Our Carbon Footprint & Water Usage

Although we are not able to give you exact numbers, we can assure you that our carbon footprint is much lower than regular fashion brand's emissions.

What produces carbon emissions in our supply chain:

  • Fiber Production

    Peruvian Organic Pima Cotton production and processing is what contributes the most to our footprint.

    Organic cotton produces 46% less CO2e than conventional cotton (Life Cycle Assessment), and according to the WWF, it takes 2,700 litres of water to produce the cotton needed for just one t-shirt, whereas organic cotton only uses 243 litres.
  • Textile Making

    Garment production in our Peruvian production studio requires electricity for the machines and light, and small amounts of water for textile dyes, finishing, and washing. 
  • Brand Management

    We do not own any offices or other facilities, except for our production studio. All of our Marketing team and Management work 100% from home.
