Cotton is one of the most widely cultivated materials globally, so it is naturally the most commonly used natural fiber. At Saint James, we use it in our Breton Striped Shirts, but also some sweaters, T-shirts, polo shirts, shirts, pants, and dresses. A range of our cotton products are GOTS certified (Global Organic Textile Standard). In the long term, the goal is to extend this certification to most of our cotton pieces.
Wool is SAINT JAMES hallmark: we knit exclusively pure new wool, in other words, wool directly obtained from the shearing of living sheep. Of natural origin, totally recyclable and biodegradable, the wool is at the height of fashion.
In 2020, SAINT JAMES joined the French collective Tricolor to promote the wool industry in France.
When a pure new wool garment is wrinkled, just lay it out in the bathroom. Ambient humidity smooths out wool very quickly.
