We both started in fashion because we couldn’t help ourselves but dream of and create clothing, it felt like a force bigger than both of us. As we made our way into the fashion industry, it quickly dawned on us, how many decisions we made were directly linked to sustainability: from design, to sourcing, to finance, to our diaries. We realised that with every decision we made we had a choice to stay committed, commit or re-commit to our values:
Choosing ethical: love for the people now & choosing sustainable: love for the generations to come.
We are constantly learning, evaluating and re-evaluating our approach to sustainability. These are evolving and will change, but we wanted to be clear with you about the steps we are taking and commitments that we are standing by:
Commitment to the SLOW FASHION REVOLUTION
This is a commitment concerning our design process and design calender. We do not want to be dictated by seasons and trends. We want to create each piece with longevity and durability in mind. We commit to:-
80% season-less pieces (i.e. not trending pieces)
80% clothing items made of 100% biodegradable fabrics e.g. 100% linen and 100% cotton
Commitment to COMPOSTABLE & RECYCLABLE PACKAGING
Through this commitment when considering packaging we will make sure all materials used can be recycled and be mindful of reducing waste and plastics.
Commitment to LOCAL EU PRODUCTION
Our ateliers are all within the EU and in the EU all workers have a right to health and safety at work. We work with ateliers bound by this standard. There is also a minimum working age in the EU which ensures no child labor.
Commitment to SUSTAINABILITY COACHING
We are and will continue regularly meeting with a fashion sustainability consultant to see how we can improve and keep on improving.
We want to thank you for always asking the questions; keeping us accountable and challenging us to be better.
