Staff engagement: “We work with local workshops that respect the working conditions of their employees and want to take action for the planet, such as helping to plant trees at Citarum River in Bandung, Indonesia.” The company provides advices and support local suppliers.
Local & organic purchasing: There is less waste of dye, the ink is printed on demand and can be used on the entire surface of the fabric or for the establishment of specific patterns, reducing the loss of tissue. Ada Perlu is made of natural & sustainable materials such as 100% biological bamboo fabrics.
