The collaboration with our production partners is trusting, loyal and characterized by long-term partnerships. Some of these relationships have existed for over 40 years. Fair conditions for workers and the sustainable use of resources are fundamental and self-evident for both sides. To ensure this is guaranteed, we mainly work with you BSCI certified companies. In constant personal exchange, we also regularly visit them on site.
MADE IN EUROPE
95% of our partners' production facilities are located in Europe - in Slovakia, North Macedonia and Ukraine. 50% of the cutting of the fabric parts has always been done in Germany.
SUN IS GOOD FOR US
Our company has always been concerned about conserving resources, so our company building has had a photovoltaic system since 2008. We use 2/3 of this energy production to supply energy to our building and we cover the rest with local green electricity.
A simple and effective measure to avoid packaging waste was the introduction of our reusable folding box system. In delivery traffic with the main producers and stacked as shelf storage, these are in constant circulation. By switching to our folding boxes, we can do without around 12,000 conventional boxes every year.
ON THE ROAD
Our models come to us in Fürth from our European production facilities not by plane, but rather over short transport routes overland. Our partners are continuously stocked through self-organized, regular tours. The trucks are always loaded, either with fabrics to the production facilities or with finished trousers back to us. This way we avoid unnecessary empty runs.
WE TAKE IT USED
Our shipping boxes to retailers and customers are made from 100% recycled paper. The polybags used are produced in a climate-neutral manner and contain 80% recycled material.
WHAT’S IN IT
When it comes to our materials, we pay attention to high-quality and long-lasting quality. Intensive research and development work goes into each of our collections so that we can soon offer even more sustainable materials.
