RETHINK, QUESTION, TURN THE KEY.

THE REALM OF LUXURY HAS LONG BEEN IN THE PROCESS OF SHIFTING TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY. AS PART OF AN INDUSTRY THAT’S TAKEN ITS TOLL ON THE WELFARE AND FUTURE OF OUR PLANET, WE KNOW THAT WE CAN PLAY A PART IN IMPROVING THE FASHION INDUSTRIES ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.

WE AT HAZE OF MONK WANTED TO RETHINK OUR ROLE, QUESTION WHAT WE DO, AND TURN THE KEY TO AMEND.

TO PROVE OUR COMMITMENT TO THE PLANET, WE TRY AND DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO BE CONSCIOUS, RESPONSIBLE AND ACCOUNTABLE, AND CONSTANTLY WORK FOR WAYS TO IMPROVE OUR ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES. WE EMPHASIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF SUSTAINABLE, SLOW FASHION; DESIGNING AND CREATING DURABLE FOREVER PIECES THAT CAN BE PASSED DOWN FOR GENERATIONS.

SOME FACTS ABOUT OUR SUSTAINABLE VISION:

  • All of our leather collections are created from by-products, which means we take the so-called ‘waste’ of the food industry and use it as our raw materials. Our leather is 100% authentic, natural and does not contain any exotic or endangered species. For our textile line, we use 100% organic cotton and recycled PES.

  • As a brand focused on artisanal leatherwork, every single piece in our collections is meticulously hand-crafted at our local ateliers in Istanbul in environmentally friendly production houses.

  • Producing locally in Turkey enables us to reduce our carbon footprint through a short supply chain.

  • Our packaging is made of completely recycled raw materials  – no chemicals involved.

  • We only partner with suppliers with ethical working conditions, that are certified by global standards such as:

  • Gold Rated LWG Environmental Stewardship Audit for leather

  • Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX for lining and accessories

  • Global Organic Textile Standards

  • Organic 100 Content Standard

  • Organic Blended Content Standard

  • BCI (Better Cotton Initiative)

  • Supima

  • Global Recycled Standard

  • EcoVero

  • Recycled 100 Claim Standard for fabrics.

 

THERE’S NO DOUBT THAT EACH OF US NEEDS TO PAUSE FOR A MOMENT, REMEMBER WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO, AND FIND WAYS TO PERFECT IT. WE NEED TO REALISE THAT THIS MAJOR FORCE WE CALL FASHION CAN BE EVOLVED INTO DOING GOOD AND INFLUENCING THE WORLD TO DO BETTER. WE NEED TO HOLD OURSELVES ACCOUNTABLE, LEAD FOR CHANGE AND PROGRESS POSITIVELY.
