Doing Our Part.
Here at EMME we do the best we can to have ethical and sustainable practices. Not only are we trying to serve all you mamas, but also our mother earth. We want to be as transparent as possible with the process of how our clothes are made and brought you mamas. We may not be perfect yet, but we are constantly giving it our all to learn more and be better for our earth and for each other.
Many of our styles created in the US. We ship 100% of our orders from the US. We will use suppliers in the US and overseas. We wanted EMME to be as sustainable as possible. To us this also means sustaining our local economy. Both our pattern maker and parts of our manufacturing are local, which gives us an incredible opportunity to work very closely with each of them. Our seamstresses are paid a living and sustainable wage and the facility is a clean and healthy work environment. Everyone is always treated with respect and care. We love working so closely with the process of creating our clothes and are proud to know what is happening during every stage of their creation.
We have minimal pieces with each collection because we try to create items that will last. We want to be a brand that continuously supplies you mamas with classic pieces that will not be out of style the following year, so that you can maximize the use out of each EMME piece you purchase instead of having to buy a completely new wardrobe each time you are pregnant. We care about making maternity clothes that can be used for more than just a few months, which is why we put so much thought into our patterns. Each pattern has been carefully designed to successfully grow with you through pregnancy and last after your sweet babe has arrived. Our transitional maternity clothes are made for before, during, and after pregnancy.
Our fabric suppliers also pride themselves in their efforts to play their part in ethical and sustainable fashion. Our linen is 100% natural and environmentally friendly and is certified by the Oeko Tex organization who test for over 100 harmful chemicals; no part of it's production causes air, noise or water pollution. The mills where our fabric is created are in compliance with labor and environmental guidelines set forth by the government and our international community. The dye process itself for our custom dyed fabrics is environmentally friendly and does not involve any harmful chemicals in the process either. We care about giving you the best fabric we can.
We felt the need to make sure that our packaging is recyclable and did our best to minimize any unnecessary products in the packaging process. We kept it simple, yet classic.
