THE JOURNEY

This is the full journey of white Aesthete lingerie.

STEP 01. THE HEMP FIELD

The journey of all white Aesthete lingerie starts in the hemp fields in Shanxi, China. Hemp is a resistant crop and can be grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Our hemp is grown in this natural manner. The hemp is then partially retted and dried.

• One hectare of hemp creates bres equivalent to 2-3 hectares of cotton

• Hemp absorbs and accumulates more CO2 than most crop

• Hemp grows fast and can easily reach a height of 4 meters

STEP 02. FROM PLANT TO FIBRE

The Hemp straw is then mechanically peeled and goes through degumming which at HempAge, is done at a highly engineered purification plant that ensures that the environment will not be impacted in the process. Then, the fibres are carded and separated and spun and last, woven with silk threads made in traditional manner. Our suppliers textiles are exclusively coloured with reactive dyes, in accordance with the demands of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Dyeing and finishing is done according to the GOTS guidelines by a GOTS certified unit.

STEP 03. FROM FIBRE TO FABRIC

Then, the fibres are carded and separated and spun and last, woven with silk threads made in traditional manner, making our lingeri the softest and most luxurious hemp-experience you've ever seen. Our suppliers textiles are exclusively coloured with reactive dyes, in accordance with the demands of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Dyeing and finishing is done according to the GOTS guidelines by a GOTS certified unit.
Our textile supplier HempAge is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation and dedicated in research and development of manufacturing hemp textiles. Read more about our hemp textiles here

STEP 05. FROM FABRIC TO LINGERIE

Our manufacturer is based in Liepaja, Latvia. The small company is owned by Tatiana, who used to own a lamp shop, but in the same building, created a new business over 15 years ago when she was forced out of business by larger companies in the same area. The sewing room is therefor filled with ornamental chandeliers and lamps. The decoration is otherwise modest, and the exterior is not flashy and needs a name sign - why we where a little sceptic when we arrived. The working conditions are good and the atmosphere is light and fun. The employees teas each other in a peculiar Latvian good hearted fashion.

STEP 06. LACE

Aesthete lace is made from organic cotton (GOTS) and sewn neatly on the back of the garment. Our manufacturer is a family owned and run company who use non-toxic production techniques, ensuring that no chemicals are used in the process. Our lace is 100% natural.
