Next Steps in your sustainable path

Here below the goals that the brand aims to achieve in the near future:
Check Status
Raw Materials
We would love to create a cradle to cradle process. Starting from the design and Product Development, choosing biodegradable or easily upcycled raw material and accessory.
in progress
Production
We would love to create some collections realized by NGO and other social associations. Firstly, I would like to collaborate with GELSO Sartoria Sociale or SAN VITTORE, because both realities help people to find a new life and be reintegrated in the society.
in progress
Donation, charity and awareness campaign
With our beachwear collection we will support Legambiente.
in progress
Circular economy
The first step for us will be to strengthen our communication and create a proper educational channel for customers to better understand and make their clothes last (we're working on that at the moment), as well as creating a repair service, a second-hand store for our clothes and a recycling/upcycled program for things at the end of their life cycle.
