Sustainability

We aim to provide an experience you can feel good about, by crafting all product by hand from scratch and using recyclable shipping bags. Printers use sublimation inks that are 100% biodegradable, water-based, contain no animal by-products, and are vegan-friendly. Misprinted items and returns are repurposed, recycled, or donated – nothing goes in the landfill.

Supporting displaced women

Displaced Women Initiative was started with the goal of helping displaced Syrian women and connects them to Swedish and international markets through their exquisite handcrafted items.

Hoodie Lab supports this initiative by providing the right resources and tools to help women artisans who have fled the war and are facing challenges such as a lack of adequate humanitarian aid, high daily expenses, and harsh living conditions.

Despite being forced to leave their possessions behind, they brought with them the knowledge of traditional skill sets passed down from their mothers and grandmothers, such as embroidery, crocheting, and knitting. These women can generate an income to sustain themselves and their children thanks to their tenacity, resourcefulness, and innovation.

By empowering women, this initiative helps promoting gender equality, preventing child labour and marriage, nurturing psychological well-being, combating social isolation, and contributing to a more inclusive global economy.

Carbon Neutrality

We are committed to reduce the company’s carbon footprint and combat climate change wherever possible. To continuously improve the company’s sustainability programs, we have partnered with UPS to offer Carbon Neutral Shipping, offsetting the carbon emissions from shipping Hoodie Lab products.

Artist Empowerment

Everything in the Hoodie Lab marketplace is created by a global community of independent artists. We welcome creators of all kinds – from casual doodlers to professionals – to upload their work for customers to appreciate, and every purchase puts money in an artist’s pocket. Take part in something good.
