Maria, 48. Stockholm. (Member since Mar 21)

I’m loving the service and products from Singular Society. In particular the towels and bathrobes are of very high quality for their price. Actually, not just for their price. I much prefer my Singular Society bathrobe to the one I have from a well-known, high-end supplier to hotels.

Laundry Guide

Keeping up with new science Doing laundry is one of those chores most of us learn as kids, and then we stick to our guns forever and ever. But washing clothes is a field where there’s been tremendous development, and we should keep learning to improve our skills, and our ability to choose working materials. Because we don’t want to miss out on the science that makes our clothes last longer. Do we? Here are some basic tips that will keep your clothes so fresh, so clean Outkast would be proud.   Temperature – 30 is the new 40, and 40 is the new 60. Cold water is more gentle on your clothes, and it conserves energy, which is great for the planet – and your wallet. Consequently you will extend the lifespan of your favourite garments, towels and those sheets made from egyptian cotton by skipping old rules about cold water for darks, hot water for whites and insanely hot water for bedlinen. With help from new liquid detergents (like The Singular Society series) and modern washing machine technology you can keep it cool all the time (almost) and still get the desired effect. But as always, if you want to give that pillowcase the hotter-than-hell-treatment after you’ve been sick, feel free to do so.   Cycle length – The shorter, the better  The less time garments spend being spun around in the wash, the longer they'll last, which basically means: always go for the shortest cycle to get the job done. We solely use the quick wash program, approximately 60 minutes, and are more or less always satisfied with the result.   Detergents – Go for liquid Liquid detergent dissolves better than powder and is the mildest choice for both hand and machine washing. And be specific when choosing detergent type. The Singular Society series consists of five different detergent types, all with different qualities. “Dark Restore” or ”Color restore” enhances the pigmentation of your clothes, while ”Delicate wool & cashmere” will be gentle with your sensitive materials. And for sensitive skin, like your kids’, simply use ”Sensitive”.     Cashmere and wool – Dry flat   Wools, including cashmere and merino are prone to felting and shrinking when washed, so treat them with care. Use ”Delicate wool & cashmere detergents”, a garment bag, your washing machines wool program, 30 degrees max, short washing and no centrifuge or tumble drying. Then lay it out on a bath towel on a flat surface and let it dry, letting the towel absorb all of the water. Make sure to not stretch it. You can also wash cashmere by hand.   Silk – Wash by hand Avoid machine washing if possible, but if you decide to do so anyway, go for ”Delicate wool & cashmere detergents”, make sure to use a garment bag, and no centrifuge or tumble drying. When hand-washing your silk make it a very short operation, as silk doesn't benefit from overexposure to water. Use cool water and keep the water temperature consistent.   Conditioner – The softmaker We do love soft clothes. So we developed a conditioner that’s safe to use and kind to our planet: non toxic, organic and biodegradable. It’s also free from petroleum, phosphate and the controversial chemical phtalate. With that said: to increase the lifespan of your clothes you should avoid using conditioner on certain garments and fabrics such as atleisure, water-resistant items and synthetic fabrics like polyester or anything containing elastane and nylon. The conditioner can also reduce the absorbency of your towels if you over use it.   All our products are petroleum free, phosphate free, phtalate free, biodegradableand manufactured in a climate neutral factory in Sweden.   Cotton Flower, 750 ml liquid form.The sensitive and highly effective formula softens the fabrics as well as reducing wrinkles and static cling. Cotton Flower, 750 ml liquid form.The triple-concentrate formula removes stains as well as preserves, protects and enhances the textiles original colors.

