The future must be sustainable! Or even better: Upcycled! And we are contemplating sustainability within all processes in our organization. This applies to suppliers we are collaboration with, materials we are exploring, and production methods we are using, as we know the importance of protecting our planet and creating a better tomorrow! This means our design philosophy is characterized by a slow fashion approach towards fashion, where no compromises have been taken regarding quality, resources, and respect towards the changing world. We truly believe that timeless design and long-lasting materials must be the focal point for creating new collections as the versatility and lifespan are prolonged. This means when investing in a product from COFUR Denmark, you will not only prolong a beautiful story, but you will simultaneously invest in a product created with love, sustainability, and a passionate heart beating for our environment.
Our entire collection is based exclusively on natural, sustainable materials in consideration of the environment. The majority of our collection is, for example, made of vintage silk sarees from India, which we buy, wash, and upcycle to new styles for the modern woman. And as a new initiative, we have implemented wool in our current collection. We are buying wool-shawls from the northern part of India, where the temperature must be lower compared to the remaining part of the country, which is upcycled to elegant, uniquely designed wool-jackets. Besides focusing on sustainable material choices, we are making a virtue out of using environmentally conscious suppliers and manufacturers to maintain full responsibility regarding our production chain. We are committed, as a slow fashion brand, to take sustainable responsibility and respectability towards the changing world.
The majority of our collection is made of repurposed silk sarees from India, - normally measuring approximately 5-6 meters, which can be used for one dress or one kimono. Simultaneously, this means that a large amount of waste has remained unused, which has created fertile ground for the development of new styles. Besides the beloved mix-print products, our accessory-collection has expanded with scarves, shoppers, bracelets, hairbands, scrunchies, etc. Our zero-waste philosophy has provided an extra chance for sarees that have sustained injuries such as holes or stains from their previous lives. It is, however, not only our materials that are recycled. All packaging, including shipping boxes, bags, and wrapping, is made of FSC-certificated materials. Furthermore, with our environmentally awareness in mind, we are expecting all suppliers to wrap products in recycled packaging as a must!
We are convinced that optimal living - and working conditions belong not only to people working in Europe but likewise our loyal suppliers in India. That is why we mainly use GOTS-certified manufacturers to secure fair wages and safe working conditions, where discrimination and child-labor are banned! It can be strenuous for Indian women to get a job, especially for women with physical disabilities. That is why, in collaboration with our suppliers, we have created countless jobs for women with a background as seamstresses who would have difficulties finding a job, because of their conditions.
We are embracing women's diversity in the way we design new styles that subconsciously support women's look and confidence through timeless design. And since all women are exceptional and the individual female body is unique, only the best is deserved! And what is better than sneaking your body in the best silk quality that only you own? Because since all styles are made of vintage crepe-silk sarees from India, each style will inevitably be a unique item. Furthermore, diversity is one of our heart's desires, which means we embrace all body types, which is why several of our styles are either one-sized or available in XS-XXL.
