- The Brand -
OUR OBJECTIVE IS SIMPLE
At CF, collections are created reflecting the values of likeminded individuals who are passionate about quality and longevity in their clothing and equally conscience about contributing to a more honourable clothing process. Appreciating special attention to detail and valuing true style over fast fashion trends, Carolyn Ferreira provides Elevated Essentials that are conceptual in their design while still maintaining function and ease.
VISION / MISSION / VALUES
Our identity rests on a simple minimalistic philosophy of quality over quantity. Buying less and buying better means focusing on the more important things in life. Being proud of our product means being proud of where and how it is created. Carolyn Ferreira strives at every point of the process to challenge traditional methods, offer transparency and work harder to make better choices for the environment each step of the way. Respecting and showcasing the true ideals of luxury while maintaining a respect for natural resources, the people who create them and the planet alike.
CLOTHES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD ON THE INSIDE AND OUT
The mission is to move towards a more harmonious fashion production system between the economy and the environment. Collaborating with globally certified and recognised companies who use the finest regenerated and recycled materials to assist each collection coming to life. Carolyn Ferreira has strong partnerships with trusted high quality mills and manufacturers with products that are backed by globally recognised certifications and standards.
OUR MAKING PROCESS
LIMITED RUN / MADE TO ORDER
Our process is based on the slow fashion philosophy. When considering sustainable and quality focused production, we made the conscious decision to offer limited run, made to order knitwear to ensure minimal environmental impact and waste.
Made to order means that we place orders from our manufacturing facility once we have received an order. Once your specialty garment has arrived in our hands it will be carefully packaged and shipped to you.
ALL GOOD THINGS COME IN TIME
Our commitment is to keep you well informed of the status of your order for the duration of production.
