Smalls Merino is a collection of superfine next to skin essentials that never need taking off, with limited need for washing and incredible versatility in wearing. Thoughtful design elements make Smalls seasonless and quality fabric choices ensures longevity.
"Happy Underneath it all"
Smalls the brand came about over a glass of wine in Cats kitchen, the brand name has a perfect double meaning. Representing Smalls - your smalls people and Smalls - your underwear, a British euphemism for ones unmentionables.
Garments have a high attention to detailing, with contrast stitching and cords a signature mark. All fabric is traceable to source.
Smalls Merino launched in Selfridges July 2014 with a mission to re imagine the way we wear wool. How we make Smalls, and the values behind it were and remain as important to us today. Sustainability and traceability have always been at the core of everything we do, right before it was a thing.
Smalls original tag line “Happy underneath it all” was also created by another amazing New Zealander; Worldwide Executive Creative Director of Mother, Susan Hosking – who has been besties with Cat since they were four years old!
We have always been about ‘Slow Fashion’. Slow’ to us means buying less and choosing well. We create luxury essential merino garments that have genuine longevity and traceable provenance, all the dots carefully joined, from farm to fashion.
We ONLY work with ZQ Merino certified farms, ensuring our wool is held to the highest standards of farming, land management and animal welfare. Our fabric mill in Italy is the only one in the world with BCorp and EMAS certification and 100% vertical supply chain. We have partnered with a family run factory in Portugal to make our Smalls with love.
