Just as various industries, such as the building and the organic foods industry, have recognized standards and labeling at the international level, Slow Luxury is a forum for recognizing and achieving new value assessments for luxury goods and experiences.
Goods and services are the “gift,” this is what we value and create of the earth’s resources and offer to others. A Maker’s positioning and goals towards these ‘The 10 Outer Commitments’ of luxury is the new standard. From seed inception to product offering, this is the dedication to the health of our planet and all beings.
All natural materials from plants or animals sourced compassionately from certiﬁed bio-luxury providers, no synthetic or petroleum based materials.
Promoting heritage, education, and craft, along with the bio-balanced manufacturing traditions of indigenous people.
Retaining important, long-standing traditional industries and skills e.g. weaving, shepherding, spinning, and balanced wildlife management.
Positive impact on local economy. ‘Local’ production of goods over out-sourcing internationally.
Traceability and accountability of source of materials.
Humane and organic treatment and management of plant and animal communities, in harmony with local and global eco system.
Environmentally friendly production techniques.
Planned whole product life cycle from design and manufacture to life beyond use, ultimately biodegradable. Least environmental impact, across supply chain and materials, cultivation, harvest, manufacture and distribution.
