Ethical and Sustainable

Ethical and sustainable manufacturing means a lot to us. We are passionate about making our planet a better place and we try as much as possible to minimize our impact on the planet and it's people. 

 

Design process

Sketching original designs is the first step. Each piece is designed by Mariam Abdelrehim, founder of BR.

Then pieces that require manufacturing such as hoops, rings etc. are sent to a fair trade manufacture to produce. Other than that each piece is handmade in BR studio/ Mariam's studio using findings sourced findings sourced from small business around the world. 

How is BR a slow fashion brand?

We never overproduce

Collections are released seasonally in small batches and most pieces are handmade to order to prevent overproduction and creating any unnessary waste.

Materials

We use high-quality materials that last a lifetime to ensure longevity and that they never end up disposed in landfill. Also many of our stones are recycled and bought second hand.

Vintage

Our planet is filled with beautiful things that are already made. Therefore, we release new curated vintage selection every month to ensure a percentage of the world materials are getting reused and re-loved.

Our packaging

We use recycled envelopes and boxes. Paper tape and recycled paper. All handwritten cards are written on recycled paper. Each jewelry piece comes in a suede pouch that is durable and reusable . Please note occasionally other non eco-friendly materials are used when sustainable packaging stock is ran out and in between orders.
