Fashion is the third most polluting industry in the world.
Positive social and environmental impacts are woven into the fabric of HAVAH. We aim to create long-lasting outstanding products by minimising our impact on the environment, using fair labour and supporting grassroots organisations that empower women, plant trees, provide clean drinking water while reducing hunger and poverty.
Here is how we are promoting sustainability at HAVAH…
We believe in treating people fairly. We have carefully vetted partners in our supply chain to make sure they promote and sustain fair labor practices, safe working conditions, and environmental responsibility. Our clothing is handmade to order in Europe and North America where the government has fair labour rights in place.
All our products are handmade to order. When you place an order, we handcraft it just for you. This allows us to avoid over-production and textile waste. With our handmade-to-order approach, we can create as many capsules as required on a monthly basis. This method produces up to 67% fewer carbon emissions. Our delivery times range from 7-10 business days on average for UK, USA, and Europe.
We offer a lifetime product warranty which is a way for us to make sure we get our products back so we can recycle them.
Vegan and Eco-friendly
The inks used are water-based and free of harmful chemicals. They are OEKO-TEX certified and approved by Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Our lifetime product warranty is a testament to our fine quality and the responsibility we take towards the planet for the unique pieces we craft.
We are currently testing recycled polyester alternatives for our activewear.
Fashion production currently makes up 10% of humanity’s carbon emissions. To minimise this impact, HAVAH exclusively sells online and we produce all our clothing on order. We have ateliers in North America and Europe which enable us to provide worldwide delivery without the need to move bulk orders around the world. We also work with 3rd-parties such as Green Story, Eco Cart and Ecologi to help us make all our products more than climate positive while contributing to grassroots organisations in Cambodia, India, Madagascar, and the Philippines.
Our products are sustainably handmade to order. This allows us to avoid over-production and textile waste. With our handmade-to-order approach, we can create as many collections as required every month without compromising on quality. We call that "sustainable fast trends". Our delivery times range from 7-10 business days on average for the UK, USA, and Europe. We also offer a lifetime product warranty which is a way for us to make sure we get our products back so we can recycle them.
