Our commitment to sustainability reaches from our artisan groups in Asia to our offices in the Chicago area. Locally we scrupulously recycle paper, packing material, and packaging - you'll often receive shipments from us in boxes we've received from our artisans or that we've reused from local suppliers.
Many of our products help decrease environmental impact because they're made from sustainable or recycled materials. And since all of our products are handmade (and often made in artisans' homes) they are not being produced in factories generating a sizeable carbon footprint. We try to source our products in partnership with the planet.
Specifically, we have a ever-growing line of jewelry and accessories that feature recycled Kantha textiles. We've also recently introduced other recycled textiles into our product line. As we increase the number of recycled or repurposed components our commitment will continue to grow.
