What makes this product sustainable?
At Eugenie, we do the research to make it easy for you to find products that you can feel good about purchasing, using, and wearing.
Each new designer we work with starts with a conversation about sustainability and how it relates to their brand and products.
Sustainability can mean many different things, we tried to break it down for you in a way that is easy to understand.
Local, Naturally Sourced Yarns
This sweater is made from locally sourced yarns. Micaela Greg works with Alpaca and Pima Cotton yarns that are grown by local farmers in Peru. They use GOTS certified dye methods to keep their fabrics safe for the wearer and for the environment.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain
Small, Family Run Factory
This sweater was made in Peru, produced in a small family run factory. There is an importance placed on working with local knitters drawing on their expertise while supporting local industries, to produce these long-lasting, high quality sweaters.
Micaela Greg intentionally keeps their production small and as local as possible.