The Singular Guide To Cashmere

Introduction The worlds best cashmere comes from the Gobi Desert of Mongolia, so naturally, this is where our cashmere comes from. If you have ever bought or felt a piece of the real thing, you will know how incredibly soft it is to touch, and both highly insulating and breathable at the same time. Because of it’s long fibers (up to 50mm long) and extremely thin (14-19 microns, compared to human hair that is around 100 microns). We only use 100% Grade A Cashmere, that are then processed and skillfully crafted into timeless, durable cashmere products from our knitting partners. Care for it, and it can last for a long time. Material Quality cashmere comes form the underbelly of the goats, and is called Grade A. It’s collected once every year, in spring, when the weather turns warm. The process is carried out by hand to ensure the cashmere is purer, and to minimize guard hairs (lower quality cashmere can be collected through shearing, and by using fibers from other parts than the underbelly). Spinning After sorting and washing, it’s spun into threads. The threads can be twisted to create thicker threads (ply), meaning that a 1-ply is a single thread, where’s a 2-ply is two threads twisted together in the spinning process. The higher the Ply (amounts of threads twisted together) the thicker and more durable the threads become. It also decreases pilling. Knitting The closeness of the knit is indicated with a gauge number, where the higher the number is the thinner and lighter the fabric becomes. Meaning that a 14-gauge fabric will be lighter, and use less cashmere yarn in the knitting process. The lower the gauge is, the thicker and more dense the fabric becomes. Care Advice Most of the time, just hanging it out in the fresh air for a while will do the trick, but for whenever you need to clean your cashmere product properly, use delicate/wool&cashmere detergents, your washing machines wool program, 30 degrees max, short washing and no centrifuge or tumble drying. Then lay it out on a bath towel on a flat surface and let it dry, letting the towel absorb all of the water. Make sure to not stretch it.You can also wash cashmere by hand, just make sure to use the delicate/wool&cashmere detergent and maximum 30 degrees, then gently let it swirl for a while, and make sure to avoid wringing or stretching. Pilling The higher the quality of the cashmere is (longer fibers), the less pilling there will be, but all cashmere products will eventually start pilling, it’s a natural process caused by friction. To remove pilling, by a cashmere comb, it will quickly and easily remove any occurrence of pilling. Keep in Mind When you buy cashmere, make sure you get the real deal, and that it’s made from a manufacturer that you trust. Look out for the origin (Mongolia/China is where the best and most durable cashmere is made), the gauge count, ply, fiber length and micron thickness.   SHOP CASHMERE

The Singular Certification Guide

We know, there are one or two acronyms and abbreviations to keep track of these days. But don’t panic. We’re here to help. Below you’ll find a dictionary of our partners' certifications. What they mean, and where you most likely will find them. We’re proud to work with partners that carry these certificates as they confirm important quality standards in our supply chain. When we make a product promise to our members, we need to know that we can live up to it – taking all points of view into consideration. Securing all steps in our production chain is a crucial part of that promise. So, let’s decrypt the letters. GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. Having one common standard means textile processors and manufacturers can export their fabrics and garments with one organic certification that is accepted in all major markets. This transparency also gives consumers the power to choose truly organic products sourced from green supply chains. You will find this certificate on many of our textile products, for example our bed linen made from sateen or percale. global-standard.org Good Cashmere Standard (GCS) ​​The Good Cashmere Standard is an independent standard for sustainable cashmere, developed by the Aid by Trade Foundation, that aims to improve the welfare of cashmere goats as well as the economic, social and ecological conditions experienced by cashmere farmers, their families and communities in Inner Mongolia. The Standard lays out a clear and comprehensive set of criteria that govern all aspects of sustainable cashmere production. You will find this certificate on all our products made from Grade A Cashmere. thegoodcashmerestandard.org   Responsible Down Standard (RDS) The Responsible Down Standard is developed by Textile Exchange, a global nonprofit that creates, develops and manages a suite of standards that provide the industry with a way to verify sustainability claims from the raw material to the final product. The objective of the RDS is to ensure that down and feathers come from animals that have not been subjected to any unnecessary harm. To reward and influence the down and feather industry for practices that respect the humane treatment of ducks and geese. To provide companies with a tool to know what is in their products, and to make accurate claims. To ensure a strong chain of custody for certified materials as they move through the supply chain. You will find this certificate on all our products made with down feathers, such as duvets, pillows and jackets. textileexchange.org REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals) REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. In principle, REACH applies to all chemical substances. REACH places the burden of proof on companies. To comply with the regulation, companies must identify and manage the risks linked to the substances they manufacture and market in the EU. They have to demonstrate how the substance can be safely used, and they must communicate the risk management measures to the users. In the long run, the most hazardous substances should be substituted with less dangerous ones. You will find this certificate on all our products made from leather. echa.europa.eu Oeko-tex 100 Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety which means that every component, every thread, button and other accessory, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless for human health. In principle, all textile articles in every stage of processing are suitable for a STANDARD 100 certification, starting from the threads to the finished fabrics and finished articles. You will find this certificate on more or less all our products made from textiles. oeko-tex.com BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global not-for-profit organisation and the largest cotton sustainability programme in the world. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future. You will find this certificate on some of our products made from cotton, for example our waffle knit bedspread and our hammam beach towels. bettercotton.org Organic This concept can vary depending on the product type. Organic cotton is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilisers, which leads to better soil condition, lower greenhouse gas emissions, stronger biodiversity and better health for cotton growers. Organic cotton also uses 62% less energy and 91% less water on average, compared with conventional cotton. Organic agriculture is a systems approach to production that is working towards environmentally, socially and economically sustainable production. It means, for example, not using artificial chemicals in the growing of plants and animals for food and other products. Organic laundry detergents are made with natural ingredients that still do the hard work of removing tough stains. You will find organic products in many of our sections, like clothing, bathroom and pantry. Recycled This concept can vary depending on the material, but essentially it means that old material is reused. Glass is for example easy to recycle without any loss in quality. Recycled cotton is made from textile remnants in production, or from post-consumer textile waste from collected garments. These are mechanically recycled, ground into fibres, spun into new yarns and made into new fabrics. Technical challenges usually don’t allow for more than 20-30% of recycled cotton from post-consumer waste to be woven into fabrics without quality loss — much depends on the waste source and style. You will find recycled glass in some of our glassware collections, and recycled cotton in for example our loopback jersey collection. Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) The Responsible Wool Standard is also developed by the non profit Textile Exchange, a voluntary standard that addresses the welfare of sheep and the land they graze on. The objective of the RWS is to provide the industry with a tool to recognize the best practices of farmers. To ensure that wool comes from farms that have a progressive approach to managing their land, practice holistic respect for animal welfare of the sheep and respect the Five Freedoms of animal welfare. To ensure a strong chain of custody for certified materials as they move through the supply chain. You will find this certificate on some of our products made from Merino Wool. textileexchange.org

