Reduced carbon footprint

We only produce hand made clothes. Hand printed, hand cut, hand sewn.

Locality

Our prints are a technique of screen printing, all applied by hand, using mainly natural dyes. The sewing aspect is done by hand. The work force at our factory is composed mainly of women, many of them the head of their household. This season we are introducing a limited-edition styles of a variety of accessories created by Yvonne and produced by local artisans of villages in Colombia. All hand made as well.

Non-toxic dyes

Our dyes are all watered based using screen printing. The left-over water from the fixation process is filtered before going back into the environment.

Biodegradable materials

We are constantly looking for ways to replace any plastic being currently used by using a biodegradable material.

Zero-waste products or processes

We do our best to minimize any waste by recycling the left-overs. We are currently planning to deliver some of our Yvonne S styles in recycled clothes, and printed hand sewn bags.
