  1. We are interested in sustainable methods of production to minimize environmental impact as well as to give answers to ethical and social issues. That is why we work with local communities and we look for sustainable and socially responsible products with a fair price for all. We love to work with social workshops, such as Estel Tàpia in Barcelona (Spain) and Customizando in Madrid (Spain).

2. Our garments are produced in limited editions, they are seasonless in nature and timeless in design. As we defend a slow fashion, we are not obsessed in producing in a wide scale. We avoid overproduction by reducing waste.

3. We sell on line on irema-slowfashion.com avoiding the costs produced by the bricks-and-mortar stores as well as the waste produced by them. Also, we look for Fare Trade shops and eco concept stores to sell our slow products.

4. We are keen to keep our carbon footprint low during production and shipment. As we made our clothes in Europe, we prefer to use terrestrial transport to ship the majority our clothing from country to country.

5. We want to improve our impact on the environment and its community. We use certificate fabrics that are good for the earth and we use upcycling production cuttings.
