Sustainability – LIYA Collective

Sustainability

LIYA Collective is a slow fashion brand making minimalist accessories for the modern woman. Our goods are thoughtfully designed in Canada and sustainably made around the world. While we're far from perfect, we're always trying to improve, and we promise to be honest and transparent about where we're at in the journey.

 

Design


LIYA products are inspired by minimalist designs and simple silhouettes. The collection uses neutral colors and prioritizes timelessness over trends, making classic pieces that you can wear for years and years to come.

Materials


The scarves are made from 100% Thai mulberry silk. The black and champagne scarves are screen printed with water-based inks, and the ivory scarf is a natural, undyed silk.

Supply Chain


The collection was developed in partnership with a series of small, family-owned businesses in Thailand, from the farmers to the fiber factory to the mill and sew shop. Each business has been in the family for generations, and continuously strives to improve their practices and processes in order to operate as ethically and sustainably as possible.

Shipping & Packaging


We're proud to offer carbon-neutral shipping on all LIYA orders, with contributions funding the Jarí Para REDD+ Avoided Unplanned Deforestation project in the Amazon Rainforest, a Verified Carbon Standard project certified by Pachama. All LIYA packaging materials are paper-based, and are 100% recycled, 100% recyclable, and 100% plastic-free.
