      Other Questions

      Yes, all orders sent from Velvety HQ come in biodegradable packages, mainly made from corn starch and cassava roots. It breaks down within 90 days in a compostable environment. We also use recycled plastic for wrapping fragile products. A few of our products will be sent to you directly from our suppliers, if you have any issues with packaging they have used please let us know so we may bring it up with them.
      We reject most brands we research in the search for actual ethical fashion. Some companies may have a vegan product that is made of a material that is bad for the environment, or they cannot prove that they do not use sweat shop labour or they simply cost too much, we believe ethical fashion should be available to everyone. There are some countries that have very high levels of corruption that make it impossible to verify what occurs in the supply chain. It takes us a long time and a lot of questions to the right people to find brands that we can trust to be ethical guilt free purchases for our customers, you can rest assured we have taken the hard work out of ethical shopping.
