SUSTAINABILITY STATEMENT

 

At Merlette, the ability to create and connect inspires us, and we recognize that creation bears a huge responsibility. Here are some of the ways that we work to minimize our impact on the environment.  

FABRIC PROGRAM

SUSTAINABLE COTTONS: 100% Pima Cotton is more traceable than conventional cotton and more responsibly grown along with BCI cotton for our tumbled cotton fabrics. 

OEKO-TEX® CERTIFIED: All our fabric has been tested and certified to be free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances.

HAND-WASHING: Our natural fibers are able to be hand washed or machine washed on a gentle cycle, allowing you to skip dry cleaning as much as possible. 

MAXIMUM USAGE: By using our own proprietary cotton fabrications every season, we avoid excess fabric waste that often ends up in landfills or as deadstock fabric.

RESPONSIBLE MANUFACTURING

SLOW FASHION: We support the talented artisans that are a unique and irreplaceable part of this movement. 

GOOD CONDITIONS: Our artisans are paid fair wages and work in safe areas, regularly visited by labour officers. 

RESPONSIBLE MANUFACTURERS: Merlette personally audits our manufacturers globally by our staff to ensure that our high standards are maintained.
