Coconuts are grown as a food source, as such the byproduct coconut-fibre is born totally impact-free; trees are not cut down, a food source is not redirected nor is dedicated land needed to grow it. Given a coconut tree lives for 60 to 90 years, we are talking about an abundant supply that is absolutely sustainable.
Necessity and a bit of clever engineering gave us our innovative coconut-fibre core. This is the staple structural base all our products are created on. With this innovation we accidently discovered a sustainable replacement for synthetic stiffners or stabilizers like fusing or foam usually used in products such as bags, backpacks and laptop cases.
Our packaging is an innovative zero waste solution - it can be either used as a pot to help reforest the world or as a pot cover or as a reusable gift wrapping to be passed on. We love our packaging as now we have to source lots of more coconut-fiber from the coir communities in sri lanka.
coir communities that once flourished in sri lanka are now facing poverty. We are creating new opportunities with our reimagined use of coconut-fiber to help these communities to prosper once more.
our sustainable materials
our goal is to use at least 95% sustainably sourced natural raw materials by 2025.
coconuts are harvested every 45 days creating an endless supply of coconut-fiber for us!
the sole crepe soles in our sandals are almost 100% pure natural latex and it's sourced entirely locally.
upcycled fabric and components
sri lanka is a major apparel production hub for brands worldwide, and we are able to source lots of pre-consumer discards
natural latex foam offcuts
we use the offcuts from local mattress manufacturers and our own offcuts are used for our reusable sponges
natural latex adhesives
we make our own adhesives in house using natural latex directly sourced from plantations or from waste from rubber manufacturers
at present we stand at
we've calculated these values by weight to help us track where we are in terms of being sustainable as we believe in making honest declarations that give us the aspiration to do better and feel pride in our achievements.
