Quality matters. All pieces are carefully checked for any flaws. Selvedges must be perfect. BAKKA garments may be identified by their labels and packaging; all bear the same, distinctive two-tone BAKKA logo.
Consistent high-quality customer service and satisfaction is invaluable to us.
Sustainability is a key consideration for BAKKA .
There are three broad fields of impact: the environment (ecology), the economy and the society (social equity).
We only use sustainable yarn, whether 100% superfine merino from Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia, or Pima or sea cotton from Iafil.
BAKKA is both economically and environmentally sustainable. The BAKKA van, our new mobile shop, is as sustainable as possible. Electric vans have not yet reached the market. The electricity in the workshop is generated by a wind turbine, and the rooms are heated with a peat stove.
Also, BAKKA is as socially sustainable as possible. The location is remote, and as job opportunities arise through growth, their creation will help maintain life in the local rural community.
Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia is sufficiently confident about the quality of the entire processing of their yarn that they provide unique garment labels to be used by their customers on their products. These labels have a unique number which, should the quality of the yarn be questioned by a customer, would enable Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia to trace the lot of yarn in question right back through all stages of processing to try ascertain where and how a problem occurred.
BAKKA has operated a zero-waste policy since launching in 2016. The production unit keeps all the machine setup routines, and practice or failed pieces, which we then upcycle. Some are made into useful objects or quirky soft toys. Others are proving useful for customers with special needs.