The Singular Socks Guide

The characteristics of a high quality sock There are many so-called “style rules” regarding socks: colour combinations, certain lengths and styles. To be honest: We don’t care about any of them. However, we care that the sock you choose to wear is made of high quality. A pair of high quality socks will cover and keep your feet warm, protect them from abrasion, soak up your perspiration and keep their shape and colour for a long time after dancing around in the washing machine. So, what to look for? The length of the fibres in the processed yarn is important for high quality, that’s why we use organic and egyptian cotton. Socks undergo much greater stress in the heel and toe area than in the rest of the sock, all our socks come with reinforced heel and toe. Only high-quality colors do not bleed and can survive the daily strains. For maximum quality, our products hold Oeko-Tex 100 certification, meaning that they are colored with dyes that are completely skin-friendly. Socks can be really fun to explore. That’s why we offer over ten variations of this often forgotten clothing detail. One sock model to rule them all… or? Yes. And no. For some people the one-model-one-material-all-occasions-sock is just enough. If you prefer that, please keep on rockin that ultimate sock of yours. But, if you want to customize your socks according to occasion, season and shoe type there are many choices to be made. How you wear them, and when depends on the shape, material and colour. Length? Below ankle for sneakers, calf for everyday and knee-high for dressed occasions are just some guidelines. Do you prefer rib or plain? What colour? You can go white for sporty, black for classic or just be grey. Material: merino or cashmere for heat, cotton for everyday life and a blend of wool, silk and/or cashmere for luxury. And that’s just the beginning. Different materials and qualities For our range of socks we work with a number of materials and combinations: Organic cotton is cool and lightweight, it’s softer and more comfortable than regular treated cotton. It’s grown with no harmful fertilizers and pesticides and perfect for everyday use. Egyptian Cotton is considered to be one of the highest cotton qualities you can get. Cashmere is incredibly soft to the touch, highly insulating and breathable, and when combined with silk you get the best of both worlds: coziness and exclusivity. Merino wool is breathable and still with a warming effect. Wool is warming without absorbing moisture, and combined with silk you get a neat sock but still with that firm, comfortable grip around the foot. Tencel comes from wood pulp that undergoes a process where it’s dissolved in a nontoxic organic solvent before being turned into a fabric that has fantastic recovery abilities and colours that keep their sharpness. Trial and error is the only way to find your favourite. Take care of your socks and make them last When washing, always use cold water which is more gentle. So go for a maximum of 30 degrees to extend the lifespan of your socks made from all sorts of cotton. Wools, including cashmere and merino are prone to felting and shrinking when washed, so treat them with care. Use ”Delicate wool & cashmere detergents”, a garment bag and your washing machines wool program on a maximum of 30 degrees. No centrifuge or tumble drying. Lay the socks on a bath towel on a flat surface and let them dry. Another reason to use a garment bag is to avoid pilling. Pills form when short fibers in a material come loose, get tangled, and form tiny balls of yarn at the end of the fiber. The number one cause of pilling is excessive rubbing against other surfaces, and nowhere does this occur more than in the washer and dryer. Our models The Singular Society collection of high quality socks is a range of different styles and materials, creating a selection of socks that will stand the test of time and fulfill most needs and preferences – no matter the place or occasion.

