WATER STEWARDSHIP
We do not use any of the usual mordantsĀ  because they are pollutant. All the raw materials we use are of natural origin, they do not contain toxic substances, therefore, all the effluent water of our dye process is only loaded with plant substances and minerals. With a simple sand filter the water becomes clean again and can be reused; the sand loaded with vegetable and mineral nutrients is a perfect fertilizer.

MATERIAL REUSE
Our textiles never become a waste. Our garments and fabrics are made entirely from natural materials, renewable materials or recycled materials. 100% of the product can be safely returned to nature or eventually recycled into new products.

SOCIAL FAIRNESS
To create a positive impact in the communities where our work is done is the main principle of our company and it is part of our DNA. We encourage working teams, suppliers and customers to make relevant improvement in the working conditions and business practices.

CLEAN AND RENEWABLE ENERGY
We use 100% renewable energy in the manufacture of our dyes and pigments. Our dyeing process is very short (1 hour) and it is done in cold, so we reduce the total amount of energy needed.
