As the climate crisis escalates, it becomes our responsibility to assess how our brand can reduce its impact at every step. Our celebration of artistry and commitment to slow design ensures the long life of our products... which hopefully also equals less landfill waste.
We only start making your item(s) once you tell us to. We avoid mass production and make every item to order.
Everything is exclusively produced in our European facility. This means we keep our carbon footprint low: we use minimal shipping.
Our manufacturing and printing process is almost* water-free. Our inks are eco-friendly. Also, there is no gas, coal or oil used in the production process. (*We wash and steam-iron some of our textiles for quality purposes).
We have a growing range of 100% vegan, natural and organic products, including some items composed of recycled and FSC certified materials. We source from the EU whenever possible.
We don't send any waste to landfill. Our fabric scraps are free to our local customers for textile/craft purposes.
Unfortunately, there are still brands that take advantage of unethical child labour laws, creating garments that come at a heavy cost to people and the planet. This is just to keep their own costs down and maximise profit. We’re proud to say we’re not one of those companies. Since Contrado’s inception in 2003, one of our core values has been to be a one-stop shop: to create everything to order in house.
