Reve en vert
The one thing all Rêve En Vert designers have in common above any other attribute is their fundamental desire to protect our natural world. We know that sustainability and consumption do not easily go hand in hand, but our curation of designers are challenging themselves to be the best possible versions of themselves when it comes to production and ingenuity.
Our Environmental Beliefs:
We believe in climate change.
We believe in zero waste.
We believe in getting rid of toxic chemicals.
We believe in respecting our waters.
It would be impossible to separate conscious design from conscious production, and that is where the human impact and consideration for all people comes into our consideration. There are still millions of people in forced, low paid and horrible labour and that has no place within the Rêve En Vert curation.
Our Social Beliefs:
We believe in fair and transparent working conditions.
We believe in slow and considered fashion.
We believe in supporting local and artisanal production.
We believe in individual empowerment.
At Rêve En Vert, we have nothing to hide along our supply chain. Most of our designers are still independently owned, and their economic policies go hand in hand with protecting people and planet.
Our Economic Beliefs:
We believe in second life materials (up/recycled)
We believe that less is more.
We believe cost should correlate to quality & longevity.
We believe in give-back/charitable giving.
At Rêve En Vert, we have nothing to hide along our supply chain.
The use of organic and natural materials is essential in all of our lines, ranging from fashion to beauty. Our designers are committed to sourcing the most ethical materials possible, with an emphasis on low-environmental impact and longevity. They use natural fibres and organic materials over synthetics due to their ability to biodegrade and leave less of a footprint at the end of their life cycles.
Re-made means that our designers are looking to use up-cycled and recycled materials as often as possible. In a world where we already have so much, we believe that reusing materials and resources is one of the biggest opportunities we have in creating more sustainable production.
Our designers have an appreciation for their local communities and economies. They produce as close to their studio base as possible in most cases. They pay attention to their local communities and strive to give business back to them. They respect local traditions and ways of doing business.
Respect for the people making the products we choose to feature is key to us. We check for fair factory certification and make sure everyone is paid living wages. We also make sure respect is paid to the environment in all scenarios – from water use to avoidance of harsh chemicals.
