FLORA DANICA DENMARK's responsibilities
Is silk environmentally friendly?
Silk is a natural and biodegradable fabric made from the cocoons of silkworms. The production of silk is environmentally friendly because it does not require the use of harmful chemicals or pesticides. In fact, the silkworm itself is a beneficial insect that feeds on mulberry leaves, helping to maintain the health of mulberry trees. Furthermore, silk is a renewable resource because the silkworms can be bred again and again to produce more silk. In addition, silk is a durable and long-lasting fabric that does not pill or fade over time, so it does not need to be replaced as often as synthetic fabrics. This means that the choice of silk can help reduce waste and minimize the environmental impact of the fashion industry. Overall, silk is an environmentally friendly fabric that is sustainable, biodegradable and renewable.
Our scarves come with a long shelf life.
Silk scarves are the most versatile and multifunctional fashion accessory. It comes in "one size" and can be styled and used in countless ways.
Our silk scarves are made of 100% silk and are created from the idea of timeless designs in high quality. If you treat your silk scarves correctly, they can also be passed down and last for generations. That's why we send all our silk scarves in a beautiful box, where you can store the silk scarf when you're not using it.
We are eager to encourage our customers to pursue conscious fashion and to participate in the necessary changes in the fashion industry.
700 tonnes of new clothes that have never been used are destroyed in Denmark every year, and worldwide the amount of clothing waste continues to grow. We will not be a part of this.
That is why FLORA DANICA DENMARK collaborates with the voluntary organization Designers without Borders, which collects clothes from Danish fashion companies that want a better solution to clothing waste and at the same time want to support a good cause.
Designers without Borders works for a greener future where both people and the environment are protected. They do this, among other things, by focusing on clothing waste in collaboration with us. We donate the products with manufacturing defects that we cannot sell to the organization. The sales from here go directly to vulnerable young people and women in South Africa." We also design our collections in small editions and with a focus on long durability both in terms of quality but also in terms of design.
Designers Without Borders sell the donated clothes in South Africa where the profits are distributed to local projects for young people who come from particularly poor areas. The clothes were sold at local events, called "Fashion Fundraisers".
