The vegan cap is a classic five panel design where we choose a natural non-woven material called Piñatex. Easy to adjust size by the neck strap. 

Designed in Sweden, manufactured in Portugal.

Fabric: Piñatex is made from pineapple leaf fibre, which is a byproduct of the agriculture industry. No extra land, water or pesticides are required to produce the raw material. The dyes used for Piñatex are GOTS approved and the resins comply with AFIRM standards. Visit the fabric producer and learn more here.

Recycling recommendation

We wish that you love and wear this pieceover and over again for many years. But, we totally understand if you wantnewness and if you feel like that we would love to receive the piece back for the purpose of up-cycling or circulate it on our second hand site. If you cant be bothered to send it back then we suggest you sell it or donate it on another platform - give it to a someone who will cherish and love it.

Lopes & Carvahlo and local sub contractors in Braga, Portugal.

This is our main partner for the first drop of the slow collection.

The company is based in Braga, Portugal. It is a family run and owned business with 39 people currently in the total staff. We spoke to our main contact, Marta, who is the daughter of the founders.

We operate on the standard working hours per week: daily 8.30h to 12.30h, in the morning (with 10min. break at 10.00h); then, in the afternoon, from 13.30h to 17.30h. The youngest member of staff is 23 years old, our pattern designer. And the oldest are my parents at 65 years old. The oldest sewing lady is 61 years old and all employees have a health insurance. Average wage for the production staff: around 800,00€, being the minimum wage regulated by the State at 635,00€

We usually donate children´s clothing to orphanages, for instance; to the local scouts for them to raise money for their annual activities; we also cooperate with the Arts Festival Guimarães noc noc whenever they need materials to some of their activities.

Our efforts to limit emissions and carbon footprint in the production facilities: all our lights are Led; we organize our daily itinerary to suppliers in a way that we can reduce the fuel used; we are now applying for the first star on the Lean & Green project; we also support our local industrial community by sourcing everything locally: we reduce the carbon footprint and help the textile business around us. We are now developing a project to achieve completely renewable power driven facilities and production no later than 2023.

Other sustainable initiatives: we have participated on a survey and study case for a research Ernest & Young were doing to the European commission regarding Sustainability strategies for companies involving all the Stakeholders and governance. We always give our clients options to go more sustainable, even when they are not requesting it at first contact.
