Slow Consumption

Yogipod is founded on slow consumption. The idea that you buy something you truly love and it’ll last forever. Obviously we love repeat customers but truly hope that every product on the site is made to last.

A lot of care, skill and love goes into every part of manufacture and by purchasing you are helping to support artisans in the Jaipur region of Rajasthan. It’s these artisans that hand carve the blocks for the prints, hand print the designs and hand embroider the throws. Hand made. Slow. Beautiful

Sustainable Manufacturing

As all products are made by hand by myself, Georgie, I can be as sustainable as possible in how they are made.

  • Lay planning and cutting out of pattern pieces is carefully planned to minimise waste
  • Any “waste” offcuts are either composted, made into the Zero Waste Pouches or used to attach the affirmation swing tags to your purchase
  • The sewing thread used is made from recycled polyester
  • The buckwheat hulls that are used are actually a waste product from buckwheat production and are all organic and produced in the UK

Packaging and Delivery

When packaging and delivering your products we try to be as gentle to the planet as possible while also protecting your purchases

  • Mailing bags derived from sugar cane are used for small items. These are reusable as well as recyclable and carbon neutral
  • Paper mailing bags are used for larger items . These are fully recyclable and made from renewable resources
  • Any packing tape used is paper tape
  • Tissue paper used is recycled which is why it’s sometimes a little grey!
  • Wherever possible we use a carbon offset delivery courier. Unfortunately at the moment due to the Covid-19 pandemic this is not possible

Every Order Plants a Tree

Working alongside Treesisters every single product order that is made with Yogipod plants a tree. If you’d like to find out more about Treesisters have a read here
