OUR POSITIVE IMPACT
“Not just a Vegan Bag”
At Alexandra K, we're paving the way for a new era of fashion. Our modern and innovative brand designs and manufactures bags and shoes with the environment, animals, and people in mind. We use cutting-edge fabrics and technologies to create stylish, sustainable products that are truly one-of-a-kind.
Our handbags and footwear are made from plant-based fabrics, such as corn leather, which is made from 75% corn biomass. This means our products have a low environmental impact, using little water and renewable energy in their production. Plus, our Italian manufacturers have mastered the art of synthetic materials, creating products that are strong, durable, and indistinguishable from natural leather.
Each product with the Alexandra K logo is unique, crafted with care and featuring surprising, innovative materials. We believe that fashion should be inspired by nature and technology, and our brand is a shining example of that vision. Discover the future of fashion with Alexandra K.
HOW WE WORK - SUMMARY
At our company, we only use tried-and-true materials in our collections. Our manufacturing process has a long history in Italy, and 75% of our materials are made from plant biomass.
We use only 100% organic cotton. This is the kind of production that does not use toxic pesticides.
We use innovative fabrics of the latest technology that are made up of 75% plant biomass. The PU (polyurethane) we use is free of petroleum substances and is primarily composed of water components. Additionally, everything we use in our production process is 100% PVC-free.
All our labels and packaging are made of recycled paper.
We produce our bags and shoes locally with the help of skilled leatherworkers. This reduces our carbon footprint and ensures that our products are of the highest quality. With the Alexander K logo, you can be sure that your bags and shoes will last for years to come.
LUXURY REDEFINED: CORN LEATHER SETS NEW STANDARDS
Corn leather has been a staple of Alexander K's collection for several seasons now. We value it for its durability, quality and appearance. Made of 75% corn pulp, it is a remarkable achievement in the field of sustainable fashion.
Most of our materials are produced in Italy by a company with a long tradition of quality. The manufacturer has numerous certificates, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001, which confirm its commitment to sustainable development and safety.
We are proud to use corn leather in our handbags, jackets and footwear and believe it is a powerful example of how fashion can be both stylish and sustainable.
FABRIC PRODUCER CERTIFICATES
BioVeg products are certified under the "BioPreferred" program of the US Department of Agriculture, which certifies that the bioprocess is greater than 25% by weight. Measurements by the University of Georgia laboratory have shown that some of our articles can exceed 80% organic content (ISO 16620-4).
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certifies the sound management and traceability of the viscose used in our BioVeg products. It guarantees that the product has been made of raw materials from forests, in accordance with its basic standards: ethical forest management and the GRS care chain.
A GLOBAL RECYCLING STANDARD
The Global Recycling Standard (GRS) certifies that recycled polyester is post-consumer recycled. The GRS recognizes the importance of recycling in developing a sustainable production and consumption pattern, encouraging resource reduction and improving the quality of recycled products.
Alexander K bags are unique in that each one comes with a certificate from animal-friendly organizations. We have been working with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) since the beginning of our company, and in 2014 we were awarded the PETA-approved vegan certification. This certification guarantees that all of our suppliers are reliable and that all of the materials we use in the production of our bags are vegan. Additionally, in 2015 we signed a declaration with Fur Free Retailer and the Otwarte Klatki organization, pledging not to sell any products made from natural fur. This certification is held by many well-known brands such as ZARA and ASOS, and we are proud to be among them.
Over the years, the Alexandra K brand has been recognized with numerous awards and accolades. In 2014, we were awarded the prestigious Vegan Fashion Award 2014 by German PETA for our Casabel Chilli 1.5 bag. This award is often given to Stella McCartney, and we were honored to receive it at the beginning of our company's history. In 2018, we received another award from PETA in the UK for best vegan bag, this time for our innovative apple leather. The winners of this award included luxury brands such as Gucci, Burberry, and Michael Kors. PETA France also recognized us with an award for best vegan jacket in 2018, for our Biker Jacket - our first foray into the clothing category. In 2021, we were awarded the "Promising Polish Brand" title at the 23rd "Fashion Excellence 2021" gala, which is considered the most prestigious fashion competition in Poland.