THE SINGULAR SOCIETY GUIDE TO LEATHER

If you have nerd tendencies leather is a field where you can lose yourself in an almost surreal amount of details. So… we’ll try to keep it simple. The truth is that well-crafted products made from leather of the highest quality (full grain) are often so expensive that only a lucky few can afford them. And that’s a pity, because if they are treated well, they can last a lifetime.

Organic Teas For All Occasions

For our selection of state of the art teas we’re partnering with Mount Everest Tea Company GmbH Germany, one of the oldest tea companies in Europe, certified according to the International Food Standard (IFS) as well as for the processing and trade of products from controlled organic cultivation. This means our teas originate from some of the most significant and unique tea growing areas in the world. HistoryTea is the world’s second most consumed beverage after water and there are hundreds of drinking rituals and traditions around the world. But who started it all? Well, the earliest physical evidence known to date comes from the Han dynasty, indicating that tea was drunk in China 200 years BC. Europeans picked it with the help of Portuguese merchants in the early 16th century. In the 17th century the British introduced tea production, as well as consumption, to India. Most teas, regardless of their colour, originate from the beautiful tea plant known as Camellia Sinensis. From plant to cupAll our teas are purchased at fair conditions from highly regarded producers and suppliers around the world. These selected natural treasures are mixed and processed with great attention to detail using recipes from tea tasters in Elmshorn, located in northern Germany at Mount Everest Tea Company. All teas are completely organic: no artificial colouring, sugar, sweeteners or preservatives are added. You will only enjoy pure flavours and herbs of the highest quality planet earth has to offer. Whole leafs or small cuts?We use whole or broken leafs and herbs for our range of teas. The larger the leaf, the greater its surface area for steeping and the more complex the infusion. Many bagged teas are machine-picked and use low-quality fannings and dust. Smaller grades release tannins more quickly, leading to a dark, bitter-tasting cup. This won’t happen when you’re drinking your favourite cup from Singular Society.   Packing tea sustainablyAll flavours come in biodegradable pyramid tea bags – specially designed to carry large pieces of leafs and herbs – in units of 15, packaged in a box made from grass paper. The teas come packed in an environmentally friendly transparent NatureFlex bag (fully compostable bio foil) to protect the natural aromas. No other company that we know of uses tea of this exclusivity and quality level on pyramid bags, but we absolutely love the simplicity of it. Think of it as drinking Romanée Conti wine from a bag-in-box :-) SHOP TEA   Tea Sorts Black TeaBlack tea is known and sought after all over the world. The production of orthodox black tea comprises 6 processes that overlap each other. It’s the fermentation process that causes the green tea leaves to turn black during subsequent drying. Black tea is available in different leaf grades, for example as leaf tea or broken tea. Preparation: Depending on where they are grown, the various types of black tea differ in the intensity of taste and thus require individual preparation. Fundamentally, all black teas are brewed with boiling water. The lighter the tea, the shorter the brewing time. Green TeaIn the production of green tea the fermentation process is interrupted. Thus the leaves retain their natural green colour. You can find green tea in every variation. Whether small and round with long, light-green leaves or dark-green and wiry – not to mention the variations in taste. Preparation: The tannin in green tea is released faster than in black tea. In order to avoid a bitter taste, boil the water once and then cool it down to 80–90 °C. In the case of the Japanese teas, let the water cool down to even 60–70 °C before brewing the tea. Green tea can be infused several times from the same leaves. Flavoured Tea (Black and Green)Flavoured teas look back on a long Far Eastern tradition. Since the 18th century, flavoring has been done in China with jasmine or rose petals. The Earl Grey, named after the British Prime Minister Edward Grey, is probably the most famous flavoured black tea, to which the oil of the bergamot fruit is added. Flavoured teas are ideal for tea beginners to familiarise themselves with the special notes first, and for anyone with a love for a traditional tasting cup of morning or afternoon tea. First flush loveIn India, tea plucking times are called flushes. In Japan and China, they are called harvests. The first flush is considered the best one, it’s also the most expensive one and the reason we love first flush teas is simply because of their delicacy and freshness. The exact time of the first flush will depend on the country, tea, area and even tea farmer. In Indian Darjeeling the first flush is harvested in the spring, followed by second in the summer and third in the autumn. Organic Tea Fertilizers and pesticides are not used in an organic certified garden, and thus complex manual weed control is carried out by human hands. It goes without saying that we only use flavours in our flavoured products in accordance with the current organic regulations. Multiple infusionsWith high quality tea you can brew multiple infusions, regardless of its colour. Leave your pyramid tea bags in the cup (or vessel) with the lid on and try to minimize the time between infusions. A general rule is that leaves that dry out between infusions typically lose it’s flavour intensity. Our selection of high-quality teas Gyokuro Celestial LightOrganic green tea Jade-green fine needles and a sweetish umami taste are distinctive of this top tea. It is made from the Yabukita tea plant, which is characterized by an intense and fresh taste. The leaves are shaded with an intensity of 90% for 21 days before picking, giving the tea plant a dark green colour and pleasant velvety sweetness. Darjeeling First Flush SFTGFOPI OaksOrganic black tea The Oaks plantation is located at an altitude of approximately 1.600 meters above sea level, and produces world leading Darjeeling teas. This strong bodied first flush captivates a fine elegance and delivers a delicate, honey sweet and golden-yellow brew.

