Treating the earth well is also only our responsibility.

Treating the earth well is also our responsibility. Like us, the next generation must be able to enjoy all the beauty our planet has to offer. Sustainability is therefore close to our heart. Indeed, it is in our DNA. Within our capabilities, we contribute as much as possible to a liveable world. Working sustainably is our starting point; even a precondition.

We have found that if you show yourself how important you think this is, you thereby also inspire your suppliers and buyers. Together we go green!

All sustainable fabrics can be recognised in the shop by the green hook.

  • 58% of our sales already consist of fabrics with a green hook!
  • We currently have 822 fabrics in the collection with a green hook.
  • We have registered our green hook with the International Trademark Office.

Our responsibility for the effects of our business activities on People, Planet and Profit.

  • At A House of Happiness, it's all about people, treating everyone with respect. Focusing on engaged employees, sustainable employability, job satisfaction and development, we encourage each other to get the best out of ourselves and transfer our knowledge. We work together with regional MBO and HBO courses to create an internal 'living Lab'.
  • We actively contribute to social causes, there is room for diversity and inclusiveness, as well as donations, sponsorships and volunteering. Our internal social enterprise; the L.A.P. atelier, which employs women in need of support, is an example of this.

  • We inform our customers and suppliers how we do business in a socially responsible way and what sustainability choices we make. These include recycled raw materials, fairly grown cotton  (BCI) and environmentally friendly dyes.
  • We also provide more than 50% of our own energy, through solar panels on the roof and save more than 80% water in our textile printing plant. We reduce CO2 emissions in transport and in our sustainable packaging. We control waste streams by reducing and reusing residual materials. We recycle and upcycle our textile waste material.
  • We make transparent agreements with all parties involved about the quality of our products and services and their monitoring. We guarantee the longevity of our 'green' curtains!

  • We continuously work on making our products and services more sustainable. We believe that innovation enhances our right to exist as a company. We recognise that only as a financially sound company can we make our contribution to social and environmental issues. It is our aim as a company to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible.


Global Recycle Standard
For recycled material, we choose Global Recycle Standard (GRS) because it is one of the most well-known and high international standards and a strong emerging textile label. GRS is not only about the recycled content but also looks at the ecological, social and chemical situations from environmental requirements. GRS concerns the entire supply chain.


Oeko-Tex Standard®100 is a testing and certification system for textiles. The standard focuses on limiting the use of harmful substances in relation to end-user health. A large proportion of our manufacturers and suppliers are OEKO-TEX®100 certified.

It is our aim to continuously expand the proportion of certified curtain fabrics.

Sustainable from factory to consumer

There are many different elements that go into making sustainable products. First, of course, are the fabrics for our curtains. Among other things, these are produced from recycled raw materials. A special, environmentally-friendly way of printing saves up to 1,000 litres of water per 50 metres of fabric. Also, no agents containing harmful substances are used during the dyeing of the fabrics. Our cotton curtains are produced from consciously grown cotton with the BCI quality mark.

Besides sustainable production, sustainable waste disposal is also important. Our goal is to recycle at least 90% of our waste by 2025. A first step towards recycling waste is the Waste Sorting Programme. This involves sorting waste directly so that it can be more easily recycled.

L.A.P. Atelier is an initiative of A House of Happiness and Fier. It employs women who could use a helping hand. The high-quality leftover fabrics from A House of Happiness are reused by L.A.P. and transformed into handmade, sustainable products. A House of Happiness offers L.A.P. a pleasant and safe workplace where they can make use of all facilities.
