Our materials

Our conviction: everything starts from the material! Each of our materials is sourced or co-developed to be responsible, local, comfortable on a daily basis, easy to live with and beautiful for a long time. We favor the materials closest to us, from fiber to finishing, to save miles and therefore the CO2 impact. Concretely, half of our time is reserved for quality control and continuous improvement of existing materials. Each production is like a new adventure! The other half of the time is reserved for research, development and testing of future materials to meet our next clothing projects. And all year round we often call on you in our questionnaires to confirm that once worn our materials age well.

Willie - thick organic/recycled cotton jersey - PATiNE exclusive

First production : 2017 (after 8 months of project)

Its origins : The jersey that started it all! Made up of 50% organic cotton and 50% recycled cotton, it is knitted and dyed in Portugal. GOTS certified organic yarns now come from Uganda or Tanzania to limit the km and where we can guarantee the seriousness of our partners. The recycled organic yarns come from Turkey for the plains and from Portugal for the heather gray and come from organic cotton spinning waste. It's a thick jersey, like the vintage US t-shirts that we've been finding for years, with a perfect fit and no twisting. Its slightly irregular textured feel owes its uniqueness to an exclusive process of our spinner during which the cotton residues usually rejected at the spinning stage are reintegrated into the yarn.

And what does that look like in clothes? It is currently used for Willie Cool, Willie Iconic t-shirts, Willie Tank Tops, Willie Dress, and other surprises. Made and dyed in Portugal, their manufacturing pollutes 4x less water and 1.9x less air than a classic t-shirt. In milkshake white, black coffee and heather gray they are made in regular production. And we play with series of colors and prints several times a year :)

Marty - thick organic/recycled cotton fleece - PATiNE exclusive

First production: 2018 (after 7 months of project)

Its origins: Just like Willie, it is made of 100% organic cotton, 40% of which is recycled, it is knitted and dyed in Portugal. GOTS certified organic yarns now come from Uganda or Tanzania to limit the km and where we can guarantee the seriousness of our partners. The recycled organic yarns come from Turkey for the plains and from Portugal for the heather gray and come from organic cotton spinning waste. It is very thick, a little firm. It's a soft brushed fleece inside: we call it "American fleece". Its slightly irregular textured feel owes its uniqueness to an exclusive process of our spinner during which the cotton residues usually rejected at the spinning stage are reintegrated into the yarn.

And what does that look like in clothes? We currently use it for our Marty 90 sweatshirts, Marty Oversize, Marty Hoodie and our jogging pants made in Portugal in the same workshop as the Willies. Their manufacturing pollutes 4x less water and saves 390 liters of water (or approximately one week of showering) and pollutes the air 1.9x less than a classic sweatshirt. In black coffee black, heather gray and “Planète Love” tomato red, they are made in regular production. And as for Willie we play with series of colors and prints several times a year :)

Brenda - Authentic recycled selvedge denim without stretch - PATiNE exclusive

First production: 2019 (after 18 months of project)

Its origins: Brenda is a superb Italian denim fabric without stretch woven on old "selvedge" type machines: the width of the fabric is narrow, we recognize the selvedge by the edges finished in weaving with white selvedges. Even more unique, it does not contain new cotton since it is made up of 50% recycled cotton from waste collected at the denim yarn stage, and 50% REFIBRA™ (a yarn mixing recycled cotton and lyocell, fiber made from Eucalyptus trees, uses little water and is 100% biodegradable). For washing, all processes have been selected to avoid pollution and save water, whether it is indigo dyeing on the surface and without toxic solvents or ozone washing.

And what does that look like in clothes? We use it for our 2 cuts of jeans, the Brenda Curvy and the Brenda Slim, made and washed in 3 blues in Portugal. Their manufacturing pollutes 3x less water and saves 8,460 liters of water, or 50 bathtubs, and pollutes 2x less air than classic jeans. We launch 3 productions per year, in the form of pre-orders. We also developed shorts so that Brenda can accompany you all year round, bootcut jeans and overalls.

Dustin - Organic cotton velvet

First production: 2019 (after 5 months of research)

Its origins: Our pretty caramel velvet, heavy weight for men (we find it prettier than the very fine and soft velvets often reserved for women's pants) is woven in 100% organic cotton and dyed in Germany with weft threads from India and warp threads from Turkey. The next step will be to find European organic cotton to reduce CO2 emissions even further!

And what does that look like in clothes? We use it for the Dustin pants made in Portugal with the same cut as the Brenda Curvy jeans. We currently do 1 production per year. Their manufacturing pollutes 2.9x less water and saves 4900 liters of water, or 31 bathtubs, and pollutes 1.8x less air than classic velvet.

How to take care of it ? It can be washed inside out at 30 degrees (ideal program to save energy but also to make the fibers last longer!). It does not need to be ironed and will mark naturally at crease areas. For drying, we recommend that you avoid the tumble dryer which breaks the fiber of the clothes and which consumes a lot of energy. Choose the clothes dryer, a hanger or even a chair!

