Hello 2021

Bit of a rocky start of 2021 but we are back! We are thrilled to show you what has been cooking at Seven Seas under lockdown.

You guys asked for hoodies without a zipper through our instagram stories and we listened to you!

As I’m writing this now, we already sold out on our new collection but we will make sure to restock them in the fall. In between we are working on a summer edition.

We adapted, changed and replaced a few things since last year. We are doing our best to cut down on waste and plastics to achieve a higher sustainability. Therefore we use a compostable as well as reusable mailer for our small packages. They are bio based polymer and made up of plant materials such as regular field corn and wheat straw. If you don’t have a compost at home, you can look at local options for communal compost sites, or somewhere you can drop off items for commercial composting. Also, you may notice that some of our cardboard shipping boxes are recycled and already reused.

The wrapping tissue, tape and mini stickers that we use are eco-friendly. They have been made using acid free paper, soy based inks and are recycled FSC certified. All manufactured in Europe.

Your garment is organic cotton, recycled polyester, vegan approved and part of fair wear foundation. Everything has been printed by a small local business in Eindhoven.

Since improving sustainability is one of our goals, we also are looking for longevity. We believe longevity contributes to sustainability. By carefully choosing quality garments that will hold up during wash and wear, we hope you will enjoy our products. It’s our responsibility to avoid putting another item out there that will feed the fast-fashion industry and consumerism. It’s important for us to make small changes that will make a big difference.

Let us know if you have any feedback and do not hesitate to tag us in your feed wearing your new merch! @sevenseas_atelier and hashtag #sevenseasatelier

Yours truly,

Jeroen Franken & Kim-Anh Nguyen
