The “in”tangible quality
behind our drop
It’s natural that when it comes to purchase products made with labour-intensive materials, like cotton, consumers become more sceptical and questioning.
This is why for our latest drop, the effort in research and development brought us to select the world’s finest cotton, produced respecting the planet and the local communities.
At Artknit Studios we embrace the slow-fashion philosophy – good quality, clean environment, and fairness for both consumers and producers – in an effort to boost the creation of premium knitwear, made with minimal negative impact on the environment, finally available at attainable prices.
We select the finest natural fibers, and we guarantee full transparency over our suppliers and makers.
Read the article to find out more about the reasons that brought us to choose Supima® cotton for our last drop, At The Market.
HIGH QUALITY STANDARDS
By choosing to realize At The Market with 100% Supima® mercerized cotton by Iafil, we can ensure our customers high-quality standards and full traceability. Further, as for our other drops, we decided to adopt the on-demand model in order to reduce inventory waste to zero.
Supima cotton, a rare, premium natural fiber, grown in North America, is a long staple cotton that can be woven into smooth, almost silky fabrics. The extra-long fibers produce yarns that are both stronger and softer than yarns produced with short fiber cotton, making the knitwear crafted with Supima more comfortable and more resistant to pilling over time.
In particular, we chose Supima cotton because its production follows high-environmental and ethical standards.
The farmers ensure that they are growing the best-quality cotton in the world with savvy management of natural resources, such as water. They use technologically advanced agricultural processes to preserve the health of the soil and conserve the water that nourishes it.
