Here at WtR we are the Ambassador brand for Aster Textile and from SS20 we will introduce our "Thoughtful Fashion Motto" - commencing with a number of small capsule collections.
All materials that will be used in our collections will either be produced by us or with partners who source their components from eco-friendly resources, such as sustainably grown fibre or recycled materials. The entirety of the production process will be closely monitored. We are already working to - Oeko -Tex Standard 100, Eco Factory Standard, GOTS, ISO 9001, ISO 27001 and SA8000 certification standards.
In general, our certification standards focus on pesticide reduction, reduced water consumption and energy saving processes within the manufacturing environment.
GOTS (The Global Organic Textile Standard) is a leading organisation which we are utilizing as a positive example to follow. GOTS ensures that all textiles are organic from the beginning of the supply chain, throughout the whole process, up to when the product is purchased and delivered to the consumer.
We want to create our own sustainability programme focusing on additional areas of the fashion industry which we feel are essential to us as a brand.
