FairWear Foundation Assessed Factory. Organic Cotton.
A regular cut, turtle neck, knitted, organic cotton sweatshirt.
Organic cotton is better for the soil, the farmers and their families because of the damage that can be caused by fertilisers in conventional cotton production. Compared to conventional or generic fibre this organic cotton uses 91% less water, 61% less energy and 46% less CO2 to produced.
This garment was made in Bera Tekstil, Istanbul, Turkey. The factory has a free doctor available to employees as well as free meals and transportation. It is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard and has been assessed by the FairWear Foundation. ARMEDANGELS have been working with Bera Tekstil since 2015 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.
