We looked everywhere, but finding the right quality and the range of patterns and colors we wanted for our wool proved impossible. That’s why we decided to make our own. Most brands and tailors in Dubai buy fabric from cloth merchants, but we wanted complete ownership of the process.
By buying wool directly from the farm, we can get exactly what we want, while shortening the supply chain. Working in this way requires up-front investment, but the reward is premium quality organic wool for our clients, without having to pass on the cost incurred when dealing with several middlemen.

Happy Sunday everyone! Today for #sustainablesunday
we wanted to share this illustration that reminds us that the negative impact of the fashion industry on the world truly has no limits 🌎 When a factory anywhere in the world discards toxic chemicals in the nearby river 🏭 or when a piece of clothing 👕 ends up in a landfill to sit there for hundreds of years, the pollution of the soil, air, and water is affecting all of us! Reducing the amount of clothes we buy and choosing quality over quantity is one of the most efficient way to protect our beautiful planet and limit our impact 🌿 #BetheChange #BetheIcon
Share with us your illustrations using #sustainablesunday
and we will feature our favorites! 💚
❥ Big issues
❥ 16 January, 2019 ❥ ❥ ❥ Dancing after my Coffee. I love dancing. One of the activities I practice because it makes me happy and I feel light.
We know that the world is full of big issues. Unfortunately. Sometimes unfair. There is awareness. The information is available but there is no action. I am sure you heard before every problem has its solution. That’s true. And all the issues could be solvable. Now if you want to solve it or not. Now again it is more question of responsibility and at what extent we are responsible and capable ? Everyone should be involved in these issues. Each of us has its own part to solve the social, environmental and economical problems. It seems overwhelming and we get overwhelmed by the amount of the information. Someone will tell me I have a lot of problems in my daily life why should I care ? Guess what if you knew how to live your life and perceive them as challenges and lessons then you will live free and happy. The reason why we skip the news sometimes and focus on our daily lives. Should we give up ? Or should we keep up the battle ? The question would be are you really willing to solve these issues or live with selfishness and ignore them. As consumers we have the power if we are more educated about these issues then we will react and invest on the right things. As businesses we have the power to build and innovate responsibly. As governments we have the power to make new laws, standards and ethical norms. See everything has a solution. Where is the action ? As brands we have the power to rethink our business models. As unaware and not informed people we have the power to seek for information and be selective regarding this. Because not all information is true.
So are you really willing to solve these issues ? Remember you have the power to solve. Your actions and behavior could make a difference.
I wish you a beautiful Sunday.
