We're 100% Transparent
We'll tell you where we are now and be honest about the gaps.
Our supply chain is
We have a global supply chain and are continuously working with our partners to develop traceability to raw material across all our products. It's complex in nature and there will always be ways to improve so we're not finished yet.
Whilst we're working on being 100% traceable, we've given each of our products a traceabilty score.
We're measuring the impact of all our products on our first production run to understand the environmental impact of everything we create.
We're working on the lifecycle assessments of our launch collection. We'll look at our CO2, water and energy consumption to name a few.
Once we know the score, you'll receive an impact receipt with your order, so you can see just how powerful your pants really are.
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 are at the forefront of innovation, working with global yarn suppliers that are pushing the boundaries in technology.
Tintex 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, 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.
