We're raising the bar on sustainable apparel..
ETHICALLY SOURCED | ORGANICALLY GROWN | BIODEGRADABLE
We define sustainability as the condition in which our entire planet and all of its inhabitants thrive. A condition which isn’t static but with constant improvement that makes the whole eco system work better over time. In our community, this includes ethical, diet, fitness and spiritual aspects. Within our company it includes stewardship of the environment, our staff, our customers, our suppliers and the areas in which we operate. We are fully committed to operating in an ethical and sustainable way.
Our Merino comes from sheep grown in Australia and certified to meet or exceed the the following global standards:
bluesign helps you identify products that meet their high scrutiny criteria. To meet bluesign, a product must have: the highest degree of safety for the consumer, be manufactured with the lowest possible impact on people and the environment, and show responsible use of resources.
REACH was created to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks posed by chemicals. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals, keeping our sheep and your skin happy.
Responsible Wool Standard is an independent, voluntary standard. On our farms this means the sheep are treated with respect to their Five Freedoms: freedom from hunger or thirst, freedom from discomfort, freedom from pain, freedom to express normal behaviors, and freedom from fear and distress. It also best practices in the management and protection of the land.
IVN created a certification called Naturtextil currently defines the highest level of textile sustainability by applying the maximum currently achievable parameters to production and product. It includes areas such as environmental protections, organic production, and chemical management from fibre, to yarn, to fabric.
GOTS - or Global Organic Textile Standard, defines and inspects for organic fibre product flow, verifying organic fibre, fabric, water treatment/flow, and any manufacturing inputs, are all organic. Our fabric is all made in GOTS certified factories to make sure you're getting what you pay for.
OEKO-TEX Standard 100. Whew, what a mouthful! But it's actually important to us at BRANWYN, since it designates a worldwide, consistent, and independent certification system for textiles that limits the chemicals used in the manufacture. And less chemicals in the process means less chemicals against your skin or in the environment.
The Detox manifesto, a program by GreenPeace, envisions a toxic-free future by removing toxins from your clothing and its manufacture, and by turning the vicious cycle of fast fashion into something more sustainable and more virtuous.
