| EVERY COMPONENT OF OUR CREATIONS HAVE BEEN CAREFULLY SELECTED DUE TO THEIR IMPACT AND REGENERATIVE CAPACITY |
THE PLANT-BASED ALTERNATIVE
We use a cutting edge plant based leather alternative to create our accessories, B-Corp Certified Pinatex. Unlike synthetic "vegan or faux leather" that used to be called "pleather and are plastic based, which ends up killing ocean life and highly environmentally damaging, our material has a natural source. Discarded plants are up-cycled from existing pineapple industries and turned into a leather alternative using a patented technology that is a better choice for a better future. Plant-based materials are a better alternative to mass-produced synthetic leathers as the main component is not derived from fossil fuels. For every linear meter of Pinatex produced 12kg of carbon dioxide is saved from being released into the atmosphere. We really urge you to look at the material composition of products you purchase, maybe like us you will be surprised to learn that most materials that are marketed as sustainable are not...
Durable, light weight, sun and water-resistant, our material requires no additional environmental resources to produce. For every square meter purchased, we save 8kgs of carbon dioxide and equivalent toxins from being emitted into the atmosphere whilst bringing additional income to local farmers.
RAW ORGANIC 'PEACE’ SILK
We are proud to be the only luxury brand to use organic raw peace silk for the interior lining of our designs. This conscientious and beautiful material is a cruelty-free alternative that allows the silkworm to emerge out of the cocoon naturally. Fibres from the damaged cocoon are then spun together forming a silk that has the same luxurious feel to organic silk, but with a lined and more unique finishing, looking perfectly imperfect!
Our timeless 18ct gold plated and 925 sterling silver plated brass hardware is moulded in-house and finished with our signature logo.

We have chosen use brass hardware throughout our designs due to its up-cycling capabilities.
