The Sofia Skirt in navy is made of tencel twill fabric that is woven in Turkey and is Oeko-Tex certified. Tencel is made from wood pulp that’s harvested from tree farms that are sustainably managed and traceable. The tree farms have been established on land unsuitable for food crops or grazing.The fiber production itself is more eco-friendly than cotton production due to its closed-loop process. This means that up to 99% of the water and solvents used are recycled and reused. Production plant emissions are significantly lower in comparison to many other human-made fiber operations. The closed loop process process used to manufacture Lyocell fiber does not require bleach, which is commonly used in the production of other fabrics.
Our buttons are made of ebony. The button factory uses renewable energy. BerBrand, the button maker, is certified by WCA (Workplace Conditions Assessment). Ebony is a dense hardwood that comes from India and is manufactured in Italy.
The Maker follows a slow fashion philosophy first and foremost. We value quality over quantity and do not follow the outdated seasons of the fashion industry. Instead, we introduce small capsule collections when there is demand and focus on lasting, timeless design, colour and materials. We do not remove items from our collections, because there is no such thing as out of date or out of season for us. Some of our designs may be reintroduced multiple times and stay in our roster for years. We only create things that serve a purpose and add something vital to an individual’s wardrobe. Our clothing is made well so it may last through time, and we give detailed care instructions so that you may care for it the best way possible. We never aim to churn out new designs relentlessly, but only introduce new styles when there is a space that needs to be fulfilled. We do this in the hopes of introducing our customers to a more conscious way of shopping. The Maker is not in a hurry to make clothes fast, but embraces the slow process of well made garments.
