Wool

The Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) aims to improve the welfare of sheep and the land on which they graze. RWS farmers and ranchers must comply with social, land management and animal welfare requirements.

It provides the industry with a tool to recognise best farming practices, that wool comes from farms that take a progressive approach to land management and respect animal welfare. Ensuring responsible wool from sheep to shop.

Protecting animal welfare, preserving the health of the land and protecting social welfare are the requirements for our wool.

Viscose

Derived from certified renewable wood sources through a responsible production process by meeting high environmental standards, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibres fit into a sustainable lifestyle, contributing to a cleaner environment.

Wood:the natural and renewable raw material, wood and pulp, comes from certified and controlled sources derived from sustainably managed forests.

Water: up to 50% less impact on water. In addition to maintaining a highly efficient usage rate, the water used is cleaned before being returned to nature.

Air: up to 50% less CO2 emissions into the air, helping to combat climate change.

Thanks to these eco-responsible production practices, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ has a much lower environmental impact than generic viscose, leaving the air and water cleaner. LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibres are certified with the EU Ecolabel.

For every tree felled, tree planted.

Polyamide

Our knitted garments are knitted with 100% recycled polyamide yarn, which comes from both garment recycling and post-consumer plastic.

What is Post Consumer Plastic?

Post-consumer plastic is all the plastic that is discarded today, both the plastic that is removed by cleaning the seas and forests, as well as the plastic that we recycle in the yellow bin. This plastic is used to create recycled polyamide yarns for weaving.

The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) sets the criteria for third party certification of recycled materials and chain of custody. The GRS includes a higher minimum recycled content percentage (50 %) and additional social and environmental requirements related to processing and chemical use.

Cotton

The cotton we use in our knitwear comes from organic materials. Organic cotton comes from organic farming and is certified as such.

Organic cotton has not used pesticides, insecticides or any other toxic substances to grow. Consequently, it has not undergone any process of genetic alteration. In its cultivation, natural fertilizers are used, and the necessary cycles are respected to avoid the depletion of the soil's nutrients, and without using genetically modified seeds. It is therefore ecological, natural and sustainable. It is a light and breathable natural fibre.

Sustainable fashion, ethical clothing, and fair production have many meanings. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) has a clearly defined set of criteria and is transparent.

GOTS is the world's leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.

Labels

Our knitwear labels are made from recycled polyester from plastic bottles or leftover looms.

To recycle the garments it is necessary to separate these two labels from the garment (not in the case of polyester or polyamide garments), as they are made of a different material. They can be disposed of as plastic in the yellow bin.

Trimmings

The trimmings we use for our knitwear are made of polyester and/or polyamide so that they can be recycled and do not become waste.

In order to recycle the garments it is necessary to separate these trimmings from the garment (not in the case of polyester or polyamide garments), as they are made of a different material. They can be disposed of as plastic in the yellow bin.

 

Rubbers

The rubber we use for our knitwear is made from 91% recycled polyester and 9% elastane. It is a deadstock material, therefore it contributes to the reuse of materials that are not in use.

To recycle the garments it is necessary to separate this rubber from the garment (not in the case of polyester or polyamide garments), as they are made of a different material. It can be disposed of as plastic in the yellow bin.
