Don't worry. Navygrey will always be about knitwear. It's our first love.
But sometimes, we can feel that we're after something a little crisper. Just as comfortable and relaxed of course but, well, less woolly.
There’s a faded Kodak print of my mother, holding our new puppy. It’s 1987. She’s wearing dark denim jeans with a faded sweatshirt, French-tucked in. She lived in that piece, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. The smoothness of the cotton, the fit of the cuff. The scent of mum.
And that is where our journey began. Like everything at Navygrey, it started with a feeling. That feeling of ease, family, of home.
This is what has led us to now.
A first edition, that has taken more than 18 months to perfect. Just 300 pieces created.
It's in the details
Created from 100% certified organic cotton, (including the neck and care labels), weighing in at a healthy 415 grams.
Knitted, dyed, made, and finished within a 46-mile radius in Portugal. Unbelievably, it can take more than 8,000 miles of travel to make a single sweatshirt.
Cotton and organic status can be complicated. But this is the real thing. You can read more about why certified organic cotton is better here.
