Sustainability is our goal – let us tell you why!
Our biggest inspiration for everything we do is nature and its vast amount of decorative patterns, beautiful colours and exciting materials. However, we know that nature needs to be taken care of. We tend to think of it as, every time you take a little, you have to give a little. This is sustainability to us. The earth needs to be taken care of and we want to make a stand – we want to be a part of the journey towards a cleaner and better Earth.

Let’s create sustainable living spaces together!

THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS - WE WANT TO ACT TOO
The world is rapidly changing and the way we consume goods change too. We want to be a part of the process and motivate people to act in sustainable and responsible ways. The best way to do so is to make sure that our own actions meet the requirements of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. However, we know that this is a big step for both every people and companies around the world. Therefore, we start in our journey towards a greener future with small steps. Our own first steps are to follow Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production & Goal 15: Life on Land.
GOAL12: ENSURE A SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION
We are always in close dialogue with our suppliers to make sure, that their production of our products has a minimal impact on the environment. In this way we have more control over our footprint on the planet and at the same time can offer you home décor items that you can consume with a good conscious. We believe that every resource should be spent in a sustainable and efficient way.
GOAL15: HALT AND MANAGE FOREST DEGRADATION
As several of our products are produced by wood and other natural materials, we believe that we have a responsibility to only use materials that have been carefully chosen by our suppliers. These materials must be produced with a focus on using fast growing tree sorts, like for example, bamboo, rattan, or abaca. We make sure that our suppliers do not cut down forest fast than it can regrow. This ensure that there are enough trees to store the carbon dioxide released from the production.
SOFT OEKO-TEX® TEXTILES - MADE WITH CARE
Your health is of great matter to us! We love textiles, but we love textiles which have not been processed with any harmful chemicals even more. The OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certifications are very important to us as it make sure that we can offer you product of a high quality without compromising on the materials. All our hand towels and inner cushions have this certificate.

CREATE YOUR OWN STORY - FIND THE RIGHT MATERIALS
Like a house, the building materials are what create a remarkable home. The materials for a lot of our products have carefully been chosen to have the smallest impact on the environment. Fast-growing tree sorts like bamboo, rattan, abaca, and mango trees are some of our favourites. When a tree is cutdown a new is planted.
What kind of material do you want your home décor items to be made of?

PACKAGING FROM RESPONSIBLE SOURCES - FSC®
Every parcel that we send out from our warehouse here in Nibe will be packed in FSC®-certificated packaging. We believe this is the first step in the right direction in terms of having warehouse activities with a lesser amount of CO2 footprint.
Everybody must start somewhere! – do you want to be a part of our journey? By receiving parcels in packaging of FSC®-certificated source, you make sure that the amount of wood being cutdown do not exceed the amount that foresters can plant and regrow. Everything have to be in balance!
