More sustainable materials. Whenever possible, and whilst focussing upon functionality and quality, the more than gifts collection is, where relevant, gradually upgraded or substituted with newer and more sustainable materials. This means selecting high quality materials that are recycled or lend themselves to recycling, materials derived from renewable sources and ethically sourced. The centrepiece of this is supporting our suppliers in implementing innovative processes to produce more sustainable materials.
Reduce waste. In the way we interact with our environment, unnecessary waste is no longer an option. Replacing disposable products made of non-renewable resources by reusable products or biodegradable materials is an important step forward. Also rethinking the way we pack and distribute goods give opportunities to reduce waste. As of 2018 we started to streamline box sizes and packaging methods in order to reduce the amount of polybags and cardboard used. Ongoing individual item packaging is being evaluated and streamlined to offer a smarter solution.

Recycled fabrics is made from waste fabrics (any textiles). Collected textile solid wastes are reprocessed to fibre and than back to fabrics for further re-production of bags, garments or linnen. Most of the manufacturers work with two streams : pre-consumer waste (scrap from production) and post-consumer waste (used textiles collected). The color segregation occurs during the process to avoid as much as possible the re-dyeing of the fabric.
