There are so many aspects to sustainability from how something has been produced to how we use and take care of it that navigating sustainable wardrobe choices can be actually quite tricky.

With everything we do here at The Wool Club, we aim to contribute to a more sustainable, fair and eco-friendly way of living and making, and this new design feels like an important step in that.
