“FINDRA is a small clothing company based in Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders. FINDRA design and produce a range of active lifestyle clothing for women and men from ethically sourced merino wool. The main range of FINDRA’s products are made from merino wool which is a natural fibre and it’s both renewable and biodegradable, it requires less frequent washing and therefore as a result of that, uses less resources. FINDRA’s knitted products are made using seamless performance technology. This process produces high quality garments without seams generating 30% less waste when compared with traditional knitting processes.
The business is always striving to improve. The level of innovation in the latest product – the technical jacket – is truly futuristic and ecologically sound. The yarn that’s used in making this jacket is made from recycled plastic bottles and reused coffee granules. It’s at the cutting edge of innovation in the textile industry.”
