We're proud to partner with some fantastic suppliers. Working collaboratively to find solutions to the complex nature of developing products into the circular economy.
Our fabric mill
We couldn't have found a more perfect partner for our first fabric development. Tintex Textiles are at the forefront of innovation, working with global yarn suppliers that are pushing the boundaries in technology.
They have created a top-level facility, less than an hour from our garment maker, that reduces energy consumption water efficiency - and reuse and recycle 98% of their production's waste materials.
At Tintex Textiles, transparency is non-negotiable and they are on their own journey into the circular economy. We're excited to partner with them on our material developments.
Our garment maker
Based in beautiful Barcelos just north of Porto this family-owned factory has been producing premium quality jersey-wear products since the 1970s. They are experts at handling knitted fabrics and have worked closely with us to align our environmental commitments into their manufacturing processes. The CEO, Joao, has a strong ethical commitment to his workers and has policies in place to protect worker rights and employee welfare. Pushing to minimise waste they work with local recycling centres to reuse cutting room floor waste. Now in a state of the art solar-powered facilty. This factory is producing all of our jersey-wear products including our underwear range.
Our charity partner organisation the OR Foundation (pronounced "or") is a USA and Ghana based not-for-profit, operating between the two countries since 2009.
They work at the intersection of environmental justice education and fashion development with a mission to create alternatives to the dominant fashion model that brings ecological prosperity, as opposed to destruction and to re-address the balance of the fashion system.
We are working with UK-based, UPCYCLE LABS to recycle any unwanted underwear into material for in-store displays. Upcycle Labs is a material science and technology company providing innovative upcycling services for fashion brands & retailers to convert waste textiles into new high-quality products for store fittings and more. The material works ina. closed loop system for the leadt environmental harm. We can't wait to show you what we've been working on, but in the meantime, if you have any unwanted underwear you can send it to us for recycling preventing anything going to landfill.
