ORGANIC
COTTON

The fabric has the same quality as conventional cotton but with lower impact. Grown from non-GMO seeds, uses no pesticides, insecticides, or fertilizers. Farmers use ancestral methods that avoid the erosion of the soil such as crop rotation, mixed farming, or no-till farming. All our Organic Cotton is GOTS Certified, the leading worldwide entity that regulates the supply chain.

RECYCLED
COTTON

Recycled Cotton can be defined as converting cotton fabric into a fiber that can be reused in textile products. Textile recycling is generated from two primary sources: Pre-consumer: scraps created by yarn and fabric by-products; Post-consumer: garments, upholstery, towels, household items. The largest volume of recycled cotton sources is produced through pre-consumer waste.

SINGLE
JERSEY

Structured and dense 180 GSM single jersey with just the right weight to make every Classic and Longsleeve T-Shirt the best T-Shirts we have ever worn for the best price we have ever seen. 100% organic cotton. 100% produced in Portugal within our partner Valerius Group facilities. Our organic cotton is GOTS Certified.

SUPIMA
COTTON

Extra-fine and luxury - yet durable - 160 GSM jersey made with yarns from American SUPIMA Cotton farms. Representing less than 1% of cotton grown in the world, this extra-long staple fiber reinforces cotton its premium properties: strength, softness, and color retention.

PIQUÉ
POLO

Originated in England in the 18th century. Popularized by Jean René Lacoste. Immortalized, who knows, by ISTO., the Piqué fabric is a textured fabric knit with a pattern like a waffle. Traditionally used for high-end or sporty Polos. The medium-weight organic cotton ensures breathability, durability, and a remarkable degree of softness.

HEAVYWEIGHT
JERSEY

Crafted from 100% extra-fine combed cotton following the traditional French Terry construction. A heavyweight jersey is always associated with ivy league - this time brushed on the inside to keep you comfortable and warm. Luxury fleecier finishing for an extra soft touch.

LOOPBACK
FLEECE

Loopback Fleece is a quite similar material to French Terry, which is knitted in loops on one side and soft piles of yarn on the other. The name comes from 'Loopwheel', the traditional knitting machine historically used to knit the fabric. This has diagonal loops for added breathability, keeping the same softness & stretchiness. Comfortability for loungewear.

OXFORD
CLOTH

Famous for being used in Universities like Oxford or Cambridge in the 19th century, the Oxford Cloth is also famous for its basketweave structure made by weaving multiple yarns together and passing them over one another in vertical and horizontal directions. Heavy 175 g/sqm oxford cloth that manages to feel light and breathable when worn

LINEN

Linen is a natural fiber that stems from the flax plant. It uses considerably fewer resources than cotton or polyester (such as water, energy, pesticides, insecticides, fertilizers).Flax can grow in poor soil which is not used for food production. In some cases, it can even rehabilitate polluted soil. Flax plants also have a high rate of carbon absorption. For these reasons, we consider linen to be a sustainable material, even when it is not organically grown.

CHAMBRAY

Originated in France (1500's), specifically in "Cambrai", Chambray is a cotton plain-weave fabric made with a dyed warp yarn and a white filling yarn and typically comes in light blue. Sometimes confused with denim, chambray is lighter and is woven differently; slightly more airy and chilled for warmer days. Of course, ours is Organic Cotton and GOTS Certified.

HEAVYWEIGHT
FLANNEL

Organic cotton: check. No-gimmicks design: check. Elegant buttons: check. 100% made in Portugal: always. Our Flannel has a strong and dense structure that makes this proprietary 190 GSM organic cotton feel like you’re being hugged by a bear (in a cozy, warm embrace type of way).

LIGHTWEIGHT
FLANNEL

A lighter version of our Heavyweight Flannel, this Cotton Flannel fabric comes with an amazing brushing (thank you, Somelos) that just gets better over time. A modern take that became uniform for most of us, the Lightweight Flannel fabric is incredibly comfortable and cozy due to its soft fibers and loose weave (both plain and twill).

COTTON
CASHMERE

Soft. Cozy. Warm. Fancy. Preppy. This 100% Portuguese grey melange flannel is made with a high percentage of organic cotton and a smaller one of cashmere - specifically to allow a light flannel like this to be warmer without being very dense. A sophisticated blend that makes this fabric a wardrobe staple ideal for every autumn and winter.

