NATURAL FIBRES AND MATERIALS
NATURAL FIBRES FOR OUR 1ST
MOHERINO BLEND COLLECTION
El Robledal de la Santa Moherino Blend is a yarn made from 100% Spanish natural fibres. It is composed of black and white Spanish Mohair and Merino (Moherino). The Mohair comes from the herd of Angora goats bred and raised at El Robledal de la Santa farm in Cáceres province, in the region of Extremadura. The Merino wool comes from a sheep farm in La Huertona, in the region of León.
In both cases, the animals live in totally natural conditions, in areas of vital importance for encouraging biodiversity. The herds are raised in keeping with extensive farming systems, applying methods that prioritize the health and well-being of the animals and the flourishing of the landscapes they inhabit . All the processes involved, from the breeding and feeding of the animals to the shearing and processing of their wool, are carried out with the very highest care and respect. The production of the yarn takes place in the province of Cuenca in central Spain, in collaboration with Wooldreamers. Moherino Blend is in fact the result of cooperation between a group of young people dedicated to the recovery and revitalization of a Spanish cultural heritage
Our Tote Bags
Made from cotton, a fibre of plant origin whose properties make it particularly strong and suitable for reuse. It is sensitive to the action of micro-organisms, so that its natural degradation takes place within the space of a few months. The use of 100% natural fibres in the production process encourages the introduction of more sustainable practices from the start of the cycle right through to the recovery of the relevant waste products. The cotton used for our Tote Bags is certified by AITEX, which means that it has been tested for the presence of over 300 harmful substances, which are all totally absent, thus complying with the production standards apt for sale for human use.
The vital role played by our suppliers
We work with creative people who share the same philosophy as our company. We bring our end customers closer to the process of production of our garments by delivering small “pills” of vital information. We want our customers to learn as much as possible about how each garment is made, thus acquiring a closer view of our processes.
The start of each collection derives from a process of research into the fibre to be used, taking into account its social and environmental impact. In order to carry this out, we work in close cooperation with our designers and conceive together the basic outlines of each collection We also think about the production process, working with our suppliers and manufacturers using exclusively sustainable processes involving local production and recycling. The totality of these processes will be made known to our end customers. We are in direct contact with all the people who participate in the production of our garments, from the small wool producer through to the designer and the people responsible for knitting the finished garments.
A fair price to ensure the right balance is found in the market
When determining the cost of each garment, there are several aspects to consider: the quality and availability of natural materials, the design, the handcrafted elaboration of the garment, the sampling and quality control processes, sustainable packaging, soaps for washing, which must comply with European regulations of low environmental impact. In this way, the final price is determined by the totality of the prices of the various processes that combine to produce the final garment.
CONSERVING THE ENVIRONMENT
IN THE CONDITION IN WHICH WE FIND IT
It is becoming increasingly obvious that there is an urgent need for society to work with companies like Knit in web that are committed to the protection of the environment. Our mission is to conserve the environment in which we operate in a better condition than when we found it: this is our leitmotiv. Change must come from our own environment as more and more people rally to the cause of sustainable products and services. We work with small farmers with whom we share the ideals of sustainability, the circular economy and total transparency.
