FOUR-sustainability

 

When we create a new piece for your collection, our first intention is to make something of high quality that will last a long time and be loved, repaired and passed down. The most impact any of us can have is to use what we have and keep what we buy for a long time.

 

Next, we look at where the materials come from and whether they are made responsibly to the community and environment. We look at our makers, our partners, and choose incredible people (mostly women, but also wonderful men) to work with. Finally, we donate 44% back to the community of makers.

All this sound a little too good to be true? Well, we're making it official. As of October 2021, we've applied for official B-Corp status!

 

What is a B-Corp?

 

Certified B Corporations are businesses that balance purpose and profit. As a member, we must consider the impact of our decisions on our workers, customer, suppliers, community, and planet. We are excited at the prospect of joining a community of stewards who are using business as a force for good!

 

Navigating a Pandemic-Era, Responsible Supply Chain

 

In an effort to keep populations safe during the pandemic, countries enforced lockdowns and introduced measures that significantly impacted the global supply chain. As we adjust and recover, we are waking up in a new world – with decreased freight travel, demand for container shipping increased alongside a surge in e-commerce, causing widespread delays while loading and offloading containers.

While these disruptions are temporary, they are significant and will likely continue for the near term. We want to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude for your support and humbly request your continued patience as we navigate these challenging times. We will continue to do our best to communicate with you along the way.