The T-shirt Guide

Why the t-shirt? How come the t-shirt is the most worn garment in the history of mankind? Well, it started with a slogan: “It’s an undershirt, it’s an outershirt”, stated in 1938 by the American retailer Sears, Roebuck and Company. The slogan made the t-shirt wearable for all occasions. But the journey started way earlier, as an undergarment for the upper class in the 19-th century. The t-shirt went through many changes in terms of shape, material and form before Fruit of the Loom started with mass marketing in the 1910's. By the 1930’s the t-shirt was standard among athletes and sailors and in the Second World War, the US Army was issuing white, short-sleeved, cotton t-shirts to their troops. In the 1950’s the garment found its way to Hollywood via Marlon Brando and James Dean… and the rest is, as we all know, history. One t-shirt to rule them all… or? A t-shirt is never just a t-shirt. How you wear it, and when depends on the shape, material and colour. You can go white for classic, black for dressed up, merino for heat, cotton for everyday life, cashmere for everyday luxury, thick for streetwear, thin linen for beach life and so on. The different aspects you need to consider first and foremost are: the shape of the tee, the length of the sleeve, the making, the neckline type, thickness and breathability of the material. Different materials Different kinds of cotton are the most common material in a t-shirt. Organic cotton is softer and more comfortable than regular treated cotton. Grown with no harmful fertilizers and pesticides. Egyptian Cotton, Pima cotton and (on top of the circus) Sea Island cotton are considered to be the highest quality cotton you can get. These cottons are made from extra-long fibers, which makes the t-shirt extremely soft and durable, resisting pilling, fading, and stretching in an excellent way. Other materials suitable for t-shirts are merino wool – breathable and still with a warming effect, cashmere, which is incredibly soft to the touch, highly insulating and breathable. And of course linen, the perfect summer choice with it’s cooling and airy effect. Make it last When washing, always use cold water which is more gentle. Go for a maximum of 30 degrees to extend the lifespan of your t-shirts made from all sorts of cotton or linen. Wools, including cashmere and merino are prone to felting and shrinking when washed, so treat them with care. Use ”Delicate wool & cashmere detergents”, a garment bag and your washing machines wool program on a maximum of 30 degrees. No centrifuge or tumble drying. Then lay it out on a bath towel on a flat surface and let it dry. Make sure to not stretch it. You can also wash cashmere and wool by hand.

