Better World Strategy

At SAND Copenhagen, we operate only with suppliers and partners, who abide 100 % to our code of conduct and who are all ISO-certified, guaranteeing that they meet our high standards.

As a family owned and run company, we are extremely aware of our corporate responsibility, and we constantly aim to reduce our impact on the environment as well as strengthen our position in regard of social and economic sustainability.

We believe that continuously working to improve the quality of our items, both in fabric, design, and production, will increase the lifespan of each item. Love it, wear it, pass it on.

In the design process we aim to create shapes, colors, and prints that work well for more than a season and can transcend seasons and trends, also to prolong the lifespan of each item. You can even upcycle or redo the items to further reduce you impact on the environment. 

In all steps of the process from design idea to item we aim to use less of the natural resources and make smart solutions to reduce the environmental footprint. Being responsible lies deep in our DNA.

We strive to provide our customers with only the finest garments, and to do so, we operate exclusively with partners and suppliers of the highest standard, many of whom we have worked with for a long time. Growing and developing together over time makes our relationships strong and our production transparent.

Social & Responsible

To make garments as 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 Southern 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 labor and non-transparent production facilities.

By sustaining the textile industry, we sustain the workers and their families in rural areas where labor can be hard to find, and we also keep the craftsmanship and knowledge passed on from generation to generation, alive.

A Responsible Choice

It's part of SAND' COPENHAGEN's DNA to strive towards sustainability - it's an important journey for us and for the best of our planet. We love to create long-lasting garments based on high quality and timeless designs to increase the lifespan of each product, and every season, we work actively to increase the amount of sustainable fabrics in our collections, in order to improve our environmental footprint.

We're proud to work with Italian fabric suppliers ensuring that their wool comes from responsible and sustainable farms, taking care of animal welfare.

Recycled polyester
The benefits of using recycled polyester are many, as the production of recycled polyester involves 90% less water and requires 70% less energy than conventional polyester fiber production. Moreover, recycled polyester is from plastic bottles and other trash, meaning less trash polyester material is being dumped in landfills.
