True handmade products that don’t use any machinery (or electricity) are perhaps the most sustainable form of production, albeit time consuming and expensive. Unique handmade touches add an element of beauty to many of tonlé’s products.

All of our smallest waste scraps are tediously hand cut into tiny strips and sewn back together to make “yarn.” The “yarn” is then either hand-knit or hand-woven into new fabrics to make our signature jewelry line. This process is both difficult and time consuming, but we believe the end result is as beautiful and unique as it is kind to the planet.
