As individual consumers, the single best thing we can do for our planet is to keep our garments in use longer.
We live in a culture where replacement is king. It's often easier and cheaper to buy something new than repairing. This creates a society of consumers, not owners.
Owners take responsibility for their purchases, from proper cleaning to repairing, reusing and sharing. Consumers take, make and dispose. This is driving us toward ecological bankruptcy.
No matter how durable we make our knitwear, at one point there will be a need to repair. Our knits are designed to be repairable. For example, all Aymara knitwear is fully fashioned and special linking is applied to the seams.
We are now offering a repair service to extend even more the lifetime of your favourite sweater
