We are an independent family-run business, that cares deeply for the environment and sustainable practices. This is reflected in our fabric choices, our small batch manufacturing and responsible European production that meets the highest standards.
By working with selected trusted suppliers and selling directly to you, we don’t have to compromise on quality and can cut away middle men and huge traditional markups.
We strive to be open and transparent in our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. We are constantly working to improve and implement our strategy, to ensure the welfare of our planet and the people we work with. This allows us to manufacture dresses that are in line with our brand values and let you start off your marriage with the right footprint.
the Artemis team
We are proud to manufacture our garments in Lithuania, source our fabric from Turkey and trimmings from Portugal, keeping our supply chains as short as possible by maintaining proximity with our mills and working exclusively with those who share our values of paying living wages, treating workers with respect, and providing safe, comfortable working conditions.
Throughout our supply chain, we rigorously and wholeheartedly abide by the Code of Conduct, based on ILO Conventions for labour practises and the UN’s Declaration on Human Rights, setting standards for labor rights and safety practises.
ARTEMIS strongly supports the industry-wide movement towards greater transparency in fashion supply chains. We always disclose the location of our suppliers and detailed information about them, however we do not share their full address due to privacy, security and safety concerns.
For specific inquiries about any of our facilities, please contact our team at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide further information. Rest assured that we have thoroughly investigated our facilities to ensure they meet the social and environmental standards we demand in our supply chain partners.
Fabric is one of the most important elements in a wedding dress and we choose ours with care. Three things are essential to us when picking the perfect fabric: sustainability, comfort and breathability. So you can dance all night without a care in the world.
FSC Certified Viscose
Viscose is a plant-based material made from regenerated cellulose fibres from trees such as pine, bamboo and eucalyptus. After derivation, the fibres are manufactured through chemical processes, filtered and spun into fine thread. As a fabric, viscose has great colour retention and drapes beautifully. When wearing garments made from viscose, you will experience it to be soft, smooth and breathable.
FSC Certified Viscose
We’re super committed to making sure the forests we source from are conserved, protected, and restored. That’s why we have chosen only to work with specific viscose fabrics that have been developed with FSC-Certified Wood Pulp, that have a premium quality and a low environmental impact.
Viscose materials cannot be certified as organic, but the raw materials that are used to make our viscose are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, which makes it a sustainable viscose. FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social & economic benefits.
Why we chose FSC Certified Viscose
- The FSC runs a global forest certification system which demands that wood, paper, and other forest products are sourced from well-managed forests and / or recycled materials. The certification covers forest management and tracing the wood through all stages of production and distribution.
- FSC is collaborating with global NGO Canopy to ensure that the growing demand for forest-based textiles contributes to the sustainable management of forests rather than driving deforestation in ancient woodland, as well as promoting the welfare of workers worldwide.
- In addition to this, following a request from leaders at major global fashion retailers, FSC is working with key players in the industry to achieve the first complete certified textile supply chain. Through this work, the FSC hopes to demonstrate that it can be used as a tool to ensure traceability from well-managed forests to textile companies.
At ARTEMIS we are always trying to find ways to reduce our carbon footprint, that is why we have chosen shipping boxes that resonate our values. They have the following certifications:
The boxes are certified as an FSC Mix product. This guarantees to you that the product comes from a producer, who has bought material from forests certified to the highest standards, and whose production therefore supports responsible forest management.
The RESY symbol is for consolidation of transit packaging manufactured from corrugated cardboard only. It guarantees that packaging is recyclable and will be accepted by cardboard recyclers.
Climate neutral products - the highest level of climate protection
Anyone who buys climate neutral products is making a concrete contribution to fighting global warming. The label guarantees the climate neutrality of the labeled product and means that they have calculated the carbon emissions inevitably generated in the process chain and offset them via recognized carbon offset projects.
To protect and wrap the dresses on their journey to you, we have decided to work with the company “Satin Wrap” that created premium wrapping paper that is certified by the Sustainable Forest Initiative
SFI Inc. is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable forest management. They work with conservation groups, local communities, resource professionals, landowners, and countless other organizations and individuals who share our passion for responsible forest management.
Their forest certification standard is based on principles that promote sustainable forest management, including measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk, and Forests with Exceptional Conservation Value.
For safe storage of the dresses we use recyclable Low-density polyethylene bags.
