Eco-chic raps by Pure & Co
A wrap for every occasion
Eco friendly women’s fashion company, Pure & Co, has a line of fashionable wraps that I thought would be of interest to all women. The wraps are a great accessory because they are a fit for any style, season and outfit. There is also a great story behind the Pure & Co brand as each wrap is handknitted in eco friendly facilities and pollution free dye house.
Pure & Co’s line of eco-chic wraps are great for the office or the weekend. These wraps are versatile and fun allowing consumers to entirely change their look by simply re buttoning the wrap. Everyone can use that “for every occasion” piece and what’s more is that Pure & Co stands out as an eco-friendly company that is truly is making a global difference in its quest to adhere to fair trade and sustainable principles.

About the company
Pure HANDKNIT has been celebrating life’s rich craft of hand knitting every season since our first collection in 1998. We’re truly passionate about knitwear. They individually knit each piece by hand with skill and patience. Designs are created and crafted in 100% Cotton. Whimsical shell, oversized coconut, hand-punched tin and exclusive ceramic buttons are distinctive to our designs.
At the heart of the Pure HANDKNIT brand are over 4500 women knitters. Choosing to partnership with women knitters in Chiang Mai, Thailand offers these dedicated women the opportunity to continue with this rich tradition. Ethical work standards are fundamental and at the forefront of our management strategy. All of their staff has company paid health care including maternity leave. Education is also a focus of theirs. They offer paid continuing education which includes free English classes for all staff, their family and friends. Currently they have several staff completing their master’s degree. Throughout the year any excess yarn is donated to several non-governmental organizations and women’s groups where it is used in income generating projects.
With the environment on their minds, each season they are looking to incorporate sustainable practices into the collection. Currently, both the Canadian head office and their Chiang Mai facility use solar power to heat domestic hot water. Extra insulation has also been installed into the buildings to keep the staff cool in Thailand and warm in Canada. All paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and metal are recycled. At their warehouse in Chiang Mai, dozens of trees have been planted for shade and green spaces have been created for their staff to enjoy and to offset their carbon foot print.
Commitment and dedication makes each Pure HANDKNIT product a work of art.
