It is important to us that our CONCEPT GREEN products are proportionately made of materials that are as natural and environmentally friendly as possible. Our goal is to have the sustainable components extended to all collection items as soon as possible.
Wool with sustainable predicates
Wool is a purely natural product that is inherently renewable and biodegradable. Nevertheless, not all wool is the same. In addition to the conventional raw material, we also use recycled, mulesing-free and undyed wool. The advantage: natural resources and the environment are spared.
The Harris Tweed fabric is dyed and woven with great care and tradition in Scotland. Only 100% mulesing-free, British new wool is used. All dyes used are on the approved ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals) list. The final Harris Tweed fabric is also certified Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX.
GOTS certified outer fabric
GOTS is a globally recognised standard for the processing of textiles made from organically produced natural fibres. The label defines environmental requirements along the entire textile production chain as well as social criteria. The fabrics of our weavers, such as Leomaster, Marzotto and Olimpias, must also already be GOTS-certified in order for us to be able to produce our GOTS articles from them. We ourselves are also certified with the number BCS 36611.
Not only the processing of natural fibres is environmentally friendly, but also the recycling of raw materials that are already in circulation. This can be, for example, pre-comsumer material or chips from used bottles. Among other things, we use recycled cotton, recycled polyamide and recycled polyester. This creates less waste in the long term and conserves natural resources.
Certified trims and fabrics
In addition, we use ingredients and fabrics that have already been certified by our suppliers and weavers. These include certified for harmful substances tested ingredients (e.g. buttons, lining, etc.) and outer fabrics for, among others, cotton and linen or certified paper and viscose from sustainable forestry. We also use sustainably certified cotton.
