SUSTAINABILITY

I'm committed in analyzing the positive and negative effects of every stage of a product’s life cycle. It’s an ongoing process to improve with every collection by keeping a small controlled supply chain. It's the easiest way to analyze my overall impact on the environment and society.

 

Slow fashion

We present limited collections because the bags are made with care and to last. I aim to be environmentally friendly by producing fewer new items. It means designing pieces that suit my lifestyle and are not time-bound. The best way to reduce the carbon footprint of any item is to wear it for a long time.

Fabrics

When possible, the cotton is organic and Okie-Tex certified. I source my fabrics from a Canadian supplier to keep my supply chain small. By picking organic cotton, I help to reduce the use of pesticides, support better health conditions for the farmers growing the crops, protect the surrounding land and wildlife.

Raw materials

I use overstock from a local tannery to reduce my carbon footprint, create less waste, and avoid the use of more production chemicals.

Local production

I've started local production of face masks to re-invest in my community and minimize the carbon footprint of the supply chain. 

International production

I work with a small family-owned factory in Eastern China. I've known the owner for years and personally visited the facility to guarantee healthy working conditions and fair wages. I want to explore supply chain models that support fair working conditions in developing countries.

Packaging

I use recycled paper boxes, stuffing, and shipping articles. Reusable fabric or zip pouches are provided for storage with each item.

Repairs

If something breaks, check with us to get it repaired. Keeping and wearing an item is the best way to reduce its carbon footprint post sale.

BLM Commitment

As a black woman of Haitian descent, I want to do my best to support my community with the tools I have. 15% of my sales will be donated to local organizations supporting the black community.