Dosnon – Champagne Recolte Noir Zero DosageExclusively for Singular Society members.     Welcome to Singular Society’s second wine release! After the success of the incredible Barbaresco Albesani from Piero Busso, it's time for a high-class Champagne. About two hours drive from the city of Reims is Champagne's southernmost subregion Côte des Bar. Here we also find the most exciting growers right now, including Davy Dosnon, who has 7.5 hectares of vineyards. Together with the importer Budbreak and Wines We Want, we are incredibly proud to make this exclusive Champagne from Davy Dosnon available to all Singular Society members at cost price. Before Davy succeeded in acquiring his own vineyards in Champagne, he worked in Burgundy for a long time. The experience from this is clearly reflected in his Champagne making process, and it is not for nothing that his wines are often referred to as ”bubbling better Chablis”. Part of the reason is that the soil in Dosnon's vineyards, calcareous kimmeridgian clay, is almost identical to the soil in Chablis. Of course he also ferments his champagnes in Burgundian oak barrels! Champagne Dosnon Recolte Noir Zero Dosage is, as the name suggests, crisp dry. The wine is made from 100 percent pinot noir from vines with an average age of 25 years. The finished wine is a mixture of different vintages, a so-called multi vintage, where 30 percent are older reserve wines. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels from Puligny-Montrachet where it spends a total of 24 months on the yeast precipitate before bottling. Zero dosage means wine without added sugar, which makes it both fresh and focused. The champagne was disgorged (that is, the moment when the bottom batch is removed and the final cork is placed in the bottle) on October 4, 2021. Please order your bottles of Champagne Dosnon Recolte Noir Zero Dosage by clicking here. All information regarding this purchase will be in Swedish due to Swedish law. If you find this limiting, please contact us with your order request at hello@wineswewant.com. The price per bottle of Champagne Dosnon Recolte Noir Zero Dosage is 420 SEK. The champagne is sold in units of three at a price of 1260 SEK. The minimum order amount is one unit of three, the maximum order amount per member is four units of three (12 bottles in total). The traditional retail price is 570 SEK per bottle, and 1710 SEK for units of three. The wine is exclusively available to Singular Society members.   SHOP WINE

Limited edition drop: The Shearling Aviator Jacket

Our limited edition drops are true one of a kind products, made in smaller amounts and available during a limited period for our members. This series of products include the TSS x RT Inez Surfboard, The Handknitted Merino Pillow Cover from Patagonia and The Piero Busso – Barbaresco, Albesani, 2018. Products with unique stories and qualities that we are deeply passionate about. Dreams that come true for us, and hopefully, for all of us :-) The Shearling Aviator Jacket is our latest limited edition drop addition – a true classic that feels like a warming, solid hug that you never want to let go. The aviator jacket first saw it's light during World War I. The planes did not have an enclosed cockpit and the pilots needed something to keep them warm, so the U.S army set up the Aviation Clothing Board, and the warm fur lined heavy-duty leather flight jacket took form. This archetypical piece has a generous fit, without being oversized. Semi matte lambskin with lamb shearling lining, and pocket bags in lamb leather with inside made of cotton twill. The jacket has two wide top applied welt pockets at the front, and two inside pockets. A chunky 2-way metal zip and zip shield on the inside for extra comfort. Honoring the original, we've made a jacket that will keep you warm when the cold wind is blowing. Care for it and it will last for generations.     VIEW SHEARLING AVIATOR JACKET    

Let’s start cooking!

We’ve waited long enough, but now it’s finally here! A warm welcome to the Oven Roaster, made from 3-ply Japanese industry high-grade stainless steel that provides even heat distribution throughout the entire pan – elevating your cooking skills to a new level. Throw in your veggies, your baked ziti or that lamb roast and watch with joy as it cooks when your oven roaster performs perfectly every time.  To celebrate the arrival of this Oven Roaster we picked up a true cookbook favourite: Bread is gold, by the one and only Massimo Bottura – the three star Michelin mastermind behind Osteria Francescana in Modena – always cooking with an open heart and a big smile. This version of the classic ”Pasta alla parmigiana” – borrowed from Bread is gold – is a safe bet when cooking for friends and loved ones. Try it and you’ll not be disappointed.  Serves: 6 5 medium eggplants, cut into medium cubes 65g all-purpose flour 1L sunflower oil Salt 600g rigatoni pasta or other short pasta 100ml extra-virgin olive oil 1 onion, finely diced 2 carrots, finely diced 1 celery stalk, finely diced 800g canned peeled tomatoes, drained ½ tbsp granulated sugar Freshly ground black pepper 150g mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced 12 basil leaves 200g Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated Step 1 Preheat the oven to 160°C Step 2 Toss the eggplants in the flour. In a medium pot, heat the sunflower oil to 175°C. Working in batches, add the eggplant and fry until crispy and golden brown, 6 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Set aside. Step 3 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over medium heat. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain and set aside. Step 4 Meanwhile, in a medium pot, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, and celery and cook until golden, about 15 minutes. Add the tomatoes and sugar and season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the pasta and toss to combine. Step 5 Transfer one-fourth of the pasta mixture to a deep, ca 20x26cm baking dish and spread to cover. Top with one-fourth of the mozzarella, one-fourth of the eggplant, and 3 basil leaves. Repeat this layering three more times, omitting the basil leaves on the top layer. Sprinkle the top layer with the Parmigiano. Step 6 Bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes before serving.  (Thanks Massimo for making our lives a little tastier!)

