We purchase only raw materials from qualified suppliers who meet the highest standards of environmental and social sustainability. This is the only way we are able to produce fabrics made from organic cotton (BCI, OCS and GOTS certifications), recycled raw materials (GRS and RCS certification) and feathers (RDS certification) used for upholstered garments.
Natural organically grown cotton and wool fibers harvested, processed and labeled only after verification of compliance with the most stringent international regulations.
The Organic Content Standard (OCS) is a voluntary global standard that establishes criteria for third-party certification of organic materials and chain of custody.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) was developed by leading standards bodies to define globally recognized requirements for organic textiles. From raw material harvesting to ecologically and socially responsible production to labeling, GOTS-certified textiles provide a credible guarantee to the consumer.
RDS includes the issuance of a third-party verified environmental statement that ensures that down and feathers used for stuffing elements are obtained from waterfowl (goose and duck) or land birds (e.g., chicken and turkey) that have not been subjected to treatment that causes pain, suffering or stress, and so that traceability is maintained throughout the entire production process. Included in the certification is the entire production chain: rearing of the birds, slaughter, collection and processing of the feathers (sorting, dedusting, thorough washing, removal of excess water, drying), and production of the clothing and textile products. Down and feathers, textile products and manufacturing activities can be certified under the RDS.
GRS involves the issuance of a third-party verified environmental statement that ensures the recycled material content of their products, both intermediate and finished, the maintenance of traceability throughout the entire production process, restrictions in the use of chemicals, and compliance with environmental and social criteria at all stages of the production chain: from the recycling of materials, to the subsequent manufacturing stages, to the labeling of the finished product. Stages that are not covered by certification are waste collection, sorting, grading and grouping. Products and manufacturing activities can be certified under GRS.
Responsible Wool Standard
