Knokkon and MosterRosa came up with on idea of producing an ecofriendly scarf together. The fabric is beautiful fishbone fabric wiht nettle and hemp fibre whom grow with very little water.
Knokkon’s goal is to keep the carbon footprint of its products as small as possible. The materials are ecological and are sourced as close as possible. The nettle fiber (urtica dioica) used in the scarf is ecologically and ethically cultivated in Germany. The fibers have been removed mechanically, without water, by an innovative method. The cotton used as a binder for nettle fiber is produced ethically and ecologically. The netting yarns are spun in Germany and the scarves are knitted in Finland. The nettle-cotton scarf is an ecological choice also because no plant protection products or pesticides are used in the cultivation of the materials. Nettle only needs natural rain to grow, which also saves groundwater.
Thank you for choosing an ethically produced organic product!
