Alongside humans and nature, there's another important group who shouldn't bleed for our products. Animals. We are against inhumane, unecological mass factory farming. The traceability of animal derived materials is currently close to impossible. That's why we do completely without any animal derived products in our production. Instead of leather, we use cork and paper; pearl or horn buttons are replaced by wood or corozo; down is categorically rejected as an insulating material and is replaced by a recycled material made from PES.
However organic farming, which doesn't use strong pesticides or herbicides, helps to make sure that neither humans nor animals come into contact with toxic chemicals. Insects, such as bees or butterflies, which make such a valuable contribution to our sensitive ecosystems, are protected.
We are proud to have been one of the first labels to be awarded by PETA with the Progress Award as an animal friendly clothing line in 2011 as well as being one of the many 'PETA Approved Vegan' labels.
