Evolution aims to be a responsible creator and producer of products. See our contribution to the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals 
Raw Material:
We are currently sourcing 60% of our raw materials locally, the bulk of our linens are woven in South Africa. Our aim is to increase this percentage with the development of more base cloths locally. Supporting one of our few remaining mills.
Design:
We work with various archives in South Africa to obtain visual references of historic artworks, processes and historic  techniques to create a visual representation of our countries creative history.We contribute financially to the sources of our visuals
Printed items: 
The visuals obtained from our sources are adapted at our head office in JHB, we then send these visuals to our printers in CPT who use a non-toxic pigment printing process with minimal impact on the environment.
The printed fabrics for our bulk orders are then sent to a Cape Town based cut make and trim factory who makes the fabric up into cushions. For smaller orders we utilise a seamstress based in Johannesburg.
 
Embroidered cushions:
In creating our assortments, we identify visuals that can work well in embroidery designs. These items are sent to our embroidery factory in Cape Town who digitises the design, samples are made and colourations finalised. To reduce the impact of excess transport the items are completed in Cape Town before being shipped to Johannesburg where each item is dyed by hand by our meticulous dye master Mike.
 
All products are quality controlled at our head office in JHB by Liezl and Seeng who completes any final touches and hand stitching. 
Evolution further collaborates with different manufacturers and designers to create custom assortments.
Our aim is to support the South African manufacturing industry in creating unique South African products
