Sustainability

SUSTAINABILITY IS AT THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING WE DO

OUR MATERIALS
We use fabrics made from a singular natural fiber: GOTS certified organic Silk.
Our refusal to use materials such us elastane ensures our garments are 100% recyclable.  

Our organic silk is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard - GOTS - signifying that it’s produced using environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing, without using fertilizers, pesticides and, harmful chemicals. Since our skin absorbs up to 65% of any substance it’s in contact with (harmful or not), it’s of dire importance to know what we wear. GOTS certified organic silk is a natural fiber that respects your skin.

GOTS certified organic silk is considerate a renewable resource, as opposed to a finite material. A natural fiber 100% biodegradable, cruelty free, CO2 neutral and non-polluting allow us to safeguard energy and water resources. It is ethically and responsibly produced with zero pesticides and no chemical substances.

From the fabric to each singular components, we use sustainable and certified materials, recycled and recycable. 

Dyes and Textile Printing 
One of our main features is our colours palette. Each one is unique and created explicitly for HERTH.
The dyeing process is completely natural and biodegradable with a low impact on the environment and all our fabrics are digitally printed consuming less energy, lower water consumption and fewer CO2 emissions. Both the dyeing and printing process are GOTS certified and sustainable without chemical substances.

OUR PACKAGING
All our boxes and tissue paper are made from recycled and responsibly sourced FSC certified materials. They are 100% recyclable with a water-based ink used for printing. Our bags are 100% compostable and biodegradable returning to nature with no harmful impact to the environment. 
Tags and Labels.
Each tag is made from 100% recycled and uncoated FSC approved cardboard while each label is made from 100% GRS certified recycled polyester.

OUR DESIGN
Our commitment is a Zero Pattern Waste philosophy and a Slow Fashion way of being. Every collection is modeled and sized to ensure every piece of fabric is allocated to a certain garment resulting in no materials going to waste. Throughout the creative process, our ideology is to create pieces easy to mix and match, and seasonless. We go with the natural rhythm of production with a goal to inspire conscious buying habits.

With these solutions, all transport-related emission of carbon are first calculated and then offset through external climate protection projects. Therefore, it also allow us to make a contribution to promoting the economy in less developed countries and improving the lives of local people.