Tony - Organic/recycled cotton poplin and recycled polyester fabric - exclusive PATiNE finish

First production: 2020 (after 12 months of project)

Its origins: Neither too thick nor too light, with character but not rigid or transparent. It is composed of 59% GOTS certified organic cotton (an Indian combed warp yarn) and 41% recycled yarn from clothing residue (23% recycled polyester and 18% recycled cotton for a Spanish weft yarn). The next step will be to find European organic cotton to further reduce CO2 emissions. It is woven in France by Les Tissages de Charlieux (workshop committed to sustainable development near Lyon) who developed an exclusive finishing for PATiNE giving the canvas its slightly embossed appearance. Tony is therefore a thick but not heavy fabric, with 150 grams per m2, and a firm feel like a nice hotel duvet, which remains pretty even a little wrinkled!

And what does that look like in clothes? We use it for our Tony shirts (inspired by 80s sportswear shirts), our boxer shorts and our shirts made in Portugal in a workshop of 30 seamstresses specializing in shirts for a sublime level of finish. Their manufacturing pollutes 3x less water and saves 1200 liters of water, or 7.5 bathtubs, and pollutes 1.7x less air than a classic shirt. We launch several productions per year, in the form of pre-orders.

Anita - Bio-acetate

First production: 2019

Its origins: Inspired by plastic pacifiers and Agatha teddy bears from the 90s, we were looking for a material with a plastic look but in a noble and more ecological version: Anita is a bio acetate made in Italy from natural components only (wood cellulose and cotton) and without polluting plasticizers (natural corn-based plasticizer guaranteed phthalate-free).

And what about accessories? Usually used for glasses, we use our acetate for our Creoles, our Baby Creoles and our barrettes , available in several colors, and entirely manufactured locally in Ain, at the foot of the Jura mountains, in Oyonnax.

How to take care of it ? It is solid and resistant to shocks but remember to protect your curls from scratches when you are not wearing them. You should also avoid running them under water to avoid damaging the metal rod.

Jessie - 100% organic denim without stretch

First production: 2021 (after 12 months of development)

Its origins: After our very thick Brenda canvas for our jeans and shorts, we were looking for a slightly lighter version for an overshirt. 12 months of research for robust denim fabric (350 grams m2) but flexible enough to be worn as a shirt. In terms of composition, its canvas is made of GOTS certified Indian organic cotton, spun and woven in Italy. We continue to work with two great partners: our denim weaver in Italy for our canvas, and the denim workshop in Portugal. For washing, all processes have been selected to avoid pollution and save water, whether it is indigo dyeing on the surface and without toxic solvents or ozone washing.

And what does that look like in clothes? It comes in two washes, medium and light, for our Jessie (over)shirts . The cut is adapted from that of our Tony shirts, the pattern has been slightly revised to adapt it to the canvas and it is available for pre-order.

Donna - 100% vegetable, organic and elastane-free stretch denim - PATiNE exclusive

 

First production: 2022 (after 18 months of development)

His origins : Our version of black stretch jeans without elastane! Donna is made of 96% GOTS organic cotton and 4% Coreva™.

Coreva is an innovation developed by our denim partner (the same as for Brenda jeans), it is the very first 100% biodegradable and compostable stretch technology in the world. Coreva™ stretch yarn is made from organic cotton wrapped around a core of GOTS-certified natural gum, itself extracted from trees found in Thailand and Malaysia. Its manufacturing process uses 100% renewable energy and does not involve any chemical components dangerous to the environment or health. Once manufactured, Coreva™ stretch denim fabric has the same elastic properties as elastane but does not contain any plastic material and above all, it is 100% biodegradable and compostable. As with our Brenda jeans, we work with dyes that do not release toxic materials via a surface vaporization process. The pigment used is also innovative since it remains on the surface of the yarn, which means that less water and energy are used during manufacturing. And the washing is done with ozone.

And what does that look like in clothes? Our Donna jeans are high-waisted and slightly fitted, without being tight. Which lengthens the leg and ends with a slight flare effect. And ultra comfortable! We are thinking about a future overshirt, maybe a skirt…

Taffy - 100% recycled polyester taffeta

 

First production: 2022 (after one year of development)

Its origins: We wanted a prom dress with Patine sauce, that is to say conscious, which could be easily carried over and available as desired. So Taffy is a 100% recycled Italian (polyester) taffeta, washable in the washing machine at 40°. The pieces are made in Portugal, in the same place as Tony's shirts. The buttons on the top, shirt and long skirt are in corozo. It is a material from the fruit of the palm tree and its harvest does not contribute to deforestation because only the fruits that have already fallen are collected, the buttons are therefore biodegradable! The waste from the production of corozo buttons can also be used as fuel. Made in Italy.

And what does that look like in clothes? A three-piece "party dress" to assemble as you please to compose your party or stroll outfit: the sleeveless top inspired by the men's jacket vest, the oversized shirt with its buttons at the front and back and the long gathered skirt for a maximum volume (with pockets!). Each piece comes in black, lilac and lime green. The manufacturing of this capsule pollutes 2 times less water and emits 1.6 times less CO2 than a standard taffeta set.

Once worn, the colors and materials will evolve and acquire a patina over time, we can't wait to see what they will look like in 10 years!
