Ideas and tips to save resources and make your clothes last longer.
Did you know it is actually better to wash jeans less often? it's a simple fix for a quick refresh – just put the garment in a large freezer bag and place in the freezer overnight. This is really useful for garments such as jeans that can lose their fit when washed.
Wash the jeans on a gentle cycle at a cool temperature (30°C) with similar colours.
Close zips, fasten buttons and turn jeans inside out before you wash (this reduces colour loss and fabric abrasion on the right side).
100% of our items undergo chemical and physical testing to ensure compliance with the limits we have set for the use of chemicals, which at times are even more stringent that those set by international standards.
Polyester is an extremely versatile man-made fibre with characteristics that make it ideal for clothing. The impact associated with its production in terms of the use of energy and solvents, is quite limited. However, the material from which it is made - crude oil - is not biodegradable. We are working towards replacing it with regenerated polyester or other, more sustainable materials.
Acrylic is a man-made fibre that is fossil in origin, and it is widely used for its characteristics of light weight and softness, as well as for its heat-insulating properties. Its extraction stage involves a high environmental impact, comparable to that of other materials with similar characteristics, such as wool. We are working to replace it with more sustainable alternatives.
Cotton is a natural fibre, but it can have a significant impact on the environment in terms of water consumption and use of pesticides. OVS is working towards buying 100% more sustainable cotton, including through Better Cotton, aiming to improving the impact of cotton growing on people and the environment.
Viscose - or rayon - is a man-made fibre with natural origins. Although it comes from natural materials such as wood, the standard process to make viscose uses large amounts of energy and solvents. This is why we are working to replace it with alternatives made by manufacturers who use high-tech production methods with reduced environmental impact.
Wool is a natural fibre with animal origins, traditionally used for its light weight, softness and insulation properties. It is renewable and biodegradable, but its production is associated with a high impact on the environment. We are working towards using alternatives such as regenerated or certified wool, or even towards replacing it with something more sustainable.
Polyamide is a fossil-based man-made fibre used for its water resistance and elasticity. We are working to replace it with regenerated polyamide or other, more sustainable materials.
We have made conscious choices based on the utmost responsibility and transparency at every stage in the production chain. All of our suppliers share this same commitment towards the well-being of people and the planet, and are compliant with the strictest protocols in terms of eco- and social sustainability.
