Ethical and environmental values

We want to bring out the best in what we put in; more than just lingerie, our products breathe with life and maintain the quality that will last…

Ethicality and the environment mean a lot to us, as it is the driving force for much of our inspiration and personal values. 

We want to make sure our supply chain and products have a positive meaning.

That’s why we say:

Created with love and treated by heart…

Stay delicately to keep telling stories endlessly.

Nature you are my true inspiration 

It surrounds us, and fills our soul; everlasting and magnificent, 

the biggest inspiration for Tisja and the starting point of every collection: nature. 

So we start with a story… Because before creating a new collection, we want to get inspired, and nature is our thing.

Personal touch

Tisja believes that her strong connection to the complete process gives life to her signature designs and stories. This is a journey she hopes to take on for many, many years; to ensure this, she stays close to herself, and every stage and creation reflects her personality and considerate approach to creating and sharing.

The design process, the development of patterns, and sampling are done in our atelier in Amsterdam to develop a distinction in the design, quality, and fit. With this, we avoid extra transport or unnecessary development cost and time. Even the smallest waste inspires us to create… The remaining little pieces of materials are a treasure box for Tisja, creating an opportunity to be creative as a designer and to look at it in a different way. Some of her pieces feature a patchwork element, combining the materials in different ways to ensure all of the materials are used. This is why we also combine the materials in different styles so even the smallest pieces are not a waste, but a piece that inspired her to create.

Timeless quality

Our pieces stand for timeless luxury. We don't believe in seasonal or in creating a new collection four times a year, besides, we love our lingerie and believe it fits our zeitgeist longer than just a few months, even when it’s considered ‘’fashion’’… We also stand proudly behind our quality and know this is a story that will last; we make sure you can keep wearing these pieces for years to follow.Our collections are made so you can combine or add pieces. So when you want a little change, you can just keep on telling new stories… We do believe in timeless and with these qualities, you will believe in it too. If wearing this piece now or in ten years makes you happy, please do.

Supply chain

We test our companies and maintain a personal connection with them. They share our values in quality and make sure our supply chain has the positive value of ethical and environmental.

All companies are located in Europe. In our collections, we use high-quality materials from only a couple of companies known for their high and luxurious quality. Our unique and beautiful collection of Chantilly and Leavers lace comes from France and Italy, where it is made with the authentic lace machines as shown on the photo underneath. Our silk comes from the United Kingdom, and silk straps and golden trims from France.

All of our prints are created together with friend Anne van den Boogaard and Katarina Stupavska and developed on silk and cotton in The Netherlands. 

We know all of these companies well, and how they work to ensure they share our values during our process. We might not be able to say anything about what they do besides our business together,but with a personal talk, we made sure they understand our point of view on ethicality and the environment to make sure when they work with us they also join us.

Made in

Our pieces are made in our own atelier located in Amsterdam and larger quantities are made in an atelier in the North of Romania. The reason why we choose to work with this company is that they are known for their high quality, it is registered as a safe workspace and it is close to The Netherlands which means shorter transport and we can visit easily. This company is loved and known as a specialist and supplier of highly-qualified services in the field of lingerie, corsetry, swimsuits, and light garments. The company was founded in 1996, operating on 7000 sqm and having 200 employees. It is present on the BSCI platform (Business Social Compliance Initiative) that analysis social issues related to product and work quality and safety. This production atelier has always been one of the top 3 companies, in this area, in the past 10 years.

Less and shorter transport

We work with companies close by to make sure we avoid unnecessary transport distances. Our transports are scheduled to make sure we sent as many goods together. 

Statement on sustainability

We won’t state we are completely sustainable, but we think about our environment every step of the way in our business and personal lives. We do this by recycling, using our good materials to the fullest, and knowing where they come from. We are working on the involvement of our company to increase the positive impact on our planet. To do more. We believe this will enrich us and you… With it our signature, our quality, and our stories. We are working on all of the packagings to guarantee a luxurious touch, keeping in the spirit of the brand, whilst maintaining our values through the use of recycled materials and plastic-free.

With who we create stories

We want to work with other creative people worldwide and it is truly a dream come true that we are realising this with our lingerie. Before starting a collaboration, we begin with a personal talk to see if our feel, approach, and values match. We do this to make sure our lingerie is not used in a way that contradicts our values, naming animal fur to be one.

Thank you for taking the time to read more about our story. 

We hope that this gives you more feel and thought of the pieces you’re interested in buying or bought and where we stand.

Tisja and my wonderful team
