Why is this piece better than buying new?
Our cashmere collections are secondhand and we use artisanal handcraft to restore them back to their former glory. By choosing to shop secondhand, not only are you helping to divert hundreds of thousands of tonnes of textile waste from UK landfills, recycling and incineration, you’re supporting the revival of traditional mending techniques, while reducing your wardrobe’s dependence on natural resources.
As we stock multiple brands, we always recommend measuring yourself prior to buying from us. Every item lists its chest measurement, however if you require further measurements, please don't hesitate to get contact us here.
All our collections should be washed by hand or if you trust your washing machine, washed on a cold setting. Make sure you invest in appropriate cashmere detergent. Don't choose spin and dry flat.
All of our cashmere is sourced from waste streams and is repaired, reused or revitalised by hand.
All our packaging is sourced from suppliers who specialise in eco-friendly materials and is made from either 100% recycled, recyclable and/or compostable materials. We choose not to print directly onto our packaging, instead using a custom made stamp with vegan-friendly ink, for a more sustainable approach to its disposal. Unless you would like to keep hold of your box or postage bag for storage, all our packaging should and can be recycled - so be sure to!
