OUR SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAMME
Here are a few steps we wish to follow during our journey to ensure a more sustainable future for our brand.
- Ethical Supply Chain: Our aim is to ensure that our supply chain is transparent, fair, and ethical. This means working with suppliers who provide safe working conditions, fair wages, and respect human rights throughout the production process. Read more about our supply chain here.
- Sustainable Materials: We wish to prioritize using sustainable and eco-friendly materials in our products. This includes opting for organic, recycled, or upcycled fabrics and reducing the use of virgin materials. We also wish to explore innovative alternatives to conventional textiles, such as bio-based materials or fabrics made from renewable resources. This is a work in process. Read more about our materials here.
- Waste Reduction: We strive to minimize waste generation throughout our operations. This can be achieved by implementing measures to reduce fabric waste during production, encouraging recycling and upcycling of garments, and adopting packaging solutions that minimize environmental impact.

- Carbon Footprint Reduction: We wish to set targets to reduce our carbon emissions across the entire supply chain. This can involve using renewable energy sources in production facilities, optimizing transportation logistics to reduce emissions, and exploring carbon offset programs to mitigate the remaining emissions. Read more about our carbon footprint here.
- Circular Economy: We wish to embrace the principles of the circular economy by designing products with longevity in mind (“Made to last”). Our aim is to promote repairability, encourage customers to recycle or return old garments, and explore take-back programs to give used clothing a new life.
