ETHICAL AND SUSTAINBLE FASHION

WE BELIEVE IN THE RIGHT MEASURE, FOR YOU AND FOR THE PLANET

L’intimo è la prima cosa che mettiamo la mattina e l’ultima che togliamo prima di andare a dormire. In mezzo, c’è la nostra giornata. Le nostre ambizioni, le nostre sfide, i nostri obiettivi. Abbiamo voluto creare un marchio di lingerie che, con la sua vestibilità perfetta, riuscisse ad avere un impatto reale sulle nostre vite. Un intimo su misura, personalizzabile e sostenibile, perché la gioia di, finalmente, indossare un reggiseno che ci fa sentire bene davvero possa accompagnarci in ogni cosa che facciamo.

Chitè aims to be an impactful company with a lighter impact on our planet and a much stronger impact on people's lives. We never stopped at words: since our foundation in 2018 we have been a Benefit Company and, in 2022, we obtained the coveted B Corp certification.

This is how we work

Our goals can only be achieved through a concrete and constant commitment to sustainability in every aspect, from the environmental to the human one, and an ethical and sustainable approach in all steps of production, communication and company management. 
SUPPORT FOR CRAFTS
We believe in responsible production through slow couture, completely detaching us from the dynamics of fast fashion.
TRANSPARENCY
From day one we are committed to being transparent guaranteeing our customers the right to know faces and names of our supply chain.
ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
We have developed a close collaboration with certified italian suppliers. Continuously researching innovative and low-impact raw materials environmental, recycled and recyclable.
CERTIFIED FABRICS
Our lingerie comes exclusively from OEKO-TEX® certified fabrics with low environmental impact and high requirements human-ecological. This certification is a control system and independent and uniform certification at an international level.

Responsible production

We distance ourselves from fast fashion: ours are products made to last, because we believe in a world of less consumption and more quality. Our collections are made according to the principles of slow couture, and the extended times of craftsmanship and sustainable production are, for Chitè, an added value. For this, we only collaborate with ateliers that embrace these principles together with us.

Short supply chain

We want our supply chain to be 100% Italian, from the yarn to the finished product. For this, we only source from local companies whose work we can know and verify that they have values rooted in quality, respect for the environment, safety and health of people. One of our main collaborations is the one with Boselli. It is from this fourth generation Italian company, founded in 1898, that the satin used for Chitè lingerie comes.

Low environmental impact

We want the value of our creations to be perceptible in all senses, for the wearer and for the planet. This is why we take care to select only the highest quality fabrics with Oeko-Tex certification and faithful to human-ecological requirements: they are products with a low environmental impact and respect the skin of those who wear them.

Human sustainability: respect and support for artisans
There can be no true sustainability if there is not also the human one. For this, we support small Italian artisans by collaborating with independent ateliers in the heart of the Langhe, in Piedmont, ensuring that the work is done in full protection of their human and labor rights.

Our commitment is certified

Chitè is on a mission to give everywoman the pleasure of a product born guilt-free on their skin. Our products have a lighter impact on our planet and a much stronger impact on the lives of all the artisans behind our supply chain. In 2022 we achieved the B Corp certification with a score of 83.3 and we released our first sustainability agenda with yearly goals. But we are not stopping there. Changing the fashion industry is a tough challenge but we want to play our role in it.

Our commitment since 2018

Our goals can only be achieved through a concrete and constant commitment to sustainability in every aspect, from the environmental to the human one, and an ethical and sustainable approach in all steps of production, communication and company management. 
RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION
We have developed a responsible production system that reduces waste and environmental impact.
PLASTIC FREE PACKAGING
We have chosen plastic-free packaging with recycled and recyclable paper. We will continue to minimize paper consumption.
100% ORGANIC COTTON 
We have created a collection in 100% organic cotton from the Italian company Eusebio, which operates in partnership with African cooperatives in Ivory Coast in order to improve local crops through funding, resources production and Italian know-how.
RECYCLED POLYESTER
Most of our designs are created in 100% Italian recycled polyester satin supplied by the Italian company Boselli. In this way we are able to keep the production chain entirely Italian with a vegan and sustainable yarn.
