Inspiring meaningful consumption
FFORM is a design-conscious brand whose mission is to inspire meaningful consumption (studies show that the average person only wears 20-30% of the clothes they own).
Modern essential pieces crafted with quality materials
Stronger, softer, lighter, and warmer than either merino wool or cashmere, alpaca is a natural choice for knitwear. It is especially known for its silky sheen and luxurious softness.
With proper care, alpaca can be worn for years, reducing the demand for new products and lowering their environmental impact. Its strength reduces stretching and distortion, and grease and oil don’t spot alpaca as easily as they do other fibers.
Our commitment to sustainability
Alpaca is biodegradable and sustainable.
With one alpaca you can make up to five sweaters, while it takes four goats to produce sufficient cashmere for a single sweater.
Alpacas have soft, padded feet which are gentle on the terrain and they graze without destroying the land. Alpacas also drink less water than goats.
Alpaca wool possesses an outstanding self-cleaning capacity. After wearing, an alpaca sweater can be simply aired and spot cleaned (this reduces water and detergent use).
Baby alpaca yarn is not classified by the age of the alpaca, but rather, by the fineness of the alpaca fibre.
Handcrafted by artisans
Selected pieces in our collection were hand crafted by Peruvian women artisans who work from home so they may continue to take care of their children while earning a fair wage.
FFORM collaborates with mills and cooperatives that are in the process of becoming or are already Fair Trade certified, or have obtained a BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) certification. This means they comply with social and environmental standards as set out by the United Nations' Declaration of Human Rights.
