"Our materials are sourced thoughtfully and without harm. Our name, inspired by the solar deity responsible for the well-being of life on earth, embodies feminine power and a nurturing spirit. In essence, Saulė is the passionate antithesis of fast fashion."
Saulė uses the best and highest quality materials it can find. It aims to minimize its carbon footprint and support local economies. It plans its supply chain to minimize its impact on the environment and offer solely carbon neutral shipping via Offset.
Saulė has partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every pair of earrings sold. It donates 5% of the profits to Detroit Hives and fabric scraps to local animal shelters.
Saulė uses a fair proportion of organic materials such as GOTS certified organic cotton and linen. It also uses Piñatex pineapple leather, upcycled vegan leather, FSC certified wood, and glass.
The label is committed to never use synthetic textiles made of nonrenewable fossil fuels and plastics. It avoids virgin plastics, polyester, nylon, spandex, and acrylic.
Saulė produces its jewelry locally in Detroit. Its clothes are made in Poland with local linen. It ensures high production standards, fair working conditions, and the payment of living wages to all employees in its supply chain.
However, the fashion brand doesn't indicate how often audits are conducted to identify potential risk areas.
Saulė doesn't sell any product made from animal-derived materials. It believes in guilt-free fashion and is 100% vegan.
Saulė aims to minimize its carbon footprint and its environmental impact. However, it doesn't show any measurement of its water usage, pollution, and waste across its supply chain. It doesn't have any clear sustainability goal or timeline to improve in the future either.
