Product & Materials
At Rhea, knitwear is our style lifeline, allowing a creative space for conscious development centered around sustainable practices.
Stemming from a deep respect and know-how towards the product and the people working to produce it, our values of traceable wool and sustainable yarns are at the forefront of our brand. This is why we take our knitwear seriously from Yarn to You.
Merino wool is our shining star and main ingredient for Rhea, with an incredibly impressive resume of technical qualities. Merino wool is a naturally soft, breathable, biodegradable, renewable, wrinkle resident, water repellant, naturally resilient, and all importantly extremely attractive product on the eye, as this is still fashion after all.
By choosing NATIVA™️ traceable Merino and being open about our ambitions of a transparent supply chain, we hope to open the marketplace up for more of the industry to move toward this direction. It’s a work in progress and we will continue to improve and innovate our product.
The divine mother of all fabrics, TENCEL™ Lyocell is a regenerated cellulose fibre with properties almost identical to cotton, without the same environmental impact. Using at least 5 times less land than cotton and 80% less water.
TENCEL™ production is done without the use of pesticides or insecticides and is certified by the European eco-label Oeko Tex 100 as containing low levels of manufacturing chemicals and byproducts, which make its natural properties of high fibre tenacity, efficient moisture management, and gentleness to the skin all the more enjoyable to wear and work with.
The magic marriage of Merino & Tencel™ Lyocell
Their two worlds collided to create a dream yarn. It all starts with the fibre, it's the 1st building block to fashion and by using a blend of Merino & Tencel in our Summer 22 collection we proudly bring you an ideal summer composition with a transparent and sustainable origin.
