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.
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.
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.
sahroo’s low-impact mission extends to our artisans, who implement low-waste policies in regard to practices like fabric conservation and reuse of dyes. Each garment is only ever worked on by singular artisans, who solely utilize their hands, their skill, and their personal sewing machine; no production-line, high-energy use, or high-waste practices go into hand-crafting your sahroo.
As part of our commitment to mindful luxury, we release only 100 garments per look, all of which are made-to-order. This practice allows us to further honor nature, from the elimination of product waste during production to the prevention of the market flooding with any one piece, thus retaining the heirloom individuality of each sahroo garment.
With catastrophic ecological disasters such as the wildfires raging in Siberia and across the Amazon rainforest, leading to never-before-seen forest destruction, we’re doubling our efforts at planting — in our long-standing partnership with One Tree Planted — going forward sahroo now pledges to plant 10 trees planted per order.
