Fibres & Fabrics
Our collections are crafted in, where possible, natural, and recycled fibres. We also strive to minimize the use of harmful chemicals in our production processes.
Elka Collective is committed to responsible manufacturing practices in all areas of the brand. We exclusively collaborate with makers and suppliers who are certified and regularly audited for their adherence to fair working conditions and ethical compliance.
Our new ‘Zoe’ Basics range is made from 100% Certified Organic Superfine Cotton. By opting to use organic cotton, we can help to minimize our environmental impact while also avoiding the use of toxic chemicals and genetically modified seeds. This not only promotes biodiversity, but also has a positive impact on the air, water, and soil in cotton-growing areas, which in turn benefits the health of both farmers and local communities. At Elka Collective, we recognize the importance of supporting sustainable and responsible practices, and we are committed to doing our part to promote a healthier, more sustainable future.
We believe that luxury fashion can be achieved without the use of animal products. To this end, we have developed pieces using a leather alternative that offers the same buttery, high-end look and feel, without placing any demand on natural leather resources. Our leather alternative is crafted from a 100% Polyurethane main fabric with a 100% Viscose backing.
We choose to source from this trusted yarn supplier based in Dongguan, China.
