Targeting a zero footprint is not easy and we are still learning how to improve our sustainability. We use only natural materials, upcycling & recycling whenever possible. The 925 sterling silver that we use in our jewelry comes from recycled sterling silver. Our cotton jewelry pouches and the soft ribbon for our medallions are made from upcycled clothing at our local cooperative. All of our books, even our paper hang tags, business cards, and bookmarks are made out of upcycled cotton from discarded t-shirt cuttings from the fashion industry.

Our packaging is minimal & plastic-free. Our mailers are made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste paperboard, and printed with eco-friendly vegetable/water based inks so they can be 100% recycled; better yet, these mailers can be reused, so give them a second life! 100% biodegradable, 100% sustainable, 100% recyclable, 100% good vibes!

It's awesome to have a positive impact on your community, which is why we choose to work with local artisans when possible. Rather than order packaging or trims through wholesale suppliers, we upcycle vintage t-shirts and make it all here on our island of Santa Maria in the Azores.
We are committed to fair, safe and healthy working conditions and let the artisans dictate prices based on what they deem is fair. Working this way forces us to think outside-the-box and helps to minimize our environmental impact. Plus, being able to walk from your home studio to the local artisan cooperative is beyond good vibes!
