ONE THREAD AT A TIME
Being Responsible is Cool
We take great pride in the products we create. For perspective, each article of clothing you see in our store, took us days if not weeks to create. That’s why we take waste very seriously and truly believe in recycling and ethical manufacturing. Less is more!
Elegance in Diversity
We are committed to the health and wellbeing of our patrons. We know that our promises will drive transparency so we promise you that you will find our brand to always encourage inclusion, representation and care for our community.
First of all, a valid question one could ask is ‘Why bother getting certified?’ Well, historically, the textile industry has been associated with environmentally harmful processing, has had challenges with animal welfare and to make matters worse, has had complex social compliance issue with child labor, workers’ compensation & benefits, as well as health & safety of staff. Transparency in values sets great companies apart from good ones. If you can’t tell, we are focused on great values!
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product. The standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content and labeling.
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety.
If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that every component of this article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, have been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless for human health. In many cases the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements.
