Keep your mitts warm this season in a pair of shark mitts from sustainable fashion warriors, Christopher Raeburn and Wool and the Gang, who have teamed up to bring these winter warmers.
Spread the love for the oceans and the shark with a pair of Bruce Knitmitts from Wool and the Gang’s Autumn/Winter collection. Designed by Christopher Raeburn and knitted by the Wool and the Gang team, Bruce Knitmitts are made from Wool and the Gang’s sustainably produced 100% Crazy Sexy Wool, ethically sourced and made from Peruvian mountain sheep.
Christopher Raeburn has successfully brought sustainable fashion to light on the international catwalks. The British based designer works specifically with sustainable and recycled materials throughout his collections in his efforts to bring sustainable design to the mainstream fashion audience, embodying luxury with integrity.
In his latest collaborative project, Christopher Raeburn has teamed up with Disney to create Mickey Mouse accessories, made from soft high-grade leather ethically sourced as a by-product of the meat industry.
While wool is natural, renewable and biodegradable, Wool and the Gang also work with factories to repurpose their fashion waste into new yarns to reduce landfill.
Wool and the Gang say: “We’ve all done it, purchased low quality, cheap fast fashion made in factories abroad and wondered ‘how do they make it so cheap?’ The reality is not good. There has to be a better way to produce, one that allows us to wear with pride and sleep soundly. So Wool and the Gang was born — pioneering fashion production that’s made in a sustainable way, bringing back knitting as a viable means of production for generations to come.”
