ETHICAL WEAVING

We update our manufacturing equipment every year to weave in line with the demand and thus avoid any over-production of textiles. Our investments allow us to reduce the amount of unsold products significantly.

TEXTILE FINISHING

Water is essential to life and to our weaving and treatment process. We have our own sewage plant that ensures that the water we discharges into our local river is truly clean. The 750.000 bees on our production site are evidence of a well-preserved environment.
