      With a permanent collection and direct-to-you sales, we don't have wholesale markups, deadstock, sales or discounts. The traditional retail price shows what we'd have to charge if we sold our garments through multi-brand stores (wholesale) - 6x the landed cost. Instead, our markup is between 2.5-4.5x landed cost depending on product and country characteristics. It covers the cost of our garments and a lot more: VAT, cost of sales (shipping, warehousing, payment, web systems etc.), marketing, admin (salaries, rent, product development etc.) and financial costs, while maintaining a slim profit to keep investing in our mission.

      70% Overall traceability

      Main fabric: Pre-consumer nylon collected in Daegu, KR. Insulation: PET bottles collected, chip production, fiber production unknown.
