MATERIALS AND CARE
Care for fibre & water: at least 95% cotton in conversion to ecologically grown cotton & 5% recycled cotton.
We work with monitoring programmes to ensure compliance with our social, environmental and health and safety standards for our garments.
To assess compliance, we have developed a programme of audits and continuous improvement plans.
COTTON IN CONVERSION TO ECOLOGICALLY GROWN COTTON
This cotton is obtained during the transition process required for a conventional plantation to achieve ecologically grown certification. Supporting farmers during this process, known as plantations in conversion, is vital to encourage the establishment of such crops.
Although they do not yet have ecologically grown certification, they are produced using the same natural cultivation techniques, using natural fertilisers and pesticides and without the use of genetically modified seeds.
The use of these natural techniques helps to conserve biodiversity and freshwater resources.
We only use cotton in conversion to ecologically grown cotton certified by organisations which monitor the process from the raw material to the final product. At present, we work with:
Organic Content Standard (OCS)
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
Recycled cotton is obtained from cotton textile waste sorted by type and colour and later shredded and transformed into a new cotton fibre.
The use of recycled cotton reduces the consumption of virgin raw materials. By transforming the cotton waste into a new recycled fibre, we avoid the cultivation of new cotton plantations.
This way, waste is also transformed into a resource.
We only use recycled cotton certified by organisations which monitor the process from the source to the final product. At present, we work with:
Global Recycled Standard (GRS)
Recycled Content Standard (RCS)
CARE FOR WATER
These garments are produced with technologies that reduce water consumption in their production processes.
The garment dyeing and washing processes consume the largest amount of water. Using closed circuits that allow us to reuse water or employing technologies such as low bath ratio machines or mass dyeing, which reduce water consumption, helps us to preserve freshwater resources.
