EARTH AND US
Caring for our Earth and its people is important to us. We love what we do and are committed to walking forward a little lighter every year, one step at a time.
Our 2018 collection includes TENCEL®. It is made from sustainable wood fibre and is one of the most environmentally friendly regenerated fabrics on the planet. The chemicals used to produce TENCEL® are non-toxic. TENCEL® fabric carries the Oeko Tex 100 certification. It is more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.
The custom printing in our TENCEL® range uses dyes that leave no nasty chemical residues. The closed-loop natural filtration process, set up around the screen-printing workspace, filters the dye run-off before it is released into the environment. These ponds are abundant with plants and fish. It is beautiful to see.
We have made the switch to using bio plastic for our apparel packaging bags. These biodegradable bags are made out of cassava and will become compost within 180 days upon its disposal.We use recycled paper bags for customer purchases in-store.We are seeking alternatives to plastic parcel bags for our on-line orders.
We have a strong personal relationship with our factory’s owner and for a month a year, work side by side with the skilled artisans she employs. Her integrity towards the factory’s ethical production practices is why we love and choose her (as well as her impeccable quality).
