Why to buy: This Work Jacket, tailored to perfection by ISTO., is one of the core foundations of the Portuguese company line-up of essentials.
Softened with an organic wash, cut from a premium heavyweight 300 g/sqm GOTS certified fabric, this Work Jacket is inspired by one of the most classic garments of modern times: the french Veste de Travail. It is 100% made in Portugal, from 100% organic cotton.
What we love: The Portuguese company ISTO. offers luxury essentials that are also affordable. Its collections are 100% organic and recycled. ISTO. does not rely on seasonal collections. They have one single collection and try to make it permanently available. They look for fashion staples that could be better and work on those until they feel they are done perfectly.
Quality over quantity. Each new launch is carefully planned to address the real needs of men looking for the best everyday essentials. The end result is a growing collection of organic and natural materials that is made to look amazing, fit perfectly and last longer.
Why to buy: Sustainability is an opportunity, not a constraint to creativity, and at Thalie they make recycling an art. Thalie was conceived as a brand strongly oriented towards sustainability in all its phases. From concept to distribution, Thalie is a pioneering brand in sustainable luxury leather goods and a new key player alongside other French luxury brands.
At Thalie Paris, they create daring handbags for those who do not want to compromise on style and functionality, but understand the importance of not over-consuming while using available resources. Each Thalie bag is designed to sublimate women, focusing on ergonomics and movement, sensual and durable materials.
What we love: The Vegan "cactus" collection by Thalie launched in spring 2020 is innovative because it is made from cactus alter leather, a material made from cactus fibre supplied by the Mexican company Desserto and PETA-labelled.
This innovative, vegan material is OEKO-TEX certified and is developed and produced on sustainable farms in Mexico from the prickly pear. It is an exciting new vegan material that is both luxurious and durable. It is highly resistant to abrasion, rubbing and tearing. It is also soft and breathable. As an organic material of plant origin, with low carbon emissions, low energy and water consumption, it is an environmentally friendly material. Desserto has been selected for the final of the LVMH Innovation Awards in 2021.

Why to buy: Made with earth's softest fiber, ECOAYA designs 100% plastic-free, biodegradable dresses, t-shirts, underwear, leggings and more. Organic Pima cotton is incredibly breathable and smooth against your skin. This premium fiber upgrades your style and with the timeless design, it will never go out style. Being the brand and the clothing manufacturer in Peru, all clothes are single-sourced, meaning from the fiber to finished garment, everything is done in Peru. Once the clothes are finished, they are packaged in biodegradable bags and sent to our distribution centers in the USA and The Netherlands.
What we love: With a single-origin supply chain ECOAYA maintains a low carbon footprint and maintain transparency in its supply chain. They also only use biodegradable materials to create their clothes. This means the threads and labels are also made from cotton. The elastic bands found on their underwear and bottoms are made with cotton and natural rubber making them 100% biodegradable. They promise to never use plastic in any of their clothes. Their next goal is to completely remove their clothes from low impact dyes and only use natural dyes. This is a big step for them. They are already testing natural dyes and will have these items available this year.
Why to buy: Noblest materials, high craftsmanship and art forms make Malo's knitwear unique. Their MOG line is the perfect gift for your little furry friends. Remember that cashmere is the natural fiber for excellence. Malo's one comes from Mongolia, from small non-intensive farms, where goats are combed in the spring to obtain the precious hair. Leather collars and leashes are 100% metal free: hypoallergenic, hypotoxic, non-carcinogenic. MALO chooses metal free leather to prevent pollution and metal details do not contain nickel.
What we love: MOG, the MALO FOR DOG line, creates bonds that last over time. From the most precious yarn, this collection has been created to envelop with love your little friend. All MOG garments are made with love and wisdom. Each model is unique, just like our furry friends. The colors are selected in limited edition.
There are three collections: Less is More, the perfection and simplicity of a colorful and enveloping cashmere sweater; Malo-Ve, the English rib, refined and timeless; and Timeless Love, a sweater that will become your favorite, to be used over time.

Why to buy: Bugaia® was born out of the desire to revive eras, genres and beautiful materials, while maintaining an ethical conscience. Artistic, free in its creation, highlighting the beauty of the containers, the brand brings another way of conceiving the olfactory experience.
Bugaia® is first and foremost a family story, a partnership between a father and a daughter, to imagine intense, subtle and distinctive fragrances. To this family passion for perfumery is added the expertise of a perfumer from Grasse and his team, with whom the perfume house works hand in hand to conceive and realise their desires. Their French know-how that will transport you into a decor with a strong style: a slightly retro character in the motifs and touches of Art Deco in the shapes.
What we love: Bugaia® has focused on aesthetics without compromising its ethical commitment, proving that luxury and responsible consumption are mutually exclusive. By using their French know-how, Bugaia® bases its values on excellence, from the design of the containers to the elaboration of the contents: Glass replaces plastic and is revived according to your desires; the packaging is made of environmentally friendly FSC paper; the formulas are, as much as possible, concentrated in natural components, but not to the detriment of perfume diffusion; the wax, which is largely natural, guarantees a magnificent diffusion of the fragrances in the room.
The Isadora, Tamara, Zelda, Ava and Elsa collections are available in candles, diffusers, fabric mists and washes.
