Hearts that beat to the tune of kindness can change the rhythm of the world.

KINDNESS IS SO GANGSTA

We are the new century travelers; we let our hearts sing, and let our smiles shine. We are beautiful, soft and resilient. We trust and feel; we are vulnerable and we are grateful.

Each one of us is a tiny drop of the ocean, but we are all part of something greater.

We embrace the day and live in the moment because our soul is eternal. Our bodies will rise into ashes one day leaving behind a place for our children that they will still call Mother Earth. They will continue, like us, to breathe the same fresh air. They will continue to treat our planet with care, to nurture it, and feed it with love because we are all interconnected and giving back to Mother Earth is what she deserves.

That is why we make space for change, create with an open heart, and dance to a different beat...


FABRICS

Our fabrics are carefully selected and partly sourced from GOTS - Global Organic Textile Standards - certified partners. GOTS is recognized as the world leader for processing textiles produced from biological natural fibers. This means that in the harvest the fabrics are organic and that the entire production chain - fiber processing and textile finishing process - is completed without the use of any harmful chemicals.
At all stages of the processing chain, it is ensured that ecological and conventional fibers are not mixed, and that the ecological fibers are not contaminated.

GOTS defines the environmental requirements along the entire textile production chain, but also defines the social criteria that needs to be maintained.

Our silk is sourced in India and is called Ahimsa silk. Ahimsa is a Sanskrit word that literally translates to non-violence. Ahimsa is the abstinence from causing any pain or harm to any living creatures and stands for compassion. Therefore, the silk is also called peace silk and is produced from cocoons without killing the pupae inside.

We also source vintage fabrics or styles over the world and upcycle them into a new fashionable product.


SUPPLIES

90% of our supplies are either coming from natural sources, are recycled, GOTS or OEKO-TEX® 100 certified.

GOTS certified buttons, natural elastic rubber bands, OEKO-TEX® 100 certified nickel free hooks, but also conscious dyeing, are all contributing to the eco-conscious fashion circle of Tassel Tales. And of course our little tassels are made with love and cotton.
