La Methode is an ethically sustainable proposal for finished garments that values the best of Italian craftsmanship and industrial economies.
Craftsmanship, transparency, ethics, and local production are the essential elements of this ambitious project.
We offer premium functional,essential creative and ecological garments, always made with natural fibers, organic fibers, and reclaimed fabrics.
The production; will be exclusively on demand and byordered.
This allows us to avoid overproduction, a phenomenon that has been causing devastating impacts for decades, and to directly control every product.
The value is entirely given in quality and in its supply chain, which is Italian and very local.
The production chain of our garments involves different actors, and each product has its specific connection.
Each phase requires a very defined and specialized competence, often more than one: all the dedicated professions contribute to the realization of the project.
Behind the scenes of your La Methode garment, there are:
United States, Europe, Taiwan, and China.
Many of the yarns we use come from far away.
We do not boast about it, on the contrary: today finding fibers grown and processed in Italy is a challenging task.
This is where the supply chain becomes entirely Italian.
The certificate we apply to each garment encompasses our credibility, our common sense, and the desire to offer products that tell an opportunity.
Thanks to an artisanal processing carried out in Produce Sinapsi, we recycle pre-consumption waste raw materials, obtaining new yarns that are perfectly usable, of high quality, and with an iconic look.
At the same time, post-consumption fabrics are recovered, made negligible by defects.
The production of fabrics obtained with recycled yarns in natural, raw fibers is curated by Produce Sinapsi, which puts its knowledge and warehouse at disposal with great passion.
Each fabric is unique and tailored for La Methode.
Each fabric is unique and tailor-made for La Methode.
Some of the fabrics we make require special care.
The most resistant yarns, such as those made from Liberian fibers, are properly prepared before and after weaving to minimize waste, and then we proceed with artisanal mending.
One of the topics we are investing in is minimizing energy and water consumption, as well as related emissions.
This research focuses on light refinement processes and, at the same time, on the creation of performing and low-energy fabrics.
Finishing occurs at various stages of the process and can take place on raw materials, semi-finished fabrics, or finished garments, leaving ample room for experimentation.
From prototype design to pattern development to assembly, everything happens in Italy thanks to a nearly zero-kilometer supply chain in the Varese district.
We carefully prepare the packaging of the garments, made with a simple sheet of recycled paper.
No envelope, no additional extra cost.
To create and make La Methode garments even more recognizable, some details are indispensable, from buttons to bias tapes, and finally to a numbered hologram that makes each of our garments unique and unrepeatable.
We all make the difference, including you. Impulse for change, shared choice, and values to fight for. It will be us, people, who make the difference.
The message is meant to be crystal clear.
To propose a simple methode for living better without significan sacrificies.To live in harmony with the world, drawing on the right resources and making conscious choices.
La Methode also draws inspiration from "Walden. Life in the woods" of H.D. Thoreau.
His reflections, before us, have also inspired Mahatma Gandhi and many other people who have found valid and healthy principles in Walden, applicable immediately to their lives.

Backbone of the group with firm doggedness and impetus.
She grew up on Lake Como and came all the way to the Middle Country, in a succession of explorations of cultures and dialects, from Como to Mandarin.
Concrete, direct and humble, she approached the textile world step by step to the point of being completely captivated by it.
The opportunity to give a positive signal is something she feels is imperious and so she throws herself headlong into the La Methode project.
A determined force of nature with a passion for the textile world.
She continuously experiments and tries to realise new ideas thanks to the support of Bruno who accompanies her on the journey of knitted fabrics.
Difficult to devise and standardise but damn strong and expressive.
Our world has enraptured her, to her detriment, but she seems so happy about it that she takes a trip every day to explore excellent raw materials and give her contribution to all projects.
Perfectly in line with the ambitions of La Methode.
Fresh energy, lifeblood.
