FairWear Foundation Assessed Factory. Sustainable Fabric.
A regular cut, lightweight dress with scoop neck.
Made from Lyocell by TENCEL™ a more sustainable fabric made from wood pulp. The Lyocell fibres are produced from natural forests and sustainably managed plantations. It is made using a closed loop production process, meaning that water is recycled and solvent reused to have minimal environmental impact. Compared to conventional or generic fibre this fabric uses 40% less water, 36% less energy and 60% less CO2.
This garment was made in Bravo Tekstil, Istanbul, Turkey. The factory provides free meals and transportation for employees. It is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard and has been assessed by the FairWear Foundation. ARMEDANGELS have been working with Bravo Tekstil since 2012 and visit their factories a minimum of two times a year. These certifications, along with ARMEDANGELS personal visits, help to ensure good environmental practices and social standards.
We've been very impressed with the transparency which ArmedAngels talk about their supply chain. They are willing to acknowledge where they have space to improve as well as celebrating their successes. They are pioneers both environmentally and socially within the fashion industry.
ARMEDANGELS are implementing a pioneering open costing method with their factories to increase worker wages. Paying living wages - a wage high enough to cover a families basic needs, which is often higher than a countries minimum wage - is one of the areas that the vast majority of brands in the fashion industry are falling behind in. We're pleased to see that this is on ARMEDANGELS agenda and they are making steps towards it.
