We are committed to building a sustainable brand with high ethical standards that not only benefit our consumers, the children, but also the environment in general. Minimalisma pledges to work, communicate and inform about materials and production in an honest and transparent way. To this end, we presently make a special effort to get GOTS certification for our own company.
As a fundamental decision, Minimalisma only sells clothes that fulfill the following criteria:
- Fair and safe conditions for textile workers
- Focus on protection of the environment during the production process
- No usage of toxic chemicals
- Sustainable materials incl. animal welfare
All of our clothes are natural, as it’s important to us to respect the environment and nature which belongs to our children. In a world where disposable children’s clothing has become the norm, minimalisma tries to create a high quality and eco-friendly alternative.
signature silk seamless
Our seamless silk and wool is produced in Jiangsu province, the centuries old centre of Chinese silk trade. We believe that the best products are made at their origin, where the expertise to handle the material is the greatest and to leave the whole production process in one place, from cocoon to knitting. We also transport all our products in China by rail, as it is the more sustainable solution. Just like caterpillars refuse to eat leaves treated with pesticides, Minimalisma refuses to let anything interfere with this material’s intrinsic character: Silk is insulating and breathable and has a natural thermoregulation ability to maintain an ideal body temperature. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and, thus, highly beneficial to a child’s sensitive skin.
Our wool is sourced in Australia and guaranteed mulesing free.
The wool is then knitted and finished in China by a supplier that we personally know since 2007. Part of the production is done in a GOTS certified factory and another part in a smaller factory which we inspect on every visit to see that the conditions are according to our expectations.
All the organic cotton used in the production process is certified as organic. The production of the garments is then done in Hungary (essentials) and Bangladesh (lightweight). Our Hungary factory gets inspected several times per year by IMO and therefore, everything is in line with GOTS Standards. In Bangladesh, our factory is also working in compliance with GOTS and is being audited by ACCORD to ensure workplace safety. As a result, all toxic chemicals are prohibited in the production, the cotton is oeko-tex certified and controlled for any harmful substances.
For our Alpaca wool, we work with the biggest family owned alpaca producer in Peru that has their Alpacas grass in the highlands.
They use a vertically integrated process from farming to finished product. This factory prides itself with GOTS, Oeko-Tex 100 and Alpaca Origin certification.
