TITLE: Organic Cotton TEXT: Organic cotton is grown entirely without chemical pesticides, artificial fertiliser or genetically modified seeds, which results in better soil quality, greater biodiversity and balanced ecosystems. The organic quality of the cotton is assured by independent inspections according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) or Organic Content Standard (OCS). Garments that are GOTS-certified bear the GOTS symbol on the garment label. Sometimes we mix organic cotton with other fibres to create an Organic Cotton Blend. The resulting garment is then composed of a combination of organic cotton and other fibres, but never conventionally farmed cotton. It is expensive and time consuming to convert agriculture to organic. Therefore, only a small part of all cotton production in the world is organic.

TITLE: TENCEL™ Lyocell TEXT: TENCEL™ Lyocell are cellulose fibers made of wood from more sustainably managed forests in a closed-loop system, which recycles the process water and solvents up to 99%. Moreover, the fibres are 100% biodegradable. TENCEL™ is a trademark of Lenzing AG.

TITLE: LIVAECO BY BIRLA CELLULOSE™ TEXT: A viscose quality made of Birla Cellulose fibers, which comes from certified responsible forestry. The material is produced in a closed system, where the water and solvents are reused, causing a reduced impact on the environment. Products containing this fiber are labelled with “Livaeco by Birla Cellulose™” on the hangtag/packaging

TITLE: Recycled Polyester TEXT: Recycled polyester is made from PET bottles and scraps and by-products from the manufacturing industry, as opposed to conventional polyester which is made from oil. Making recycled material is less resource-intensive than producing material from scratch, which is why it reduces pollution and energy consumption. It also reduces the volume of waste. Our Recycled Polyester-labelled garments contain at least 50 percent recycled material.

TITLE: Rescued Fabrics TEXT: Often, design comes first, and materials second. But with Rescued Leftovers we’re doing the exact opposite. What remnant fabrics might our suppliers have in their storages? How can we design garments to put those remnants to use? The environmental benefit is immense when materials that already exist are put to use, rather than being sent for incineration or ending up in a landfill.

TITLE: Recycled Polaymide TEXT: The raw material source for recycled polyamide can be old fishing nets and carpets, and also waste from the manufacturing industry. Materials that would otherwise be scrapped are used, which saves the planet’s precious resources and contributes to reduced emissions. Our Recycled Polyamide-labelled garments contain at least 50 percent recycled material.

TITLE: Our Denim TEXT: All of our denim is made with certified materials and production processes that use less chemicals, energy and water than conventional jeans production methods. The materials we use are Better Cotton, organic cotton, recycled cotton and recycled polyester. The prewash process for our denim products involves far fewer chemicals, about half as much water and almost 30 per cent less energy, as compared with conventional denim production.

TITLE: Waterborne PU TEXT: PU stands for polyurethane and is a coating used on artificial leather and rainwear. This coating does not contain any chemicals that have a proven negative impact on people or the environment.