Wine Time

Piero Busso – Barbaresco, Albesani, 2018Exclusively for Singular Society members.     Our first ever wine release is a unique collaboration between Singular Society and the family producer Piero Busso from the Piedmont region in northern Italy. Together with the importer Budbreak and Wines We Want, we are incredibly proud to make this exclusive Barbaresco wine available to all Singular Society members at cost price. To find the perfect red wine, we went to Italy's most sought after wine region, Piedmont. More specifically, Barbaresco, and the village of Neive, where the family producer Piero Busso is located. Here, among the misty hills of Langhe, the family has been making wine since 1953. In 2010, the young winemaker Pierguido took over from his father, and for the past ten years he has elevated the family's wines to a new level, adapting the vineyards to a more sustainable process and increasing the biological diversity among the vines. Barbaresco Albesani 2018 is made from 100 percent nebbiolo grapes from the top of the Albesani vineyard in the village of Neive. Vintage 2018 offered a lot of sun and heat, which means that the wine is a little more generous and open already at the start. The young, direct and austere nebbiolo fruit can definitely be seductive and should not be missed, while a deeper treasure is promised if you can wait until 2025-2027. Piero Busso is still involved and supervises the work in the vineyard while his son Pierguido is involved in all parts of the process.”Every aspect of daily life in our winery passes through the hands and in front of the eyes of one of us. With the same passion and the same enthusiasm as always!”, says Pierguido. Barbaresco Albesani is a craft wine in its purest form. Please order your bottles of Barbaresco Albesani by clicking here. All information regarding this purchase will be in Swedish due to Swedish law. If you find this limiting, please contact us with your order request at hello@wineswewant.com.  The price per bottle of Barbaresco Albesani is 492 SEK. The wine is sold in units of three at a price of 1476 SEK. The minimum order amount is one unit of three, the maximum order amount per member is two units of three (six bottles in total). The traditional retail price is 620 SEK per bottle, and 1860 SEK for units of three. The wine is exclusively available to Singular Society members.   SHOP WINE

