Did you know that each and every member of our brand family has a long history of leading the way and innovating positive changes in the apparel industry and beyond? Yep, that’s right. We’ve been revolutionizing the apparel industry from the start, and we have no plans of stopping any time soon. Here are some of the ways in which we are walking the walk and creating enormous positive impacts together:
(Nau Renewed Short Sleeve Tank)
In ten years, Nau has done a lot of heavy lifting in fabric innovation, including moving their entire down collection to recycled down, eliminating perfluorocarbons (PFCs) from their durable water repellent (DWR) treatments, and incorporating natural fibers like hemp, merino wool and certified organic cotton into highly technical performance fabrics.
(Organic Cotton Crew Neck T-shirt from Pearl Izumi)
Designing sustainable fabrics is challenging enough, but designing comfortable apparel that can keep you moving in any weather can be crazily complex. Pearl Izumi have developed countless innovations in performance apparel and are committed to crafting 90% of product line from recycled, renewable, or organic materials by 2022.
Cotton with a conscience
(prAna Renewed Rhia Skirt)
PrAna has used organic cottons in its apparel since the early 2000’s and is on track to use 100% organic cotton by the end of 2019. By eliminating the need for harmful chemicals in processing, requiring much less water to grow higher yields, and regenerating the soil it is grown in, organic cotton is perfect for ethically made clothing.
(Ramblers Way Renewed Wool Lounge Pant)
Happy sheep mean better wool. By going beyond responsible wool standards and ensuring the well-being of the sheep that provide the merino wool, Ramblers Way can make a better product for us and for the planet.
