PRODUCT LIFECYCLE

Vildnis is working towards being as sustainable as they possible can, they have annual goals within Planet, People and Profits that you can see on their website and every year they post an annual report which states the progress they've made during that year. Can you be more transparent than that? We don't think so.

HOW IT'S MADE

Our products are made in relatively small factories in Portugal and India. At present we work with one factory in each location.Both factories are paying their workers a fair wage and adhere to strict ethical codes of conduct. 


The Portuguese factory is a member of The Ethical Trading Initiative and follows the Ethical Base Code. They are also in the process of becoming Sedex certified. 


The Indian factory is Sedex certified and recently passed another audit (April 2019). 


All prints are digitally printed to save water and prevent water pollution. All our new denim styles have been washed and finished using the G2 and Eflow technology from Jeanologia.

Labelling & Packaging


Our combined brand and size label is made from soft woven recycled polyester, and the tag attached to the garment is made from recycled paper and secured with an organic cotton string. The care label inside the garment is made of woven satin in conventional polyester (we are trying to source these in recycled polyester). 


Our products are wrapped in recycled tissue paper with our bespoke mangrove fever print and finished with a recycled paper sticker. Equally, the enclosed returns form is printed on recycled paper and the mailing bag is made from 100% recycled polythene.
