This burgundy knitted crewneck of Wunderwerk is a wardrobe essential. The basic knit is made of 50% organic virgin wool and 50% organic cotton. The fit is between an regular and slim. The knit sweater has a round neck and knitted elbow patches for extra strength. This is a trendy color but good to combine when you wear the knitted sweater as a pullover with a white shirt underneath and grey chino's for casual friday or in weekends with blue jeans and sneakers.
Wunderwerk stands for the interaction of fashionable design, comfortable fit and high quality sustainable manufacture throughout the entire production and supply chain. Wunderwerk was founded in 2012 and has its headquarters in Dusseldorf Germany. Founders Tim and Heiko both have extensive experience in the fashion industry and felt fashion should be made in a more ethical and sustainable way, which made them decide to start their own label.
Sustainability is one of the most important values of the label. Respect for human, nature and animals are paramount and is carried through the entire manufacturing process. Both founders are surf- and ocean lovers and therefore the label avoids ‘’plastics’’ in the collection as far as possible.
With organic wool the entire production process – from cleaning until the dyeing of the wool – is clean. Organic wool suppliers don’t use any synthetic inputs; instead sustainable farming practices are being used. The wool is washed in organic biodegradable detergent without any use of chemicals. Lots of attention is paid to the health of the sheep as well: the use of hormones is prohibited, even as mulesing.
What makes organic cotton a better choice than conventional cotton? First of all, organic cotton doesn’t need chemical fertilizers and less water to grow. Secondly, when cotton is organically grown the land stays fertile for a much longer period of time than when conventional cotton is grown on that same field. Growing organic cotton has a positive effect on the lives, health and incomes of the farmers. And organic cotton is healthier for the wearer!
