Our promise is we use only Sustainable Materials. We handpicked these because they either reduce pollution, bring back the biodiversity, sourced sustainably, or preserves an art form.
Inlay Marble Buttons | Art of Pacchikari
Handmade in The City of Taj Mahal Agra, India. The unique art of Pacchikari or marble inlay. Made using industrial waste.
With our Marble inlay button, we aim to preserve and modernise the art, generate employment in the poor community, and remembering our extinct animals.
Our iconic inlay buttons feature Kuku, The Carolina Parakeet bird that is now extinct due to hunting. Its beautiful colorful feathers were used to make hats. Kuku’s engraving on the button is a reminder to love our biodiversity and let this not happen to another co-resident of our planet.
We use only genuine Swarovski clear crystals in our buttons.
From Oceans Plastic & Landfills
ECONYL® Regenrated Nylon
ECONYL® regenerated nylon is made out of the waste that has been rescued from landfills and oceans around the world. It performs exactly the same as brand new nylon and it can be recycled, recreated, and remoulded again and again.By using recycled nylon our motive is to reduce the pollution and convert it into a useful resource. Econyl® yarn is certified with REACH, OEKO-Tex Standard 100, and many more.
We use Econyl® because it reduces ocean and landfill pollution.
Recycled Cotton Linter
Bemberg is the brand name for cupro, which is regenerated cellulose fiber made from cotton linter, a raw material that is pre-consumer waste. The linter that is not normally used as fibre, is transformed into pure regenerated fibre that is biodegradable and eco-friendly.
We use Cupro because it is biodegradable and is a product of waste turned into a resource.
Organic Peace Silk
Non-violent silk, Ahimsa Silk or Peace Silk, is produced from cocoons without killing the pupae inside or without sacrificing animal life. Cocoons are all allowed to hatch and breed, and the silk is processed from the hatched cocoons. In some cases, the cocoons can be pierced or cut open and the butterfly tipped out.
Our Organic Peace silk is GOTS, OneCert International organic standard certified. Our silk is sourced from India where our supplier has been able to successfully bring back biodiversity using organic sericulture practices.
We use Organic Peace silk because it is cruelty-free, restores biodiversity, generates employment in a very poor community and encourages organic practices.
