Global Organic Textile Standard label, the strictest certification for textiles made from organic fibres. GOTS tracks the entire chain of production from farm to factory: from harvesting of the cotton, weaving of fibres, assembly of items, to the final product before printing, including even the export of our clothing. However, if you yourself are not GOTS certified then you cannot use the GOTS logo once you have transformed the garment.
GRS (Global Recycled Standard)
The GRS standard aims to control the recycled content of intermediate and finished products. The purpose is to ensure that the manufacturing process and the social and environmental practices of companies are sustainable and responsible. It guarantees the requirement and accuracy of the certification issued.
Hessian: a natural plant-based material. Biodegradable, resistant and recyclable, jute fibre does not require fertilisers or pesticides to grow and emits little CO².
Hemp is a natural fibre from the cannabinaceae family. It comes from the “Cannabis Sativa”, a plant with the ability to adapt perfectly to different soils and climates. It grows very rapidly (in just 3 months) and consumes very little water. A sustainable and resistant material.
Low Shrinkage Terry: high-quality French terry treated to significantly reduce shrinkage, perfect printing, excellent comfort.
(Low Shrinkage Fleece) : High quality 80% combed cotton / 20% polyester fleece with low shrinkage. The inner and outer faces of the fabric contain a continuous filament that offers excellent resistance to washing. The outer face is perfect for printing, while the inner face is extremely comfortable.
Linen is a noble and eco-friendly fabric that consumes little water and requires very few fertilisers and pesticides. The result is a sustainable, environmentally friendly, light and resistant fabric.

Pre-consumer recycled materials
Materials that come from waste generated during a manufacturing process. Excluded is the reuse of materials that come from a production process and that can be recovered in the same process that generates them.
Post-consumer recycled materials
Materials that come from consumption waste generated by households or by industries and businesses in their role as end-users. This includes returns of materials from the distribution chain.
Resistant, synthetic yarn, flexible, crease resistant, easy-care.
Recycled cotton is derived from worn clothing or scraps of unused fabrics. Clothes that are not in a suitable condition for second-hand wear can thus enter a recycling channel. They will be sorted into colours and fabrics, then ground, shredded and spun into a new thread which will be used to make a fabric and, ultimately, new clothes.
Yarns and weft positioned squarely to prevent ripping.
This yarn provides a smoother fabric surface and is softer to the touch. Clothing is more pleasant to wear and offers better printing quality.
