Au Natural: The Brands Innovating With Raw Materials

We love to champion those brands who using natural resources. Whether it’s ultra-soft alpaca wool hand-sheared by Alpaca Samka, or responsibly sourced organic salmon skin accessories from Aitch Aitch, here are the labels that will take you back to basics.

ALPACA SAMKA

Andrea Oneto created Alpaca Samka to rescue the British textile heritage link between the UK and Chile. Her signature collections are based on the history of British immigrants from Patagonian sheep ranches, the Pacific port of Valparaíso and the potash saltpetre mines of the Atacama Desert, producing hand-woven sustainable luxury alpaca garments in a wide range of natural colours.

AITCH AITCH 

The core collection of Aitch Aitch is made with a luxurious, sustainable and unique material. The salmon skin Aitch Aitch uses is sourced from sustainable, organic salmon farms in Ireland, and tanned and dyed using non-toxic, non-chemical techniques. What would otherwise be discarded as a by-product of the fishing industry, salmon skin is transformed into a luxurious and innovative material – our favourite? The Amelia backpack for the ultimate carry-all.
