Only the best will do
All of our garments have the following qualities
All of our garments are made from 100% organic cotton. I know! I couldn’t believe it either. Continental Clothing (the manufacturer) is licensed by the Soil Association and the Control Union to supply certified organic products under the Global Organic Textile Standard. Continental Clothing also holds a licence to use the Soil Association Organic Standard logo on products that meet the organic standard criteria (like our garments!)
The inks used in the printing process are
water-based and 100% solvent free. Permaset Aqua inks do not contain ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFC’s and HCFC’s, aromatic hydrocarbons or any volatile solvents. They don’t contain lead or any heavy metals. In fact, Permaset Aqua inks do not contain any toxic chemicals at all! Not even white spirits like other water based inks on the market.
All of our garments are climate-neutral. Continental Clothing’s EarthPositive Apparel is manufactured with a 90% reduction in CO2. This is achieved through a combination of low-impact organic farming, efficiency in manufacturing and transportation and the use of renewable energy instead of the fossil fuel based grid electricity. In January 2008, Continental Clothing Co. became the first brand in the world to calculate the carbon footprint and place the Carbon Reduction Label on textile products.
The Fair Wear Foundation is an independent, non-profit organisation striving to improve working conditions in the textile industry. Continental Clothing has been a member of the Fair Wear Foundation for over a decade. The foundation verifies that member companies put in place a strict code of labour practices along their entire supply chain.
