The shirt, produced by the La Methode project, is designed to combine essentiality and quality, intended as care taken in the selection of raw materials and in the management and localization of transformation processes.

The choice to produce only on demand, locally, and involving healthy and controllable companies in the supply chain has allowed us to trace the product and collect certain and transparent data on its environmental, ethical, and social impact.
The analysis also allows us to experiment with advanced finishing cycles that save about 90% of water compared to standard cycles and almost completely avoid the use of chemical additives.

Did you know that nettle

The fibers are obtained from wild nettle, a plant derived from the Urticaceae family. Cellulose and nutrients are obtained from this plant in addition to textile fibers. The nettle we choose comes from the highlands of Nepal.
Used as early as the Bronze Age, it has recently been rediscovered due to its totally natural extraction.
Elasticity, strength and luster as well as increasing strength over time. The fabric obtained from it is soft and breathable.
Like all Liberian fibers, it boasts breathable, antistatic and insulating properties, thanks to the hollow fibers, while also being hypoallergenic.
