Babaà

For jumpers with the most outstanding eco credentials look no further than Babaà. Makers of beautiful cardigans and jumpers, this Spanish brand has turned into the place to shop sustainable knitwear.

Every part of the manufacturing process uses local family run businesses such as their factory, which is based in Barcelona. It is owned and operated by Josep, a second-generation knitter. Originally the factory was founded in the 1980s by Josep’s father. Each Babaà piece is knitted using the very best Japanese knitting machines and then hand assembled by a collective of women.

Even before the wool arrives at the factory the sheep have enjoyed a wonderful life of nomadism moving freely between summer and winter pastures. Baaba also uses eco-friendly ways to dye all garments utilising a technique that uses 60% less water than the industry standard and involves no bleaching and no toxic waste.
