Organic Cotton. Certified Factory.
A extremely soft to touch velour sweatshirt, with a loose cut. Made with 85% organic cotton and 15% recycled polyester.
Organic cotton is better for the soil and for farmers and their families because of the damage that can be caused by fertilisers in conventional cotton production. Recycled polyester reduces the manufacture of new plastic.
This garment was made in Valerius, Barcelos, Portugal. The factory has GOTS, ÖkoTex100, OCS and GRS certifications. ArmedAngels also 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 living wage pilot project with the FairWear Foundation. We look forward to seeing the developments of this and hopefully this leading to them implementing a living wage throughout their supply chain.
