Sustainability

Clothing is sustainable when it is produced and consumed ecologically and fairly.
At "hope", sustainability is firmly anchored in the brand's vision and we strive to produce sustainably for people, the environment, animals and society.
  • All our items are made of natural, organic or recycled fibers.
  • Our yarns are GOTS® and OEKO-TEX® 100 certified.
  • For the production process, we cooperate with small Portugese factories who guarantee minimal CO2 emission (preferably CO2 neutral), limit the use of harmful washing, minimal water consumption (closed cycle) and have a good recycling policy. Some of the items are still handmade by myself.
  • Aware of the important social aspect of sustainability, we are also concerned with social responsibility, seeking to ensure that our entire production chain follows the good practices of Fair Trade.
  • Our timeless collections fits into a continuous concept to last over seasonal trends and can be worn for a long time, over-sized to start and fitted to end.
  • We take our time to source for good quality, so they can get a second life after your little ones have grown out. You can pass our timeless and gender neutral items to siblings or the second hand distribution.
  • We avoid replacing or throwing out good quality clothes at discount prices at the end of the season. Our basics will stay in the collection many years.
  • Our paper materials are made with paper from responsible sources (FSC label) and our overseas shipments are carbon neutralized via DHL's GoGreen offset program.
  • We try to reduce our waste and the use of plastic. We use reusable packagings whenever it is possible.

We carefully select fabrics and raw material with a minimal impact on our planet.
