"Waste is a design flaw"
It is estimated that the fashion industry produces 60 Billion metres squared of cutting room floor waste. We don’t like to see fabric go to waste. Every scrap counts. That’s why we donate our textile offcuts that are left over from production to local balinese women. These women recycle our offcuts and use them to weave “rag rugs” that they can sell. This provides an income for their families. Then we buy some and use them…and it all goes around! We love that our waste is recycled and turned into something so useful and beautiful!
“it’s only one straw” said 8 billion people.
Plastic. We all know by now that this is one of the worlds biggest ecological and environmental disasters that humans are STILL contributing to. Plastics can take up to 1000 years to degrade. And it never fully degrades, rather it breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces that are eventually ingested by marine life.
The fashion industry contributes a huge amount to the worlds plastic problem. Imagine the billions of items of clothing being distributed to stores in poly bag slips each year. Add to that items delivered to online purchasers in plastic postal satchels. Just think on that for a moment.
This is why we have decided to say no to plastic in our operations as a brand. All our packaging is made from recycled or biodegradable materials. We package our items in non plastic slips made from Cassava plant. Yup, Plant based packaging that is fully compostable! Also, our online customers receive their purchases in compostable, non plastic postal satchels.
