About Living Crafts
Motivation: "Sustainability is not a fashion term. Quite the opposite - and we were proud of this tradition. We have been successful in manufacturing eco-textiles for almost 25 years, applying environmentally friendly and socioeconomic methods. We value credibility, consistency, and trust, and as a result, we get to work a fresh every day with joy and enthusiasm. Why? Because we believe that it's the only way to create transparency and sustainability. - Frank Shell (managing director).
That is why we pay close attention to fair working conditions at our production sites; we avoid the use of pesticides and chemical additives for growing and processing our raw materials. That’s also the reason for choosing equipment which is operated thermo-mechanically only. Hence, we choose eco-friendly, poison-free colours for our fabrics and make sure that we reduce the environmental impact when transporting our goods. Our products are based on experience, trust and competence. We are not interested in fleetingness. Our designs are timeless as LIVING CRAFTS epitomises consistency. We want to pass on to our clients the things we have learned over the years in business. To us, our ecological persuasion is more than a business close to nature.
History: LIVING CRAFTS began as a sole-trader-business in a garage. Persuasion and stamina have turned it into an eco-friendly company which has been pursuing its traditional values consistently. Being responsible towards nature is first and foremost for LIVING CRAFTS. This maxim dictates the strict ecological guidelines and parameters in our production and manufacturing processes as well as in trading and transporting our LIVING CRAFTS goods. We think in line with nature and our times. That is the reason for funning a research and development department which looks into the use of natural fibres which have not been used up to now. Our raw materials are grown organically; our colours are free from poison. We condition our textiles without using any chemical additives. That’s our LIVING CRAFTS standard. In order to stick to it, we are constantly checked by independent institutes. Although we have moved out of the garage, our ideals have remained constant. We feel obliged to the textiles of nature.
Quality Controls & Fair Trade
Our persuasion. LIVING CRAFTS, as a company, is conscious of its responsibility towards nature and the environment. Hence, all of our production processes are geared towards that. To us, cooperating with and being fair with regard to the environment, our suppliers and customers is of the utmost importance.
Our standards. In addition to paying attention to the certification of our textiles pursuant to Control Union and Naturland, we are also particularly interested in the socioeconomic standards at our production sites. Most of our factories work in accordance with the SKAL guidelines as well as the SA 8000 social standards. Fair trade is a matter that is close to our heart. This includes adequate wages, fair working conditions and long-term partnership contracts with our producers. Naturally, we also pay attention that ecological requirements are met at our production sites abroad as well. This is mainly about adequate storage places, cleanness and the right treatment of our raw materials without the use of pesticides and herbicides. Our site in Germany is by no means excluded from our socioeconomic ambitions. Here, we endeavour, as much as we can, to work on the area of conservation and toward social justice.
Our controls. Independent institutes such as Control Union (CU) check whether we adhere to our guidelines. The tests are carried out by the various manufacturing companies themselves in accordance with our quality directives. In addition, we have our textiles checked regularly by external laboratories which test them for harmful substances.
Dyeing We dye out fabrics without heavy metals and formaldehydes. Our dyes are non-poisons and gentle on sensitive skin.
The dyes. We dye fabrics without heavy metals, weighting agents, complex agents, and formaldehyde pursuant to the guidelines of Naturland and the International Association of the Natural Textile Industry (IVN). Our dyes are toxicologically harmless.
The process. Our fabrics are dyed in a water-dye bath. Afterwards, the dyes are fixed.
The conditions. Our factories have their own waste water treatment plants. In order to dye fabrics, a certain temperature is necessary. The waste heat which is generated in the heating process is used in our factories to generate electricity. Our factories also use wind energy.
Equipment We equip our textiles solely in a thermo-mechanical fashion and avoid chemical treatment of the fabrics altogether.
The process. The term equipping describes the physical/mechanical treatment of the fabrics to change their characteristics, adapt them to customer requests and to refine them. At LIVING CRAFTS, we equip our fabrics in a thermo-mechanic fashion only. First, the fabrics are washed; then they are crushed and roughened. Afterwards, the surface is steamed, fixed with heat or mechanically felted.
The characteristics. By applying the above methods, some of our textiles obtain a softer surface. Temperature treatment also prevents shrinking later on. Generally, our natural textiles are somewhat less soft than chemically treated fabrics since we avoid artificial additives such as for example bleach, resins, formaldehydes and salt.
