eco|fairtrade

“For me, a product is only beautiful if both nature and man have been considered in its development.

Paper
All my products are made in Holland and are completely eco-friendly. The paper carries the FSC-logo, and is acid- and chlorine-free. The Vega-Fast ink is a Dutch developed printing ink based on vegetable oils. The plastic-looking bags are actually made from cornflour and are bio-degradable.

Textiles
During the production of the tea towels I discovered how the conventional cotton industry actually works, and to be honest: I was shocked. This was not something I wanted to be a part of!

Luckily I met Hein Voss, who is the owner of h3pmotives. He is a textiles professional who has his heart in the right place. He often visits India and oversees all the links in his production chain. For Hein, organic and fair-trade aren’t just brainless marketing tools; they are important requirements to his trade. This is a vision that I share.

My textile collection carries both the official GOTS ánd the Fair Trade certificate. With this it meets the highest standards in sustainability.
