Our collections are the heart of Rich & Royal. Every single product is designed and produced with a high demand on quality, design and sustainability. Special attention is paid to the conscious selection of materials.
For us, aesthetics and ethics go hand in hand.
One of the most important steps on the way to more sustainability is the careful use of our planet's resources. For us, this means a conscious and diverse selection of materials and the continuous search for innovations and alternatives.
By joining the "Fur Free Retailer Program"
we seal our attitude to the protection of animals and only use high-quality artificial fur instead of fur.
Because sustainability starts with awareness:

Less is more: Growing our organic cotton uses 62% less energy and up to 91% less water than usual - and 0% toxic chemicals. The cotton is grown under ethical conditions, using only natural fertilizers.
If you choose a piece made from organic cotton, you are choosing to treat nature with respect and fair working conditions on the cotton plantations.
RDS-CERTIFIED DOWN AND FEATHERS
For the protection of animals: The feathers and down that we use for our products come from animals that have been raised ethically. The globally valid "Responsible Down Standard" for down attaches particular importance to animal welfare.
When you choose an item with RDS, you choose an ethical and humane husbandry of geese and ducks. By the way: In addition to RDS, we are increasingly using recycled, sustainable down imitations.
FSC CERTIFIED VISCOSE
Garments made from FSC-certified viscose were once a tree - really! He grew up in a sustainably managed forest, free from genetically modified plants.
When you choose these garments, you choose to protect biodiversity in forests and the natural habitat of thousands of plants and animals.
LENZING™ | ECOVERO™
Kindly please: Garments made from Lenzing™ Ecovero™ are nature's best friend because they contain the most environmentally friendly viscose there is: the fibers are made from sustainable wood and pulp and come from certified sources. The production uses 50% less emissions and water than a conventional viscose fiber.
When you choose these garments, you choose less environmental impact and sustainable production.
Loved before: These pieces were once different and have been reinvented by us. Recycling wool, cotton, polyester and nylon fibers and giving them a new life is more sustainable than producing new textiles.
When you choose products made from recycled materials, you avoid the use of chemicals and energy that would be required to produce new fibers.
Timeless, sustainable, fair: Our popular basics have been sustainable since July 2021 - from the first to the last step. This means that we use certified organic cotton, environmentally friendly viscose and high-quality denim twill from the traditional Candiani weaver for our wide range of T-shirts, sweaters, blazers, trousers and jeans. Organic cotton was grown using 62% less energy and up to 91% less water than usual - and 0% toxic chemicals.
For us, sustainability also means a fair
Guarantee production and reduce our ecological footprint. The Rich & Royal Basics are manufactured in Europe by our long-standing partner companies in Portugal and Greece. We share the same conviction with them: to develop products with the highest quality standards and to assume social and ecological responsibility.
We also love our planet. Out of appreciation for the resources and the origin of our products, we would therefore never dispose of unsold items. That has always been the case and will always remain so.
What happens to unsold goods? You get another chance during the seasonal sales and in our five outlet locations in Germany. We also donate products to regional institutions, such as the women's shelters in Heilbronn or the free Christian community in Bietigheim-Bissingen, which supports needy families in developing and emerging countries.
