FABRICS AND MATERIALS

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It’s a mantra we live by but if there’s something better you better use it. To this point we are continually reviewing the materials we use and the methods we employ to ensure we lessen the social and environmental impact. We’re introducing new fabrics and fills all the time.

Minimising soil contamination, air and water pollution and reducing our dependence on petroleum.

Recycled Polyester is commonly made from melting down post-consumer PET which is often found as plastic bottles. This is converted into recycled polyester requiring less energy to make and maintains the same properties as virgin polyester, meaning we don’t have to compromise on quality. This helps to divert plastic bottles from ending up in landfill, minimising soil contamination, air and water pollution and reducing our dependence on petroleum.

WHY DO WE STILL USE POLYESTER?

Washed at lower temperatures, doesn’t require dry-cleaning thus
minimising the impact of products on the environment.

Polyester is a beneficial fibre as it provides strength to fabrics allowing products to go the distance with less chance of ending up in landfill. We know that our customers invest in timeless, quality garments that last longer than one season. The easy-care properties of polyester means that polyester clothing can be washed at lower-temperatures and doesn’t require dry-cleaning minimising the impact of products on the environment.

Protects the future of the fibre as well as enhancing the livelihoods of communities.

Sustainable Cotton is the right choice for TOG24 as it addresses a lot of the social, agronomic (Agronomists work to develop methods that will improve the use of soil and increase the production of food and fiber crops) and environmental challenges that the cotton community faces.

As well as the environmental factors surrounding cotton production, the industry also suffers from limited education, problems with worker conditions and restrictions in women rights. Sustainable cotton secures a sustainable and transparent supply chain by providing farmers with training programs in agro-economic and organic farming methods and encourages women to be both agriculturally and socially active. This helps to address the necessary climate action and demonstrates a positive cultural shift which protects the future of the fibre as well as enhancing the livelihoods of communities.

AFTERCARE

The more you care, the less you need
The old saying of ‘if you look after it, it’ll look after you’ is a mantra we go by. If you properly look after your kit you’ll not need as much, In turn less waste and damage

Aftercare products have been proven to make outdoor clothing and footwear last longer and perform better, this saves you money and helps reduce your impact on the planet
