We at ELISE SOM pride ourselves on being ethically responsible, cruelty free and eco-conscious while still upholding the luxury in our products. Elise’s work is rooted in nature, culture and traditions. We utilize handiwork of local artisans to uphold tradition and invest in the communities our products are made in.
ELISE SOM is proud to be a RSPO and GOTS certified company. All of Elise Som products are individually created using the finest materials while being ethical and sustainably sourced.
Porcelain: Elise Som uses Kaolin, a natural component extracted from the ground, and it is used throughout the entire collection.
Candles: Elise Som candles are certified RSPO. They are made of vegetable wax and essential oils, making them 100% natural.
Throws: Elise Som baby alpaca throws are made of the highest quality of fibers in the world. Our alpaca fiber is free of lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. Using alpaca fiber also promotes sustainable agriculture in the Andes of South America.
Linen: Our linen is guaranteed by GOTS to be made from organic fibers sourced with high level of environmental criteria along the whole supply chain. It also complies with social criteria, meaning it is a fair trade product. The dyes we use are AZO free and non-toxic.
ELISE SOM recognizes the importance of environmental protection and is committed to operating our business responsibly and in compliance with legal requirements.
We are always actively working towards minimizing our carbon footprint and our impact on the environment. The materials and packaging we use are eco-friendly and sourced from sustainable and accredited origins. All of our paper is recycled and the ink we use is vegetable or soy based.
Minimizing waste generation: We are constantly reviewing the recycling potential and the opportunities within each waste component category. This is the reason why we recycle our entire disposal.
