AT HVISK WE HAVE MADE A COMMITMENT TO POSITIVE CHANGE – BUT IT’S A JOURNEY WE HAVE RECENTLY JOINED AND WE STRIVE TO DO BETTER EVERY DAY. ONE OF OUR FIRST INITIATIVES HAS BEEN TO BECOME A VEGAN BRAND.

WE ARE COMMITTED TO NOT USING LEATHER MATERIALS FOR OUR PRODUCTS, AS WE CONTINUE TO EXPLORE NEW WAYS TO PRODUCE AND DESIGN.

IN 2019 WE BECAME A PETA CERTIFIED VEGAN BRAND. PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS (PETA) IS THE LARGEST ANIMAL RIGHTS ORGANIZATION IN THE WORLD. PETA FOCUSES ITS ATTENTION ON AREAS IN WHICH THE LARGEST NUMBERS OF ANIMALS SUFFERS E.G. THE CLOTHING TRADE.

THIS IS ALREADY EMBEDDED IN OUR CORE VISION AND VALUES. WE STRIVE TO BE TRANSPARENT AND HONEST IN EVERYTHING WE DO, SO WE CAN MAINTAIN OUR STATUS AS AN AUTHENTIC BRAND.

THE NEXT STEP ON OUR JOURNEY OF SUSTAINABILITY IS OUR USE OF RECYCLED MATERIALS. OUR DESIGN TEAM HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD ON SOURCING RECYCLED AND MORE CONSCIOUS MATERIALS, AND NOW WE ARE READY TO PRESENT OUR FIRST LINE OF PRODUCTS MADE FROM RECYCLED NYLON.

THE MATERIAL IS MADE OF RECYCLED PLASTIC WASTE AND HAS BEEN INSPECTED AND ASSESSED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE GLOBAL RECYCLED STANDARD (GRS). THE GLOBAL RECYCLED STANDARD IS AN INTERNATIONAL STANDARD THAT SETS REQUIREMENTS FOR THIRD-PARTY CERTIFICATION OF E.G. RECYCLED CONTENT.

AS WE EVOLVE AS A COMPANY SO DO OUR PRODUCTS. WE WANT TO MAINTAIN YOUR FAVOURITE STYLES BUT PRODUCE THEM MORE SUSTAINABLY. OUR RECYCLED BAGS ARE THEREFORE NOT AN ADDITION TO OUR COLLECTIONS BUT AN IMPROVEMENT ON EXISTING PRODUCTS. YOU CAN ENJOY THE SAME BESTSELLING STYLES, BUT NOW IN RECYCLED MATERIALS.

ALL OUR MATERIALS HAVE REACHED GRS CERTIFICATION, ENSURING OUR CUSTOMERS OF THE AUTHENTICITY OF OUR PRODUCTION AND MATERIALS. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER STEP TOWARDS BECOMING MORE CONSCIOUS, CREATING QUALITY PRODUCTS BUT WITH A POSITIVE IMPACT. STAY TUNED.
