Wool Jacket blackRegular price SFr. 480.00
01/1 – a woolen jacket with a wider fit. The slightly masculine shape adds a banded-meets-lapel collar and fold up sleeves. We would label it "basic chic with a little twist". The colour of the buttons impacts the style you go for, whether it is simple and classic or rather contrasty. Model is a German size 36 and wears our size XS/S.
100% Organic certified pure wool. Raw material source is from contracted farmers in Australia, South Africa, and Europe. It was spun, woven and finished, including the dyeing, in Europe. The lining is made from Recycled Polyester made in Germany by Frankenberger. The buttons (100% vegan) are made in Germany by Augsburger Knopffabrik.
Transparency is essential to us, and therefore we are quite clear about the costs of each item. From designing the samples with our master tailor to pattern making, the cost of the fabric as well as the cost of the hardware (e.g. button, linings, threads), the manufacturing costs to marketing costs (including the photographer, model, location, hair, and make-up artist, travel expenses and advertising costs for working with influencers and other advertisers). We enlisted all incurred costs involved during the process from our idea to the final product. In case you have any questions, please feel free to contact us; we're happy to get in touch with you if there is a need for further clarification.
