Responsibility of Aleksiina Design:
Aleksiina Design's products are manufactured in our own production facilities as local production in Jyväskylä and Tampere.
Our employees are trained adult professionals.
Ecological and ethical practices strongly guide product design and manufacturing.
The material of the textile products is mainly fabrics made of natural fibers and, if possible, always organic.
In jewelry, we mainly use birch and oak plywood made in Finland. Other types of wood for jewelry also come from Finnish manufacturers. Acrylics come from England. Jewelry paints are water soluble and non-toxic. The metal parts are silver-plated jewelry metal or surgical steel.
Instructions for washing products can be found in the online store in connection with product information. Textile products have care instructions marked on the product.
Aleksiina Design's products are of high quality and inspected when they leave for the customer, but errors will occur and we will rectify the situation within a reasonable time after the product has been introduced.
Textile products are not packaged in plastic at any stage of production or delivery. We use materials made of paper and cardboard for shipments.
Waste is properly sorted and the amount of mixed waste is actively reduced.
REPAIR OF A USED PRODUCT
We will repair the used products of Aleksiina Design if it is possible at a cost level.
RETAIL OF A USED PRODUCT
You can bring the used intact and clean Aleksiina Design product to our store for resale. You can decide the price yourself and we will take a 30% refund on the sale of the product. You get the rest of the money in the form of a gift card and you can use it for our Riiminka and Aleksiina Design products in our stores or online store.
DISPOSAL OF USED PRODUCTS
All Riiminka and Aleksiina Design textiles can be returned to RIIMINKA & Aleksiina Design stores at the end of their service life. We are still waiting for a suitable delivery point or use for this waste. Any suggestions?
Transportation is handled mainly with Posti's carbon-neutral services. We will compensate for other deliveries in the future.
TRACE OF CARBON
Our annual carbon footprint on March 5, 2020 is: 26.0 t CO2eq The biggest emissions come from the district heating, electricity consumption and business travel we include between the three RIIMINKA & Aleksiina Design stores (people + transport of goods). The trips are mainly made by train (about 78,000km / year) and by car (28,000km / year). In electricity, we will switch entirely to renewable energy for commercial premises and we will still have our mark on it. The final calculations will be completed during the spring and in May we will offset the remaining carbon with emissions trading.
We have not calculated our carbon footprint 2020 and 2021.
