A note from our founder, Kristin: "When I saw this ribbon in Tokyo, I literally stopped and waited to approach. I couldn't believe my eyes; it was exactly what I had been looking for. I've talked to ribbon makers from Warsaw to Saint Etienne to Prague but hadn't found the right ribbon. But this is it! This family-run company in Japan hits all the right points! BTW, I especially like that the daughters are the ones who insisted they weave organic cotton and linen." #smartwomen
Eco Credentials: Flax needs little or no fertilizers. It doesn’t really require many pesticides either as it can grow in poor quality soil. One hectare of flax can retain 3.7 tonnes of CO2. Every part of the plant is used, what isn’t used to produce linen can be used to make linseed oil, paper, cattle feed or even soap. Linen is therefore almost naturally organic. It is completely biodegradable, recyclable and due to its natural absorbency, it requires less dye than cotton. Linen therefore scores high on the ecological chart.
