SUSTAINABILITY

With the rising demand on sustainable clothing, one of our main aims is to contribute to the cyclical textile movement to minimize the carbon footprints with the choices of our materials, energy saving machines & equipment and production techniques.

1. MATERIALS
All of our materials used in bridals are supplied by local producers who meet the global quality standards and have required certificates. We are launching a new brand called FRIENDLY where we use only and totally sustainable materials in all of our products. Generally bridal garments consist of fabrics that require high percentages of Polyester which does not dissolve in the nature easily. So, either we use recycled Pes fabrics with GRS certificate or other materials which includes as much as natural fibers possible such as bio-cotton, hemp, linen, tencel and eco-vero fabric with lenzing certificate. Also accessories we use such as buttons, zippers and interlinings are also produced from either natural or recycled materials.

2.WORKMANSHIP
As a part of our sustainability understanding we are trying to make conscious designs to save more materials&sources, time and energy in every dress. Also, with a clever workmanship, every dress is designed to be tailored upon request easily so by this way you can use your dress after you wedding in other occasions. Hem seams, waist seams and all the darts have at least 1cm seam allowance that enables to widen up until one size. (Every dress’s pattern is uniquely studied first on mannequin and then transferred into our digital library which makes the sizing and required alterations easier. In order to find perfect fitting, we produce several samples and decide on the best looking one of all. Every process of producing a dress is taken so carefully by our professional team.)

3. QUALITY
For us quality is the most important thing of all so we take it seriously to present you the best dresses in best prices with the best service. Our quality controllers check every single style in sampling process and also once the style is fully produced before shipping & delivering to you. We use latest technology equipment such as Juki sewing machines, digital plotters to catch up with the up to date production trends. We are on a period to apply for BSCI and SEDEX certificates to guarantee our production standards and quality once we move to our new building in Sarnic. In this sense from A to Z every raw material we use in production, every supplier we work with, every equipment we use has quality certification.
