SANDARA’s main priority is bringing love and joy to our customers by creating comfortable, high-quality, and feminine clothes made of 100% linen and organic cotton. We respect and love our planet, and realize that the fashion industry has a huge impact on it, so in every choice and action of our practice, we choose to be transparent, responsible for our principles and strive to be better as much as we can.
Fabric. To create our clothes, we use mainly 100% linen and a little organic cotton. We cooperate with a Los Angeles-based supplier who carries fabric from Europe with an Oeko-Tex certificate, which means fabrics are free of harmful chemicals and are safe for human use. Linen in itself is a natural fiber made from the flax plant, which is a renewable resource that grows even in poor-quality soil and usually does not require any chemical pesticides. It is fully biodegradable and can be easily recycled, making it one of the most sustainable fabrics in the world.
Timeless design and made to order. SANDARA doesn’t follow fashion trends and creates quality, minimalistic and timeless design things. We want our clothes to be worn for years or decades. Most of our clothes are handmade in our studio by the order and only popular clothes we give to the small production company. This way we avoid overproduction and overstocking.
Local and Low Waste. Making clothes at our studio in Los Angeles means controlling every aspect and detail of the process. From the effective use of patterns to the final quality of the product. We try to reduce waste and from the remnants of the fabric, we make small items such as reusable bags, masks, scrunchies, cosmetic pouches, and others. Also, we give small pieces to hand-made craftsmen who make products such as quilted bags and blankets and conduct creative classes for children. Producing locally is also minimizing the CO2 impact of transportation and supports the local economy.
Green Packaging. We are seeking to minimize our footprint as much as possible. Even when it comes to packaging. We wrap the clothes in a biodegradable paper sheet and pack everything into a recycled paper envelope or box.
Tree planting. We partner with tree planting organizations such as One Tree Planted and Plant a Cedar. Each of your orders is one tree planted. We are proud to help the planet become greener and cleaner!
Blog. Sharing information about slow fashion, sustainability, and self-care. In our blog and on our Instagram @sandara_ca we share various useful information about fabrics, production, our work process as a small business, as well as about different ways of taking care of ourselves and our nature.
Sandara's goals are:
- more happy people who take care of themselves, love and cherish Nature's resources
- reduce the consumption of polyester in the world
- more conscious and quality purchases
- so that there are more people who value naturalness and environmental friendliness in clothes.
