Consumerism and throwaway lifestyles over the last few decades, has become a huge concern globally. The significant amounts of water, chemicals and energy used before and during manufacturing and transportation mean that the clothing industry places much strain on natural resources and has an immense carbon footprint even before reaching the consumer.
We go in different direction and our goal is to prevent overproduction.
With our Pre-Order system, we can estimate how many pieces we are going to sell from one product. We only produce the number of items that we sell. This means better resource efficiency and less wasted materials. Which eventually leads to less costs per produced garments, resulting in lower production costs per garment.
Yes, you'll need to wait longer to receive your garment but you will benefit immediately by getting a lower price - in the end everybody profits from this: the environment, we, you and tomorrow’s generations.
WE WANT OUR CUSTOMERS PURCHASE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Besides from using only certified environmental friendly fabrics in our design we care for the people who make our clothing and value their experience and expertise.
We choose a partner that works under the Max Havelaar and GOTS Fair Trade guidelines and independently supports 4 NGO’s working extensively for wild life conservation, disabled care and girl child education. Our partner offers their staff a good environmental conditions in the working place, good salaries, paid monthly holiday, no double or nights shifts, provides yearly bonuses and medical insurance.
Some of our products are made in handloom weaved fabric. The weavers had their skills past down from generation of family members and we want to help preserve their heritage and culture.
"We design beautiful clothes that reflect grace, power and integrity for the independent woman desiring style, comfort and who cares about the planet".
Being a conscious consumer matters and small actions make a big difference.
The planet will love you for wearing clothing of sustainable, natural materials and your body will love you because wearing natural fibers is better for your health, especially if you’ve got sensitive skin.
Sustainable clothing can be more expensive; however, you are buying more durable clothing with a longer lifetime than mass-produced, low quality, synthetic clothing that is often chemically-treated.
