Our Mission and impact

Impact through design

Sustainable production & fair prices

White Label Project works with carefully curated social enterprises and initiatives which are led by women or youth and work with marginalized groups, such as indigenous or impoverished communities, all focusing on improving the well-being of their members.

We pay fair prices determined by the crafter and creatives we work with and offer at least 50% of every order upfront to ensure that raw materials can be purchased, and producers can be paid. 

Transparent pricing and reinvesting profits

We return the profit we make (sales minus costs) to the crafters and creatives behind each product. As we aim at maximizing the value generated for the brands we work with, we minimize our costs to the necessary to offer you the highest quality design pieces from around the world.

The chart mirrors the average revenue distribution. We are currently able to attribute around 55% of our sales price to the brands behind each product we feature. After taxes, which account for 25% in Sweden, we cover all other expenses such as shipping, warehouse, insurances as well as branding and marketing with the remaining 20%.

For each collection we sell, we define the best way of returning our profits together with our crafters and creatives aiming at the highest positive impact. Examples for projects we could invest in are professional development trainings provided by local institutions or community projects to improve access to water or energy as well as health and education. 

We want to encourage slow fashion and well-considered investments in quality design, which is why we try to sustain from seasonal sales. Our business model is based on fair wages and transparent and fair pricing,  where continuous sales would only undermine the quality and craft behind each an every product.

Environmental leadership

White Label Project aims at minimising its environmental impact in every possible way. We strictly use minimal and recycled paper-based packaging (no plastic!), organic materials for our own collections and ensure all printing is done with biodegradable colors and sustainable material.
