Sustainability

The tasks are raised for our designers: to make products that do not have a seasonal feel, products that people will not want to throw away.

These luxury items must be supported by positive values, which include not only traditional ways of production – using natural, high quality and often locally sourced materials that are transformed by the precise craftsmanship of skilled artisans, but also love of innovation and a sense of respect for the environment throughout every stage of luxury product creation.

The brand aims to prove that it is possible to make a high quality products without harming the environment by exploring and making responsible choices in selecting materials, technologies, production processes, as well as caring for the environmental impact and labourer welfare.
