As a planet positive atelier we are conscious of the numerous ways our actions impact the environment and wildlife, including our shipping and packaging system.
Our supply chain does not end once the product is ready and in your hands. We believe that the end of our supply chain coincides with the end-of-life of product and packaging and as a result it is our collective responsibility to ensure that safe, conscious and circular end-of-life "disposal" systems are in place for both product and packaging.
We constantly try to reduce our carbon footprint and only use earth-friendly packaging materials for shipping our products.
Our packaging materials are 100% free from single use plastics. Like our products, each component of our packaging is recyclable and/or biodegradable and non-toxic to both flora and fauna. ⠀
All our garments and accessories come nestled in our signature, complimentary organic cotton gift sacs that are handcrafted at the atelier. These are glorious for gifting and storing your silks.
Our shipping + gift boxes are handcrafted from recycled materials, can be beautifully reused and are further biodegradable and recyclable.
Our packaging paper, hang tags and love notes are made from FSC certified and/or recycled paper.
We use a beautiful paper tape that uses water to active a secure starch-based adhesive to seal our boxes, thus eliminating the need for plastic tape.
Garment Bags and Mailers
We have collaborated with a brilliant Indian firm to sustainably and effectively replace the “single-use plastic element” in packaging. Our garment bags and mailers look like conventional plastic but contain no plastic whatsoever.
Made from vegetable starch, resins and other natural additives, our mailers are 100% recyclable, biodegradable and compostable in nature.
They beautifully protect your garments and accessories during transit and can be re-used. Our mailers biodegrade within 5-6 months leaving no toxic residue and are safe if accidentally consumed by animals.
We encourage you to work with us to re-use the packaging elements as much as possible and when the time comes, to responsibly recycle or "dispose" them as intended.
