Production & Sustainability
Our production is small-scale and mindful and each piece is finished by hand. We work with two external producers; one small family owned company outside of Porto in Portugal that make our hand forged styles, and one producer in Stockholm, Sweden that specializes in casting using the best combination of traditional and modern techniques. They make all our casted styles as well as all our platings. We also work with in-house production of made to order pieces in our Malmö based studio in Sweden.
Almost all the silver we use in our production is recycled. Producing small-scale does mean it's difficult to get suppliers to conduct testing to know the exact quantities but up to as much as 95% is usually recycled. Individual batches can on occasion however be slightly lower than that. Since silver is a precious and valuable metal everyone working with it, including us, are always very thorough in making sure that nothing goes to waste. All bits and pieces left over during production are always returned to the supplier for recycling or recycled by the individual producers themselves.
We source all our pearls from our trusted Copenhagen based partner Marc`Harit. Most of our pearls are traceable and come from farms on their way to working sustainably. They are graded according to the official grading system from French Polynesia defined by four different qualities: A, B, C, and D. (A being the highest quality).
Our packaging is produced small-scale by hand in the south of Sweden and made of CO2 neutral and FSC® - Forest Stewardship Council - certified paper produced in Germany. This paper also carries the Cradle to Cradle Certified® Silver certification, a globally recognized standard for safe and sustainable quality products manufactured for the circular economy. The packaging is designed by us in collaboration with Boxmaker Rosenkvist to fit each style individually and protect the jewellery from damages during transport but also to minimize waste. Reuse it or recycle it as paper waste.
