The Journey of our Michelle Wool Cardigan

Design

For Michelle, the design journey begins with collaborating with the factory to ascertain what waste they have available. We take feedback from our customers on shape and fit, and Antoinette designed this very versatile and flattering cardigan. It embedded one of her key design philosophies: to flatter the female form.

Sustainable Circular Sourcing

By doing this, we reduce the amount of low-quality, mass-produced material that goes to landfills and create better-quality products that are designed to last.

Ethical Manufacturing

It is essential to Beira that we only work with factories that share our ethos and produce only the highest quality, luxury garments. We embrace radical transparency to address fair labour within the industry and ensure all of our employees are paid a living wage. We are delighted to work with Sun Hing Manufacturing team who share athe same ethos.
