What is in for you…..Buy less in better quality….an ethical & sustainable brand, not fast fashion
Influence your world with the choices you make.
Sustainability within fashion is about pairing ethics with aesthetics. We are committed to sourcing materials that will have less impact on the environment. But it s not just the fabrics that make a product sustainable, it s working to ensure that the processes we use are kind to the planet.
Sustainable fashion can be stylish, luxurious and accessible.
Being able to control the whole process- starting from design, pattern- making, fabrics procurement, sampling and production- allows us to develop exquisite products with strong visual impact while monitoring our resources and making ethical decisions. With a strong sense of responsibility towards the environment, @HEDARE you’ll find only sustainable fibers and fabrics, which use less water and exert less waste along the way, making your buys better for the environment.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCT CERTIFICATIONS
“Biobased” certifications. Renewability means having a recyclability cycle between 1 and 5 years, in balance with the natural cycle of the ecosystem. Non renewable resources such as plastic and synthetic fibers, on the other hand, impoverish the ecosystem and will not be available for future generations.
We measured the renewable content of our leather in terms of the percentage of organic carbon content cut of the total carbon content.
This measurement is certified by the USDA (US Department of Agriculture) through the Biobased label for products derived from renewable sources. The renewability of Gruppo Mastrotto Express leather ranges between 70% to 90%.
Sustainability issues are divided into three main area Environment, Economy and Social, in line with the ESG principles promoted by the European Union and with the objectives of the 2030 Agenda.
Today Gruppo Mastrotto Express is Carbon Neutral: it produces ZERO greenhouse gases in its manufacturing processes.
THE “BLAUER ENGEL” CERTIFICATION
Blauer Engel is a globally recognized environmental label. Blauer Engel-certified leather guarantees a higher and more stringent level of eco-friendliness than standard certifications.

Blauer Engel certified leather guarantees:
- high environmental standards in the manufacturing process
