DESPITE ALL ODDS PUFFA
WHAT'S IT MADE FROM?
Our pearlescent white PUFFA jacket fabric is 100% silk taffeta, along with the piped frosted-mint 100% silk taffeta sourced from Fabric Merchants in Kingsland, Auckland. Fabric Merchants have sourced this fabric from the Como Region in Italy and have sea freighted it to New Zealand.
The Puffa is then lined with a Viscose fabric from Frost Textiles in Sandringham, Auckland. Frost textiles have sourced this fabric from Japan and have sea freighted it to New Zealand (both lower carbon emissions - yay!) This is a deadstock fabric, meaning it is either end-of-line, excess from a large scale designer, a mill overrun or a cancelled order. By using deadstock, we are able to use up already existing fabrics where they would otherwise have ended up in landfill, we are supporting New Zealand local businesses and we have an up-close and personal relationship with our suppliers and fabrications. These incredible silks are top of the line Italian silks which we don’t often have the opportunity to source here in New Zealand. Thanks to Richard, Jess and the team at Fabric Merchants for bringing these incredible fabrics to the table and for putting up with our indecisive design process!!!
