Welcome to the 21st century! Our period - but all over the world the people do not care. We cannot even support this poor condition because of our personal ideas and submit to economical, humanely and economically friendly trading terms for peaceful and quiet sleep.

 

FAIR WEAR - Ethical Trading                                 

Some companies go further, and open up their manufacturing processes and business practices to scrutiny by organizations set up to promote fair labour conditions such as the ‘FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION' (FWF).

The FWF exists to promote fair labour conditions in the garment industry world wide; this means it's member companies have undersigned FWF's Code of Labour practices, and thereby the company has committed itself to monitor the factories of its suppliers, and the Fair Wear Foundation verifies that the Code of Labour Practices is actually implemented and respected at the factories.


 

 ÖKO TEX STANDARD 100 & ENVIRONMENT

The safety and quality of the apparel that we offer for sale, the welfare of the people involved in our manufacturing, and the protection of the environment are our principle priorities. We fulfill these objectives by adhering to and complying with a number of norms, standards, and directives.

The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Mark (Öko-Tex) is probably the most widely recognised standard in textiles, which sets strict limits on the amount of substances harmful to consumers which can be found in the finished textile product. Although Oeko-Tex standards only address specifically consumer's health issues, the necessity to comply with the criteria induces better environmental practices at the processing and manufacturing level. The standards offer significant environmental benefits.

The Oeko-Tex 100 Standard comprehensively addresses the Human Ecology component of textile products. It evaluates and screens for any harmful substances present within processed textiles intended to come into contact with consumers.

The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 encompasses the industries established testing criteria for textile products and also addresses quality assurance and test procedures. It not only takes into account the finished textile goods, but also any associated accessories and "grey" product areas such as fibres, yarns and buttons. In this standard, the relevant harmful substances are defined together with limiting values, taking into consideration the intended use of the product. For example: clothing articles worn close to the skin such as underwear and baby products.

An integral part of the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 system is the Quality Assurance by the producer who has to ensure that that
products manufactured or sold are representative to the samples tested for the Oeko-Tex certificate. Spot testing by the Oeko-Tex institutes of products selected from both the production and those available on the market is carried out, providing an additional control mechanism.
We have measured our organisation's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reduced them to net zero through internal change and externally, through carbon offsetting in accordance with the requirements of the Carbon Neutral Protocol1 for our type of activity.

An emissions assessment/audit has been undertaken by an independent third party in accordance with the WBCSD-WRI GHG Protocol2.

Emissions reduced through carbon offsetting: 126 tonnes CO2e

1) Sebenoba-Karakurt wind power project, Turkey, VCS (90t CO2e)
2) Sichuan province hydro power project, China, CDM (36t CO2e)


The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Mark

The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Mark (or Öko-Tex ) is probably the most widely recognised standard in textiles, which sets strict limits on the amount of substances harmful to consumers which can be found in the finished textile product. The mark states "Confidence in Textiles" is displayed on textile products which have been tested by one of the member institutes. Criteria are even more stringent for baby clothes than any other textiles. Most of the criteria for residues in the baby clothes category are comparable to health criteria of the organic textile standards.

Although Oeko-Tex standards only address specifically consumer's health issues, the necessity to comply with the criteria induces better environmental practices at the processing and manufacturing level. The standards offer significant environmental benefits. Therefore, when choosing a sustainable T-shirt, look for Oeko-Tex certified T-shirts, made with 100% organic certified cotton.

 

Textiles and printing colours

We only produce with special selected natural materials: a.o. finest combed cotton, ecological bamboo jersey, bio-cotton, modal of Lenzing and Lycra® Elasthan also for jerseys, ripps and interlocks. All our textiles - including the vintage collection - are dyed reactive. Our garments are characterized by fine knitting and compact weaving structure. Therefore we use the 60/1s yarn made of cotton. This kind of yarn allows perfect printing surface for a colorful and stylish selection of designs and techniques.

 

Soft touch & superfine colorsupport

You won't sweat on hot summer days! The printing colors are not sensible because of high professional production methods - especially flimsy, very fine to wear on your body.


Unique washing characteristics
The designs will be stamped into the cloth with our unique production technique to bond with the colors better than with normal direct printing methods on the garments. Additionally the durability on the garments stay longer than on common textiles.

We do also other printing methods like flock-printing, heat-transfer printing and screen-printing.
