We're in the process of developing our sustainability values and framework! This means looking at all points in our supply chain to see how we can support or enact positive ethical and environmental practices.
In the meantime, here's what we're already doing to be a conscious, ethical and sustainable brand.
It's a YES to sloowwww!
First and foremost, it's an accident if we are on trend! You won't find anything 'fast' about what we offer - everything is designed and made with simplicity of style and maximum colour explosion in mind (not what's currently 'in fashion'!). We hope you'll be able to find ways to love and wear our products for years, not just a season.
About our fabric
Our fabric is Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified, which provides you with a guarantee of the ethical status of the product; from harvesting of the raw organic cotton to its environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing into the fabric we use to make our garments. Find out more about what GOTS is here.
How we create
We order fabric in small batches and make our garments in runs of 20 – 50 at a time. This means your garment is not mass produced and can’t be found everywhere! It also means there is minimal fabric wastage. What off cuts we do have we keep and use for small projects such as scrunchies, headbands, hats or undies, or we give to other small businesses and our local school. If you have a need for fabric scraps, get in touch!
Where our making happens
Being a 'made in New Zealand' business is super important to us! You can feel good knowing that you are supporting local kiwi makers who are paid fairly and working to produce garments we hope you love and wear for a long time. Doing things this way means our production costs are much higher than if we made offshore and this directly impacts our pricing. We want people to understand more about the cost of doing things our way. It’s an ongoing challenge for us, but we also feel good knowing we’re supporting other local businesses by keeping our making in New Zealand.
Low impact delivery
We keep our customer packaging to a minimum. All shipments are packed using recyclable materials in compostable mailer packs. As we grow, we are looking at ways we can make our packing and delivery more sustainable. Keep your eye on what we are doing in this space.
