialogue with our manufacturing partners, ensuring complete alignment with the design and manufacture of an item.

We are working hard to ensure we have a full record of our supply chains. To this end, we are actively identifying and documenting every tier 2 partner, ensuring clarity and improving relations. In the future we aim to fully trace our products back to tier 3 level so we can liaise and align with raw material suppliers.
