-Because fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world, our commitment goes beyond garments-
We believe that the only way to tackle the impact of such an overwhelming industry is to stand for solutions that can signify reducing negative impact as much as possible. Thus, we constantly reinforce environmental care within our company, where we tackle challenges such waste management, by recycling all sort of resources and materials used along the process (energy, waste, water). We also demand that we get certified textiles, so that we can be sure that no pesticides or toxics were utilized, and that all raw material comes from other Peruvian companies that share the same values.
Caring for our employers is something that we strongly emphasize at our company. Since we believe that achieving high quality in our products means first and foremost building up a high quality relationship among our employers. At first stance, we pursue this by making sure that we match all legal regulations regarding fair and decent wages, health and safety regulations, no child labour, no forced labour, and in peak times we ensure that we are paying all extra hours to our workers. On the second hand, we also commit to stimulate growth inside the company by sharing with our employers activities such social environmental days, free English language lessons or simply share a party altogether.
"The brand's design goal is to create long-lasting pieces which can be versatile and easy to combine"
Down to the true cost of every garment, garments come with an aesthetic and functional quality; pieces that do not belong merely to seasonal trends, but rather, they belong to a functional wardrobe which consists of versatile pieces meant to endure.
We are also realistic about the fact that creating sustainable products with less negative impact on the planet is a long route that needs time and a critical mindset in order to be fully achieved. Hence, we are committed to reflect and grow along our design and making process in order to improve each collection not just on the aesthetic, but especially in taking mindful choices.
