Rodebjer always seek to use materials that are durable and have a high quality to assure longevity of product. Additionally, sourcing the most sustainable options available on the market to lower our impact on the planet.
Most common fibers used are regenat fibers, cotton, wool, polyester, linen and silk, defined as Rodebjer key materials. For each key material, a short and long term goal has been set out to.
To actively source innovative materials that have less impact on the planet is an ongoing part of the Rodebjer production development process. Recycled, sustainable certified and organic materials are currently presented in a majority of our materials and new and better alternatives will be introduced as soon as they are commercially ready.
Rodebjer believes that production of any materials of animal origin, leather, fur and wool, is to be done in a manner which pays respect to the lives and rights of the animal. Since day one, we have made an active choice to limit the usage of leather and fur in our collections. We strive to always offer vegan options for both garments and accessories. Rodebjer strive to use recycled wool as much as we possibly can and all our merino wool is mulesing free. All down products are recycled, 100% natural and chemical free.
All Rodebjer suppliers follow the legislation and mandatory regulations complied with European REACH standards.
