100% Natural Materials because we believe in the feeling and quality of natural materials, we as human beings are purely natural and that works better together.
We believe in and are convinced of the story and feeling that a natural product has, such as cotton, silk, wool, leather and cashmere if produced sustainably with an eye for the environment, which is ebbing away with chemical and synthetic materials.
For each product it is indicated which quality marks it has.
We take it as a goal, we are not there yet but it is our focus as much as possible wherever we can.
So the very best in materials, textiles and in the management of the company where the people work.
So that it always remains a win-win.
We do our best to strive for fair tariffs and trade.
Think of 100% organic cotton and recycled materials.
We prefer and love to choose handmade with craftmanship where possible.
In addition, we are attracted to traditional and handmade work where you feel the love, with an eye for detail.
For example with a velvet or satin weaving technique.
Think of certificates such as:
Global Organic Textile Standard
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed by leading standard setters to define world-wide recognised requirements for organic textiles. From the harvesting of the raw materials, environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing to labelling, textiles certified to GOTS provide a credible assurance to the consumer.
Is the internationally accepted standard with requirements for an environmental management system developed by the International Organization for Standardization.
The environmental management system is used to develop an environmental policy that is appropriate for the organization and to guarantee its implementation.
BSCI: Business Social Compliance Initiative
The Business Social Compliance Initiative is an initiative of companies committed to better working conditions in their global supply chain.
BSCI offers a common code of conduct and a roadmap to companies that applies to all sectors and production countries.
ISO 9001 is a standard that sets requirements for the quality management system of an organization.
FSC: Forest Stewardship Council
Forest Stewardship Council is a non-profit organization headquartered in Bonn, Germany. The organization was founded in Toronto in 1993 on the initiative of environmental organizations from 25 countries.
What is FSC? The international, independent FSC (Forest Stewardship Council®) label ensures that raw materials for wood and paper products come from responsibly managed forests.
Oeko-Tex Standard 100
A testing and certification system for textiles.
The standard focuses on limiting the use of harmful substances in relation to the health of the end user.
Although the label is therefore focused on health aspects of the textile product, the guidelines for the use of harmful substances also have interfaces with the ecological dimension of sustainability.
We always give generously to charities, you could say 5 to 10% of the turnover.
