We are committed to practical minimalism and are not fast-fashion supporters. Moreover, we value resources used to produce each item. That is why we prefer quality, not quantity. We do not offer free shipping, because there is no such thing as free shipping. Shipping always involves goods transportation, packaging materials and workforce. We pay due respect and seek to protect those who take part in the supply chain.
RESOURCE, REUSE, RECYCLE
We are sure that the production way implies responsibility, and the way of sustainable development involves a sustainable system. We value publicity and believe it is important to share our results to minimize industrial effects within the course of creation of the resource & waste management system.

All our products have service life of 3 years. We support reuse, and our designers’ solutions allow prolonged use of clothing or accessories. These solutions include multi-way models, items with up-flip cuffs, detachable and adjustable straps, articles with inside labels allowing multiple user name and phone indications. You can pass your clothes to the younger children or to those who need it.
We recommend to reuse bags used to package our products. We have developed a convenient zip-lock allowing to use our packaging for storage and transportation. We keep products having minor defects and avoid disposing of them, but rather repair them and sell at a lower price.
We advocate the “what-you-really-need approach” approach. That is why our product range is developed to allow for item combinations, and each collection is elaborated to support combining products from various collections. We share the commitment to natural resource conservation; therefore, we do not recommend frequent washing of our products. To clean off minor contaminations, it is enough to wipe our products with a damp cloth, which allows them to keep their appearance and functionality.
