It starts with responsible fibres
When designing a piece of GS Knitwear, responsible design has always been at the heart of my collection.
Every step is considered, from the origin of the raw fibre, the animals that produce it, the land it is grown on, the regenerative farming that puts back and restores biodiversity, and the final processes and finishes that create each piece of GS Knitwear.
Slow fashion has been the core pillar of my brand since the beginning; I believe in creating forever knitwear with integrity, ethics, and responsibility that starts from the first step to the last.
I would love to share with you my YARN CERTIFICATION featured in my collections, from sumptuous lambswool to sparkly viscose as well as buttons that help protect the Amazon rainforest.
Please see below a summary of the natural yarn fibres I use and their certifications.
The lambswool yarn in my collection has RWS (Responsible Wool Standards) certification, meaning that both the sheep that produce it and the land on which they graze is actively protected. Discover the collection knitted in RWS Lambswool.
The cashmere blended in the Maud and Mauden jumpers has SFA (Sustainable Fibre Alliance) certification, a manufacturing standard dedicated to creating responsible cashmere production practices that safeguard people, animals, and the environment. Discover the GS Sweaters here.
The premium cotton knitted in my GS sock collection has been certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard known as GOTS.
SPARKLY GS SOCKS
The sparkly yarn detail within the GS socks has either FSC (Forest Stewardship Council)
and Eco Vero certification or STANDARD 100 OEKO-TEX® certification.
