Our Materials

We use two different types of materials, each paired with a different method of Silver treatment.

Merino Wool Texture

Merino Wool

Origins of Merino

Grown by the Merino sheep, this blend of wool is prized for its naturally soft texture and to this day it is highly regarded as one of the finest wools in existence.

Originally from southwest Spain around nine centuries ago, the Merino sheep were a rarity across the globe until free trade bought them far out to the other corner of the world, New Zealand.

What Does It Do?

Merino wool is a fantastic insulator, with its amazingly adaptable structure, it swiftly wicks away moisture and works just as good wet as it does dry.

Evolved to live in rural and semi-arid climates, these sheep have adapted and so has their wool. It'll keep any garment at the perfect temperature, warming and cooling to make it just right.

With a super breathable, naturally anti-itch surface, any moisture rises up and out of the wool so sweat is a thing of the past. It can hold around a third of its weight in liquid before feeling wet.

It's these incredibly unique attributes that led to its wildly popular use in ultra-premium and high end clothing, serving as a cornerstone to luxury clothing.

Sustainable Farming

We only source our wool from sustainable, respected and above all accredited farms in New Zealand. It's our utmost responsibility to ensure every weave we use is farmed sustainably and safely. After shearing, we ensure our sheep are left with plenty of wool to keep them warm.

Merino Wool Treatment

Silver Ions

How it works

The naturally antibacterial properties of the Merino are supplemented with the addition of pure Silver ions.

When any part of the Silver touches a bacterial cell, it breaks down its cell wall until the bacteria is no longer able to function, effectively rendering it inactive and unable to produce the pungent smell that comes when it feeds on your sweat unhindered.

Method of Application

When the raw Merino fibers arrive, each and every part is treated with pure Silver ions from end to end prior to the manufacture of the garment. This ensures that every single Merino fiber has its own Silver and the resulting garment is perfectly and evenly antibacterial.

Cotton Bolls

Twill Cotton

Origins of Cotton

Grown from a soft, fluffy boll that's cultivated all over the world - that's even made it to the far side of the moon - cotton is by far one of the oldest and most widespread materials around.

Usually planted in the spring, it is a perennial that lives on year after year and keeps growing. With evidence of use in the old world before 5000 BC, it sits firmly near the top of the most resilient fabrics around.

What Does It Do?

Cotton is super lightweight and durable and as a result, is one of the best base materials there is. The soft-to-the-touch quality ensures comfort and cosiness with every wear.

With its roots in the neolithic period, cotton is a reliable, weather-proof insulator that's perfect at any moment and for every occasion.

The comfortable yet flexible stretch makes cotton the perfect fabric to use in all garments, along with its hypoallergenic properties that make it a flawless favourite.

With the prominently high tensile strength of the twill weave, it's able to withstand multiple washes without a problem.

Sustainable Farming

We only source our cotton from organic crops which haven't been adulterated by genetic modification. This gives an experience as similar to the original cotton that we strive to implement. By cutting out the use of pesticides and other chemicals, we can ensure all our garments are held to a higher standard and free from allergens.

Twill Cotton Treatment

Silver Fiber

How it works

The Cotton is intertwined with threads of our patented Silver fibers that weave in and out to ensure full coverage.

When any part of the Silver touches a bacterial cell, it breaks down its cell wall until the bacteria is no longer able to function, effectively rendering it inactive and unable to produce the pungent smell that comes when it feeds on your sweat unhindered.

Method of Application

Our patented Silver fibers are made from a specialist design allowing them to be woven directly into the fabric. During manufacture, the Cotton fibers are intertwined with our patented Silver fibers to ensure each and every surface is covered.
