Farewell to Coimbra

She kept climbing up the hill. Like the water, she found her own way through this medieval town. All of a sudden, thunderstorms started as if the rain wanted to push her back downwards the cobblestone paved slopes. She leaned with her body on a window when she heard a Portuguese guitar playing from the inside. Very few things had such a fascinating tone on earth. She had listened to many wistful Fados sang by women from Lisbon, but nowhere else in Portugal had she listened such a proud and gentle appeal to faith. For centuries, Coimbra Fados were composed and performed solely by Coimbra college men wearing their long black capes. She sat on the pavement just so. Line by line, she whispered her emotions into the wrinkles forming on her clothes. Then the song said: 'Coimbra has more charm, when it's time to say goodbye.'  


Tırmandıkça tırmandı. Ortaçağdan kalma kasabanın içerisinde su gibi buluyordu insan yolunu. Birden bastırdı yağmur, arnavut kaldırımı yokuşlardan gerisin geri sürüklemek istercesine O'nu. Bir cam kenarına dayandı. Portekiz gitarının nakış gibi işlediği şarkı çalındı içeriden kulağına. Dünyada çok az ses bu kadar büyüleyici bir tınıya sahipti. Nice iç yakan Fado'lar dinlemişti Lizbon'lu kadınlardan; ancak Portekiz'in başka hiçbir yerinde böyle mağrur ve yumuşak bir yakarış duymamıştı alınyazısına. Coimbra fadosu, yüzyıllardır sadece Coimbra Üniversiteli erkekler tarafından bestelenir ve yine onlar tarafından kara cüppeleri ile söylenebilirdi. Öylece oturdu kaldırıma ve hayal alemini çizgi çizgi kıyafetlerine işledi. Şarkı şöyle diyordu: 'Coimbra daha büyülü, veda zamanı geldiğinde'

Farewell to Coimbra Linen Skort

Our linen is one of the most eco-friendly fabrics

Carbon neutral fabric production

From fiber to fabric: 100% renewable energy is used for our fabric manufacturing (a mix
of solar & wind energy)

Our fabric manufacturing process is carbon neutral which accounts for
58% less carbon footprint compared to conventional linen fabric manufacturing*, 63% less carbon footprint compared to industry average value chain.

Very limited use of water & chemicals

From flax to fiber: Our linen is cultivated in the region between Northern France and Amsterdam. In contrary to many other natural fibers, flax plant needs no additional irrigation and only grows with rain water. Flax plant needs much less fertilizers and pesticides compared to cotton.

During our linen fabrics’ manufacturing, only natural dew retting practices are adopted for separating fibers from stems whereas chemical retting or water
retting are also used in the industry to speed up the process resulting harmful impact such as water pollution. Natural dew does not use any additional energy, water or chemicals and purely rely on natural decomposition on the soil.

Certified for excellence

Our fabrics are certified Belgian Linen & Masters of Linen is a registered mark and sign of excellence for linen 100% Made in EUROPE, from field to yarn to fabric.

Our linens and mother of pearl shells are certified Oeko-tex, which ensure no harmful ingredients are
used in manufacturing practice.

Our supply chain is simple, traceable and fair

Traceability of our raw materials throughout the supply chain is an important metric to evaluate our environmental impact.

Our linen fabrics are cultivated and manufactured within 300 km radius in Belgium, whereas our mother of pearl shell buttons are harvested and manufactured in Madagascar. Our raw materials are shipped directly to Istanbul where our garment production takes place. This operation is repeated twice a year via air freight. Through Go Green Climate program of our freight partner, we have recently started offsetting our transportation-related carbon emissions.

All of our suppliers and our garment manufacturer are aligned with fair labor standards set by ILO and local governments.
