Our Aim


As an ethically focused label, SISTA ÖF JAC believe in the conservation of natural resources through sustainable processes. We believe luxury fashion does not need to cost the Earth, and endeavour to reduce pollution, emissions and waste as a company. This ideology not only plays into our garment production, but the stories shared through our collections. Not only do we want to follow these guidelines, but promote them.





Responsibility


Through innovation and technological advancement, the world of sustainable fashion is an ever-evolving one that requires consistent reflection and improvement on business practices. As a label, SISTA ÖF JAC make it our responsibility and priority to continually seek and implement these opportunities as our promise to the environment, and the future.

To have a truly positive impact on the planet, sustainability needs to be shared process. We believe transparency in sustainable practice is incredibly important as it challenges our audience to consider their own sustainability efforts, and holds our pledge for continual improvement accountable. This are just some of the ethical and sustainable measures implemented into SISTA ÖF JAC's garment design and business practices. In the Studio The SÖJ studio endeavours to consider the life cycle of every element that comes into the environment. From energy efficient light globes, to the vintage and antique sourced furniture, and the pattern making paper which gets recycled into a worm farm - not a scrap goes into the bin without its other potential uses being explored first. The Garments Working with a sustainable supplier that only purchases from ethical oversea manufactures.
