Environmental factors are of high concern to us at Rattamatatt and although we are only small, we are trying to do our best for the cause.
One of the reasons we have a longer lead time for print to order styles is so that we can print to order to avoid wastage of fabric. This means we don't over print and gave extra fabric that will eventually go to landfill. By cutting by hand, we savour all the pieces and do our best to cut in the most efficient and economical way. Care is also taken to print on organic cotton as much as possible to avoid extra chemicals used in the processing of the base cloth.
All items are shipping in compostable bags that you can chop up and pop in your home compost or FOGO waste bins. We also use recyclable materials such as tissue paper and boxes and we try to minimise stickers or writing on the boxes so that they can be reused by you for other gifts, keepsakes or crafting for a smaller person! If you have to exchange sizes, we recommend turning your postage bag inside out and reusing in your parcel to us.
