Wustler® is an exclusive lifestyle brand which started out with sustainability in mind, which will always be an integral part of our brand. Although our commitment to sustainability is a constant effort and learning curve, we believe that we at Wustler® do our best to contribute to sustainability through different ways. As an independent brand and business, it is our duty & promise to stay honest, and to constantly improve on different aspects of our brand within our means.
These are some examples of how Wustler® is contributing to sustainability:
We take pride in strictly not adding any synthetics such as polyester or nylon to our Signature Silky Rayon & Viscose Fabric Blend, which is made of regenerated cellulose made from wood pulp. We do want to acknowledge that every fibre & fabric has their pros & cons in terms of sustainability, but we ensure to do our part towards our commitment by always deciding on the best & most suitable fabric option among all the choices we managed to source for - besides searching for more environmentally-friendly fabrics.
For every exclusive collection, we focus on creating only classic, trend-defying and versatile designs that are meant to transcend seasons, to encourage consumers to shift from temporary trends to enduring timeless pieces. We also produce our pieces in limited quantities to avoid overproduction, and we strictly work with ethical manufacturers who practise ethical production and provide fair working conditions. We too ensure our manufacturer strictly uses non-toxic and environmentally friendly fabric dyes, certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®.
On top of these, we are a business member of ‘1% for the Planet’ and dedicate at least 1% of our total sales to our nonprofit organisation partners such as Women's Earth Alliance (WEA) annually, you can read more about this below.
While we are not perfect, we are constantly learning, improving and exploring new ideas to drive responsible change through our brand. We are happy to share our efforts thus far and are excited for where our commitment to sustainability will take us. If you have any ideas as to how we can improve, we’d love to hear from you.

"When Women Thrive, The Earth Thrives."
Women's Earth Alliance (WEA) equips women with the skills and tools they need to protect our Earth and strengthen communities from the inside out and has trained over 5,000 women leaders. They, in turn, have reached 6 million people. In some of the most environmentally threatened regions, WEA leaders are closing dirty energy plants and forwarding clean energy projects, advocating for water, land, and air protection policies, preserving indigenous seeds and cultures, launching regenerative agriculture projects that sustain our communities, drawing down carbon through forest and coral reef conservation, and removing toxins from our environment and our bodies.
