CHANGE THE WAY YOU SHOP
Do you care for the things you buy the same way you care for those you make? Knitting your own clothes makes you feel good and improves self-esteem. Also, we tend to take better care of our handmade pieces, so they last longer than the one we buy. Make your own clothes, take care of them, and you’ll be contributing to a more sustainable planet where the slow-fashion industry has an important role.
WAK is trying to spread the slow-fashion movement by bringing new value to handmade fashion items. We work on developing trendy designs and kits for beginners, so we can reach younger generations.
CONTRIBUTE TO A BETTER PLANET
Have you ever thought about how the clothes that we buy are made?
If knitting your own sweater takes you more than a week and costs more than $90, how can other brands produce them in less than one day for under $20? We encourage everyone to think about the labor, costs, and production processes that we’re supporting. By doing this, we have an opportunity to reduce pollution and our impact on the environment.
We care a lot about our materials and how they’re sourced. Our team oversees every step in our production process to ensure that our products are environmentally friendly. Also, We contribute to local communities, creating opportunities for work and community development through our long production process: A little bit to us could mean a lot to them.
Apart from our yarn, our needles and hooks are artisan made from 100% FSC Certified beechwood. Our paper bags are recycled, recyclable, and reusable. From the moment you open your kit, there are so many ways to give a second life to these bags and reduce waste.
OTHER INFO ABOUT OUR MATERIALS
A recycled yarn made of 95% cotton and 5% other fibers. The idea started as a way to give a second life to used or old jeans. Thanks to the recycling process, the fibers are treated, mixed, and then spun into a single thread, ready to knit.
Our new yarn: Bamboo
It uses a very low quantity of water for growth, helping conserve natural water resources. It also produces more oxygen per square foot than any other forest system.
An environmentally friendly fiber made from recycled shirts that deserve a second life.
