Our certifications represent our shared commitment to protect our planet, our makers and, ultimately, our community.
Here's a glossary of all the certifications we have that prove the quality and safety of the raw materials as well as the animal's well-being.
Cashmere Goats Welfare
Our supplier, Cardiff Cashmere, puts a lot of resources into the education of herdsmen towards the respect of animals' welfare. They visit their farms in China and Mongolia twice a year to inspect how the animals are kept and treated, as they only trade fibers that are grown according to ethical standards.
Cottonforlife is a project promoted by our supplier Filmar that aims to promote sustainable fashion by creating a transparent textile supply chain, entirely eco-friendly and socially responsible. In fact, the project includes the cultivation of organic and sustainable extra-long lime cotton, protection of workers' rights, education and training throughout the supply chain, promotion of Egyptian cotton and enhancement of the local know-how.
Recognized across Europe and worldwide, the EU Ecolabel is a label of environmental excellence that is awarded to products that, while meeting high-performance standards, are characterized by a reduction of their environmental impact throughout their life cycle by being upcycled materials.
European Flax Standard
The European Flax certification guarantees linen's local farming that respects the environment and commits to zero irrigation, zero GMOs, and zero waste. It certifies also the traceability of the fiber at every step of processing and the use of zero chemicals during the fiber extraction.
The GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certification guarantees the use of natural fibers from crops that do not use chemical pesticides or GMOs and which are treated with non-toxic products for humans.
The Global Recycled Standard certifies that a product is made with recycled materials, while verifying the traceability, the chemical products usage and the respect of environmental and social criteria in all stages of production.
The term "Mulesing free" indicates that the yarn comes from an animal that has not undergone the practice of mulesing. It involves the removal of a part of the skin and sometimes also of the tail itself, especially in Merino sheep to prevent spread of infections.
OCS (Organic Cotton Standard) is an international standard that certifies that a product contains at least 95% certified organic materials. It verifies the presence and amount of organic material in a final product and tracks the flow of the raw material from its source to the final product.
Oeko-Tex is an international system of certification for companies in the textile industry. It tests raw materials, intermediate products and end products.
The label "Confidence in Textiles" guarantees that the products are free from harmful substances and that the textile production is safe and transparent.
The SustainaWOOL Integrity Scheme provides high standards within the wool production system in Australia and integrity and traceability along the whole supply chain, by covering 6 key pillars: health and wellbeing of sheeps (Mulesing Free), farm stewardship practices, quality of the wool and clip preparation, social responsibility and traceability.
Textile & Health Association
The certification of the Textile and Health Association guarantees the consumer regarding the origin, traceability and safety of the yarn.
UL Bio-Based Content
The UL Bio-based content certifies that a product contains bio-based content (material derived from plants and other renewable resources) through testing.
The garment’s production creates zero waste thanks to a 3D machine that knits the entire garment in one go, preventing textile waste that occurs in the production of traditional knitwear, in which every part is produced singularly and later assembled together.
The Woolmark certification program verifies and guarantees the quality of wool yarns, rigorously tested through fiber analysis, color fastness and yarn strength tests.
The ZDHC foundation’s mission is to allow brands and retailers in the textile implement Sustainable Chemical Management best practices along the supply chain through the collaborative engagement and the definition of standards, to achieve the elimination of toxic and harmful substances from drains and emissions, in order to protect consumers, workers and the environment.
