WHAT SUSTAINABLE FASHION MEANS TO US
Sustainable production means using the minimum resources required, and leaving plenty of spare resources for future generations to meet their needs as well. The VILDNIS commitment is to do just that. We hold ourselves accountable with a triple bottom line that reports on environmental and social targets as well as profits. We want you to know exactly what you are getting and how you are contributing when you buy a product from VILDNIS. This is our commitment to you…
1. We will always use most environmentally-friendly materials and production methods
Consumers demanding better from brands will drive the creation of new, more sustainable materials and manufacturing processes. We will always strive to use the most environmentally friendly fabrics and production methods available, and to continually demand better as the industry evolves.
Additionally, this extends to our commitments to use environmentally-friendly packaging, transport our goods by road or sea rather than air, and to deliver sustainable fashion from our warehouse to your door in a carbon neutral way.
2. We will always strive to ensure all workers in the supply chain are treated well
Having full visibility of the entire supply chain is a huge task. We build strong relationships with our manufacturers and put strict controls in place to ensure none of our production is outsourced without our knowledge, as this is often where some of the worst abuses happen.
We are committed to mapping our supply chain and engaging in a constant dialogue with our partners to ensure all workers are treated fairly and paid a proper living wage.
All factories have to adhere to our strict code of conduct, and we audit each factory at regular intervals to ensure that they continue to be compliant.
3. We will always demand the most humane treatment for all animals.
We rarely use fabric made from animal fibres, but when we do, we primarily use recycled materials and steer clear of angora, conventional silk, fur and non-certified wool.
4. We will always promote and cultivate open communication
In return for your trust in VILDNIS, we are committed to honesty and transparency in our customer communication.
We are also committed to showing product leadership, consistently delivering high quality products and listening to any feedback that will help us improve.
