This dark grey handknitted cardigan of Studio Jux is made of 100% organic wool. It has a chunky knit style and a regular fit. The cardigan has a v-neck and large buttons. Also it has two external pockets on the front of the garment.
This rough cardigan is warm and stylish. Style t with a checked shirt underneath and some good jeans or chino's for a rugged and casual look. But works really well with just a simple t-shirt.
Studio JUX is a Dutch fashion label from Amsterdam. Founders Jitske and Carlien started their label Studio JUX in 2008 because they believe fashion should be fun and enjoyable for everyone; for the designers, the people working in factories and everyone wearing and using the products. Their name embodies this; ‘JUX’ literally means ‘fun’ or ‘having a laugh’ in German.
The Studio JUX collection is made in their own factory, women empowerment projects and social enterprises that are based in Kathmandu, Nepal. This means the label can ensure safe and healthy working conditions for their employees, maximise their social impact and minimise environmental impact at the same time. This also ensures that every single piece is handmade with love and dedication.
The handshake inside each Studio JUX garment connects you to the tailor who made it. All of their Nepali employees are rockstars, who they continually support. Being the owner of the factory, the label ensures that a studio JUX supervisor is present at the factory to guide and support the team.
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.
