Sustainability as a Guiding Principle
Sisterly was born from a vision to create a sustainable and ethical yoga lifestyle brand for women, by women, that feels great for body, mind and soul. ⠀
The fashion industry is the second largest consumer of water and is responsible for 8-10% of global carbon emissions. The fashion industry also faces labour and transparency issues. We believe that this needs to change!
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do and we want to be part of setting a new sustainable and ethical standard in the fashion and activewear industry.⠀
Slow & Mindful Design and Production
We strive to design timeless pieces that stand the test of time in both in terms of design as well as quality. We have no seasonal collections and each garment is envisioned to stay relevant for years to come and we hope to contribute to a more sustainable approach to consumption.
We believe in slow and conscious craftsmanship, creating our collections in small, mindful batches and all products are produced in an ethical way to make sure we create products that feels great for body, mind and soul. ⠀
Human First Approach
From day one, our vision was for each unique garment to empower both those who wear them and those that make them – and that means focusing as much on the people that produce the garment as the garments themselves
This mean that we only work with companies that share the same values as us. Our manufacturer treats their employees well, pay them over the minimum wage, and offer company-wide health insurance for their employees and their families. They also support a local Orphanage with essential commodities.
We are committed to minimizing our footprint by using materials that have a lower impact on the environment and promote better manufacturing and recycling practices. The fabric we use are made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles giving new life to waste otherwise polluting our planet. Any left over fabric scraps from our production is being donated to local charity-based groups who re make them into saleable goods.
Our orders is being sent using eco-friendly, 100% compostable mailer bags. To compost them at home, it’s best to remove any labels, cut them up and place in your compost bin. These will completely break down within 90-120 days in a home-compostable environment - sometimes even sooner!
