Set Yourself Apart
We are a simple business. We want to provide our customers with high quality sportswear with great attention to detail. We want to incorporate as much sustainability into our product ranges as possible. We want to minimise our negative environmental impact as much as possible. We want to ensure that those people involved in bringing our products to you are treated fairly.
Our supply chain are aligned to our high standards. We have worked tirelessly to form a supply chain able to consistently meet the levels we as a company demand.
We use high quality fabrics. When you feel our products you just know this is high-end and made to last. From a customer experience we want your purchase to have longevity and to look great. Poor quality means unhappy customers who will need premature replacements for their items. Replacements are bad for your pocket, bad for our reputation and also bad for the environment. To ensure quality levels are maintained we stipulate OKEO-TEX certification for our fabrics. This is an internationally recognised suite of standards aimed at safety and sustainability. We don’t take chances with our accessories either. For example all zips are provided by YKK of Japan, the best zip manufacturer in the world.
We are an organisation passionate about the environment. The textile and the fashion industry in general have been guilty of harming the environment. We ensure that our supply chain have the systems in place to minimise their negative environmental impact. We also need to ensure our supply chain operate ethically in terms of how they treat their workforce. For example, our manufacturers have achieved the Workplace Conditions Assessment certification. This independent assessment audits a company in areas such as wages & hours, health & safety and management systems to ensure they meet accepted worldwide industry standards and practices.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL MISSION
Every decision and choice we make will be assessed as to the impact it will have on the environment, this will always be the case. For example, we use Eco-lite™ fabric made using recycled plastic bottles (recycled polyethylene terephthalate). Not only is this fabric produced using a recycled source, the fibre construction means it has a super-soft feel too! We try to consider every detail. There’s little point in using recyclable mailing bags if the shipping document sleeves that are stuck on them are not recyclable too, we make sure it all can be put in the recycling bin.
These are just a few ways in which we run the organisation in an environmental and ethical way, however there is always room for improvement!
Our aim is to offer something different from most sportswear brands, it’s important that we ‘set ourselves apart’.
