OUR RESPONSABILITY

 

SUSTAINABILITY

From the very beginning, a dedication to social responsibility and respect for the environment have been intrinsic to Ghisò identity.

At Ghisò, we aim at doing right for our communities, people and planet.

 

ECO DESIGN

We strive to create the most beautiful, desirable products with the least impact on our environment. Our conscious values are also the inspiration behind our innovation.

We paid special attention to all our developments. Each new product, and its environment, must ensure an adequation between quality, sustainability, refinement, and respect for the environment, constantly seeking and challenging the best ways to produce, always with respect for the customer and natural resources.

 

MATERIALS

Every material used in our products has been selected to meet our requirements.

As a priority, we will use eco-friendly material. Nevertheless, we must guarantee quality, and sometimes we will choose a different option, while continuing our research in order to obtain the most eco-responsible end product.

Ecological and recyclable will be our priority in the supply of these. For our leathers, they are all vegetable tanned. Our cottons and fabrics are made in Italy, environmentally friendly and sourced from controlled and certified suppliers.

 

TRANSPARENCY

For too long, we’ve been given little to no information on the actual origin and manufacturing conditions of the product. We don’t much about the product beside where it’s made. We’re held together to start a movement toward asking more about ‘‘where your items are coming from’’. We like to give you the power to know exactly what you are buying by breaking down every product to its raw materials and trace back to their origin.

 

PROXIMITY AND SUPPLIERS

We source our materials and products through a carefully selected network of suppliers. Our supply chain is predominantly composed of small workshops based in Italy and Switzerland that specialise in specific techniques and processes.

 

PRICING

Ghisò offers luxurious, durable products at a very attractive price. At equal quality, a comparable product is 1,5 to 2 times more expensive. We are no better than our competitors, but we have chosen to apply coefficients between the cost of the product and the selling price, which is much lower than the industry average. This is made possible by selling directly to consumer with no middle agents.

Our goal is to respect our customers, and to offer luxury product for a fair price.

 

DURABILITY

We’re not big on trends, we make essential products that people can hold on for a long time. We want you to wear our pieces for years, even decades, to come. The concept to buy things that are going to last you your lifetime instead of something that’s meant to be thrown away the second you open it.

 

PEOPLE

As a sustainable luxury fashion brand, we often find ourselves talking about products ans the planet, but it is people who make it all happen – from the farmers who grow our materials to the conscious consumers who purchase them.

We want to have a positive impact on everyone we depend on and for those who depend on us in return.

We understand that as a business, we have a responsibility to respect human rights. We believe everybody in our supply chain should be treated with respect and dignity. We also believe each person should earn a fair wage and be recognised and valued equally. We aim to build modern and resilient supply chains that provide desirable jobs, foster people’s skills, strengthen workers’ voices and advocate for vulnerable groups.

We build open and collaborative relationships with our suppliers and take the time to understand the complexities and contexts of our sourcing regions.

We are committed to playing our part in helping to create a better and more equal world, as envisioned in the un’s sustainable development goals.

 

TRACEABILITY

We love our products, and since the design, we want to know everything about them. For this, all the elements of our pieces are known, traced, and qualified.

And as we seek proximity between our raw material manufacturers and our assemblers, we guarantee local manufacturing.
