Responsible choice collection
By shopping our responsible collection items, you support our mission to lessen the damage the fashion industry poses on the environment. We are determined to continue designing and producing eco-friendly pieces as we believe that is the future of fashion!
We source our fabrics from only trustworthy suppliers that have a history of good work ethics, and eco friendly fabrics. The fabrics are 100% made from natural materials that means they will not pose an immediate threat to the environment either in the making of the item or after.
The natural fabrics are much easier to repair and will last much longer thus lengthening the fashion cycle. All our collections are produced in very small and limited quantities which allows us to have reduced unsold items!
We are committed to introducing more and more eco pieces and complete become eco friendly by 2024!
In the meantime, all our unsold fabrics and items are either recycled or sold on Depop as we do not believe in throwing away garments to landfills where they have no chance to decompose. You can find us on Depop @goldieldn if you would like to shop our outlet pieces or samples at great discount and help us reduce fashion waste!
Reducing plastic waste!
We have fully changed our plastic poly bags to new compostable corn bags. Read more about it here.
We are even more excited to let you know that we have switched our mailing bags to 100% sustainable paper bags! Kite packaging is our current mailing bag supplier and their bags are fully recyclable, sustainably sourced and UK manufactured.
We are happy that our garments travel to you in an eco-way!
Transparency and ethics
We are currently using a family run business that produces our goods in an ethical way. To ensure that we have a written code of conduct that all our current and future suppliers follow so we can assure legal and ethical practices all throughout our business. We expect this code to be communicated clearly to our supplier’s teams and staff to ensure there’s is no malpractice. Suppliers that produce our goods must follow fully their respective countries laws, regulations, and rules.
- Factories must ensure that all the work is done voluntary and no forced labor is used when making our goods. Overtime hours have to be voluntary and can’t be forced on any employees. Suppliers cannot be involved in human trafficking, forced labor camps or prisons. There can absolutely be no slave labor used. Supplier cannot keep any original identity documents.