COTTON /
LINEN FLANNEL

This fabric brings us the best of - not 2 but 3 - Worlds: organic cotton flannel for a warmer feeling; linen for a more breathable fabric; and one of the most classic and fich checked design we know. Often upd as a classic dine-out shirt or overshirt, the truth is it can also be used as pyjamas. A perfect one, we'd say.

DENIM

Denim is a super strong cotton twill weave that got quite famous for being used in Blue Jeans. Traditionally a not-so-clean product given the amount of water it consumes, we try to overcome that issue by working with two top-notch Denim factories (Candiani - Italy - Troficolor in Portugal). We have also decided to work with 100% organic cotton denim until now (no elastane), but as I'm writing this our Production Team is developing a new pair of Jeans that combines Organic Cotton with post-consumer Recycled Cotton.
Fun fact we've read online: "Denim was first produced in the city of Nîmes in France, and was originally called the serge de Nîmes. The word denim is an English colloquialism of the French term: de nim.”

COTTON
KNIT

Produced in Portugal with an organic cotton GOTS yarn spun in Italy, our Cotton Knits are everything you want for your everyday comfort. Soft, breathable and with just the right heft. Because of the fineness of its yarns, make sure you wash it proporly, ideally hand wash cold - it helps strengthening the yarns. All our Knits come with a 1x1 rib collar and raglan sleeves.

MERINO
WOOL

Merino wool is a natural fiber that is environmentally friendly, biodegradable, and an excellent thermoregulator. Naturally lighter and softer than any other wool, merino wool is easy to wear next to the skin and keeps your body at a comfortable temperature in any weather conditions. Through a process known as “absorption”, the fabric absorbs humidity and retains heat when temperatures are cold and humid. Conversely, when it’s hot, the wool uses the “evaporation” process to release humidity, making the body feel cool. As a natural fiber, merino wool will break down to its natural base elements and therefore not pollute the oceans and waterways when being washed or discarded.We only use mulesing-free merino wool. Mulesing is a practice in which skin is removed from the rear of the Merino sheep - without anesthetization - in order to prevent flies from laying their larvae on the sheep. No animal should go through this gruesome action.

CHINO
CLOTH

A true essential on every wardrobe for being simple, comfortable, durable, and, well, 100% (organic) cotton, the Chino fabric was developed in the 19th century for British and French military uniforms. Also known as "khaki's", our Chino Cloth is weaved in Portugal with a mid-to-high weight (340 g/sqm).

BABY
CORDUROY

Corduroy is a fabric with evenly spaced vertical rows of soft piles. These rows are arranged in a distinct pattern called a “cord” or a “wale.” Made from a soft yet substantial 14 wale organic cotton corduroy, this mid-weight fabric is designed to be worn all year long. We've decided to use it on our Corduroy Shorts as we believe this style can a true companion for any occasion: summer beach, spring party, or out for an autumn run.

RIPSTOP
COTTON

Cotton Ripstop is known for its uniquely pronounced boxed or diamond-shaped patterns woven into the fabric. All Ripstop Fabrics are crafted with double warp and weft threads woven into a crosshatch pattern which makes them quite resistant to tearing and ripping. It is usually denser and heavier than most cotton materials. As fans of daily usability and everyday essentials, how not to fall in love with a fabric that is used as uniform in many cases and considered durable apparel? Try it for yourself.

COTTON
TWILL

Twill, one of the three major types of textile weaves, is a popular and quite versatile fabric weave well known for its diagonal rib pattern. Because the weft thread (the horizontal thread) is woven over one or more warp threads (the vertical thread held taught on a loom) and then under one or more warp threads, it creates the diagonal pattern - which is often darker in the front side.
Indisputably one of the most durable fabrics ever made, you can asure that just by looking to work clothing: outdoor and industrial.

We've used Cotton Twill in the following products so far: Chinos, Work Jacket, Car Coat, Shorts

BUREL
WOOL

STRIPED
JERSEY

Heavyweight striped jersey, smooth with a slight single rib knit, while the backside of jersey is piled with loops. Super soft and slightly stretchy 100% organic cotton GOTS fabric that is made using one set of needles. In a nutshell: comfort fabric that can be worn all year long and that is a long-time classic (remember Coco Chanel?). Enjoy your Breton!
