Did you know that more than 10% of the cotton that we use is organically culitvated? By 2021, we aim to use 100% sustainable cotton, including organic cotton, recycled cotton and cotton from the Better Cotton Initiative!
We also focus on the use of recycled cotton from the post and pre-consumer waste. Post-consumer waste, e.g. is used clothing that comes from donations. Pre-consumer waste includes fabric residues from cutting during production. The objective is to keep both types of waste away from landfills.
Tencel™ is a natural and particularly sustainable cellulose fiber and it is up to 100% degradeable. We use it for summer denim-like fabrics. Its special properties include being smooth and cool to wear - perfect for the summer. Washable and soft to the touch.
Esprit is certified according to the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS). 2% of the wool used for our current collection is RWS certified already. Our aim is for 50% of our wool to be RWS certified by 2020.
