As our name suggests we consider ourselves a KIND brand. We are passionate about creating and making beautiful pieces of jewellery but not at the cost of our planet or the people we share it with. This means we are constantly aiming to minimise the impact of our actions, both in and out of the studio. We also hope to be a positive contribution to both the fashion & design world and our wider community as a whole. That said, we also understand that we aren’t perfect (who is?) and there is always room for improvement. We are a young brand, finding our way around the industry and are always open to new ideas and ways of working. Ethics and sustainibility are at the core of the KIND ethos, it’s an ongoing conversation and a movement that we want to be a part of. We want to offer transparency to our customers and are always happy to answer any questions you have. Here is a little bit about how we operate and as we grow and evolve so will this list… We believe that is the true path to sustainable change!
In the Studio
All Pieces of KIND Jewellery are handmade in London by Tansy Haak making them 100% sweat shop free.
We aim to make quality pieces of fine jewellery which are built to last and offer a free repair service for damaged items.
We only use responsibly sourced materials, including 100% recycled, Fairmined© & Fairtrade precious metals to produce our collections. You can read more about them on our materials page.
Any Components which we can not source in certified 100% recycled metal sourced from accredited Hatton Garden Suppliers who are regularly audited by the Responsible Jewellers Council or can provide written evidence that their materials are ethically produced. This means that any newly mined gold or silver used has to come from mines which adhere to standards regarding human rights, environmental impact and working practices.
We use Vegan Polishing Products and Non-toxic (food grade) pickle to remove oxidisation after soldering.
We use Bio degradable Baggies to store all of our stock.
We recycle every last scrap of metal whilst making new pieces.
We use loo roll from ‘Who gives a crap’ - Made with 100% forest friendly bamboo, No inks, dyes or scents AND they donate 50% of profits to build toilets around the world! It’s a no brainer really!
As a Brand
Aiming for ‘zero waste’ means we reclaim, recycle & re-purpose wherever possible.
We 'stand up for trees' by off setting our Carbon footprint via The Woodland Trust - Our support means they can plant trees that reduce our carbon footprint, mitigating the emissions we create by making our collections & shipping our orders.
Our packaging and promotional material are recycled and recyclable and we avoid any unnecessary printing by emailing invoices rather than including them in orders.
We have built long lasting relationships with our UK based, suppliers to support our economy & community.
