In an effort to be more transparent, we aim to provide with as much information as possible about the materials we use. We also hope that in doing so will provide you with more possibilities of protecting and caring for your products, to maximise their lifespan.
We strive to explore innovative ways to remain eco-friendly and sustainable, including the materials we use.
Minimising our impact on the earth is something important to us, and we are constantly trying to find ways to minimise our impact without comprimising the quality of our products. This includes looking beyond just making a durable product, but considering its’ lifespan holistically.
