The look, fit and comfort are essential but not enough on their own: the impact of yvo et moi on the environment is at the heart of my philosophy. Eco-responsibility isn't about using big words and lots of blah blah blah. When I say that our products are eco-responsible, I mean that :
the raw material is GOTS and RWS certified, natural, of excellent quality and produced with respect for the animals.
The pieces are knitted very locally.
The production is Italian (in the same place as the knitting actually).
The workshop is audited to ensure that workers and the environment are respected.
The carbon footprint is greatly reduced.
Water pollution and consumption are calculated and controlled
Our knitwear is Italian, our lace is from Calais, our embroidery is French or Swiss and we manufacture in the north of Italy.
