Our Sustainability Story

Committed to a Sustainable Future

As a small brand, we know that there is no way for us to 'buy' ourselves out of this mess. But we do have the opportunity to implement changes to our lives to make a small difference as individuals. If we can all make a small difference this becomes a big collective change.

One of the ways to do this is to choose to support small and impact led businesses which are led by those who aim to protect the planet.

Another way is to buy slowly and choose items that last. 

Our work with local communities around the world enables us to support artisans and home crafts people in their own livelihoods. We are passionate about preserving traditional crafts and heritage that have been passed down from generations to generations.

Our Core Sustainability Pillars

  • Eco-Friendly Materials: We use natural, biodegradable and lower impact materials and practices to minimize our environmental footprint and impact on the planet. This is an evolving process which we always seek to improve and iterate.
  • Fair Trade Practices: Ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions for all is our priority, we choose slow and long term commitments over quick and easy wins and we work directly with local groups.
  • Supporting Minority Groups and Women: We prioritise working with minority led, women owned and indigenous cooperatives wherever possible and championing the work that they do. 
  • Transparency: Providing clear, detailed information about the origins and impact of our products. We only partner with brands and organisations who match our values.
  • Durability & Longevity: Creating high-quality items that are built to last, reducing the need for frequent replacements is key, we offer products built with excellence.
  • Circularity and Materials: We are implementing new products which have been created with waste fiber and zero-waste design principles. 
  • Championing Community Craft: We exist to build a network of people who champion handmade items and craft. Through our events and workshops we create community and enable craft to happen. 

Small Steps Forward

Whilst we are small but mighty, we are integrating practices to offset our emissions. To do so, we partner with the following organisations:  

  • We offset our shipping with Shopify Planet - find out about how we offset our shipping with Shopify Planet. Find out more, here.
  • For every purchase made, we plant a tree with Ecologi.

 

Our Plan for the Future

We are continually working to improve our work. Our future plans include expanding our range of handmade products, increasing our support for artisan communities, and educating our customers about the importance of sustainable living.

We have exciting plans to develop further projects with local artists and makers here, in the UK and work with social enterprises to develop this impact further.
