TOWARDS A CIRCULAR FUTURE
We know the future of the economy is circular, and we are working to become a circular fashion brand.
We have already worked on eliminating waste and pollution by following a zero waste policy within our production process and we reduce pollution by diminishing our carbon footprint as much as we can and planting a tree for each product we make.
We have also worked with circular products and materials, using recycled textiles where possible, extending the lifetime of our products and collaborating with fashion sharing platforms. We are currently working on regenerating our products at the end of their life.
Merging Durabilty, practicity and style
One of the problems that the fashion industry is causing to the environment is the amount of waste it generates. This is mainly due to the consumption of low cost fashion that has created the throwaway fashion culture.
At Canussa, we want to promote a responsible consumption by creating products that last for many years: Our timeless designs for a perfect capsule wardrobe.
We firmly want to extend the life of our fashion garments. On top of creating high quality and durable products, we believe it is important for them to be beautiful, but still remain practical.
The more you like them and the more practical you find them the more you will use them. We also love them to be multifunctional so you can wear a Canussa many times at many different occasions, be they formal or casual.
MINIMAL CARBON FOOTPRINT
1 CANUSSA = 1 TREE PLANTED
We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’re partnering with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every Canussa sold.
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.
RESPECT FOR ANIMALS
At Canussa we are committed to the use of non-animal-derived fabrics. We’re delighted to have been awarded the coveted ‘VEGAN PETA Approved’ designation.
We are continuously seeking for the most sustainable vegan alternatives to leather. To us durability is key when choosing a fabric, so our products can last for years. The microfiber currently used for the exterior of our accessories is a waterproof fabric ' that looks and feels like natural leather that is washable, light and highly resistant.
The STANDARD Oeko-Tex 10 is an independent testing and certification system that guarantees that the fabric we use has been tested and meets the required criteria to be considered a fabric free of toxic substances that are harmful to our health.
Nevertheless, we are continuously testing and trying new vegan alternatives to leather, to get the latest, most sustainable and high-resistant fabrics available.
our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action to all countries. At Canussa, we want to contribute to a sustainable developement by committing to 6 of the 17 goals.
Goal 5: Equal opportunities for profesional development
Goal 17: Collaboration with sustainable circular fashion projects
All our accessories are made ethically in Spain.
Vegan fashion is generally defined as the manufacture of clothing and accessories produced without animal origins. That is to say, during the manufacturing process no animal is touched
Even if the term “vegan leather” is not completely accurate, it is nevertheless a term used to refer to a material that ‘looks like’ leather but does not come from animals. At Canussa we prefer to refer to a vegan alternative to leather. To us the best option available at the moment is to use high resistant microfiber Oeko-Tex certified. We are working on offering the option of a recycled fabric that looks like leather.
For the lining we use SEAQUAL® YARN which is is a 100% recycled material with full traceability (DNA tracer inside). It’s a high-quality, recycled polyester yarn made from recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and plastic captured from the sea. That’s why it contributes to preserving natural resources and reducing the waste in the planet’s water. Our objective is to work toward a circular future using 100% recycled fabrics
At Canussa, we try to reduce as much as we can our carbon footprint, so we do our best to select local suppliers and to manufacture ethically in Spain. Additionally, per each Canussa, in collaboration with ‘One Three Planted’, we plant one tree
