PRODUCE RESPONSIBLY
Perona has built a vertically integrated supply chain to support responsible production practices, starting from raw material sourcing to finished goods. Responsible manufacturing lies at the heart of Perona and reflects our belief of ‘timeless products produced responsibly’. We approach product design by first assessing if it is timeless, functional and versatile. Resultantly, we move forth towards making the right choice of materials that will be used in crafting the product. This time staking process is a critical part of Perona’s design and development process.

MAXIMIZE CARE
Raw material quality is the key to product longevity and is carefully considered for each product, hand - in - hand with design. Most of our material choices are sustainably sourced materials, ranging from LWG certified leathers, 100% natural fabrics that are easily renewable, and recycled synthetic materials.

  • POLYESTERS AND PLASTIC

    Like conventional polyester, recycled polyester is a man-made fabric produced from synthetic fibres. Recycled plastic is used to make products such as accessories for bags like Zips etc. Recycled polyester and plastics make use of existing plastics like old water bottles or old PET bottles and by recycling single-use plastics one dramatically decreases greenhouse gas emissions as well as water usage compared to producing virgin polyester

  • REFIBRA LYOCELL

    This is a fibre made from a pulp containing cotton residue from cutting processes and wood. It therefore gives us the advantage of cotton waste recycled into a new fibre reducing the need to use virgin raw materials.
