ORGANIC COTTON

____________________________

Organic cotton remains at the centre of our AW19 collection. From the moment the cotton is planted we can trace it through the production process. All our cotton is GOTS certified, telling us where it was grown and knitted, and ensuring that no pesticides, chemicals or GMO seeds are used in the production. Crops are rotated to maintain a healthy soil and reduce water consumption.

WOOL

____________________________

 

We take wool sourcing very seriously and only use wool from the EU where there are very strict laws on farming. All our wool is harvested according to non-mulesing practices in line with animal rights recommendations. We visit our factories regularly, sometimes unannounced, and where possible we have moved to recycled yarns in an effort to re-use rather than produce more.

End Of Roll

END OF ROLL

____________________________

 

All factories contain huge amounts of unused fabric rolls which are left around in warehouses. These fabrics are often produced using environmentally damaging methods, but then the product is wasted. Where possible we use these fabrics in an effort to reduce the waste material going to landfill. We believe using 'end of rolls' is just as important as using organic and sustainable fabrics. This also results in a more unique garment as 'end of roll' styles are typically very limited in number.

 

 

ETHICAL PRODUCTION

____________________________

 

We only work with factories in the EU which pay fair wages and provide good working conditions for their staff. We visit regularly and speak to them daily.

We pay fair prices for our products based on the average salaries in the country and the quality of the manufacturing, and we give large lead times for production to ensure the factory workers can manager our orders within their working day and do not need to work longer hours.

We strongly believe that the mission to become a more sustainable business is an ongoing one. For SS20 we are working to bring our customers full traceability of every product, from the farm where the raw materials are grown, to the factory that cut and stitched the garment.
