Qiviuk Supports Sustainability

Qiviuk’s DNA is Sustainable Materials

The world of fashion is no exception in today's disposable culture. Fast fashion is often made with inexpensive materials of lower quality, leading to clothes that wear out quickly and need to be replaced frequently. On the other hand, luxury clothing has traditionally been linked to elegant, quality, exclusive pieces made from enduring materials.

While the fast fashion industry may offer lower-cost clothing to consumers, the truth is that this will be more expensive in the long run due to the negative impact on our environment. The mass-production of low-quality materials results in clothing that’s designed to be disposed of in landfills which contributes to our environmental problems.

By investing in luxury clothing, consumers can enjoy timeless pieces that are made with superior materials designed to last for years to come. This makes luxury fashion a more sustainable and responsible choice compared to fast fashion's throwaway culture.

As consumers become more aware of the environmental impact of fast fashion, there is a shift to purchasing clothing that is more sustainably made with long-lasting materials. Luxury clothing that incorporates fibers and materials derived from ethical sources have been known to be kept as treasures for years to come. This is one benefit of Qiviuk garments.

Here are many benefits of sustainable luxury clothing and the materials used to create the Qiviuk line.

Sustainable luxury clothing is produced with respect for the environment and people. Our clothing is made from materials that have a low environmental impact and are designed to last for many years. This type of clothing is made with high-quality materials that can remain in excellent condition for a long time.

At Qiviuk, we use quality wools to create sustainable luxury clothing. These natural fibers are biodegradable and renewable, making them an environmentally friendly choice. While they feel soft and warm to the touch, they are also excellent materials for the high-quality clothing we produce.

The softest and warmest wool comes from muskoxen. These are large, shaggy mammals that are native to the Arctic regions of North America and Greenland. They are well-adapted to living in harsh, cold environments, with a thick coat of fur that helps them stay warm in the freezing temperatures.



Muskoxen are an important part of the Arctic ecosystem. They are a species that play a crucial role in maintaining the balance of the ecosystem by grazing on vegetation and creating paths through the snow for other animals to follow. Conservation efforts are underway to protect muskoxen and their habitat. In some areas, hunting of muskoxen is regulated to ensure that populations remain stable. Ongoing efforts are being made to study and monitor their populations, as well as to protect their habitat from the impacts of climate change and human development.

We recognize the value of muskoxen and strive to use this precious wool in our clothing by ensuring the well being of these animals and treating them humanely. In fact, all our yarns, knitwear, and fabrics made with quality qiviut fibre, vicuna fibre, ultra-fine merino wool, cashmere, mulberry silk yarn, heavenly alpaca are ethically sourced. 


In addition to the materials used, our production process of sustainable luxury clothing is also important. Our clothing manufacturers use eco-friendly processes and we ensure our workers are treated fairly and paid a fair wage. Qiviuk’s garments are handcrafted by workers in Peru who use both traditional hand weaving and advanced methods.

Whether it's a sweater, shawl, or gloves, each Qiviuk garment is made to last for years, serving as a keepsake that can be passed down to future generations. The garments are not influenced by passing trends and are designed to be classic and durable. This distinguishes it from fast fashion, which is fleeting and poorly made.

Qiviuk's luxury clothing, made from sustainable materials such as organic cotton, linen, wool, silk, and others, is an excellent choice for eco-conscious consumers who are concerned about their fashion choices' environmental impact and want to feel good about their choices. By choosing Qiviuk's sustainable clothing, you can help support ethical fashion practices while looking and feeling good.
