At Yome we integrate sustainability and responsible practices into our core business operations and decision-making processes. From sourcing materials, the designs, production, distribution, and customer service, we prioritize longevity, environmental conservation, and ethical considerations.
We are committed to creating thoughtfully made products that prioritize longevity in all its forms. Our vision is to design items that are built to last, both technically, physically, and emotionally, while considering the sustainability and responsibility of our production process. Our commitment to longevity is rooted in sustainability. We prioritize sustainability by selecting materials that contribute to the durability and extended lifespan of our designs.
A product's sustainability is closely tied to its ability to endure over time. By creating designs that customers will never outgrow, we reduce the need for frequent replacements, thus minimizing waste and resource consumption. By choosing Yak wool, renowned for its resilience and shape retention, we ensure that our products remain functional and appealing for future generations.
Additionally, emotional longevity is essential in our design process. We carefully select our colours and knitting techniques to create timeless designs that customers will cherish and maintain an emotional connection with, reducing the likelihood of discarding them due to shifting trends.
By prioritizing longevity, we contribute to a more sustainable future. Our products are intentionally crafted to endure, reducing the strain on resources, minimizing waste generation, and promoting responsible consumption. Through our Thoughtfully Made approach, we aim to redefine sustainability by emphasizing the lasting value and satisfaction derived from our thoughtfully designed and durable products.
We choose materials, such as Yak wool, not only for its resilience, but also their low environmental impact. Yak is a low carbon emission animal and naturally organic due to their diet and nomadic lifestyle. We ensure traceability and quality assurance throughout our supply chain, minimizing environmental impact and promoting responsible practices.
Production waste from carding is repurposed, in the local community, for upcycled carpets and fillings, minimizing waste and promoting circularity in our processes.
We recognize the social impact of our operations, and we are working with suppliers who aim to empower young Tibetans through our collaboration. They work directly with local communities along our supply chain, providing fair and sustainable livelihood opportunities. Additionally, 1% of the revenue is donated to their community development fund, supporting projects that benefit these communities.
STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT AND CONTINOUS IMPROVEMENT:
We actively engage with our customers, suppliers, employees, and local communities to understand their expectations and concerns related to sustainability and responsible practices. We value their input and strive to incorporate their feedback into our CSR strategy.
We embrace a culture of continuous improvement by regularly reviewing and updating our CSR strategy. We stay informed about emerging trends, best practices, and stakeholder expectations to adapt and innovate in our pursuit of thoughtfully made, sustainable products.
