SUSTAINABILITY

our sustainable supply chain

SEKBI Bogolan walks its own path of sustainability inspired by the traditionally crafted Bogolan. True to the spirit of Bogolan, we crafted a sustainable supply chain which is efficient, ethical and visionary. In our mission to operate sustainably, our customers will have access to remarkable style while feeling good about themselves and the environment.

Our signature print is made with a reduced ​use of materials, energy and water by choosing a pigment printing process instead of reactive dye. This pigment printing process consumes very little water to begin with, making it an eco-friendly solution in the textile printing industry.

Once an order is placed, raw materials and packaging made of recycled pulp are sourced within 2 weeks to eliminate textile and energy waste. Thereafter, manufacturing begins in Mauritius over a period of 2 weeks​ ​and shipping is made within a period of 2 weeks. This process helps to align demand with production to avoid unnecessary waste.
