PRODUCTION AND SUPPLIER RELATIONSHIPS


Where are your clothing produced?

Our clothing are produced in Portugal, Lithuania, Italy, India and China. Our handmade items are made in Denmark.



How do you ensure prime labor condition? 

We have a close relationship with our manufacturers and are drawn to handcrafted, quality items made by real knitters and people with generation of experience. To ensure prime labor condition we work with several certifications, along with our suppliers: GOTS, BSCI, OEKO-TEX, SEFEX SMETA and FSC. All our suppliers have signed our Code of Conduct. 



ON DEMAND AND SUSTAINABILITY


What is on-demand fashion? 

On-demand production is an innovative model to diverge from fast fashion’s traditional routine of producing clothes that are not sold. Unsold items are the main problem of the tons of generated textiles waste in the world. With an On-demand model we only produce clothes that are already sold.



How is on-demand fashion sustainable?

On-demand is overall a more sustainable way to produce. It does not only eliminate waste but is also a slower way of production with an eye for the craftsmanship behind the product. On-demand allows for the clothes to be made in high quality and to give the clothes a longer active life.



Is on-demand the future of fashion? 

Fast fashion is about consuming all trends at once and consuming cheaply. Seeing fashion as a way of art has lost its meaning over the years. The on-demand concept honors the craftmanship of fashion – and even though it means customers must wait for the styles they desire; more and more consumers believe on-demand is a responsible alternative.
