The production process of our organic clothing

Our organic products are ethically made and most importantly manufactured solely using sustainable energy generated from wind and solar power. The garments are made in manufacturing facilities in India powered by wind turbines, from low impact organic cotton under the Global Organic Textile Standard (G.O.T.S) and certified by the Soil Association (UK). G.O.T.S covers the production, processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, export, import and distribution to ensure that no harm has been done during the whole process.

The production process of our recycled clothing

Our recycled products are certified in accordance with the Global Recycled Standard and the Organic Content Standard by Control Union Certifications, licence CU 828402. In other words, this means that the whole supply chain has been checked and reports traceability, environmental principles, social requirements and labelling. This also means that the traceability and integrity of the raw materials during all the manufacturing stages has been checked. The GRS ensures accurate content claims, good working conditions, and minimises harmful environmental and chemical impacts.

Carbon footprint

As a result of using renewable energy and low-impact farming techniques, we have reduced the carbon footprint of our organic shirts by over 89%, while producing the apparel in an ethical and sustainable manner. This proves that it is possible to produce cotton clothing without any detrimental effects on the Earth's soil, water, or inhabitants, whether they be animals, plants or people, or to its climate. Example: The Carbon Trust calculated that without the use of renewable energy, the carbon footprint of the Men's classic organic white t-shirt in size Large would have been 6.574kg CO2; it now stands at 671gwhich represents an 89.79% reduction in CO emissions.

Low water usage

It can take more than 20,000 litres of water to produce 1kg of cotton, equivalent to a single T-shirt and pair of jeans. That’s why we chose to work in a region that receives up to 95% of its water from the monsoon rain. This was an important consideration for us, as the monsoon rain reduces the need for large-scale irrigation projects normally associated with conventional cotton farming, which often deprive local villages of scarce water resources by draining lakes and rivers.

Fair working condition

All our recycled and organic products are a part of the Fair Wear Foundation, an independent, non-profit organization whose main focus is improving the textile industry's working conditions. Everyone on this planet has a right to a safe and healthy work environment, to be paid a living wage and to be free from harassment and fair working hours.
