sustainability and do good
Nurturing Nature the Way She Nurtures Us
The delicate pieces of lingerie we create are skillfully handcrafted by experienced seamstresses at our workshops in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and Dalian, China. Before partnering with any workshop, we personally visit and ensure that comfortable working conditions are maintained. Our seamstresses in Vietnam work in a modern, air-conditioned office, while our Chinese workshop adheres to stringent quality control standards set by their Japanese clientele.
Good Supplier Relationships
We have established strong relationships with our lace and hardware suppliers, who share our commitment to sustainability. These partners understand our vision we are grateful to have found reliable suppliers who align with our values.
Lingerie & Materials
While it's not possible for lingerie to be made entirely from natural materials due to the inclusion of necessary components like hardware and straps, we take a two-fold approach to sustainability. Our lingerie produced in Ho Chi Minh City may not always be fully traceable, but we prioritize supporting the livelihoods of over 20 people involved in our business. On the other hand, our lingerie crafted in Dalian, China, uses OEKO-TEX 100 certified materials, including natural fibers whenever possible.
Refurbishments & Fit Corrections
We believe in extending the lifespan of our lingerie. To achieve this, we offer minor refurbishing services for worn-out pieces and assist with fit corrections such as band adjustments or strap changes. We understand that bodies change, and we are committed to helping our customers find the right fit and prolong the life of their lingerie. We have mended over 1500 pieces of lingerie to date, promoting sustainability through longevity.
Our packaging reflects our commitment to sustainability. Orders are packed in reusable satin bags, perfect for travel or storage.
Our Signature Tote Bags given out in store will soon become your lunch buddy, gym companion, yoga pal and even handy travel mate. Ladies love them, toddlers love them even more.
Our paper and gift box packaging are made from recycled paper, and will only be given when requested.
