In just 10 years, our textile partner has vastly reduced their water (by 30%), electricity (by 1,316 TEP/year) & chemical consumption (by 70%)
We believe in partnering with people who share our values: those committed to protecting the environment, pushing boundaries, and paving the way for a brighter future.
After looking at hundreds of materials, and speaking with over a dozen manufacturers, our Creative Director hit the jackpot: a specialist maker of cotton that supplies some of the world’s most renowned fashion labels.
But there’s more to this factory than their luxury clientele. Their efforts to reduce their water consumption, give back to their community, and their outstanding dedication to making the finest cotton ultimately made this an easy choice for us.
When we flew to the Western Aegean part of Turkey to check out their operations, we knew we had to tell their story. Here are some highlights:
Mastering One Trade
Since its founding in the 70’s, this company has dedicated their time and effort to mastering one field: shirting fabrics. For over four decades they have stuck true to their roots and developed their offerings within their niche.
What inspired us to choose this factory was their principled approach to craftsmanship. They didn’t follow trends or chase money. They simply perfected what they did best. As a result, their design, quality, and finish stands unrivalled today.
The Future, Today
For years, this supplier has been a pioneer in ecological fabrics. They continue to develop and invest in waste-reduction programmes, as well as renewable energy sources. In just 10 years, our textile partner has vastly reduced their water (by 30%), electricity (by 1,316 TEP/year) and chemical consumption (by 70%). Since 1998 they have planted 15,000 trees and continue to pump investment into research and development.
When we saw their eco-line, we decided to chose their signature Organic Cotton (GTOS certified) for our Shirtdress and Batwing Tunic.
Giving Back, Before Going Forward
After seeing our fabric suppliers commitment to supporting local economies, our search for the perfect partner officially ended.
One of the most notable examples was the award winning restoration of a historic mosque situated in their hometown. Dating back to the 1400's, this project took 5 years to complete and its remarkable beauty can witnessed by the public today because of their efforts.
