SEP ARTISTS ARE AT THE HEART OF WHAT WE DO
SEP artists are unique: Our skilled craftswomen are uniquely talented. Their skills are respected and appreciated by the world’s sophisticated consumer.
SEP artisans are the core of the SEP model: We work to ensure that the SEP artists are proud to be part of the SEP community. They are respected as individuals and each of them can express their personality in the creative process. Children are not involved in the production.
SO MORE PEOPLE BENEFIT
SEP artisans benefit: SEP producers earn above-market rates. The best producers earn performance-related bonuses at the end of the year. We take pride in ensuring that they benefit from the work both emotionally and financially. To ensure the bonuses are funded, we must make a profit.
Rigorous attention to detail: we aim for a superior level of quality and efficiency at all times, deadlines are respected and waste avoided.
SEP CULTURAL AWARENESS MAKES US UNIQUE
Respect for traditions and cultures: SEP is cross-culturally aware. The founder and most of the management team and consultants are Italian; the producers are refugees in the Middle East.
We all love elegant design: No matter our location or circumstance we all love beauty.
SO THE PLANET DOESN'T PAY THE PRICE
All of our embroidery is undertaken by hand. Even assembling is mostly hand-made, using minimal machinery.
We promote recycling and respect for the environment in the workplace.
We ask our fabrics suppliers to avoid use chemical coloring and we are always on the lookout for new fabrics based on recycled materials.
