The DICTE is the perfect boxy cardigan that is sure to become a go-to layering piece in your closet. Features a chunky fisherman ribbed texture, two front patch pockets, and contrasting horn buttons down the front. The exaggerated side slits on the hems and sleeves ensure a drapey fit.
Made from the downy coat of the nomadic Sartuul sheep, DICTE is a durable knit. It will readily soften after a few days of use, so after buying we recommend giving it a few wears and a wash to help this process. Just like a good pair of shoes, after this brief break-in period you will never want to be without it.
100% Sartuul wool, a rare breed of nomadic sheep from the Mongolian steppe. The wool is sourced from the “Green Gold” project, a Swiss development program which organises cooperatives of nomadic herders in the Mongolian steppe. The project helps herders preserve their traditional way of life through artisanal fiber production of heritage Mongolian sartuur.
True to size with a boxy fit. We recommend you choose you regular size
About the brand
Sustainability has been at the core of Aiayu since their inception. It began with an intuitive conviction that it only made sense to produce things respectfully, responsibly, and conscientiously. It is not something we have tried to retroactively work into our business model along the way.
They have developed a set of principles which guide how Aiayu reduces its ecological impact and betters the lives of each person involved in making our products. We have determined these to be; designing items that are made to last, sourcing nature’s best materials sustainably, responsible and craft-focused production, and less waste. After 15 years of commitment to these values, they are proud of our evolving legacy of social and environmental sustainability.
