For some, Luxury is about excess and waste. Luxury is associated with pleasure, individualism and fashion.
At Designer Clandestin, we believe that real luxury goods are by definition sustainable: they call for care, creativity and design, they need to be made from exceptional and wisely sourced materials and they are built to last.
We place an importance on durability and on the concept of fewer but better.
True luxury goods have sustainability built in. They will not go out of fashion and will last for generations. A nice piece of woodwork shall never end up in a landfill.
We are committed to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out the United Nations. The SDGs set an agenda for people, planet and prosperity, achieving a prosperous, inclusive and sustainable society for all by 2030.
The 17 SDGs were adopted by 193 states at the United Nations in September 2015.
Because we care about wood and would not exist without it. Woodwork shall never end up in a landfill !
Because being committed to the United Nations work is part of our history.
Because we are a global company with a Swedish perspective.
All our work is done locally, in Southern Sweden, a country with one of the most strict set of environment regulations in the world.
When not sourced locally, our woods are systematically certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
Our key partners are committed to SDG 12 and part of the United Nations Global Compact forum.
We are only using vegan or sustainable leathers. Sustainable leathers mean they are byproduct of local farming and agriculture. It is considered sustainable because the animals are not raised for the express purpose of using their leather for goods, they are primarily farm animals.
