Care and consideration go into sourcing and creating each product we carry. From beginning to end, our goal is to tread lightly on our beautiful planet.
We are students of sustainability.
"Every choice we make collectively has a far-reaching impact on our planet. Therefore, we strive each day to learn and enhance our processes for the better. Simple choices, like opting for 100% recycled, post-consumer recycled materials and FSC-certified papers and packaging, are part of our daily operations. We also tackle more complex decisions, such as exclusively using FSC-certified wood for our custom-made ribbon spools. To eliminate the use of harmful wood finishes, we continue to endure the labor-intensive process of manually buffing each wooden spool.
We select products that are crafted with care and attention to environmental concerns. For instance, our handmade papers are crafted from repurposed T-shirt remnants, and chlorine or chemicals are strictly avoided in the production process; this allows the runoff water to be reused for watering neighboring gardens.
Our cotton and organic silk textiles are hand-woven using time-honored methods from raw hand-spun natural materials. Our classic silk fabrics and silk accessories are sourced from GOTS-certified manufacturers. GOTS operates on the principle of holistic sustainability in the textile industry, examining both environmental and social aspects in its evaluations. This comprehensive assessment encompasses the investigation of chemical inputs used, as well as ensuring the ethical treatment of workers.
The details matter to us! We are committed to keeping an open dialogue and continuing to learn and grow as our sustainable mission evolves. If you have ideas to share, we'd love to hear from you!
