The production process used by Salvage creates clothing and accesories that are both sustainable and high quality. Plastic bottles that would otherwise be sent to the landfill, are recycled in to polyester. This polyester is combined with shredded organic cotton offcuts, and then weaved in to a yarn that can be knitted and woven in to a wide range of textile based products.
Salvage clothing is Global Recycle Standard and Organic Blended Content Standard Certified. This is great news for UK individuals and businesses that require custom clothing whilst staying true to their environmental and ethical policies.
Salvage clothing, supplied by Shirtworks, opens a new market in the UK, meaning businesses with ethical business practices and sustainable responsibilities, now have access to branded/custom clothing and accessories. With ever increasing importance being placed on social and environmental responsibility, and humanities long term effects on the globe, an increasing amount of UK businesses are turning to organic and fair trade products.
Shirtworks – Tackling the Issues of Cotton Production
Historically, cotton production has been associated with the unethical practices of child labour and deforestation;
Shirtworks strive to buck this trend. In a quote taken from their website: “[We supply] customisable clothing from a range of brands with ethical and sustainable production processes, with many of our suppliers adhering to Fair Trade Foundation, Fair Wear Foundation, Worldwide Responsible Apparel Production, and Oeko-Tex guidelines and requirements. We have achieved certification by the Soil Association as a supplier of organic clothing and products using decorated organic processes. This makes Shirtworks the only T-Shirt printer and embroiderer in Europe with Soil Association Accreditation”
