THE WILDTHINGS MISSION: WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO
Here at Wildthings Collectables, we create jewellery that is inspired by the beauty of Bali, the style of Amsterdam and the relaxed nature of Lisbon. We use our genuine adoration for travel and the exploration of different cultures as a motivation to create unique pieces of jewellery that bring out your bold side. We do however, wholly acknowledge that as a jewellery brand, and therefore, by default, a fashion brand, we must act responsibly in our production and operations, and with that, communicate transparently with our customers.
Wildthings Collectables is a brand striving for optimal social and environmental consciousness. This means we clearly and concisely express our current efforts and milestones, whilst sharing our future goals with transparency. As a jewellery brand we are centred around the consumption of new products, and with the creation of new pieces we acknowledge that it isn’t possible to be 100% sustainable. However, we act with intent and have heavy involvement in the production of our pieces, from design to delivery, to reduce and eliminate impact on our planet wherever possible. With this, we prioritise purpose, longevity and quality over profit and over-consumption. Our goal is to become as environmentally and ecologically responsible as possible, as a small business centred around slow fashion.
OUR SUSTAINABLE STEPS
Vision for the future
Our main objectives for the future include going completely carbon neutral, and improving our packaging to more sustainable materials so you can continue to wear and love your favourite jewellery brand!
We organised our first Green Week in an effort to no longer encourage the over-consumption centered around Black Friday sales. We donated 20% of the proceeds of Green Week to The Ocean Cleanup.
As part of our social impact, we created our face mask project to support Balinese families during Covid
We started using completely FSC certified materials for our packaging
Our delivery distributor became completely carbon neutral for everywhere in the Netherlands
Wildthings Collectables was founded, with each silver piece made from 100% sterling silver, and each gold- plated piece made of 60% recycled brass
OUR VALUE CHAIN
We wanted to give you an insight into where your favourite Wild pieces come from and the journey that brings them from Bali to your doorstep. Below is a map of where our materials are sourced and made into our stacking rings, chunky chains, statement hoops and more…
In Denpasar, our sterling silver, gold plated and solid gold pieces of jewellery are created in an ethically-run workshop.
Our loved PANSY ceramics are handmade in Amsterdam by Alina, a joyful creative with her own ceramic studio, whilst our Secret Salt x Wildthings Collectables t-shirts are also designed and sustainably produced in very small quantities in the Netherlands. Our distribution centre is also located in the Netherlands, which holds our stock, ready to be delivered to you.
The beautiful hats that we sell in our collaboration with Old Habits Die Hard x Wildthings Collectables are all slowly produced in Portugal in limited quantities.
For our piece that includes a pearl design, we source these unique fresh-water pearls from a producer in Thailand.
There are a total of 7 items on our website that are not made in Bali but produced in a gold-plating factory in China, due to the chunky nature of the design pattern. Our large giftbox is also produced and sent from China to our distribution centre.
TODAY & TOMORROW
Whilst we’re proud of how we operate as a sustainably-driven company, we believe we can only continue to grow consciously as a brand if we strive to better our environmental output. So, here’s how we’re paving our path for our most sustainable future.
