our fabrics

a zero waste approach

We started Humans & Land when we discovered just how many of the biggest fashion houses in the world leave their unused textiles to waste away in warehouses all over Italy. We reutilize these fabrics and give them a new life as timeless classics with a modern twist.  What’s more, we only make a few items at a time and use the amount of fabric we have found down to the last millimeter. Absolutely nothing is wasted. Now, that's circular fashion.


Cotton is made from the natural fibers of cotton plants. The term cotton refers to the part of the cotton plant that grows in the boil, the encasing for the fluffy cotton fibers. Cotton is spun into yarn that is then woven to create a soft, durable fabric used for gorgeous  garments.


Wool is a type of fabric derived from the hairs of various animals. While most people associate the word “wool” with sheep, there are, in fact, a variety of distinct types of wool that producers derive from animals other than sheep. Wool is known for its durability and benefits from the natural insulative effects that keep the animal that produced the hair warm throughout the winter.


Cashmere is a type of wool fabric that is made from cashmere goats and pashmina goats. Cashmere is a natural fiber known for its extremely soft feel and great insulation. Cashmere is significantly warmer and lighter than sheep’s wool. 


Silk is a natural fiber produced by the silkworm and is known for its shine and softness as a material. It is an incredibly durable and strong material with a beautiful drape and sheen. Silk is often used for formal attire but it is amazing every day on everything you love.


Satin is one of the three major textile weaves. Satin weave creates an elastic, shiny, soft fabric with a beautiful drape. Satin fabric is characterized by a soft, lustrous surface on one side, with a duller surface on the other side. A result of the satin weaving technique.


Linen is an extremely strong, lightweight fabric made from the flax plant. It’s an incredibly absorbent and breathable fabric, which makes it ideal for summer clothing, as the lightweight qualities allow air to pass through and moderate the body temperature.


Viscose is a semi-synthetic type of rayon fabric made from wood pulp and feels like silk. Viscose is a versatile fabric used for everything from blouses to dresses to jackets.


Jersey is a soft stretchy, knit fabric made from cotton, cotton blends, and synthetic fibers. The fabric is usually light-to-medium weight and we use it in some of our most comfortable pieces.

RECYCLED polyester

Polyester doesn’t start as a sustainable product but once it becomes deadstock and gets reused it’s considered an important fabric in the sustainable landscape. Polyester fabric is characterized by its durable nature and Polyester blends are also very popular as the durable fiber can add strength to another fabric, while the other fabric makes polyester more breathable.
