Responsibly Sourced 925 Sterling Silver
The gift that keeps on giving.
We source our metal from an Australian mill that includes scraps from jewellers and other sources. Their advanced manufacturing process uses less energy and gas than conventional process, as well as recycled water.
This means fewer resources are used to create our jewellery, and we love that the metal was once used for another purpose. Now, you can create a new story.
Meet the chemical-free poster boy.
Hemp is a powerhouse fibre that requires very little water, no pesticides or herbicides during cultivation and is transformed into yarn through the help of natural biological enzymes (a chemical free process). Bonus points when 1 acre of industrial hemp = as much fibre as 4 acres of trees or 2 acres of cotton.
Hemp fibres are three times stronger than cotton. So even without the psychedelic properties of its cousin, it's still bad ass in our books.
The Madonna of the fabric world - it keeps on making a comeback.
Linen's fibres are sourced from the flax plant which is the second most highly productive crop after hemp. Conventional linen requires far less water during cultivation than cotton and few pesticides or fertilisers. Best of all, every part of the flax plant can be used across different industries, which means zero waste and cost-effective production.
It's claim to fame is that, unlike cotton, Linen that is loved & cared for can last up to three decades. That's a lot of Summer parties.
Tencel™ (Lenzing Lyocell)
Making waves in the textile industry, Tencel was developed in Germany and is one of the first closed loop fibres.
It's made from sustainably sourced eucalyptus tree farms with no need for harmful pesticides & minimal water. This new age textile has earned it's bragging rights by recovering & re-using or decomposing all solvents and emissions during its non-toxic production process.
Tencel's superpower is eliminating the dumping of waste by 99%. Pretty cool huh.
We appreciate that zippers won't biodegrade, so if it's going to stick around it should last the test of time.
YKK zippers originate from Japan and have set the benchmark for their strength. They are dyed using a unique ECO-DYE® technology that reduces of the amount of water used to almost zero. Not bad.
Our flax (linen fibres) is sourced from France and Belgium and sent to China to be milled. Our hemp and organic cotton fabric is grown and manufactured in the Henan, Shanxi, Gansu and Heilongjiang provinces of China. Some of the organic cotton in our blended fabric originated in Turkey and India.
We partner with suppliers who have the same ethos at their core – sustainability, minimal environmental impact and fair working conditions throughout their supply chain.
