A true story
AS WE GROW is an Icelandic design company, which executes “slow fashion”. No mass production is used and only eco-friendly raw materials are chosen in the production of each garment. The pieces are simple yet luxurious and designed to grow with the child.
Our goal is to encourage people to buy fewer and better things, to stay warm and look good with less, to take positive action to reduce clothing waste and ensure responsible consumption and production.
When we say better things, we mean things that are mindful of the environment and the community. From the beginning, we have believed in designing products that offer real value to their users. This means, offering garments that last over generations, as well as always being mindful of the environment and the community. Each AS WE GROW piece is fair trade for the benefit of all people.
We want you to enjoy your AS WE GROW garment for as long as possible. Given a little care, a piece of quality garment can last for generations.
Before you soak your AS WE GROW garments in water you should make sure you really do need to wash it. Alpaca and wool are naturally self-cleaning materials that often just need to be aired out. Think it through, a fresh breeze might do!
Pima and knit cottons may be washed and dried, but we recommend using low temperatures, 30-40°C. Use a gentle machine cycle and a mild detergent to protect the fibres. Feel free to tumble-dry your linen or cotton as long as you stick to low temperatures, but we recommend line drying to prevent shrinkage. Remove from the dryer when still slightly damp to avoid the linen becoming stiff, and hang or lie flat to finish off the drying process. If you need to iron, iron while the fabric is still damp. Use a medium-hot iron on the steam setting.
We use natural, renewable, sustainable materials that emphasize conservation and lead to environmentally sound products. Our alpaca wool is a fiber that does not come at the expense of the environment. Every stage of our production is ethical, which is very important to us.
