04. Good Things Take Less
We pride ourselves in stocking brands where upcycling and recycling plays a fundamental role in their production line. In recycling materials like glass, wood and textiles we’re minimising waste by giving them a second life. Deadstock refers to unused fabrics and textiles, often a result of companies over-ordering. In repurposing these textiles destined for landfill, we're reducing textile waste and conserving the energy that would be expended in the production of new textiles. In order for brands to meet this value their goods must be made from 80% recycled materials or dead stock.
05. Good Things Last a Lifetime
In our minds, quality over quantity always wins. Globally we’re consuming 400% more than we were just two decades ago. With an increase in consumption comes an increase in waste. We pride ourselves in stocking high quality pieces that last a lifetime.
06. Good Things Are Kind
A quarter of the chemicals produced in the world are used in textiles. Natural fibres like organic cotton, linen and wool are free from these nasty chemicals – making them a kinder choice for our skin and the planet.
Synthetic fibres like polyester and nylon aren't biodegradable. Instead, they break down into tiny microplastics, making their way into our oceans, threatening marine wildlife and ending up in our food supply. In comparison, when buried in soil, wool, cotton and linen can degrade in just a few weeks.
In order for a brand to meet this value, their products must comprise of 100% natural fibres.
