At SILFEN, sustainability means responsibility. To us, this entails taking action, considering all stakeholders, and striving higher with each collection we create. As a global fashion brand run by young people, we are committed to improving the planet for both current and future generations.

From day one, we’ve worked to minimize our carbon footprint and made conscientious decisions regarding our social impact in the communities where we operate.

We are dedicated to functional designs, eco-friendly, recycled, and vegan materials. Our continuous goal is to improve and consistently introduce new sustainable initiatives and materials in every collection. Explore our principles below.


People are integral to our business. SILFEN is powered by individuals, whether they’re at our manufacturing plants, in our offices, at retail locations, or among any of our wonderful SILFEN ambassadors worldwide.

In fashion and retail, while we can explore new materials and production methods, the key challenge lies in how we utilize and discard our products. Our circularity approach revolves around prolonging our products lifespans and making mindful production choices.

Design is the heart of our business. Each product is carefully designed, curated and tested to ensure that the products will be cherished by both us and our customers. Continuously, we strive to enhance our products, making them more sustainable and ideally, flawless.


At SILFEN, we embrace a spectrum of social and environmental responsibilities. Our commitment extends to fostering ethical and socially responsible behavior within our organization and throughout our supplier network.

We enforce rigorous labor and human rights standards to ensure safe and fair working conditions in our factories. This includes a strict prohibition on child labor, as well as the prevention of verbal or physical abuse and discrimination against employees.

Our factory employees are entitled to a national living wage, pensions, and insurance coverage. We uphold their right to form unions without any interference from employers. We exclusively collaborate with SA8000 certified manufacturers.


We are dedicated to integrating circular practices into our supply chain. Whenever possible, we utilize recycled materials, such as our 100% rPET (Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate) for all our nylon bags. Continuously, we explore and incorporate more circular materials into our collections.

In collaboration with clothing rental companies like FJONG, we ensure that our products serve more people while minimizing waste. To encourage sustainability, customers can return their used SILFEN bags and get 40% off their next purchase at SILFEN in return. These pre-loved bags are resold at our sample sales.

In addition to receiving pre-loved bags, we host upcycling workshops and events at our Copenhagen office, inviting our community to join us in giving new life to their SILFEN bags.


Circularity and sustainability are integral to our design process. The design process relies on close collaboration and contact with our suppliers. While we embrace experimentation and artistry in our designs, functionality and versatility are paramount to a good design. This is why the majority of our bags feature extra straps, offering multiple usage options for different occasions.

Our commitment to quality extends to rigorous material and bag testing prior to production. We consistently seek to enhance our products, sourcing more durable materials that increase longevity without compromising on the design and our brand DNA.
