We have a responsibility for our production and consumption which is why we ensure all our fabrics and suppliers are GOTS, OEKO-TEX or Fair Wear certified and comply with all the relevant, local trade standards.
We use organic cotton rather than synthetic or non-organic fibres as our main fabric base. This is the only system which offers a real holistic approach, as the use of fertilisers or other toxic substances are strictly prohibited. This helps to maintain clean waterways and prevents our ecosystem from being infiltrated with harmful chemicals resulting in long-term and irreversible affects. Organic farming means healthier soils, which results in better conditions to store rain water and, subsequently, prevents it from being taken from local communities.
Consideration to the dyes we use is integral and all must be of low-impact. We require them to be classified by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 (an international certification process) as eco-friendly.
We minimise waste by only producing the amount of pieces we need. Overproduction results in landfill disposal which is why all of our production runs are small and unique.
All Dion of Paeania packaging is biodegradable and recyclable and we are conscious to package in the most efficient and minimal way possible.
