A happy and long-lasting wool & linen pairing
Adding wool to our shirts: that's the audacious bet we've taken up in the design of our three Activewear models in wool and linen. As magical as it seems, these two natural resources with amazing characteristics ensure a happy and long-lasting pairing in our shirts. The reasons are simple and multiple: wool and linen have surprising technical qualities. Where one has its weaknesses, the other comes to erase it! Our Activewear shirts are thermo-regulating, anti-odor and wrinkle-free. They allow you to be active, in other words, to be perfectly comfortable throughout your busy days. To sum up: unstoppable, just like you!
Breathe at the pace of your shirt
We highlighted the best of both worlds - between the animal and vegetal side - to create 100% natural shirts. The high-performance blend of wool and linen provides a breathable fabric very pleasant to wear directly on the skin, without the discomfort of a heavy texture. Since it is an airy fabric, it is also odorless. You can then spend a whole day with, without fear of unpleasant odors of sweating evacuated by a continuous flow of air circulating in the fibers. Thanks to its thermo-regulating properties, variations of temperature are handled easily: the warmth when entering the subway station or the freezing feeling of the fresh food aisle in the middle of summer will be a forgotten experience. In summer, the Activewear wool and linen shirt offers a pleasant feeling of freshness, and in contrast, keeps body heat in mid-season. It is the perfect shirt for changing climates without stressing your body from too big temperature differences.
A soft fabric of merino wool
The wool used for the manufacture of our shirts comes from merino sheep, mainly located in Oceania. This high quality wool is ZQ certified, authenticating its traceability and the respectful work of the wool. The production process and the quality of the raw materials employed allow us to obtain a wool and linen textile of high regularity while preserving the environment. If you have preconceptions about wool, don't worry, it won't scratch and it will be very comfortable to wear. By exploiting the breathable characteristics of merino wool, sweat due to body movements during the day is easily evacuated, which limits unpleasant smells.
The authenticity of linen
You may have been surprised by the lack of cotton, the most used natural fiber in the manufacture of shirts known for its easy care and affordability. In order to obtain an interesting blend with merino wool, we chose linen, appreciated for its thermoregulating, anti-odor and antistatic qualities. Linen fiber absorbs humidity and evacuates it to preserve your shirt from unpleasant odors. Its hollow filaments allow air to circulate freely and, just like wool, will allow hot or cool breezes to be retained inside its yarns to regulate the temperature of your skin. If linen alone can be the cause of wrinkles, it remains soft and not very rough when mixed with ... wool for example! The use of linen is not an insignificant action either for the planet. Unlike cotton, linen is a wild plant that does not need to be artificially irrigated by man. Linen is not very water-intensive and only needs natural rainwater irrigation. Linen easily crosses time and trends while limiting its environmental impact.

All year long wearable
Made with 53% wool and 47% linen, this Activewear model has an average weight of 123 g/m2 and can therefore be worn all year round without risking getting too hot or too cold. Since it contains almost half of its wool composition, you can wash your Activewear shirt in the washing machine using a wool or delicate laundry cycle at low temperature. At first impression, your shirt may show a little stiffness that will disappear with the first few washes. According to our experience, the more you wash your shirt, the softer it will be: just like a good wine, it will get better with time!
These 3 shirts have been created to let you dress effortlessly in style while maintaining some versatility. The slightly grained aspect of the design gives strength of character to this model while maintaining the codes of casual elegance. The luminous aspect of this authentic fabric turns it into the ideal shirt for enjoying the beautiful days to come.
Its light blue fabric is like a beautiful sunny and cloudless sky! You will notice some streaks stitched of white which makes this model unique: it is one of the peculiarities of a linen shirt. This hidden placket shirt has no visible mother-of-pearl buttons for a more formal style.
Its pattern, called "stick stripes", suggests that the width of the stripes is proportional to the width of their spacing. Our fine striped mandarin collar shirt is a hybrid and versatile piece that will go very well with a suit jacket or jeans to reveal its casual side.
With its fine blue and white stripes and apparent buttons made of genuine mother of pearl of Troca, the band collar has a button to close the neckline, giving it a slightly more casual look than our other two models. The micro-stripes are a pattern that you can wear everyday enabling a trompe-l'oeil effect, lengthening and refining the silhouette.
Made with love for a traditional craft
Made with care in our shirt atelier in Romania from a traditional Italian fabric Albiate 1830, our retro-chic shirts are made with the highest attention to detail by our shirt artisans.
