The journey of your sweater
Le Pirol styles are Made in Denmark, Danish manufactured knitwear, knitted and sewn in the small town of Isenvad near Herning.
And all styles from the classic Breton-striped sailor shirt to the fisherman cap and the dresses, are all created, based on the brand's three basic principles: Local production, organic wool / cotton and timeless design.
We believe, there is a good story behind the fact that we still have an industry in Denmark, that produces fantastic crafts and we are happy and proud that we can manufacture our sustainable knitwear at home.
And we strive to be a leader in sustainable and locally produced organic knitwear, where the sustainable aspect lies both in the local production, but also in that fact that, Le Pirol's styles are made to last for a long time, so we can contribute to to protect the environment.
In addition, Le Pirol loves style and sustainable fashion and our vision is to minimize the imprint we make on our environment. We do this, among other things, by utilizing all our by-products and by continuously introducing new styles, rather than creating entire collections every season.
Organic wool and cotton
The fabric used to produce clothing also plays a big part, when it comes to sustainability and longlasting design - and therefore Le Pirol has chosen that all styles are manufactured in eco-certified merino wool from Italy and organic cotton from Trifitrofa in Portugal.
The organic Merino wool we use, is recyclable and biodegradable, making it the perfect choice for you, who are looking for a sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle.
Merino wool comes from South American Merino sheep, living on an organic farm. After the sheep's wool has been cut, it is shipped to Italy, where the wool is processed and dyed, and then sent to Denmark.
In the northern part of Denmark, in the small town of Isenvad, just outside Herning, the organic Merino wool and the organic cotton from Trifitrofa in Portugal are received and the creation of Le Pirol's knitted styles can begin.
The actual production of clothes takes place by four employees at the sewing workshop in Isenvad, and to make the supply chain as short as possible, Morten Underbjerg only sends his products from the online store. Le Pirols styles are Made in Denmark, Danish-produced knitwear, which is knitted and sewn in the small town of Isenvad near Herning.
We buy yarns that are GOTS certified, but since our production is less than 10,000 units a year, it is too big a cost to get the Danish joint certified and since we are a small company, it is too big a cost. However, Danish legislation is also far above the requirements set by GOTS and therefore we see it as a bit superfluous to be certified when we have Danish production.
