OUR ECO MANIFESTO
We LOVE You Mother Earth
Planet Earth is the most important to us. From the beginning, we have been involved in every process of creating our products, so that their creation does not have negative effects on the environment and climate.
Great things starting from sustainable idea.
We believe that ethical intentions and sustainable practices, alongside design, should underline a garment's value. We work to integrate core sustainable principles with high-quality materials without compromising on the look, quality and functionality of each piece.
Our clothes is designed to last beyond the season, moving away from the practice of fast-fashion that generates enormous waste with huge environmental implications. We aim to remove the stigma that clothing should only be worn once or twice. Our clothes is designed to serve as key standout essentials that can be mixed-and-matched or built upon. We aim to inspire our customers to explore their own personal style through considered design in order to generate a more sustainable future.
MATERIALS & CERTIFICATES
Our priority is to use natural fabrics such as linen and cotton from sustainable sources, Lenzing-certified cellulose fibers which are synthetic fibers obtained from wood cellulose. Thanks to proven suppliers, we can be sure that the production of these fibers does not contribute to illegal logging.
We using also recycled fabrics which has a 75% lower carbon footprint than virgin materials and uses up to 90% less water.
The use of recycled materials and fibers contributes to reducing the need for new raw materials, thus reducing the use of water for their production and reducing air and soil pollution.
All our fabrics are certified according to international standards such as GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), BCI ( Better Cotton Initiative) , OEKO-TEX , Lenzing
We constantly want to expand our offer of natural fabrics with new certificates.
GOTS ( Global Organic Textile Standard)
Is the best and most detailed textile certificate in the world, covering all stages of the production of natural fabrics - from the raw material to the finished product, as well as social and environmental issues. GOTS guarantees that the certified products have been manufactured with respect for the natural environment and employees' rights.
Is a certificate confirming the quality of textile and textile products that come into direct contact with human skin. Thanks to this certificate, the fabrics from which the clothes are made are free from harmful substances, e.g. pesticides, chlorophenols, formaldehyde, dyes etc.
The wood of LENZING ™ fibers comes from certified and renewable sources. It is obtained using an ecologically responsible production process and meeting high environmental standards.
The production of LENZING certified fibers is adapted to a sustainable lifestyle and doesn't harm the environment. The certificate guarantees that clothes made of fabrics made of these certified fibers have a low impact on the environment.
Viscose fibers come from wood and wood pulp from certified and controlled sources.
They received the EU Ecolabel certificate as meeting high environmental standards throughout their life cycle: from raw material production to production, distribution and disposal.
BCI ( Better Cotton Initiative)
Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is the world's largest cotton sustainability program.
BCI aims to change world cotton production by counteracting the negative effects of its cultivation and processing. In line with the following four goals, BCI aims to make the Better Cotton program sustainable and universal:
- Reducing the environmental impact of cotton production
- Improving the living conditions and economic development in areas where cotton is produced
- Improve commitment and introduce Better Cotton throughout the supply chain
- Ensuring credibility and sustainability with the Better Cotton Initiative
Our main priority is to use natural fabrics from proven factories that have the highest world certificates. They are safe for both the environment and humans.
We use materials that do not harm the animals in any part of the process.
We prefer to work with these materials because they have also so many great properties and are comfortable to wear.
fabrics we use :
It is cotton grown without the use of hazardous chemicals, chemical pesticides or artificial fertilizers.This type of cultivation saves water, which is used in enormous amounts during industrial cultivation.
The process of harvesting and processing organic cotton fibers is also different - organic cotton is harvested only by hand, and further processing of the fibers takes place without the use of machines.
The dyeing process is also important, and it is only acceptable when natural dyes are used without chemicals. Thanks to the natural production and elimination of chemicals, organic cotton fibers are durable and strong, but also pleasant to the skin.
It is ecological.Linen is a natural material made of plant fibers.When growing, it does not require artificial names or intensive watering.
It decomposes completely, leaving no environmentally hazardous waste.
It is durable.
Thanks to the strong weave of fibers, linen is resistant to stretching and friction. It can be washed at high temperatures without fear that the fibers will be damaged and the material will shrink.
Linen has anti-allergic and anti-fungal properties. This makes it ideal for people suffering from allergies.
It is a material 100% obtained from nature, and more precisely from wood cellulose.
The process of creation consists in dissolving cellulose and then making threads from it. For this reason, tencel is often compared to viscose, but there is quite a significant difference between the two fabrics.
Substances that dissolve cellulose are caustic substances in the case of viscose, in the case of tencel a non-toxic and biodegradable solvent is used, which is safe for us and the environment.
A great advantage of its use is also the fact that it can be reused in almost 100%.
NATURAL FABRIC DYES
We want to squeeze as much out of nature and its resources as possible, which is why we dye our fabrics and fibers with dyes of natural origin, which are obtained from local plants. Thanks to this, we know that the fabrics are safe and do not contain heavy metals and chemicals.
We sew our clothes locally, not globally. It is a conscious choice that allows us to minimize the negative impact on the environment.
We use fabrics to the maximum. From the remaining fabric scraps we sew hair bands, vanity cases or bags.
We pack all orders in corrugated cardboard boxes made of 90% recycled materials. The print made with the use of water-based paints makes the boxes compostable and biodegradable after use.
We encourage our suppliers to re-use packing materials .We reuse all cartons in our warehouse and office ourselves.
