Filippa K launches “Long Lasting Simplicity”
We look forward to presenting this project to our customers
Filippa K will shortly launch Long Lasting Simplicity – three products especially made to be as sustainable as possible from different perspectives: choice of materials, dyeing, waste and spill, transport, use, durability and recycling. The development of these pieces are seen as a part of a learning process where the goal is to use them as benchmarks for all Filippa K products in the future.
The work with these products have been going on for about a year and has involved parties such as sewing factories, dyers, chemical companies and suppliers, the entire organisation of Filippa K but also external partners, as for example environmental organizations. Full transparency throughout the chain during production has been an important criterion, as well as how the production processes look to ensure the minimization of resource usage.
– It has been incredibly fulfilling to research each stage properly and to develop these products together with our suppliers. I am very happy that we managed to get everyone involved to be as committed to this as we are ourselves, as it has been absolutely necessary for this production. We look forward to presenting this project to our customers, says Elin Larsson, Corporate Responsibility Manager at Filippa K.
The pieces will be released mid-November, in all stores and online.
