Carbon Neutral

1

We have taken steps to make our business carbon-neutral with the help of Carbon Fund, a nonprofit that provides carbon offsetting and greenhouse-gas-reduction options to businesses like ours. With their assistance, we are offsetting all of our directly managed usage, like shipping our garments all around the globe. Beyond our partnership, Carbon Fund also provides various projects within the reforestation and renewable energy efforts playing an important role in the fight against climate change.

Material

2

Our fabrics are always made of 100% biodegradable silk. We exclusively embellish with silk threads, ribbons, and glass crystals, all of which are either biodegradable or recyclable. All of our paper goods, from our boxes to hand-written notes to the slender cotton pouches that hold our rose quartz crystals are composed of recycled materials and can, in turn, be recycled. We do use responsibly sourced ostrich feathers in our garments and are working toward replacing these with an even more sustainable alternative.

Artisans

Our artisans are key members of our family, and we are committed to providing fair wages for — and advocating for the fair treatment of — these workers. We are, and always will be, conscientious and adamant about paying our artisans above market value and providing them with opportunities for upward growth. We always guarantee elevated, spacious working conditions.
