Behind the Scenes

We hold our suppliers to the same standards we hold ourselves. Lanecardate chooses to use only high quality natural fibers, rigorously selected directly from farms and farms in accordance with the standards of fineness, length and sustainability expected of the finest materials. Every wool bale is meticulously checked one by one by expert eyes and hands: only the best raw materials are allowed to enter the manufacturing process.