Prints The production companies of LIVING CRAFTS print by using the screen printing technique. All pigments, pastes, dyes and additives that are required for this purpose, are water-based. The processes are in line with the directives of Naturland and the Control Union (CU).
Make & Production We produce our textiles in India and Croatia. Every step, from the raw material to the packing of the finished product is carried out under one roof to avoid long transport routes.
The production sites. All LIVING CRAFTS textiles are produced in India in accordance with socioeconomic and ecological standards. Generally, every step from the yarn to the refining all the way to packing the finished textiles is carried out under one roof. LIVING CRAFTS socks are an exception, they are processed in Croatia.
The process. The manufacturing process comprises mainly of the cutting of the fabrics as well as the joining of the different parts of entire articles, such as clothing items. The ingredients are added and everything is sewed into a finished item which is then checked.
Gli slip sono bellussimi, di un ottimo cotone, non sbiancato ma di colore naturale. Anche il modello sgambati veste molto bene. Ne ho comprati tanti e li consiglio!
Ho acquistato questo tipo slip per mia mamma, li apprezza molto sia per la vestibilità che per la qualità del materiale. Prodotto molto consigliato.
Intimo per tutti i giorni. Cotone morbido e confortevole indossato. Spiazza solo la forma perché sembra di indossare un capo molto molto più grande della propria taglia…poi però mi dotto tutto quello ok! Io vesto una 40-42 e ho scelto la taglia più piccola esistente.
Prima ne ho acquistato uno per provarlo... poi ne ho comprati altri due! Io mi trovo bene con il modello sgambato a vita alta, stanno aderenti il giusto per poter usare i salvaslip lavabili che così non si spostano. Il cotone è bello robusto, fresco e morbido. Di sicuro ne acquisterò altri!
Slip veramente buonissimo. Un cotone di quelli seri, puro e naturale al 100 per cento e si sente sulla pelle, sono super confortevoli, senza aggiunte di elastane e microfibre che a volte o a qualcuna procurano irritazione. Ne acquisterò altri perché questo modello mi sembra perfetto, non è troppo alto e indossato fa una bella figura.
Ottimo cotone naturale, un po' alti, non siamo più abituate allo sgamato dopo tanti anni di slip e pantaloni a "vita bassa" però comode
Per me troppo duri, buono il cotone probabilmente il tipo di confezionamento li rende rigidi
Molto morbidi, come una seconda pelle. Un po' alti ma molto comodi.
Ottimo prodotto slip molto morbidi e piacevoli da indossare
Ottimo cotone slip piacevoli da indossare
ottima, bel cotone pesante,
Non ne faccio piu' ameno .Ottimo cotone, morbido e naturale. Lo consiglio .
diversissimo da latri slip in cotone in quanto a tessuto, è un po' pesantino perciò preferisco usarlo con il freddo. Il colore è un beige chiaro.La sgambatura ottima. Porto una I/II ed ho preso la taglia più piccola 36/38 EU
Ottimo prodotto, conoscevo già la marca e non sbagliano un colpo. La differenza del cotone è abissale. Consigliato.
Buon prodotto. Confermo recensioni precedenti
Sono molto soddisfatta dell'acquisto un buon prodotto, cotone molto morbido, consigliato.
cotone eccellente e modello comodissimo.
ho preso una taglia in piu in caso restringesse e ne sono molto soddisfatta.
Sono comode, non danno alcun problema di prurito e arrossamenti della pelle, hanno un cotone consistente. Con i lavaggi (io le lavo fino a 60 oC) un po' si restringono, nonostante questo ho fatto riferimento alla corrispondenza tra taglia italiana e tedesca e mi sto trovando bene. Bisogna tener conto che non contengono elastane, quindi non fasciano il corpo come le mutande che normalmente si trovano in giro. Questo modello non ha la vita bassa e lascia libero il movimento delle gambe. Il colore del cotone naturale è molto particolare, anche se con il tempo si schiarisce. Ottimo prodotto per me!
Sono comodissimi! Li porto da anni, li sfinisco dall'usura e li ricompro uguali perché è raro trovare uno slip con una vestibilità così ampia e comoda e senza parti sintetiche a contatto con la pelle.
