Our main factory groups in Portugal and Turkey focus very heavily on sustainability. This is not just in the manufacture of clothing but also in the regeneration processes. The new 360 plant in Portugal for example takes pre-consumer waste from the factory and unsold garments and mixes it with post-consumer in order to create renewable yarns which saves water. The waste from the renewable process is then turned into paper.
The building reduces air circulation and optimises power and water consumption, which will are controlled by a smart electric panel that gives real time energy use, allowing an efficient control/optimisation.
The factory accreditations include GOTS (organic textiles standard), Global Recycle Standard, Oekotex and Sedex which covers working practices. This 5,000 sqm circular knitting plant has unique quality control and access, enabling our team to be full involved from initial design through to packaging.
Our factory in Turkey manufactures a lot of our latest cotton/modal products including the T-shirt, Sweatshirt, Joggers and shorts. They meet all Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) requirements, covering original materials, manufacturing quality, labour, and working conditions. BSCI provides a system to help companies improve conditions in their supply chain, such as ensuring no child labour and that fair wages are paid to the people in manufacturing.
Our packaging is fully recycled and recyclable. The swing tickets are made from recycled card and the bags are made from fully recycled and recyclable plastic.
