Sustainability is more than a passing trend for us at Carmina, it is at the core of everything we do. Our company’s values are deeply rooted in the sustainable fashion movement and we stand for the betterment of our planet and our community.
Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
Our facility consists of equipment and features which aim to save energy and reduce our carbon footprint. Our servo driven sewing machines saves 60%-80% on energy, while we also use all LED-lighting across our 10,000 square foot facility.
Recycling & Repurposing
We recycle all of our excess textiles by sorting and sending the textiles to plants who turn it into new products. Carmina also does our own repurposing by using large scrap pieces ofoff-cut fabricand using them for items such as bag liners (skilled accents), planter pots, etc.
Healthy Work Environment
At Carmina we encourage diversity, equality, and inclusion of new Canadians in our workforce. We provide a certified living wage and ergonomic sanctions to ensure all workers at Carmina are in a healthy working enviornment.
Our Modern Essentials collection is made in-house at our facility in London, Ontario, Canada. We choose to use materials that are sustainably produced such as Bamboo, Help, Linen, Tencel and natural fibres.
