How it was made
The recycled wool peacoat coat is made from pre-consumer industrial waste selected by color, transformed into a new fiber and carded. From here a new wool cloth can be woven. It is necessary to add some polyamide recycled from old fishing nets, in order to reinforce the fibers, stressed by the recycling of the old fabric.
Thanks to the selection by color of industrial wool waste, the production of this recycled cloth can save a lot of water and chemicals, which are necessary for a new color.
Who made it
What really makes the coat Achab a truly valuable garment is the careful and precise care of the smallest detail. The Achab jacket made with a sustainable woolen cloth, is made a few meters from us, in Veruska's workshop by the hands of her skilled artisans.
Why do we say our prices are fair 365 days a year?
Because we choose to produce in Italy, with valuable craftsmanship. Because we choose quality raw materials that are sustainable for the planet. Because we produce small quantities to limit waste, which makes it difficult for us to lower unit costs.
That's not all. Compared to our costs, we have a low profit margin. We don't intend to accumulate wealth, we rather reinvest in research, which allows us to create value and grow as a brand.
