...AND THE FUTURE
I. Labiehecha will be or won't be
Since the first moment when we started this project, we’ve worked so hard to show that there is a different way to make things and, even if it's hard to keep it on time, our values are (and will be) above anything else.
Because the principles of the brand and the project are not for sale. Because Labienhecha will be or won’t be at all. And we'll always fight for it.
WE DON'T MAKE PERFEC THINGS, WE JUST MAKE WELL-MADE THINGS
Behind Labienhecha you'll find a team of women making (well-made) things in a small workshop in Málaga and working around three main principles: making a quality, local and ecological product; raising awareness about sustainability and, on the other hand, empowering the women role in entrepreneurship and in life, in general terms.
OUR MANTRA: THERE'S NO SUSTAINABILITY WITHOUT TRANSPARENCY
Honesty and transparency will remain our symbol. Because we can’t understand our acts if they’re not honest with ourselves and with you. And we’ll always be extremely transparent because we believe in the power of showing the worst and the best part of truth. This is Labienhecha in its pure state. Because our essence has always been there. And it'll always be.
II. We're local
We are and we will be. We want to keep creating local employment and activate more decent jobs in this project. And we say DECENT because we can be really proud of the fact that, at Labienhecha, the team enjoys such conditions that we wish we could find in all the world's workshops.
This has always been like that: support to the local economy and employment is one of our priorities. And we’ll keep betting on rescuing craftwork and giving it continuity to keep it alive, working with traditional and handmade techniques that help us to make every product special and unique.
DESIGN - At Labienhecha we take charge of everything. And we really mean EVERYTHING. From the idea to the design and from the design to the bag manufacture.
MANUFACTURE - Everything we make at Labienhecha is born in our own workshop in Málaga, from where we work hard to keep tradition alive.
SALES & MARKETING - When we say that we make everything, we really mean everything. Because Labienhecha is a project 100% self-managed by ourselves that, in addition, is overflowing with passion, care and love.
SHIPMENT & CUSTOMER CARE - Every shipment goes right away from our worksop and you'll always (always) find us at the other side by any of our contact ways. We spend a lot of energy in customer service (and it'll be always like that).
III. A sustainable future
We believe that nothing is 100% sustainable, but with little actions and decisions as a brand, we can reduce our negative impact and encourage a culture around sustainability.
We keep in mind all the levels around sustainability (economic, environmental and/or social and labour). That’s why we want to progress in our own R&D, working with other sustainable and certified materials, offering other alternatives, increasing our knowledge, improving our resources to get better results, optimizing our workshop and betting on damaging our planet as little as possible.
A FUTURE MADE IN SPAIN
This is literally sacred. Labienhecha has always produced in its own workshop in Spain and it has to be like that.
We refuse to take our production (even a part of it) to China or Bangladesh or any workshop, even in Spain, that doesn’t share our values when producing or doesn’t respect what it’s unquestionable to us.
This is one of the main pillars of our project and we want to respect it ALWAYS. Whatever it takes.
A CONSCIOUS FUTURE
We like to believe that we can inspire others in the way towards sustainability, creating awareness and changing our way of buying, thinking and living.
We want to keep raising our voice to create consciousness, to help each other about making well-made things (at all stages).
We believe that only our actions prove our words and we want to use our example to show that we can change things. It’s every day in our minds and we can’t conceive it any other way.
IV. A feminist
We need that future to keep moving on our fight to empower women’s role in entrepreneurship and in life, in general terms.
We strongly believe that brands like ours have an essential function in this fight, that projects like ours have to play as a loudspeaker to spread the message and that we should take advantage of every resource to build a new reality in equality together.
V. A future to share with you
Happiness and satisfaction of our customers and community is something that we always have in mind regarding each and every one of our decisions.
We don’t only wish you immediate happiness but we dream of you to be part of our family and so we can share values and principles.
We love our work and our dedication is undoubtable. For us, every day, every project and every situation means a challenge that gives us a huge level of satisfaction once we overcome it.
And we want to always count on you. Because we have no doubt that you are (and you’ll be) the key for that future when we’ll be able to keep sharing learnings and successes.
If you identify with this or if everything you have just read motivates you… Do you want to join us?
THE PROJECT'S ESSENCE
Vision & Mission
Our vision: What do we want?
At Labienhecha we want to grow towards a responsible and sustainable global consumption model. We dream of changing the world and we work hard every day to do it (even a little bit).
Our Mission: How are we going to do it?
We aim to be better every day so we can become an example of Spanish artisanal production, making quality goods with ecological and certified materials as well as using traditional techniques that provide a positive impact in society and in the whole world.
We make our best to be a mentor sustainable brand able to achieve a comercial and social goal at the same time.
We like thinking that we’re able to inspire other brands and people in the way towards sustainability, by creating consciousness and changing the way of buying, thinking and living.
We want to show that companies are the great responsible ones for this change and that they can and must focus their actions on providing a positive impact through their corporate social responsibility.
Our principles & values
Our main principle: Proving with our example that things can be changed. It’s in our minds every day and we could say that it’s our most important aim. But we also have other values that mean a lot to us:
Our customer’s happiness and satisfaction is something we have in mind on each and every one of our decisions, but we don’t only want your immediate happiness but we want you to be part of our values and principles.
HONESTY AND TRANSPARENCY
We can’t imagine our actions if they’re not honest with ourselves, with our customers and with all the parts concerned. We're extremely transparent. We believe in the power of showing the worst and the best part of truth.
DEDICATION AND PASSION
We love our work and our dedication is undoubtable. For us, every day, every project and every situation means a challenge that provides us with a great satisfaction once we get it.
CRAFTWORK AND TRADITION
We insist on rescuing craftwork and give it continuity to keep it alive. Working with traditional and handmade techniques help us to make every product special and unique.
SUSTAINABILITY AND KM 0
We take into account all its perspectives (economical, environmental and/or social and labour). Supporting the local economy and local employment is one of our priorities.
We're stronger together. In our team, we all have the same aim. This helps us to encourage a corporate culture in which we give voice to every member of the team. We would love you to know us better. Discover more about us here :)
SORORITY AND FEMINISM
We fight to empower women's role in entrepreneurship and in life, in general term. We show support among women, specially in sexual discrimination situations and sexist behaviors.
QUALITY AND CUSTOMIZATION
We don't settle for it. We work hard to make well-made things and we feed back into experience and, facing problems, we look for solutions that can turn every product into a experience for you.
LEARNING AND PROGRESS
Labienhecha will get better day by day and we'll keep working hard to change things, a little bit at least. We believe that only our actions prove our words and that brands like ours have to give example.
