About Studio Feder

Sascha Feder is the mastermind behind the Danish design company, Studio Feder. With more than 18 years of experience in the field of fashion design, interior design, and children’s wear, her solid know-how of sustainable fabrication and conscious production informs and inspires many of her decisions today.

 

Studio Feder stands for Scandinavian simplicity wrapped in certified sustainable materials. On a journey towards creating functional and aesthetically pleasing designs for the home, their interior design philosophy follows a conscious approach. Wishing to get away from the ‘buy and throw away’ mentality, Studio Feder aims to influence its customers to purchase long-lasting, timeless products of excellent quality that can be passed on for generations to come.

 

Their conscious living collection features an array of sophisticated sustainable textiles made from premium quality fabrics in simple Nordic designs, and predominantly stonewashed, muted colours. Caring deeply about the environment and social responsibility, Studio Feder offers a range of organic and eco-friendly designs in recycled and biodegradable materials. Their collection includes OCS and GOTS-certified organic bedding, children’s essentials, nightwear, and selected home accessories.

Brand Ethos

Studio Feder creates with great care for both people and the environment as a way to contribute to sustainable and timeless design. Their products are made of organic materials durable enough to be inherited from generation to generation. Highly aware that a mix of sustainable and non-sustainable products reflects the shopping habits of today, the brand advises people to choose something in their lives to be sustainable about and progress from there. Studio Feder encourages us all to consciously choose products that are environmentally friendly as a collective bolster towards a greener world.

Brand sustainability

Studio Feder focuses highly on sustainability and especially on sustainable fabrication and production. The most important aspect of their business is undoubtedly their product and making sure they do as little damage to the environment as possible is paramount to their development.

 

Certified Materials

A wide range of their products are either certified with sustainable certifications or made more sustainably. A plethora of their products boasts the GOTS certification, the world’s leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. GOTS includes regulations for both organic production and social responsibility, showing that Studio Feder takes responsibility for the environment and the people making their products. The GOTS certification provides a credible assurance to the end consumer, guaranteeing the status of their textiles – from harvesting the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing, all the way to packaging, labelling, and distribution of textiles – is made with at least 70% certified organic natural fibres.

 

Their selection of textile products made from a cotton and linen mix, where the cotton fibre percentage is less than 70% is thereby OCS certified. Their production takes place in the same facilities as the GOTS certified products and the social responsibility criteria are virtually the same. Other product certifications Studio Feder obtained include OEKO-TEX certified cotton for their quilts and bedspreads, and OEKO-TEX certified feather filling for all their pillows. Studio Feder also uses recycled polyester for their toiletry bags, believing it’s equally as important to reuse and reduce the amount of textile waste already existent in the world.

 

Natural Materials

A natural material they often use apart from organic cotton is linen. Flax, the plant from which linen is made, is extremely versatile. Every part of the plant is used when producing linen, leaving nothing to waste. Flax is resilient and can even grow in poor soil using far less water in its consumption than cotton. Considered by many to be a luxury fabric due to its laborious yarn production and manual processing, linen is also one of the most biodegradable fabrics in fashion history. When untreated (not dyed), it is fully biodegradable.

 

Sustainable Packaging

The Studio Feder packaging is made of paper that is either FSC certified or entirely recycled in local Danish factories. FSC is a certification that guarantees the practice of sustainable forestry, setting standards for forest products like paper and wood that have been sourced in an environmentally friendly, socially responsible, and economically viable manner. On the other hand, recycling is equally as important for them to implement whenever possible, as it can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials. This thereby reduces energy usage, air pollution and water pollution.

 

Studio Feder also tries to reuse the boxes they ship their parcels in as many times as possible. The paper packaging tape they use is made of a sustainable, chlorine-free raw material. This way, the tape can be disposed of in an eco-friendly way by using heat treatment. Their gift-wrapping paper is made of recycled paper and their ‘Thank You’ card is made of FSC certified paper. Furthermore, Studio Feder packs all their GOTS certified products in biodegradable polybags, which you can then reuse for toys, fruits or any other kind of storage.

The Comarché Notes

Studio Feder is the perfect starting-point if you want to be more conscious in your choices and take a step in the right direction. With Studio Feder, you know that you are buying affordable luxury that is produced with social responsibility and with consideration for the environment. We love how transparent they are about which goods are made with recycled, natural, or organic materials, as well as all the other efforts towards a more sustainable, balanced operation.

Sustainable highlights on brand level

  • This indicates that the brand has actively sought out Fair Working Conditions for the producers of its product(s).

Product Lifecycle

Design

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.

        Production

        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
