Packaging

Materials

Sometimes papers are marked as recycled when they actually contain up to 50% virgin wood pulp. We aren't paper experts - We barely know our NAPM from our HMSO which is why we use a local social enterprise to take care of all the hard work for us. We trust their knowledge and trust that when they tell us our paper is made from post consumer waste that it really is. 

Some of our packaging can't be made from 100% recycled paper so when this happens we choose the least impactful option. 

Around 180 billion clear plastic poly bags are produced globally every year. The fashion industry is a huge contributor to that number with it's usage of garment bags. We have decided to forego the usual garment bags and opt for paper bags or boxes when transporting our garments from the factory to the studio. When we have poly bags from other suppliers, we ensure we reuse them and recycle where feasible. 

Processes

Where possible, we source all our packaging from local suppliers to reduce our carbon footprint and help our local economy. 

For printing, we use a process called Risograph to print our swing tags and stationary. It's as sustainable as printing can be as it doesn't use any solvents or toners. We also use Soya based inks instead of Petroleum based inks which are kinder on the environment.
