Since the beginning one of Nootka's main company values has been to work with recycled materials. All our silver is therefore 100% recycled 925 sterling silver.
Since mining new silver causes a lot of damage on the environment, our first step was to only use silver that has been recycled. This silver can come from pre-owned jewelry or from our own old collections that we decide to melt down and reshape into new designs. Our vision is to create our own Nootka lifecycle and to take an even bigger resonsibility towards a more sustainable jewelry industry.
We are proud to say that our goldsmiths have more than 40 years of experience. Creating jewelry by hand is a true craftsmanship and artwork. Every piece is unique in some way, something that we strongly value at Nootka.
MADE IN STOCKHOLM
Our third part of our promise was to make sure that production took place locally. We now design and craft all our jewelry in our foundry in Stockholm.
This has been very important for us since the beginning. Having the production locally enables us to continuously ensure good working conditions and a close dialogue with our goldsmiths.
EXCLUSIVE JEWELRY CARE SERVICE BY OUR GOLDSMITHS
Our lastest service is Nootka Care. We want our products to be worn year after year and we want to cherish the long time usage of jewelry, for a more responsible future. Therefore we launched Nootka Care - a way for our customers to send in their Nootka jewelry for gold plating or repolishing of silver by our goldsmiths, at cost price.
Our vision is that you as a customer will feel confident the entire way when purchasing something from Nootka, and that we can work together for a more sustainable jewelry industry.
