Sustainability

Our mission is to make the world a more sustainable place, so we work daily to create a positive impact in what we believe in.

We are always looking for the best material options, without compromising the quality and durability of our clothing. Cotton that is certified by the GOTS (Global Organic Textiles Standard) is always our first choice of material. This means that there have been no toxic chemicals used at any point of the production cycle- and that employees are treated and paid fairly.

All our suppliers only use fabrics that are certified by the OEKO-TEX & REACH Certification Standard 100 (Certification of the European Commission).

We manufacture clothing in small amounts, and if an item doesn’t sell out, we recycle it into a new item. In every collection we assure that more and more recycled and organic fabrics are used.

Our team applies the 3 R’s of sustainability in every way possible.

In our office we always use recycled paper and always reuse paper as well. All or our archive folders are reused (we haven’t bought new ones for several years), and we recycle and reuse all our office packaging.

In our warehouse we reuse all our cardboard in a daily basis, and we encourage our suppliers to do the same.

We are committed to our sustainable ethics.

One of Bravian’s daily goals is to guarantee that not only is its ecological responsibility reflected in the conduct of its factories but, as well as in the 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 look at sustainability as a journey in constant progress. Every day we take one step forward towards this trip, through the constant search of more sustainable options in the manufacturing of our products.

We don’t overstock any products. We have a fast capacity in producing products that run out of stock (in-house manufacturing advantages) and this allows us to avoid waste created by unsold styles.

If overstock happens to occur, we first try to reuse the items and create new styles or, if this isn’t possible, we donate them to local associations.
