IMPORTANCE OF LONGEVITY & CRAFTSMANSHIPPIXIE makes clothing that is made to last. We strongly believe that quality and value matter over quantity. We follow the idea of offering you pieces within the concept of a capsule collection for which the idea in itself stands against overconsumption. Such an approach further ensures added durability to all the PIXIE pieces. Even more so, seeing you appreciating your PIXIE garments with an outlook of lasting a lifetime makes us proud and provides us with further motivation to create in as responsible a manner as possible.
STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCEPIXIE is aware that there is always room to grow when it comes to moving towards the ultimate responsible practice. We take pride in each new process in our workflow that brings us toward our goals. Following the innovations and actively looking for new ways of decreasing our ecological footprint is surely on our daily schedule.
MATERIALS WE FAVOUR
PIXIE only works with carefully selected materials – when browsing through our offering, you will notice we use cupro, organic cotton, Tencel, alpaca & merino wools, and our most beloved linen. The formula is simple: we take a mindful approach when it comes to the materials we work with, which is why we believe that the fabric has to be durable, biodegradable or recyclable.
RE-USING WHAT'S ALREADY THEREWe rarely use fabrics that are not organic, recycled and biodegradable, but, if we do, it’s something that already exists on this planet. Deadstock textiles are left behind by others who thought that they would need more than they did – instead of becoming a part of the landfill, deadstock is turned into powerful clothing.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL ALSO THROUGH PACKAGINGThe clothing is delivered to our clients packaged in 100% biodegradable plastic, and we do not use any dye for our cardboard boxes. Organic cotton PIXIE dust bags are made to last. Moreover, they keep the garments safe when necessary and are encouraged to be used for garment storage. Also – same as for our clothing, any printing is carried out using the screen print method and water-based inks.
PEOPLE AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING
Our heart lies close to home: the manufacturing process takes place in Latvia and in addition PIXIE cooperates with factories in Europe that operate similarly by striving toward efficiency. We invest time and energy to make sure that our workers are well taken care of and feel appreciated for the work they do.
