As a consumer you make a choice each time you add a new piece to your wardrobe. At least some people put it that way, since demand and supply are defining factors, when small and large companies decide how to produce their goods.
When you buy Gai+Lisva you make a sustainable choice. We care about a gorgeous design as well as social sustainability and methods of production that protect the environment. This is the reason why many of our styles are made from either organically produced natural materials or sustainably recycled materials.
The design is obviously a top priority – otherwise we wouldn’t actually wear the styles and then it wouldn’t matter how they were produced. We guarantee that both looks and comfort are in place – along with sustainability. The following styles are all made form organic cotton that is GOTS certified or made from recycled materials that live up to Global Recycled Standard.
