What exactly is ‘The Better Way’ Campaign?

‘The Better Way’ Campaign is a public awareness campaign that aims to draw attention to environmental and social problems and solutions in textile sector.

The campaign is taking place via the Swiss crowdfunding platform ‘WeMakeIt’, to support the development and growth of community-based social enterprises that provide proactive solutions to problems in the textile industry.

Would you like more information about our supply chain partners? Here are some examples of where our materials come from:

Wood Fibre Fabric (Tencel): The fibres are extracted from wood at a factory in Austria called Lenzing, and the fabric is manufactured and finished using low impact dyes with a company called Tintex in Portugal.

Linen: Linen used in our Nallow natural pillow is CO2 neutral, and made in Belgium. The flax used as a raw material is grown in Belgium, and the fabric is manufactured by a company called Libeco.

Zippers: Zippers are manufactured in the south of Italy by ZIP Goffredo. They were the first zipper company in the world to sign the DETOX Greenpeace commitment to eliminate toxic chemicals from the fashion industry supply chain. They also work with a social integration project to employ people with disabilities.
