Our Sustainability and Eco-friendly process
Here at Triqis sustainability is at the forefront of everything that we do,
minimising any possible negative impacts on the environment and biodiversity is very important to us.
All of our products are designed and manufactured in our Wimbledon design studio, which allows us to have detailed insight into each step of our entire design and manufacturing process. It furthermore allows us to continuously improve our manufacturing efficiency, but most importantly sustainability.
Design & Manufacturing
In 2019, shortly after Triqis was founded, we started to reflect upon our core activities and focused on the sustainability of each of our processes.
When designing new products we always strive to improve the quality, as well as introduce new processes to reduce waste and energy consumption, this is why 95% of our manufacturing process is human-centered, most of our products being hand-made.
All of our manufacturing materials are sourced from local suppliers within the United Kingdom, this also applies to our shipping and packaging.
In addition to prioritising local suppliers which helps us to reduce our carbon footprint, we further look for the supply of ecological materials. For example, most of our product range is made of a water-based eco-resin, which unlike most resins does not contain any trace of vegetable or synthetic oil, extraction of oil being one of the greatest causes of deforestation and ecosystem disruption.
We have also drastically cut down our water consumption by starting to recycle the water used within our manufacturing process. We did this by developing a water system that operates independently from any main water supplies, cleaning and filtering it, allowing it to be reused used for manufacturing.
Since the beginning of the Covid19 pandemic and the rise in online business, one thing remains clear, and that is that there is a lot of work to be done regarding waste caused by packaging, this is why all of our packaging is easily recyclable and reusable. We have also opted into using our courier's more sustainable shipping initiatives.
We want to make our products available to everyone, however, at Triqis we do not believe in sales at all cost, Design and sustainability are what matters most, for this reason, we carefully choose who we work with, partnering with retailers which share the same values as us.
For example, you can find our products in Wolf & Badger a company that firmly believes in protecting the environment and has even been awarded
