CSR Strategy Sustainability As a family owned and run company we are extremely conscious about our corporate responsibility, and we constantly aim to reduce our impact on the environment as well as strengthen our position in regard to social and economic sustainability. We believe that continuously working to improve the quality of our products, both in fabric and design, will increase the lifespan of each product and enhance the circulation of every item. Love it, use it, pass it on. In the design process we aim to create shapes, colours and prints that work well for more than a season and that are able to transcend seasons and trends, also in order to prolong the life of each item. The longer the lifespan, the less we use of the natural resources and the lesser is the environmental footprint and use of natural resources. This lies close to our DNA. We strive to provide our customers with only the finest garments, and in order to do so, we operate exclusively with partners and suppliers of the highest standard, many of them we have worked with for a long time and we have decided to grow and improve together. Social Responsibility To make garments as fine and exquisite as ours, we only work with highly skilled craftsmen, who make use of their experience and unparalleled craftsmanship in the production. By working mainly in the EU we get to work with some of the best and most dedicated artisans who do their best to make every item from SAND Copenhagen unique. By keeping our production, both of fabrics and of garments mainly in Italy and Portugal, we contribute to the continuous survival and prosperity of the South-European textile industry, its workers and its long history of fashion. An industry, otherwise threatened due to many brands outsourcing their production to countries with significantly cheaper labour. By sustaining the textile industry we sustain the workers and theirs families in rural areas where labour can be hard to find and the opportunities often are decreasing, and we also keep the craftsmanship and knowledge passed on from generation to generation, alive. By doing so, we make sure, that fashion has a future.
