Eco peace of mind

At Shoukie, we care about the planet and all the people who inhabit it.

 

We put a high priority on the importance of our environment and have gone out of our way to only select organic fabrics certified by The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). GOTS is the leading textile processing standard worldwide for organic fibres, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain, including ecological and social criteria. The purpose of the standard is to define globally recognized requirements, which ensure the organic status of textiles, from harvesting the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to the proper labeling of fabrics.

 

Any and all colour dyes must also meet certain social and environmental criteria, including a mandatory wastewater treatment plant in compliance with GOTS. We pride ourselves in using only GOTS approved organic products and processes, in order to provide you with a high level of quality assurance regarding our clothing and the people who co-create them.

 

The fabrics are also completely machine washable in cold wash but we recommend that you do not put them in the tumble dryer.

We have also searched to find natural buttons. We decided on Tagua nut buttons. Tagua is the Spanish name for the Corozo nut, also known as vegetal ivory tagua, which is the seed of a palm found in the tropical regions of South America. So the buttons are 100 % natural, including the white / off white natural colour. The vibrant colors found in our buttons are OEKO TEX 100 certified, an international testing and certification system of dyes, which minimize any impact on the environment. The dying process takes place in a workshop in Brussels.

 

Therefore the colours of our buttons are not affected by a normal washing machine cycle, where you can set the water temperature at 30 or 40°C degrees. The Tagua nut buttons may shrink after washing but will return to normal once dried.

 

Our overall aim is to ensure that all the links in our fashion chain are totally and completely environmentally friendly and the materials used are all organic and natural.
