Circularity
The challenge for us is to reduce our impact on the planet, aiming to become a circular company.

This means that our products must: be easily recyclable; safer materials; recycled or sustainable; and last longer.

We strive to offer the quality that can make our clothes last longer and we favour simple compositions for our products, limiting the use of mixed materials.

In this way:

  • 67% of our collections are already easily recyclable at the end of life into new textile materials
  • 32% can be recovered in other production sectors
  • only 1% does not have a valid destination

We are working to expand the range of garments designed to last longer in our collections.

Circular Fashion Partnership:
between transparency and circularity

In 2020, we joined the Circular Fashion Partnership in Bangladesh to collaborate with our suppliers in recovering production waste and making new materials with it.

Therefore we give our supplies a way to transform disposal costs into a source of revenue and, at the same time, we contribute to fighting against local micro-crime in the rubbish disposal sector.
