We’re committed to a more sustainable production which includes the materials we use in our collections. We don’t view it as a quick fix but something we’re taking seriously as part of the Circularity Commitment we signed with the Global Fashion Agenda and will incorporate Sustainable Development Goal 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production - within this.
For us to begin incorporating Sustainable Development Goal 12 and ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns, we have started our journey of reviewing our production from the fibres and materials we work with, where we produce, where we sell and who we work with, to make solid improvements.
So far, we’ve managed to introduce the following sustainable materials:
