In 2008 over a period of time of 9 months, all production process within ROSSI Ltd and their CO2 emissions were analysed. Various changes in the order process, in the production and especially in the transport and travel arrangements showed a reduction of over 28%. We keep working on it and are constantly improving our ecological behaviour on all fronts in order to reduce our CO2 emissions and use as little energy as possible. 

Recycling

Since almost 10 years do we trade-in used ROSSIS bags. We utilize the parts that can be reused again. These are being cleaned, renewed and put back into circulation. Moreover we offer 10% discount for a new regular product (valid startig 31. August 2016). The re-usable parts live on in out Recycling line (SWISSMADE). 

Production Location

Our vegan leather products are being produced in a small factory in sunny Portugal. We know all their employees for soon 20 years. The recycling line is being produced in Switzerland in a restoration facility. Rossi Ltd works exclusively with certified companies. 

Repair Service

ROSSI Ltd offers his clients a life long repair service. We repair bags and purses in our studio and therefore extend the life span of the products. For production flaws we offer a 3-year warranty.

PET-Recycling

PET is produced from fossil oil and is mostly used as packaging material for food and drinks. Today, used PET bottles are in large part recycled. They are cleaned, shredded, and then processed to yarn and finally to the desired fabric for the hand bag. Since 2009 ROSSIS uses recycled PET-fabric for the bag- and lining fabric of his Collection.
