FABRICS MADE FOR THE LONG RUN

Mini Rodini carries one of the most sustainable ranges on the market, their collections include over 99% products made from sustainable material yearly. They use non-conventional materials such as organic cotton, recycled polyester, and Modal®. They also have a selection of upcycled products.

 CHALLENGING AND CHEMICALS

Chemicals are needed in all kinds of textile products including Mini Rodini's, so the challenge is to avoid the toxic ones that are harmful to the environment, animals and they health. Already in the design phase, they eliminate a massive amount of harmful substances by choosing sustainably better materials with third party certifications and make risk analyses to assure all products comply with their requirements.

 RESPONSIBLE WASTE

To minimize waste and take better care of it, Mini Rodini use environmental standards that ask the suppliers to have polices such as water treatment plants and sustainable chemical management and do their best to optimize every batch of production. 

 

SOCIAL RIGHTS

Mini Rodini takes it's social responsibility seriously throughout every part of the company – from design and manufacturing to communication and sales. As Mini Rodini does not own any factories, they source factories with sustainability and fair labor as key criteria and priority and therefore choose facilities already certified with the well known third party standards such as Fairtrade and SA-8000.

 

THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAIL

The choice of material does not only apply to the main fabrics, but also the trims, labeling, and packing of a product. Today at Mini Rodini the majority of all these details are organic, recycled or biodegradable. Additionally, they reuse cartons from our suppliers for outgoing shipments to customers, our stores, and retailers.

 

THE ART OF KEEPING A PROMISE

To assure that materials and processes are as promised, Mini Rodini works with various certifications and standards covering materials, production and employees.

MINIMUM WAGE VS. LIVING WAGE

The textile industry is responsible for millions of people, but the legal minimum wage is standard for most workers. This wage is set by the government, and in some countries, it covers only 30% of your actual needs and is impossible to live on.

A living wage is a fundamental human right, but still far from reality.

Mini Rodini has been working on a Living Wage project since 2014.
