To limit our ecological impact and our carbon footprint, we try to make use of all available local resource. In the workshop, to avoid producing a lot of waste we reuse and recycle whatever we can.
We use mainly natural fabrics such as cotton and viscose that are taken from extras generated by large factories. From these dormant stocks we choose the finest qualities. Using these fabrics allows us to avoid emitting new waste which is inherent when new fabrics are produced. 95% of the fabrics are certified Oekotex therefore are harmless to the environment. Some fabrics are also certified BCI (Better Cotton Initiative).
That's why our quantities per style are limited, but we do re-edit our masterpieces over the seasons without losing quality. For our accessories, we use raphia and zebu horn, two traditional local materials available on site.
Raphia is a vegetable fiber, traditionally used to manufacture home textiles and clothing. Its quality and flexibility allows us to create very pretty accessories whether for the beach or for the city. We respect the seasonality of the material, and we only buy during the harvest to allow crops to regenerate.
