Learn how QUOD aims to be sustainable

About 90% of the styles of all QUOD collections use natural fibers, and with every new collection QUOD's aim is either to maintain this percentage or only increase it further.

The QUOD studio in New Delhi is a 100% hand-tailored facility and employs skilled tailors, seamstresses, and artisans who work and produce in a safe and comfortable studio-like environment.

This also means QUOD is a 100% made on-demand facility. We do not aim to mass-produce and create every garment with object and intent.

All ornamentation or embroideries on QUOD pieces are hand done from leftover/scraps of threads, fabric or tulle; aiming to minimize as much of waste as possible in the production cycle.

Most of QUOD's packaging is either home compostable, recycled, reusable, or a combination of these. What it means:

Compostable packaging is typically made from a number of renewable plant-based materials and/or bio-polymers. To be certified home compostable, a product must break down in home compost within 180 days and 90 days in commercial composting conditions.

Recycled packaging is made from previously used plastic products, including single use bags, bottles and other common plastic items. The plastic is processed at a recycling facility and put back into circulation, thus doubling its lifespan.

Reusable packaging is packaging that has a built-in second (and possibly third, fourth, etc.) use. While most packaging is typically single use, and recycled after it accomplishes its primary goal, reusable packaging can be used multiple times for a variety of functions.
