Our Upcycled Materials

for a more circular fashion

We have made the choice of upcyling: we only use existing stocks from French and Italian luxury houses and carefully choose our materials for a perfect fit, adapted to the style of the piece. To go further, we have chosen to ban polyester and polyamide from our materials so as not to participate in the phenomenon of micro-plastic pollution. Discover our "upcycled" materials.

Grain of Powder

Also called Barathea, grain de poudre is a noble fabric with a matte appearance, woven in finely combed wool yarns, sometimes mixed with mohair. It is the fabric par excellence for tuxedos and tailcoats as well as for evening blazers. We have chosen an upcycled powder grain from Nona Source: it is made of 100% wool and comes from Italy. The wool gives it a very elegant appearance, with a contemporary matte finish - thin enough to allow freedom of movement in the material and thick enough to guarantee a perfect fit.

Silk Duchess Satin

Duchess satin is a fabric called "satin weave" with a smooth and shiny appearance. Contrary to some popular belief, satin is not always made of silk and there are many synthetic satins, mainly made of polyester. Our satin is an upcycled silk duchess satin at Nona Source: it is made of 100% silk and comes from Italy. Its thickness gives it a lot of hold and its noble material gives it an elegant shiny finish.

Wool Gabardine

Naturally stretchy and waterproof, gabardine is a fabric with a very tight weave which makes it robust. Made to last over time and to soften over the years, gabardine is particularly suitable for jackets and coats. We chose an upcycled wool gabardine from Nona Source: made from 100% virgin wool and woven in Italy. Off-white, more elegant than pure white, this gabardine is thick enough not to be transparent.

Stretch and Waterproof Wool Gabardine

Naturally stretchy and waterproof, gabardine is a fabric with a very tight weave which makes it robust. Made to last over time and soften over the years, gabardine is particularly suitable for jackets and coats. We chose an upcycled wool gabardine from Nona Source: made of 99% virgin wool with 1% elastane and woven in Italy.

Linen and Viscose Twill

Naturally breathable and heat-regulating, the linen is woven here in a twill that is both flexible and robust. Warming in winter and refreshing in summer, linen can accompany you in all seasons. We have chosen an upcycled linen and viscose twill from Nona Source: it is made of 70% linen and 30% viscose and was woven in Italy. Blended with viscose, linen will wrinkle less than if the fabric was 100% linen. Viscose is an artificial, non-synthetic material: made from bamboo pulp, so it does not contribute to micro-plastic pollution. However, viscose is typically best avoided, as its manufacturing process is chemical-intensive and bamboo production is generally opaque. Our twill is upcycled, i.e. we give life to dormant stocks that had already been produced.

Viscose Cady Crepe

Cady crepe is a fabric that is both supple and quite thick, with a dry feel, for an elegant matte appearance. We chose an upcycled crepe cady at Nona Source: it is made of 100% viscose and was woven in Italy. Viscose is an artificial chemical material made from wood fibers. Ideally, the viscose we would have liked to use would have been labeled to guarantee that the tree pulp used comes from PEFC, FSE or FSC certified forests. However, our viscose crepe cady remains upcycled, that is to say that we give life to dormant stocks already produced, and viscose does not contribute to micro-plastic pollution.
