SUPPLY CHAIN

85

/ 100

Made in

Germany, Poland.

Production

The whole production is outsourced to partner manufacturers.

Other production details

They keep stock levels low to avoid unsold stock. Some items are made-to-order.

Packaging / Packing

For their packaging they are using recycled paper and compostable mailers that are carbon negative, biodegradable and partly made from corn starch. No plastic whatsoever - even the tape they use is made from paper. They ship with minimal packaging using only the essential materials. No extra filling, as all material (also sustainable materials) uses our planets resources to produce.

This goes to everything from shipping your orders to deliveries between their suppliers and production partners - they avoid plastics every time possible. When it happens that they receive plastic they either give it back to the sender to reuse (while questioning their choice of material) or they reuse it somehow in the studio. They are not wasting it.

Shipping

Standard shipping solutions.

SOCIAL IMPACT

67

/ 100

Having 100% of their production in Europe strongly increases chances to have a product made in fair conditions.

Additional information

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

85

/ 100

Having 100% of their production in Europe reduces the environmental impact of the brand.

Circularity

They mostly use recycled materials.

Besides using surplus as main material for their products, they are committed to make the absolute most of these materials. They cut around small defects, and make their patterns in a way to minimise off-cuts.

Materials that they end up buying and not using for one reason or another, they donate or sell to other local creatives, or fully donate to art & education refugee projects located at Tempelhof Airport and S27.

Textile scraps from their production too small to use for any of their lingerie and swimwear designs and also too small to donate to any of such initiatives stated above, go to several other projects of their own; from small accessories, special patchworks and pillow filling.

Recyclability

- Products

Partly recyclable.

- Packaging / Packing

100% recyclable.

Additional information

They donate 50 cents to a charitable organization with every order made. In 2020 they supported Rainforest Rescue, an organization fighting to protect and regenerate the tropical rainforest, by organizing protests, purchasing land to block the expansion of plantations, reforesting cleared land and more.

Besides this, in 2020 they also partnered up with Drip by Drip , and donated 10% of sales made during “Black Friday week” to tackle water issues in Bangladesh caused by the fast fashion industry.
