How It´s Made
Supporting traditional skills
Both in her own production process and in her small German subcontractors process, the traditional craftsmanship of working with precious metals are used.
By buying a IDAMARI product, you support this slow and close process, where old knowledge is kept alive, and where your product has been touched by hands all the way from raw material to finished product.
Supporting local industry
Ida’s raw material is bought from a German refinery. She use a small family factory in Germany for the guilding process. The chains are bought from a German company who do their production in the country.
Excellent working conditions
All products are handmade in the designers studio in Berlin by Ida herself. An intern is present 3 hours, once a week. Ida is carefully making sure that they both use required and adequate protection equipment like goggles and cloves, and that all use of chemicals is done in a ventilated room, in a proper and secure way, with the right protections and right storing of products. She follows MSDS sheet advice for handling, storing and disposing of chemicals. Ida also makes sure there is proper lighting and that the workbench is built with ergonomics in mind.
In regards to all of IDAMARis small German subcontracors, they are all guaranteed to have good working condition, adequate pay, no forced labour or child labour, and to follow German law when it comes to sick leave, maternity leave etc.
Low Carbon Footprint
All raw material, processing and production is short travelled, as IDAMARI works with a local silver refinery, suppliers and manufacturing companies in Germany. Whenever possible the tools purchased are produced in Switzerland, France and Germany, and in as close proximity to the production as possible.
Eco Gold – Recycled silver
The local refineries in Germany use 100% recycled eco silver whenever possible, and all scap from production is carefully collected for re-use. The company is the first in Europe to deliver conflict free gold. In her own production Ida also makes sure to take care of all scraps for reuse, taking every little piece back to the refinery for remelting.
Reducing Waste – Made To Order
All of Ida’s products are normally Made To Order, but this spring Ida will not be offering MTO. This still does not change the fact that everything we do have in store, is still handmade in Ida’s studio in Berlin.
