Sustainability isn't just a part of our business; it's the very essence of it.

Perzia is a slow fashion brand that prioritizes craftsmanship and made-to-order items, embodying a timeless capsule collection that defies trends and fast fashion practices. We focus on creating pieces that are made to last, adding new items thoughtfully and deliberately rather than following seasonal trends. Our designs reflect a commitment to sustainability, quality, and timeless style, ensuring each item is a lasting addition to your wardrobe.

At Perzia, our commitment to sustainability is woven into every aspect of our design and production process. We believe in creating high-quality items that reflect our dedication to ethical practices and environmental responsibility. Below is our sustainable procurement policy, which outlines how we ensure our products align with our core values.

Environmental Responsibility

  • Upcycled Materials: We prioritize the use of upcycled and deadstock leather sourced from Italy, Portugal, and Spain, reducing waste and giving new life to materials that would otherwise be discarded. Each Pyramid bag, for example, is crafted from premium quality leather thoughtfully sourced for its unique characteristics.
  • Resource Efficiency: Our made-to-order model minimizes overproduction and excess inventory, ensuring that every item is crafted specifically for a customer, which helps reduce waste.
  • Local Production: All our products are handcrafted in The Netherlands, reducing the carbon footprint associated with long-distance shipping and supporting local craftsmanship.
  • High-Quality Materials: We use high-quality materials that are designed to last, ensuring longevity and durability for all our products.

Social Responsibility

  • Ethical Labor Practices: We are committed to fair labor practices. Our atelier in The Netherlands adheres to high standards of working conditions, ensuring that every piece is made with care and respect for the artisans.
  • Community Impact: By sourcing materials locally and producing our goods domestically, we support the local economy and promote sustainable development within our community.

Economic Responsibility

  • Value for Money: While our products are premium and made-to-order, they are designed to last, providing long-term value. The uniqueness and quality of each item justify the investment, ensuring our customers receive a product that is both beautiful and durable.
  • Supporting Innovation: We continuously research and experiment with new materials and methods to improve the sustainability of our products without compromising on quality or style.

Governance and Compliance

  • Transparency: We maintain clear and honest communication with our customers about our sourcing, production processes, and the origins of our materials. Detailed product descriptions, such as those for our "PLUM" series, illustrate our commitment to transparency.
  • Compliance: Our practices comply with relevant environmental and labor regulations, and we strive to exceed these standards wherever possible.

Continuous Improvement

  • Monitoring and Evaluation: We regularly assess our procurement practices to identify areas for improvement and adapt to new sustainability challenges and opportunities.
  • Stakeholder Engagement: We value feedback from our customers, suppliers, and the wider community to help us refine our sustainability efforts and ensure we are meeting their expectations.
  • Quality Checks: As a slow fashion brand, we take the time to thoroughly quality check our products, ensuring each item meets our high standards before reaching the customer.

By integrating these principles into our procurement policy, Perzia not only creates beautiful and unique products but also contributes to a more sustainable and ethical world. Thank you for supporting a brand that cares about the impact of every item it creates.

This policy reflects our commitment to making a positive difference through thoughtful design and responsible practices. We invite you to join us on this journey toward sustainability.
