From the very start one of our main focuses has been to make sure that our products have a very small impact on the environment. Sustainable Material, Ethical Production and 'Slow Fashion' are three main pillars that infuse our entire business and drive any decision that we make.
We’re excited about women's finest quality home-ware which nurture the skin where all our senses can directly experience the unique quality. The fineness of the fabrics and material, elevated with details and elaborate cuts ensure comfy feeling and perfect fit. There are various aspects to consider when it comes to the durability of a garment, like timeless and classic design, tailoring technique and quality, the behaviors of customers while using and washing, but above all it is the quality of the materials used. We make sure that all our suppliers of yarn, fabrics and accessories carry the correct environmental authorizations. They are all handpicked according to our high standards for quality and sustainability. We carry out rigorous random material testing at third-party certification partner SGS.
We partner with a boutique in Saigon - Vietnam for our production. They care as much as we do about product quality and offer good working environment for their employees. We make conscious choices from the selection of our yarns, fabrics, buttons accessories to our business partners. We stay curious, informed, constantly looking for new suppliers and materials that contribute to a more sustainable environment. We work to disconfirm our beliefs and challenge the status-quo in fashion production. See more details about our production here.
'Slow Fashion' is a concept opposite ‘Fast Fashion’. It is an approach towards fashion that promotes great quality and an ethical and sustainable way of living, consuming, manufacturing and sourcing.
At Katie di Mare, we’re not big on trends. We dream about creating clothes that are timeless and classic in design and made to last. We want you to enjoy our products years to come. Our collections will very likely have classic items that carry forward over several seasons.
We stay low-key when it comes to sale except for our launch, as we believe it promotes unnecessary and irresponsible consumption (see more about our pricing here). That’s why we source the finest materials for our timeless products— like our silk, velvet and viscose pieces.
