At Hobes, we’re committed to minimising our environmental impact. And this starts with our online store. We are an online-only business, which means no physical stores or retail spaces. On average, e-commerce stores use 30% less energy than traditional retail, we'd say that's a win in itself.
Our product philosophy is based around “slow movement” design and development. We produce a tightly edited range of simple, classic and timeless styles in a range of colours and materials. We produce very small runs that are available until sold out, and we work hard to ensure we never have wastage in our production.
We’re working towards being a virgin plastic free brand. In the last year we’ve replaced all packaging and materials with sustainable options. Your Hobes will now be delivered to you using only recycled, biodegradable or compostable materials. We’re working with our supply chain to continue our focus of being completely virgin plastic free and we will keep you updated with progress on this here.
We are constantly working on new products, practices and development with our partners to achieve our goals and to ensure as a brand, we are working towards a more sustainable future. Watch this space.
