Hi everyone! We hope you had a great long weekend spending time with family.
As a growing player in the apparel industry, an industry who's sustainability and ethics are constantly coming under question, we wanted to provide some transparency around our supply chain and recent improvements we've made to our partners and our commitment to manufacturing the highest quality clothing that will last for years to come.
Our take on sustainability?
We distill down to the essentials and upgrade quality to cultivate consistency and longevity in your closet.
Over the last year, we moved our supply chain to Europe from Asia. We did this for three reasons: (1) the fabric mills in Europe are focused on making sustainable and eco-friendly fabric, (2) to reduce our carbon footprint significantly, and (3) to source higher quality materials that do not require as many chemicals from the seed stage.
Many of our partners, like Isko and Guabello, have strict regulations around the amount of water they use and recycling water. For example, Isko is the only denim mill in the world awarded with the prestigious Nordic SWAN Ecolabel and the EU Ecolabel. Similarly, Gubaello’s Impact Zero performance wool fabric uses 1/3 less water and chemicals than traditional wool fabric.
We’ve significantly reduced our carbon footprint, since all of our manufacturing partners are within close proximity of one another. We ship more efficiently by using a single freight forwarder and aggregating shipments into a single shipment since the product is produced in the same region.
The factories in Turkey are regarded as some of the best factories in the world for quality, worker safety, and compensation. Our factories treat their work force extremely well and the factory conditions are modern and pristine. Our mills and manufacturers are centuries old and focus on higher quality sustainable brands to partner with.
Finally, we’ve taken steps to massively improve our raw materials. This starts with sourcing top-of-the-line premium cottons, leathers, and cashmeres from factories in Italy, Europe and Inner Mongolia for cashmere. Using better fabrics starts at the fiber growth phase; our organic cotton doesn’t use any pesticides and is grown following a sustainable cycle. Our fabric producers believe in sustainable practices and make for the leading luxury brands in the world who are driven by enduring quality. This results in higher quality materials, and construction, which means our products have a much longer life cycle.
This is an important part of our ethos, and we're always looking for ways to do better.
