ENERGY & WASTE
They have adopted a high tech, waste water homogenization aimed at reducing the amount of polluting agents before it is sent to the municipal water treatment plant. Moreover, a sophisticated system to sort rainwater from civil and industrial waters has also been implemented so as to harvest and re-use rainwater in the production process. Water to be used in our company is extracted from our own boreholes and is first used to cool down the knitting machines oil. Then it is treated and used for cooling down the dyeing machinery. After that, it is collected and re-used for rinsing fabrics after they are dyed and if finally sent to the homogenisation plant.
We are members of Barcelona sustainable association, and ethical time, a sustainable local platform.
Our mission is to reduce the environmental impact of fashion, using sustainable fabrics of high quality, biodegradable packaging and locally produced in an artisanal way.
Even the smallest detail is studied and controlled. In addition, our designs are 100% vegan.
Also, with each purchase you are helping those who protect our planet. Since 1% of the proceeds go to NGOs who fight for the preservation of the wildlife of our planet.
Each season we collaborate with a different organization, to help as many environmental causes as we can.
