Sustainability and sustainable fashion have built our collections long before it was a well used concept within the textile industry, partly because wool has always played a central role, but also because we produce in Sweden and Europe.
KNITTED IN GÄLLSTAD SINCE 1946
We are one of very few textile manufacturers in Sweden. We have our own production facility in Gällstad where approximately 90% of all knitting takes place. We also have our design- and sample department, embroidery service and a small sewing deparment here. Additional production takes place in partner factories in Europe, primarily in Estonia, Lithuania and Poland. Our own production and the manufacturing partners in Europe imply a high degree of flexibility, where we can produce by order without speculating and risking overstock. Having production in Sweden and Europe also means shorter distances with shorter shipments and transports, and instantly a lower environmental impact.
SYSTAINABILITY ALL THE WAY
As explained above sustainable fashion is not just about choosing the right fiber & materials, it is also about the choice of producer, how they act, their choices, where they are located, how far the garments need to be shipped etc.
IVANHOE HOME COLLECTION
The increasing demand of taking your responsibility and both producing and consuming with future generations in mind, is the main reason why we now present our Ivanhoe Home Collection. The home collection is lovingly based on offcuts and surplus material from our
production; yarn, buttons and knitted materials are reworked and refined to be given a new life and new perspective. Colours and paterna are determined by availability resulting in unique, eco-friendly and beautiful home interior details warming both body and sould. The home collection is an important part of our work towards a more responsible and sustainable manufacturing process. It is all about maximising use and minimizing waste – reclaim and reuse.
