Good working conditions
This product is knitted in a factory in Mauritius, following European standards and salaries. The recycled yarn is spun in France.
Using discarded material and making it into new long lasting high quality products elevates the value of the raw material and reduces waste.
Hekne never buy big amounts of fabric for production, to make sure they don’t end up with excess materials. They don’t mind using the same materials for different collections if it means using what they already have in stock, and they want to give their garments a life that lasts longer than one season.
