The Crochet Top's story begins in Estonia, where the 100% upcycled textile used to create this piece is initially sourced. Every inch of material used is carefully selected by Formés’ team members from second-hand shops throughout Estonia, to ensure the quality of the material. When sourcing materials, Formés treats the process like a hunt, never knowing where their next pieces live. Once the material is sourced, it is brought to their studio in Narva where the garment will be made. The entire process is completed in Estonia. The piece is made with a careful waste-focused design and meticulous attention to detail. Formés always designs with the intention of minimizing impact on nature, using 100 percent deadstock and upcycled materials for all pieces. Manufacturing locally brings complete transparency, while enabling the brand to bring jobs into the community and ensure that a living wage is paid to all employees. Once completed, the top is packaged in a biodegradable bag and transported to a shipment center headed straight to you. This top has lived in 1 country, traveled hundreds of miles, and provided a new life to discarded materials, to earn a permanent spot in your wardrobe. We hope you love this top and wear it with pride, knowing that you are embodying fashion and choosing to better the planet with your conscious shopping choice.
