Sustainability

We create products with as little impact on the environment as possible. For you to hold on to as long as possible. 

As a company, we want our customers to be able to enjoy our products for a long time, be able to pass it on to the next generation and we want to create them with a good conscience. Therefore we find it vital for us to both be transparent with our customers about how and where our pieces are made, and to stay up-to-date with new innovations and constantly work to minimize our environmental impact. 

 

Our material

Big news : we are changing to an even more sustainable production where the innovative material is biodegradable over time and doesn’t contain any fossil carbon. This is an important step in restoring our natural forests and biodiversity. Coming 2023.

The first of its kind: We are taking our much loved 25Lamp to the next level.
First interior designed product ever made from a new groundbreaking biomaterial. 100% biobased and fossil free.

Where our wood comes from
In an effort to make our production even more environmentally friendly we source our wood from forests in Sweden that do not support clear cutting, as it is a process that results in rapidly declining biodiversity. Our suppliers instead choose which trees to cut down based on maturity and size, and therefore the ecosystem in the forests we buy from have functioning ecosystems where a myriad of species and trees of different ages and sizes are constantly maintained.

We want to participate in keeping our forests natural, beautiful and varied. As for our products, the quality of timber from the forests where we source our material is generally higher. This provides better conditions for the production of long-lived products. Meaning your products will last longer.

Production
All our furniture are locally produced in Sweden for as high quality as possible. Our clothing production is Stockholm, Sweden based. 

Skincare

Our skincare is locally and sustainably made in Croatia. All based on the golden nectar of Istria - immortelle oil, lavender, rosemary, grape seed, cedar, figs, citrus -perfected by local organic ingredients sourced by artisan producers and independent laboratories. The main ingredient is the powerful Immortelle oil, one of the most valued essential oils in the world and a superhero for your skin.

Materials
We always source FSC certified, sustainably reclaimed and ethical wood. Meaning we take the pieces that furniture producers normally would not want to use. By doing this all of our products are unique, as no two pieces of wood are the same. This creates a variety and one-of-a-kind creations, reminding us that they once were trees with knots and differences in color.

Rattan
Our rattan is FSC certified, handwoven and unbleached. This creates beautiful color variations that cannot be found in bleached rattan. As of now, rattan is the only material we import in our production. We believe it is of great importance to support sustainable production in the rainforests. Our producers are one of the few ones there that are sustainable and we want to help then develop their business in an effort to make the whole world a little more environmentally friendly.

 

Retail
Sustainable, long-lasting furniture should be available for everyone. But, as hand made products are expensive, we only sell our products in our own store today. We are currently looking into new even better production methods to be able to meet requests from retailers all over the world.

Do you want to become a retailer in the future? 

We would love to welcome you if you are brick-and-mortar retailer and are aligned with our mission: to work for a more sustainable way of doing things.
Please email hello@kovacfamily.com for more information.

Packaging
Our packaging is made of 100% recycled material. The label is printed on eco friendly paper and with sustainable ink made in a fabric powered entirely by solar cells, where the energy produced equals about 600 metric tons less emissions of CO2 per year.

Collaborations
On our journey to completely locally produced and environmentally friendly production we are always searching for innovations. At the moment, we're working to try a new plastic free glue developed in Sweden to name one current sustainable collaboration. Should you have a collaboration you'd like to discuss with us please send us an email.
