Responsibly Sourced

As part of our commitment to positively contributing to the natural environment, we’ve chosen to use sustainable materials to craft our products.

We’ve chosen to work with and responsibly source these materials from artisans who are eco conscious themselves, as well as promote economic empowerment in developing regions.

Sustainable Materials

🍃 Bamboo + Coconut

Bamboo is fully biodegradable, sustainable and natural. It is naturally anti-bacterial and requires no chemicals or pesticides and very little water to harvest.

Bamboo is fast-growing and can be harvested in one to five years, compared to hardwoods like oaks trees which take at least 40 years before they can be harvested. It also self-regenerates from its own roots, so it doesn’t need to be replanted.

Coconut palm wood is resource gentle, only using dead palm wood trees. This utilises what otherwise would have been waste produce, as well as creates space for new palm trees and growth of fresh coconuts.

Over one million acres of forests are lost each week due to deforestation and bamboo and coconut as a sustainable alternative to hardwood can contribute to drastically reducing these numbers and protecting our forests.

🍃 Organic Cotton

We use Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton that is farmed with no toxic chemicals, sustains the health of soils and uses 88% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton.

Growing organic cotton uses natural processes instead of exposure to toxic chemicals, keeping farmers, their families, food and water supply safe. This also means farmers are able to grow more than one crop which supplements their food and diversifies their income.

Responsibly Sourced

🍃 Bamboo + Coconut

Our bamboo and coconut is sustainably sourced and handcrafted by local farmers from a small farming village in the Thanh Hoa province of Vietnam.

Harvesting bamboo is empowering rural communities by providing local rice farmers diversity of income, whilst protecting and improving the natural environment.

Plus, nothing is left to waste. The leftover bamboo residue is compressed and turned into a sustainable and clean energy source, for use in industries in the surrounding regions.

🍃 Organic Cotton

Our organic cotton is responsibly sourced from a women-run community in the Himalayan region.

The women take personal pride in crafting beautiful and natural textiles, and for some women it is their first opportunity gaining financial independence, negotiating with their families for hours worked.

As natural processes are used instead of exposure to toxic chemicals, this maintains a clean water supply and farmers are able to grow more than one crop which supplements their food and diversifies their income.

The production process is sustainable and certified as a B Corporation meeting the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance.
