Ethical Practices

Our Fabrics

Surplus

The textile industry creates a lot of waste and more often than none fabrics intended for clothing will end up in a warehouse or the cutting floor. Our goal is to save high quality surplus fabrics and turn them into beautiful garments.

Organic Cotton

The production of organic cotton is non-toxic, omitting the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilisers. It is natural, biodegradable and hypoallergenic.

Modal

The production of Modal is carbon-neutral, requires less land per tonne than cotton fibres and has a water consumption level that’s ten to twenty times less than that of cotton. Making it a more sustainable choice compared to other synthetic fibers. It also has a ultra soft hand-feel.

Slow Fashion

The fast fashion industry is fuelled by insatiable demand for cheap clothing and accessories. Fast fashion has a harmful impact, from sweatshops and child labour to pollution and global warming. Slow Fashion means standing up against exploitation, slum cities and pollution.

We produce and support products that are true to our values: having a minimal carbon footprint and making sure that people are treated with dignity and respect.

What is fair-trade and why?

It is a social movement that help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions and to promote sustainability.

High subsidies in western countries keep cotton prices often below production cost, following fair-trade regulations ensures that the situation of cotton farmers in India are improved by setting a minimum price that covers the costs and living expenses of the rural farmers.

We believe that in order for our further generations to continue to enjoy this beautiful place we call earth, it is our duty to start living in conjunction with nature and to reduce our carbon footprints. We also believe that products that come from mother earth are the best ingredients for us, hence we dedicate our time into sourcing the best products that are handmade and are rid of chemical processing.
