Our ethics & Sustainability

 

Sustainability!

We are always trying to Protect our Planet. How?

 

Making the world a more sustainable place is our cause, so we are always working daily to create a positive impact at what we believe..

We are always looking for the best material options without compromising the quality and durability of our clothes. Cotton certificated by GOTs (Global Organic Textiles Standard) is always our first choice. This means that no toxic chemicals have been used at any point in the production cycle – and that workers are treated and paid fairly.

All our supplier use only certificated fabrics by OEKO-TEX & REACH Certification Standard 100, (Certification of the European Commission).

We design clothes in small batches, and if something doesn´t sell out we recycle it into new items. In every collection we are using more and more recycled and organic fabrics.

Our team tries to apply the 3 R's of Sustainability in all we can.

In our office we use only recycled paper and always reuse paper, all our dossiers are reusable (we no longer buy new ones for many years), recycle and reuse all our office packaging.

This year, our main goal is to transform all our products packaging using only recyclable and organic product. We're almost there!!!

In our warehouse, we reuse cardboard boxes daily and encourage our suppliers to do the same when returning a product.

We are committed to our sustainable ethics.

Therefore, we work daily so that Bravian´s ecological responsibility is not only reflected in the environmental conduct of our factories, but also in the weighted selection of suppliers and materials. We seek to select the best material options that meet our environmental ideals, without compromising the quality and durability of our products.

We see sustainability as a journey into constant progress. Every day, we go one step further from this trip, through the constant search for more sustainable options for the production of our products.

We don’t stock a lot of products. We have a relatively fast capacity to produce more quantities when a product runs out of stock (in-house manufacturing advantages) and this allow us to reduce the waste of unsold styles.

If that happens for some reason, we first try to recycle those garments and to create new styles from them and lastly, we donate them to local associations.
