Provenance You Can Believe In >> Izzy Lane Wool


I've mentioned before that I love the trend going on towards consuming locally-grown foods, companies supporting local economies, etc., and here's a company that takes these philosophies very seriously:


 
Izzy Lane in Britain saves sheep that are destined for the slaughterhouse for being lame, missing a pregnancy, or being male, and puts them to use for their wool instead.  Then, the cloth is woven in a nearby ancient mill by neighboring craftsmen.  Does that make you love it or what?

  

Unfortunately, their methods of production are more endearing than their designs, and the sweater above was really the only piece I really liked!  Maybe they need to collaborate with someone else, like Apolis Activism does, to get a good designer in there.  They've already got all other pieces in place!  Still, thought the company was worth sharing...
