Handmade process allows us the pleasure of personally working with local artisans and small factories, creating jobs and sustainable incomes around the world. We are committed to sustainable manufacturing practices and celebrate traditional craftsman techniques.
The design process starts in our Southern California based HQ, then our artisans in India and Bali are who make our fabrics and designs come to life. Our wholesale business is cut to order, eliminating as much overproduction as possible. All of our partners are chosen carefully and we personally work with them to ensure standards are consistently met. There is a tremendous amount of precision and detail involved in every step of each process to make our products. All of the items we provide are created with expertise, precision, and are consciously made to be cherished. Our leftover fabric and leather from production is saved and used for future small projects. Our makers use their mastery to create items unlike anything else with intention, integrity, and purpose. We know the importance of being transparent with how our products are made. We want to share with you these processes so we can point out the areas we need to work on. It is because of these unparalleled heritage crafts, is able to thrive and continue this unmatchable, magical process of creating items that will be adored for many generations. This is why we design our products directly from our hearts, because things made with love and intention are meant to last.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and improve the lives of everyone, everywhere. The team has committed to those which we feel we can drive progress towards. This is our pledge to use the framework set out by the United Nations to help shift our world to a better planet for all.
UN SDG 12 Responsible Consumption and Production patterns are crucial to creating less waste. With roughly 65% of a product’s impacts being at the design stage, we take into account each and every detail to make all of our products with as little to no mistakes as possible. Having a reliable team abroad plays a huge role in the success of our products and the clean production process they provide to make our products. By continuing these heritage artisan practices we are able to uplift these makers and properly admire their traditional art of creating textiles for years to come.We believes strongly in the importance of goal 12 and how these efforts can truly shift the world for the better.
