What we're made of

Quality and craftsmanship is at the heart of Jigsaw’s sourcing and materials, with sustainability underpinning Jigsaw’s design ethos now more than ever. We continue to work with longstanding suppliers from around the world who source the finest quality fabrics and adhere to the highest ethical standards.

We strive to make good choices, so where possible, select natural , sustainable raw materials or recycled fibres. This approach means we are using sustainable yarns and giving new life to old materials wherever possible. Even our garment labels are made of recycled yarns.

TRACEABLE CASHMERE

Our 100% Cashmere styles are made from fibre traceable to the region, Otog Banner, inner Mongolia. We have partnered with Consinee to provide us with yarn lots that are fully traceable and in line with the Good Cashmere Standard; all farms comply with the highest animal welfare and environmental practices to provide transparency throughout the supply chain.

All ZQ™ Merino farms are regularly audited to review animal welfare and fair-trade principles.

Organic Cotton

We are gradually changing most of our cotton to organic. Our aim is to reduce the impact on the environment by decreasing the use of harmful pesticides and encouraging careful treatment of the soil and conservation of water. Where we are not able to use organic cotton, we choose to partner with suppliers who use cotton from more sustainable sources.
