Commitment to transparency
At Elementum we believe TRANSPARENCY is the first step toward better practices in the fashion industry and a tool for each of us to make more CONSCIOUS CHOICES.
Elementum pieces are designed as relationships. It is important to share with you all the connections they have, so that your relationship with your Elementum pieces will be as positive, slow, enjoyable and meaningful as it can be. Therefore on each product page you have access to information about our supply chain that made that specific product. Each of our garment also come with a Q&R code that shows a video of how to wear but also where and by who it was manufactured.
We are committed to transparency and will continue publishing at our website on a regular basis a list naming all sites that manufacture Elementum products.

Factories and Suppliers
Elementum is based in Caldas da Rainha - Portugal, where we also choose to do most of our supply, production and manufacturing. Our production chain is highly simplified. We focus on positive collaborations with our suppliers and keep the process close to us. 41,5% of our production is made in our studio and 52,8% is made in small family businesses in same district 60 km from our studio, the other 5,7% in The Netherlands. We know all our suppliers and work with them in person, visiting them regularly. Undertaking our own inspection program we establish long term relationships so that we can ensure product quality and good labour conditions.
We choose to keep our supply chain close to us because the proximity allow us to understand and contribute to the positive development of the local communities we have an impact on.
Besides the proximity aspect, manufacturing in Portugal means to produce under EU regulations witch is very strong/ supportive in terms of Human Rights, Workers Rights, Fair Wages as well as Heath & Safety and Environmental policies.
