Materials: 100% wool, lined with 100% viscose.
Mother of Pearl describe the Rowan Coat as their 'most sustainable coat yet' - music to our ears! The wool has been cut from free-roaming sheep who graze on the Portugese mountains. The wool is spun in Portugal, and the coat is manufactured there, meaning this garment is made entirely in one country for a minimal carbon footprint!
Form meets function with the coat itself. A long fringed scarf is attached at the shoulder, and can be worn lose or draped around the neck for warmth. It's a gorgeous, modern take on a check, with pink and cobalt blue stripes interspersed on a tan base. A sleek silhouette, it's finished with gold bow poppers on a double breasted panel.
Cassia is 1.73m (5'8) tall and is wearing a Size S in the Rowan Coat.
Mother of Pearl is a contemporary womenswear brand that celebrates individuality, authenticity and sustainability. Their design mantra is classic, but never boring.
Founded in 2002, Mother of Pearl make fashion with wit, heart and conscience - contemporary design with attitude that doesn’t cost the earth.
In just 13 years, Amy Powney has gone from sweeping the cutting-room floor at Mother of Pearl to taking the helm as its Creative Director. Sustainability has been a life-long passion for Amy and she’s been on a mission for Mother of Pearl to reduce its impact on the planet. Her collections have been shown at London Fashion Week and Copenhagen Fashion Week and are stocked by prestigious global retailers including Net-a-Porter, Harrods, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Goop.
“There’s no handbook on how to make a brand sustainable, but I wanted to know from start to finish where our product was grown or derived, who was making it and the social impacts along the way. I’ve journeyed to find the best factories, suppliers and farmers who care about the planet and its inhabitants as much as we do.”
In 2017, winning the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund enabled Mother of Pearl to launch No Frills, a core sustainable collection that forms the everyday wardrobe. They are proud to make it from organic and natural materials, with a transparent supply chain, putting social responsibility, respect to animals and low-environmental impact first and foremost.
