SMART

Manufacturing

SUPERVISING EFFICIENCY

  • We supervise every step of the production tightly so as to avoid technical and human errors, saving time and yarns.

  • We have photovoltaic panels which provide 40% of our energy.

CONSTRUCTING SMART

  • We mostly produce fully fashion garments, which generate less waste than cutting knitted panels.

  • We use a machine to recycle yarns by putting them back to cones.

NO FAST FASHION

  • We only work with premium to luxury brands.

  • We do not contribute to fast-fashion’s massive volumes of generated waste.

FACTORY STRATEGIES

RECYCLE, REUSE, REDUCE

  • We aim to use 75%  recycled or organic materials which require little processing.

  • We aim to recycle all materials produced and only use products that serve multiple purposes which last for years.

  • We aim to use only certified recycled packaging for all brands when shipping samples & production.

GENERAL FUNCTIONNING

  • Reduction of CO2 emissions through the deployment of low carbon process technologies

  • Reduction of water consumption through the use of 3R technologies (Reduce, reuse, recycle).

  • Implementation of environmental management to conserve biodiversity, management of chemicals and cooperation with local communities.

  • To plant trees each year, reducing Carbon Footprint.

  • Use of low-energy evaporative cooling systems replacing air conditionings and dissipated heat from machine tools. 

GREEN MANUFACTURING

  • Making on-demand production and mass customization will result in a reduction of the waste stock produced. 

  • We are currently training to be able to make 3D samples for our customers, with a special computerised program reducing the sampling time, the amount of parcels shipped and the yarn usage.
