Social Responsibility

Values

We are a female-founded, purpose driven small business and are committed to respecting our environment, the planet, partners, communities, and each other.

We believe in the importance of making a positive impact on the people, the environment and the communities across our supply chain.

We embrace ethical partnerships including artisan collectives, support businesses that empower women, and prioritise fair treatment and protection of workers and artisans.

Our vision is to create transparent, ethical and sustainable global supply chains supporting and empowering artisans by working with them directly to create mutually beneficial relationships and ensure the legacy of handcrafts continue.

 

 

 


Sustainability

We endeavour to source, produce and dispose of resources ethically and sustainably.

With respect of our planet and environment we continually strive for best practice.

We use recycled materials as much as possible for our packaging.

Producing in small batches, we aim to sell out before we create more beautiful products.

 


Materials

Leather is a natural, durable and beautiful product. Our leather is a by-product of the food industry and is sourced from Italy, India and China. We use full grain cow leather, the highest quality which has the most luxurious feel.

Our leather goods manufacturer is located in Delhi, India, we have visited the workshop which is a clean, modern and well organised facility.

We have independent people who visit our team to assess working conditions, manufacturing processes and to see our goods being made.

It is a friendly, open team with a very collaborative environment. They are members of Sedex and have up to date audits in place.

 

 

 

Our raffia and straw are organic, renewable and sourced with respect to the environment.

We work with a basketry cooperative in Morocco which brings together over 200 women artisans.

The cooperative's leading principle is to help women, who are often in precarious situations, to be financially independent by providing them with a stable income in an ideal work environment.
