What is the particularity of your production for sustainable development? 

Sustainability is a culture, not a concept, product or label. It is very important to create a perspective on sustainability with a holistic approach. We have our own sustainability team dedicated to sustainable activities in our company.

When choosing raw materials, we pay attention to the sustainability criterias, and we ensure the traceability of raw materials we used with certificates such as OCS, GRS, RCS, FSC. Almost 100% of our collection, which has been prepared for the last 3 years, is designed using the most sustainable raw materials available.

For the new machine investments, we also take into consideration of its contribution to sustainable production besides the technical features of the machine and its investment cost. The environmental impact of the chemicals used in our fabric production is checked monthly with the ZDHC in-check report and 100% compliance is achieved.

There are several studies on process shortening, dyeing with lower temperatures, use of more environment friendly chemicals and process development using lower energy. We carry out research and development of more environmental friendly dyeing processes to continuously. We ensure the product safety and sustainability of our printed or dyed fabrics with Oekotex Standard 100 certificate.

We are a member of HIGG Facility Social & Labor Module (FSLM) and HIGG Facility Environment Module (FEM), SEDEX (Pillar 4). We share our transparency, annual improvement plans and their results with our stakeholders via these platforms.

How do you work with bamboo fibre?

We use regenerated bamboo fibre in our woven fabrics.  We both use staple and filament bamboo yarn. For all types of viscose fabrics  we offer bamboo version for a more environmental friendly alternative. We also obtain a more user-friendly product in terms of skin compatibility with its antibacterial feature.

 

How do you think about bamboo filament?

Bamboo is a renewable source for regenerated fibers when compared with regular viscose. Because raw material, bamboo, only needs 3 years to be ready for fiber production.

But regular viscose production use beech tree which needs more than 3 years. It doesn’t need any pesticide while growing since it has natural antibacterial property. It needs less water than cotton. It is biodegradable. We can declare FSC certificate for transparency and traceability of bamboo yarn.

 

Is there a demand for stylsite on this fibre?

Human are becoming more and more conscious every day about protecting nature and sustainability. Awareness has also increased in the final consumer in recent years.

The curiosity and questioning attitude of the Z generation and their conscious consumption tendency push brands and manufacturers to produce more responsible and fairer in almost every  field.

Due to our responsibility to nature and the environment, as well as the conscious behavior of consumers, none of us can turn our eyes  blind  to use sustainable  solutions anymore.

As  we equip our collections  with fully sustainable and  environment friendly products, the  chain is perfectly complemented  and brands are finding  the environmental products they  are looking for and  demanding them with enthusiasm.

 

How do you ensure the quality of your products?

Our strategy is that the fabrics we produce can be used for many years with the quality of the first day, in contrast to the disposable trend, but at the same time, they are produced with environmentally friendly methods.

We care every detail from the use of responsible and qualified raw materials to the safest production methods at every step.  We believe in to produce qualified and added value products to be able to protect our future.

With this philosophy, we adopt the principle of quality-oriented, not price-oriented. Persuasion and quality are always with you when you can explain the way of doing your business, your faith  to your customers or to the participants of the sector that makes up the chain, with all clarity and honesty.

您们的生产在可持续发展方面的特殊性是什么?

 

可持续发展是一种文化,而不仅仅是一个概念、产品或标签。用整体的方法来创造一个可持续发展的观点是非常重要的。我们有自己的团队,专门负责公司的可持续发展活动。

在选择原材料时,我们注意可持续发展的标准,并确保我们使用的原材料的可追溯性,如OCS、GRS、RCS、FSC等证书。在过去的3年的时间里,我们几乎100%的产品都是使用最可持续的原材料制成的。

对于新机器的投资,除了机器的技术特性和投资成本外,我们还考虑到它对可持续生产的指标。我们的面料生产中所使用的化学品对环境的影响每月都会通过ZDHC的检查报告进行检查,并达到100%的合规性。

在缩短工艺流程、用更低的温度进行染色、使用更环保的化学品和使用更低的能源进行工艺开发方面也有多项研究。我们也对更环保的染色工艺进行研究和开发。生产标准通过Oekotex Standard 100证书以确保我们的印花或染色织物的产品安全和可持续性。

我们是HIGG设施社会与劳工模块(FSLM)和HIGG设施环境模块(FEM),SEDEX(第四支柱)的成员。我们通过这些平台与利益相关者分享我们的透明度、年度改进计划及其结果。

 

您们是如何使用竹纤维的?

 

我们在梭织面料中使用再生竹纤维,同时使用竹纱和竹丝。对于所有类型的粘胶织物,我们都提供对环境更友好竹纤维系列做为替代选择。因为竹纤维抗菌的特性,提供对皮肤兼容性更高的产品。

 

您如何看待竹纤维?

 

与普通粘胶相比,竹子是更加持续的可再生纤维的资源。因为原材料竹子只需要3年的种植时间就可以生产纤维。但用榉树生产的普通粘胶,则需要3年以上的时间。它在生长过程中不需要任何杀虫剂,因为它有天然的抗菌特性。它需要的水比棉花少,而且还是可生物降解的。我们使用的竹子符合FSC标准,以保证竹纤维生产的透明度和可追溯性。

 

现在服装设计师需要这种竹纤维吗?

 

人类对保护自然和保证可持续发展的意识越来越强。近年来,终端消费者的意识也在提高。Z时代人的好奇心和质疑态度,以及他们有意识的消费倾向,推动了品牌和制造商在几乎所有领域探索更负责任和更公平的产品。由

于我们对自然和环境的责任,以及消费者的自觉意识和行为,我们都不能再对可持续的解决方案视而不见。通过为我们系列配备完全可持续和环保的产品,这个产业链得到了完美的补充,品牌找到了他们梦寐以求的环保产品。

 

您们如何保证产品的质量?

 

我们的策略是基于这样一个事实,即我们生产的面料可以保证耐久性,即使数年使用,但如最初的质量,并且它们是用环保的方法生产的。 我们关心每一个细节,从使用负责任和合格的原材料到每一个步骤最安全的生产方法。

我们相信,生产合格和有附加值的产品,这才能够保护我们的未来发展。本着这一理念,我们采取以质量为导向的原则,而不是以价格为导向。当你能向你的客户或构成产业链的参与者,清晰而诚实地解释你的经营方式、你的信念时,说服力和质量便总是与你同在。
