We invest considerable time into researching and carefully choosing the people we work with to create our pieces.
Factories (family run knit mill example)
All of our employees are treated with respect and paid fairly....etc and we expect the same from our partners.
We work with partners within Europe to allow us to maintain full visibility of our supply chains as well as verifying our fabric mills certifications and manufacturing technologies.
MADE IN ENGLAND
All of our collections are crafted and printed in England. We choose to work with individuals and companies based in the UK to reduce our carbon footprint, and to utilise and celebrate the skillsets we can access locally.
We deliberately choose to create limited quantities of all our pieces, and request pre-order on a number of items online to reduce waste stock, and to ensure that each piece we create is delivered to an individual who will cherish their item for years to come.
Our upcoming collections will also feature pieces crafted from deadstock fabric salvaged from another luxury brand closing for business, therefore diverting useable fabric from landfill.
This enables us to breathe new life into existing textiles and the opportunity to create unique pieces for our customers with a fabric re-use back story. These particular fabric bases have since been tested to verify their composition and are certified to being Made in Italy.
As a brand based upon travel and exploration, the ocean is hugely important to us. Oceans, seas and coastal areas form an integrated and essential component of the Earth’s ecosystem and are critical to sustainable development.
To avoid unnecessary use of plastic which ends up in our seas, we are currently sourcing packaging created from recyclable material. Our aim is to use 100% recyclable boxes and bespoke tissue paper by mid 2020.
LAST A LIFETIME
Designing and producing clothing which really stands the test of time is the most environmentally-conscious and sustainable positions we can adopt as a brand. We are sourcing, making and redefining our goals behind the products we design for YAITTE, helping to create a better future.
