Cherry Blossom loves Amilita!
Our garments are produced in a factory just outside of New Dehli India. Our factory is GOTS and SEDEX Certified and work to the ETL Standard. So what does that mean?
GOTS- The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
SEDEX- Sedex is an innovative and effective supply chain management solution. Sedex is a not for profit membership organisation dedicated to driving improvements in ethical and responsible business practices in global supply chains.
ETL- A product bearing the ETL Listed Mark is determined to have met the minimum requirements of prescribed product safety standards. Moreover, the mark indicates that Liton's production site conforms to a range of compliance measures and is subject to periodic follow-up inspections to verify continued conformance.
The cloth in an Amilita garment will always be an environmentally friendly one. Fabrics that we work with are –
LENZING VISCOSE .
Lenzing Viscose fibers are produced from sustainably and responsibly sourced renewable raw wood pulp. The various chemical and waste products which result from the production process are recycled or sold. One example is xylose which is used as a sweetener by the food industry! As a result of their wood-based cellulose origin, they are naturally botanic, absorb moisture well and are pleasant on the skin
Tencel fibers are derived from sustainable wood sources – natural forests and sustainably managed plantations. Wood and pulp used by the Lenzing Group is harvested from certified and controlled sources.
Tencel fibers have gained a commendable reputation for their environmentally responsible closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low ecological impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles process water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%.
Organic Cotton production sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and the people producing it by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs. Importantly organic cotton farming does not allow the use of toxic chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Conventional cotton farming uses about 16% of the world’s insecticides and 7% of pesticides.
Organics cotton farming uses 71% less water in its production than conventional farming. Its is 80% rain-fed and the absence of chemicals also means water is cleaner and safer.
