The CAPLDN’s eco fashion: sustainability and creativity united in a series of limited-edition collections.

The CAPLDN’s eco fashion: sustainability and creativity united in a series of limited-edition collections.

We tried the CAPLDN t-shirts, appreciating their minimal design and the geometric shapes of the prints, combined with a completely sustainable philosophy.
Opening our package, we immediately perceived the quality of organic cotton which is always particularly soft and pleasant to the touch. But the sustainability of the product is not limited to organic cotton, in fact there are many elements that make CAPLDN’s fashion a truly sustainable and ethical proposal.
The t-shirts are certified Fair Wear Foundation, non-profit which aims to improve conditions for workers in the fashion sector. They are also climate-neutral, produced using solar and wind energy, and printed with a water-based ink, 100% free of solvents and other toxic substances.

Even the packaging is sustainable: the two t-shirts arrived in a 75% recycled cardboard box. On the box, the phrase “Fold your dreams – bring them to life” heralds the theme of the tees and the “A” of the CAPLDN logo has been replaced by an illustration of an origami. We really like the design of the packaging: simple, but impactful, built only from self-assembling interlocking cardboard, without the use of glues or other superfluous elements.

We now come to the topic of the t-shirts, the origami! The t-shirts are available in 5 prints with different origami: a swan, a parrot, an elephant, a rabbit and a cat. The collection is called “PAPER DREAMS” and represented the debut of the London brand. The Japanese art of origami, capable of transforming a simple piece of paper into real sculptures, inspired the brand in creating the geometric shapes of the animals: nothing is fixed and everything is transformed. The brand urges you to turn your dreams into reality, just as a simple sheet can become a beautiful swan.
The t-shirts have a comfortable fit and the sleeves have been sewn with a pretty turn-up. Organic cotton gives a soft touch.

What would have we liked even more? The shirts folded and inserted inside the pack in the shape of an origami, maybe something simple not to take up too much space. Or we would have liked to find the instructions to create the origami on the shirt!

We are fully satisfied with the brand’s products, their ethical philosophy and their sustainability. We just have to wait impatiently for the future limited edition collections that CAPLDN will create!
