Transparency is very important in sustainable companies. In our opinion, this is the way to build a trusting relationship with our customers. We are as transparent as we can be. What we say about our process for making our clothes is true as there are no investors involved in the process. We control and know all processes because we know everyone who is involved on it
More quality and less quantity. We produce really small quantities, and this is for us the first rule to be sustainable. So, our efforts go to quality and we know what’s quality is in fashion industry because we are part of it as producers. We do everything we can to offer you the best materials, more durable, functional and beautiful and we are always improving.
Everything that we produce is made in the North of Portugal. We have a small sewn company with 12 people working. The other suppliers are really close to us (20km maximum). We know everyone involve on the process to make our clothes by the name (and not just a picture once per year saying “You make my clothes” with somebody sitting in a sewn machine).
The North of Portugal has a big tradition in the textile industry and is also known for the high quality. The textil market here in Portugal is composed by 77,8% of micro companies with less than 10 people working. When you are buying from brands like us, you are supporting micro business and entire families.
An important issue to be sustainable is to be an independent brand. We don't have pressure from investors or even pressure from being a big brand. This make us be part of slow fashion, slow to do the clothes with love, with time and most important without pressure to the people that work with us. We believe that as society we need to slow down.
|Plastic free: we proudly do not use plastic to pack our clothes. Our boxes and hangtags are made with recycled paper. We also don't use an external company to do the storage and sending, so, we pack our clothes and we send them to you.|
|Organic and recycled cotton: This is the material that we use to do our clothes. The yarn from organic cotton comes from India (most of the cases), and then is transformed into cotton fabric for textile in Portugal. Organic cotton and recycled cotton are a good alternative for conventional cotton.|
Reuse: It's really important that you are part of the sustainability process. Use as long as you can our clothes. After that, try to reuse them. You just need to be creative for it.
