Know your maker
Jo Gordon is a modern luxury knitwear brand based in the United Kingdom. Utilising Scotlands long history of spinning and knitting wool her scarves are made by small-scale manufacturers committed to tradition and craftsmanship.
"Colour is also an important ingredient in my work" says Jo "I love the flexibility that colour gives. It can reinvent something familiar and I often use complex colour and pattern on simple forms to dramatically change context and mood. It can be cool, sophisticated, sombre or frivolous: It can be reminiscent or it can be unfamiliar".
Made from Australian lambswool fibre, the farms where the wool is sourced are now certified by the Responsible Wool Standard. The Responsible Wool Standard addresses the welfare of the sheep and the land they graze on. The practice of mulesing is not used.
The dyes & chemicals used at the mill, on the banks of Loch Leven in Scotland, are 98% GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), they will be 100% by next year. These organic dyes minimise damage to fibres and reduces waste produced. Thanks to this, water used is able to be successfully cleaned and returned to the loch, a world-renowned RSPB nature reserve. The highest levels of compliance are followed, monitored by SEPA (Scottish Environment Protection Agency). This enables the brown trout, pink-footed geese and 35,000 wintering birds to thrive.
