Even the hardware used for Harlen’s Modern Careerpieces is sourced respnsibly. Its zips are exclusively from Raccagni, an Italian company that uses advanced technology to ensure sustainable manufacturing. Harlen uses only microsuedes created by Alcantara for its linings, a supplier that weaves CSR into its brand and represent the utmost excellence in Italian craftsmanship.
All of Harlen’s packaging contain recyclable parts, sourced from FSC or Sustainable Forest Initiative-certified suppliers.
Harlen is deeply invested in moving opportunity forward at the community level, too. Honouring the inimitable skills of master Italian artisans, Harlen ensures that their rich history is preserved and passed down to the next generation. Harlen also contributes to Room to Read, the leading non-profit for literacy and girls’ education. When you own a Modern Careerpiece, Harlen supports a year of education and empowerment for a girl in Room to Read’s Girls’ Education Program, which includes the tools girls need to succeed: tuition and fees, mentoring and life-skills education, books and uniforms, and other materials, like a bike, if she needs one to get to school. The brand is also actively pursuing initiatives to support gender equality in the workplace and the advancement of women in the arts.
