All of our items are produced in limited runs to eliminate waste and emissions.
We also hand-craft many of our items which is not only kinder to the environment but also allows us to ensure quality and pass a little bit of extra care onto you.
Flax, the plant from which linen is made, is extremely versatile.
Flax uses 13 times less pesticides than potatoes, but is only approximately 1% of the world’s apparel fiber consumption. Why is this so, you ask? Linen has so many great features - that’s why we love working with this material!
Every part of the flax plant has traditionally been used to create useful products; nothing is wasted, and production is cost effective. Flax is resilient and can grow in poor soil, using far less water in its consumption than cotton. According to the European Confederation of Linen and Hemp, “Across its lifecycle, a linen item uses 6.4 liters of water” compared to 2,700 liters for a cotton item. Wow!
Our lunch bags
No more single-use packaging! Make your packed lunch with your reusable lunch bag.
This handmade cotton lunch bag is made of sturdy cotton fabric with rough cloth on the outside and a smooth white coating on the inside gives the fabric strength and makes it waterproof, so you can clean and reuse it over and over again.
The vintage string-tie fastening has allowed us to avoid using any harmful chemicals and we make sure to use recycled materials as much as possible - the buttons are even made from coconut!
The Mosa bamboo that we use for Tribe grоwѕ naturally without the application of chemical fertilizers. This attests to its antifungal and antibacterial properties. It also means that we can cultivate Bamboo without harming the environment.
The extensive root ѕуѕtеm of Bamboo kеерѕ the ѕоіl соmрасt, thereby рrеvеntіng еrоѕіоn саuѕеd bу rainwater runoff.
An area of bamboo forest will рrоduсе up to 35% mоrе охуgеn than an equal area of hardwood forest.
An acre of a bаmbоо forest саn ѕtоrе over 19,000 gallons of wаtеr іn its culms throughout the rаіnу ѕеаѕоn. This is gradually dероѕіtеd bасk іntо thе ѕоіl during dry ѕеаѕоn, keeping the soil rich in moisture contents all year round.
For our colored Tribe, we only work with residual material.
They are made of acrylic, which is a transparent thermoplastic and is made from the derivation of natural gas.
Acrylic sheets do not contain any toxic materials or heavy metals. If acrylic burns, it does not produce toxic or corrosive gasses which are compliant with international standards.
Our City Maps and our other art prints are produced totally chlorine free and bleached (TCF) without any optical brightening agents (OBAs), the paper retains a natural uncoated feel with an off-white shade, ensuring its stylish appearance.

We use beads that are made of recycled glass as much as we can. The recycled glass is crushed down into a fine powder before being transformed into these beautiful ethnic beads for our Folk earrings.