Interview with Alberto Galletti

Alberto Galletti is the founder of RT Surfboards. For 20 years he has been shaping surfboards from his legendary shop in Anglet in France. He comes from Bologna in Italy, a beautiful city, but hardly a hotspot for watersports. Alberto started windsurfing in the late 70’s during summer vacations and he’s been obsessed with watersports ever since. He moved to France in the mid 90’s where he opened his shop on the surf obsessed east coast in the outskirts of Biarritz. Why and when did you start shaping surfboards?– In 1984, I think, me and my cousin decided to build our own boards. We had no guidance and hardly any idea on how to do it; we were 17, landlocked and inexperienced, but for some unclear reasons board-building looked totally fascinating. I shaped all kinds of boards for me and my close friends for the next decade and a half, before finally creating RT SURFBOARDS as it is now, 20 years ago. What makes RT shapes unique?– All the people at RT SURFBOARDS are obsessed with surfing, surfers, surfboards and style. We carry decades of experience as passionate surfers and board builders. We live and breathe to offer a very unique blend of uncompromised performance, impeccable construction, bold style and personality. What is your theory on surfboards?– There are many different types of surfboards; they work in different ways and are suited for different styles and different conditions. For one shaper, trying to master all types of surfboard shapes is illusory, I think. To be as good and knowledgeable as possible, I am focused on the wide family of the ”'so-called' shortboards, only.Where do you take inspiration from?– As long as surfboard design goes, I rely mainly upon the surfer’s feedback. From team riders, of course, as they have the level and the finesse to feel the detail; but I learn lessons and draw feedback from all kinds of surfers. Besides surf design, I try to stay open to all kinds of influences and to soak in inspiration everywhere: fashion, architecture, furniture, art, mechanics… Everything beautiful and remarkable is inspirational, regardless of the field. Walk us through the process of shaping a surfboard?–At RT SURFBOARDS everything starts with the design of the board. As I have been designing with a computer for more than 15 years, I have the inventory of all the boards we made during that time: a pretty solid archive to play with! When the design is ok, the raw blank (PU or EPS) is pre-shaped by our in-house CNC machine. The pre-shaped blank is then cut, sanded, checked and finished to perfection in the shaping room. Fin boxes are fitted in, then the board goes through the lamination process. We end the process with the sanding and different types of finishing, depending upon the surfer’s demand. What should one think about when looking for a new surfboard?– You have to answer 3 main questions: 1) What do you want to do with it (it’s about riding style)? Sporty, committed aggressive surfing, or mellow, easy going glide? 2) In which conditions do you want to use the board (it’s about the wave type)? Small waves, everyday conditions, bigger, more solid stuff, stormy conditions, exotic surf trips? 3) Which measurements match with your body frame (it’s about your size)? Surfboards work better when the dimensions are appropriate!A mid length surfboard has become popular the last couple of years, why do you think that is?– Mid-length is actually a really wide, generic description: many different shapes coexist under this same ‘’label''. The vision I had, when I developed this model, was for a shape long and big enough to be comfortable and sincere, but technically enhanced to still be capable of drawing beautiful lines in a wide range of conditions. No wonder that such a shape is popular! What are the characteristics for the Singular board?– The RT x Singular Society Mid-L has a very balanced shape, with a mellow, progressive rocker. The bottom features a light double concave under the front foot, blending into an accentuated Vee off the tail. The rails are designed to deliver the best compromise between trust and sensitiveness. The boards are built with the finest materials available, PU core and polyester resin. They come in an elegant warm grey shade, made with tinted resin. For better fine-tuning possibilities, they are equipped with a convertible FCS II fin system (5 positions), so that they can be used alternately as Tri Fin or as Quattro. Who should ride it and for what type of conditions?– These boards are enjoyable in a wide range of conditions, and accessible to most surfers with a minimum of experience. The match between surfers size and shape measurements will define the character of the board: the smaller versions will be quite sporty for a big and heavy surfer; the bigger versions will be very comfortable for a small and light surfer… Limited Edition Handshaped surfboards in collaboration with RT View Surfboards

Jersey sure

Next level comfortWhat’s the ultimate wardrobe essential? Clue: It’s versatile enough to be worn at any time any day of the year… We’re talking about the classic crew neck sweatshirt. The original sweatshirt was invented in 1926 by an american football player named Benjamin Russell Jr. and just like so many times before, it all started with the pursuit of comfort. Russell was tired of itchy wool jerseys so he started thinking about something cooler…Conveniently enough his dad, Benjamin Russel, owned a clothing company (perhaps you’ve heard of Russel Athletic…?). The rest is, as we all know, history. The cotton sweatshirt became the hoodie, the sweatpants, and the sweatshorts. Today, these sporty classics are everyday essentials suitable for almost all occasions and people. The Singular Society loopback jersey collection is made from a combination of recycled (30%) and organic cotton (70%), with a peached, smooth surface. Super soft loopback knit on the inside (the name comes from the traditional knitting machine ”loopwheel”) creates a fabric that is both lighter and more resistant to pilling than traditional fleece. Cozy up with a whole set or wear them one at a time. These garments take comfort to the next level. Our loopback hoodie has a top applied front pocket and silver metal cord ends. The fit is not too tight nor is it oversized, which allows you to wear it under any light jacket, and if you prefer a more generous fit, just go up in size. These loopback sweatpants have an elastic rib waistband with drawcord and silver metal cord ends. Relaxed rib cuff at the bottom leg, two front pockets and a back pocket with rounded edges. Our version of the classic crew neck sweatshirt has a traditional raglan sleeve, regular fit and wrap around rib collar. Regular fit and true to size, if you prefer a more generous fit, just go up in size. These cotton-jersey sweatshorts have an elastic rib waistband with drawcord and silver metal cord ends, two slanted front pockets and (for the men’s version) one patch pocket with rounded edges in the back.
