sustainability

Sustainability is at the forefront of all that we do. From design to production and packaging, we aim to minimize waste, encourage conscious and thoughtful consumerism, and increase the longevity of your garment. 

 

Natural Plant Fibers

Our linen comes from an Oeko-Tex certified mill. This means that the fabric has been tested and ensures it is free from any substances that could be harmful for human health, or to the environment. 

Linen is a natural fiber. Made from the woven fibers of a flax plant, linen is recyclable and biodegradable. Flax requires very little water and virtually no pesticides or fertilizers to grow, and can be grown even in nutrient-poor soil that is not suitable for food production. This makes linen one of the most sustainable fabrics on the market!

Packaging

Mailers: We use paper mailers made from 100% recycled material. Our mailers are also full recyclable and biodegradable. 

Business Cards: Our cotton business cards are made from 100% recycled t-shirt off cuts! Just another way we strive to reduce fashion industry waste. 

Stickers: Full disclosure, our stickers are made from vinyl and are therefore not the most sustainable option. We chose these because they were durable and waterproof, but have since found a better option so will not be re-ordering these once they're gone!

Twine: Jute twine is made from the stem of the jute plant and is therefore naturally biodegradable. The spool that our twine comes on is made from 100% recycled materials. 

Shipping Labels: Our shipping labels feature zero waste release liners (the part that keeps the label from sticking until you're ready to apply them). The release liner is made with 100% post-consumer waste and is recyclable. The paper part of the label is also made from 100% post-consumer waste and is also fully recyclable. 

Production

All items are handcrafted by me in my home studio in Vancouver BC.
