Our design house is based in Bali, Indonesia. Located in the midst of a rice field, with nothing but greeneries as far as the eye can see. There is an organic garden where the employees are often indulging in harvest, and an organic pond right on the studio lot, to go fishing on during lunch break. This alone separates us from other companies in the fashion industry, which are normally sitting on busy prime locations in big cities.
We believe that fair and balanced employment relations are important, both for the employees and the company. Hence, our employees are paid above the average local salary to ensure they will take home a living wage, in addition to the provided health insurance and pension.
WE LIKE TO CALL IT‚ DESIGN WITH CONSCIOUSNESS
All of our employees are legal adults and receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a workweek. As a global company, our employees are very diverse, coming from different religious backgrounds. We respect their traditions and holidays, by giving them the necessary time off to celebrate their worship, or religious events and holidays. The establishment and maintenance of harmonious working environment are essential in keeping our high employees' retention rate. The management in our worldwide locations is local; therefore, it is sensitive to the needs of staff.
It is also important to support healthy and happy working environment in order to produce High-Frequency clothing. It is believed that in the creation of something new, the energy of the creator - in this case, our tailors, is mixed into the product. Therefore each Psylo garment, whether yoga clothes or clubbing dress, is blessed before leaving our factory. To cleanse it from any negative energy or vibration, or lower frequency, that might got into it in the process of creation. We craft it with love;
As conscious people striving for a life of awareness, we try to take the utmost care of our environment and all life around us.
Cotton covers 2.5% of the world's cultivated land, yet uses 16% of the world's insecticides, more than any other single major crop. This makes going organic on cotton a dire need. Most of our fabrics are 100% Certified Organic Cotton. Also, being organic means our cotton is not genetically modified
The majority of fabric that we use are natural, with some other synthetic material such as polyester and nylon spandex, which are often combined in certain styles for their strength, elasticity and color stability.
We upcycle our fabrics waste, by using them in our “Pecoa” Style - a patchwork design created from leftover pieces of fabric. The smaller shreds of fabric that cannot be included in our designs are then sent to a local manufacturer that produces household necessities.
Our dyes, although not natural, are water based. They are being passed through filtering systems before going into the sewage system, decreasing the imprint left behind.
Global Organic Textiles Standard
Psylo is working only with Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS) certified fabrics wherever and whenever possible. The GOTS is the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers. This standard defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.

CLOTHES' HANG-TAGS We use recycled paper for the hang-tags, and attach them to the clothing by tying with a hemp string.
INNER PACKAGING We use 100% recyclable wrapping paper for the inner package of your Psylo order.
RETURNS INSTRUCTIONS A recycled paper is enclosed inside the package, explaining how to return the item and how to get in touch.
ENVELOPES We use 100% recyclable sugar cane envelopes for most deliveries. Sugar cane is an eco-friendly alternative to standard polythene mailing bags, and is the greenest solution on the market. It’s a bio-based naturally-grown raw material, with no compromise on strength or quality. The CO2 taken from the atmosphere in the growing process, offsets the carbon dioxide emitted through production and transport.
PACKAGING TAPE We moved from regular tape to acrylic kraft paper, which is a good alternative to gummed paper tape. As this self-adhesive paper tape is 100% recyclable, sticks to all carton surfaces, has high elasticity and very high tear resistance once applied.
WE DO OUR BEST TO MAINTAIN THESE VALUES, AND STRIVE TO BETTER OURSELVES, ONE COLLECTION AT A TIME...
