Speaking the Language of Sustainability

 


We constantly seek accessible options from suppliers, in line with our belief that we can create beautiful and desirable products responsibly.

Our design team devotes time to researching, finding and sourcing sustainable fabrics and the latest production methods that ensure a relationship with trusted certified providers. Thanks to the combination of traditionally sought-after products, innovation and science, we can take many exciting steps towards a better future with a supplier industry that is attentive to new demands.

As a company that does not use raw materials derived from animals, we use only faux fur and vegan leather in our outerwear and clothing.

 The suppliers we seek are selected among those who have high standards in sustainable materials and production processes. This combination between innovative design and sustainability enables us to move towards a greener and more ethical fashion industry for the future. 

While we always strive for a better world, we will continue to work to protect natural resources and respect animal rights.
