Sustainability Promise

Sustainability Promise

Sustainability is engrained into our own personal philosophies here at Timeless Vintage Co, and in part, it inspired the creation of our brand. Our passion and appreciation of classic vintage fashion aligned perfectly with our commitment to support and promote sustainability. Buying vintage is the ultimate way to appreciate fashion in a sustainable manner.

 

We believe it’s important for a brand to be honest and open about the practices they have in place that show their commitment to protecting people and the planet. Fashion in particular, is an industry that contributes a high volume of waste and pollution, as well as expending a great number of resources. So, we have outlined and defined our philosophy below, plus the sustainable commitments we make through our business model and our packaging.

 

Our Philosophy

Our personal philosophy is centred in environmentalism. We care deeply about protecting the environment, but also appreciate the form, longevity and style of designer pieces. We merged these two devotions together by creating a platform where it’s possible to browse and buy pre-loved designer pieces. Reusing vintage designer accessorises and clothing is one of the best ways to make fashion sustainable.

 

Why Choose Vintage?

Clothes are produced at exceptional rates around the World. With fast fashion being one of the most insidious culprits of waste and pollution. The age of convenience has allowed fashion to develop into a fast paced, throwaway culture. Trends now move swiftly, and items are barely worn before they become unwanted and are thrown away.

 

Quality is also a huge issue with fast fashion. To reach hangers and shelves at record speed, craftsmanship and quality control is limited, and the end result is a product that cannot stand the test of time. Not to mention the lack of support and care that workers may or may not receive.

 

Choosing to buy high quality items does come at a higher price point, but it ensures you invest in a timeless piece that transcends the years and seasons. The exceptional craftsmanship of vintage designer pieces mean items can last for generations.

 

Buying vintage also allows you to wear and appreciate the beautifully crafted items of fashion powerhouses like Dior and Chanel, without paying the full costs that often accompany their pieces. Designer items have been crafted to last, and it is greatly reflected in their pricing. But buying vintage allows you to immerse yourself in the world of designer items at a reduced price point, however you still get to benefit from an item of exceptional quality, that is built to last.

 

It also allows you to easily add to your wardrobe without incorporating the chain of pollution that generally comes with the production of new clothing. From 1000’s of litres of water involved in material production, to toxic dyes and chemicals that can leech into waterways. Vintage fashion allows us to shop in a sustainable way.

 

Our Packaging

With our eco-minded philosophy, it was important for us to source packaging that was completely sustainable, and of course plastic free. So to find out about how each order is carefully and sustainably packaged, you can read further information below…

 

Our smaller items, like scarves, jewellery or purses, are wrapped in protective paper pouches. They are 100% recyclable and can be recycled in your kerbside collections, or local paper recycling bank.

 

Larger items, like handbags or hats will be carefully packaged into cardboard boxes. Which can again be recycled in kerbside cardboard collections or at a local cardboard bank.

 

Boxes are sealed with fully recyclable Kraft paper tape, instead of plastic based tapes, and our address labels are also paper based and not laminated, allowing for effortless and uncomplicated recycling.
