MADE IN NORTH AMERICA
All BIKO jewelry is designed by Founder & Designer Corrine Anestopoulos and ethically handcrafted in small batches by local artisans & family-run small businesses. Our manufacturing takes place in our home city of Toronto, although a few of our chains are made in the USA.
MATERIALS & WASTE
40% of all BIKO jewelry is made of recycled metals & components. Since our inception in 2005, we've saved hundreds of thousands of components from ending up in the landfill. All new metals used are conflict-free. We are diligent about not overproducing our collections, and melt down & repurpose all metals that are in abundance during the production process.
At BIKO we believe in designing and handcrafting purposeful, intentional heirloom-quality jewelry that can be worn and loved for a lifetime. That's why we stand by every product. We are committed to extending the life of our products and offer complimentary repairs, polishing and replating services on your BIKO piece, should the need arise.
Each BIKO piece comes with it's own branded BIKO pouch. Made with repurposing in mind, this pouch not only keeps your jewels safely stored - it serves as a polishing cloth as well as a travel pouch to keep your pieces in mint condition, wherever your journey may take you.
Our shipping packaging is plastic-free, recyclable and reusable. To be mindful of not over-packaging our goods, we only offer branded BIKO boxes upon request.
We ship local orders with bicycle courier when possible.
We aim to create consciously, produce ethically and practice responsible processes. Sourcing and producing as close to home as possible, being committed to the longevity of our products and taking a conscious materials & packaging approach is just the beginning. BIKO is committed to minimizing and improving our environmental impact and carbon footprint. We’re not perfect but we are continuously evaluating our practices and working towards being better.
BIKO believes in supporting the most vulnerable in our communities. Through ongoing fundraising initiatives, we proudly raise funds to support organizations such as Climate Action Network, Second Harvest, Sistering, Black Lives Matter, Black Health Alliance, and the Marsha P. Johnson Institute. Since 2018, we have partnered yearly with Rethink Breast Cancer to design limited edition Rose Gold jewelry collections with 20% of sales donated to Rethink, striving to benefit the lives of women living with breast cancer.
