At La Cave à Laine we choose everything very carefully, from fabric to thread, to yarn, with the future of our world in mind: minimum waste, all natural, no animal derivates.
Our products are made only with cotton and/or linen, from thread to fabric.
There is no interfacing or plastic involved.
All our fabric comes from ethical sources within the European Community.
We use three types of fabric:
- 100% organic cotton, hand-dyed with fiber reactive dye in our Atelier in Alsace, France.
- 100% cotton or a mix of cotton and linen, hand-printed and/or hand-dyed in our Atelier in Alsace, France.
- 100% cotton or a mix of cotton and linen, specially printed for us in Germany.
We use only one kind of thread: 100% cotton.
All handles are made of 100% cotton webbing.
The draw-sting cord used on some bags is 100% cotton.
All the gears we use to complement our bags are metal.
Even our labels are made of 100% woven cotton, made in the European Union.
