  • RECYCLED FABRICS

    We aim to use only fabrics made from recycled materials, or reclaimed from our factory warehouse. Many brands purchase too much material, leaving ‘deadstock’ to sit and ultimately be discarded. We use only what we need, and actively use deadstock.

  • PFC-FREE DWR

    PFC or PFAS as they are known, are coatings applied to face fabrics to help water ‘bead’ and roll off. We have been pioneering the use of PFC/PFAS-free Durable Water Repellant coatings for over a decade.

  • END-OF-LIFE

    Once a product has reached its end of life and cannot be repaired, we recycled it and either repurpose the materials and trims, or recycle.
