Boiled wool

When we mention boiled woolwe love to talk about the transformation of the fabric. Once knitted, the wool is agitatedwith hot water in a process called fullingwhich dates back to antiquity and calls for genuine know-how.

Boiled wool offers numerous advantages; the fabrictighter and more dense, is warmersofter, and more supple, but alsomore waterproof. Comfortable to wear, boiled wool garments are therefore more insulatingFrom a natural fibre createdusing only sheep’s fleecewool is turned into a noble material.

The corozo buttons 

Spanish term for vegetable ivory, corozo or tagua is the inner pulpit of the ivory palm fruit - called albumen - native to the Amazon rainforest. It can be carvedturned and polished as easily as ivory.

The discovery of the corozo dates back to 1798 when Spanish explorers Hipólito Ruiz López and José Antonio Pavón set out to explore the Peruvian jungle in the upper Amazon. They discovered that the first to use the palm tree to makejewellery and objects were the Quechuas Indians.

The sailors also worked the corozo and made small boxes and snuff boxes out of it. In 1865, a steamboat left Esmeraldas in Ecuador for Hamburg and took on board a cargo of tagua. The Germans then discovered vegetable ivory and beganto make buttons and small ornamental objects such as thimbles and jewellery.
