In the beginning, there was
Sincethen, we have had a very clear vision of what kind of brand Woobs is and what kind of vibes the products want to evoke. One of the most important things is that the product is of high quality, ecological and fashionable. The basic idea has been that the products are simple in design, but contain interesting details that add extra spice to the products.
Sunglasses and eyeglasses
Our sunglasses are manufactured in Wenzhou, China. Lenses for sunglasses arrive from Italy, Germany and China, depending on the lenses. All lenses with strengths are honed at the Turku Lens Workshop. Since the lenses of eyeglasses and strong sunglasses are sanded in Turku, and more than 50% of the value of the product is created in Finland, these glasses of ours would also receive the Key Flag symbol. However, for the sake of transparency, we have decided not to use the Key Flag symbol for our glasses, as the frames are not manufactured in Finland. Our partner has SCS global Responsible Wood certificate and FSC 100% certificate. The certificates guarantee that our sunglasses only use wood from a forest that is managed with nature, the environment, workers and indigenous peoples in mind.
We want to pay attention to responsibility throughout the product's life cycle, i.e. also to parts other than manufacturing.
We encourage the repair of a broken product, which increases its service life. Woobs has a repair service and we are more than happy to repair our products to increase their age!
Inventory management: we do not order our products in large quantities at once, but according to demand, which means that waste is the minimum. We place pre-orders for products so that the number of products ordered meets the demand. We minimize the amount of plastic in our products. Our packaging is made of recycled materials, easy to recycle and as small as possible so that material is not wasted.
