Our story begins in Paris, in the district of Le Marais to be precise, where a Gobelins-style woven tapestry caught Gudrun’s eye. It went on to inspire her design for this autumn’s artistic cardigan.
We chose to use recycled cotton as the basic component – it’s so gratifying to use materials that would otherwise go to waste. To make the end result extra durable, we added some organic cotton as well. Recycled-cotton fibres tend to be shorter than virgin ones and are therefore often mixed with organic-cotton fibres to produce a good, strong yarn. Et voilà, out came the comfy, eco-friendly “Gobelin” cardigan!
