Overproduction in the fashion industry is one of the biggest threats to the environment.
At Made The Edit, we are working to do our part by building an ethical supply chain that creates high-quality, low-impact, long-lasting products. We have put a strategy in place to reduce waste and do our bit for the environment so you can wear your shoes in good conscience.
Here are a few ways we're making a stand:
Production on demand.
We're implementing a pre-order system across the shoes in our edit. This means that we can accurately anticipate demand and only produce the number of shoes we sell. By using this system, we eliminate waste and no single pair of shoes is made unnecessarily.
We believe in promoting conscious buying.
The styles we edit and create are timeless. Our artisans take great pride in the shoes they create and only work with handpicked suppliers for materials that are high quality and durable. Both of these ensure that each pair of shoes last you years so you can reduce your own consumption.
We support independent artisans.
Our ateliers work with local craftsman, suppliers and materials to ensure top quality products and also keep the CO2 footprint down. By working with artisan workshops, we can ensure that we don't support sweatshop working conditions and all craftsmen and women receive a fair salary for the skilled work they produce.
