IMPACT OF OUR PRODUCTS
We have never used exotic skins, angora down or feathers in our collections and for quality and longevity properties, we prefer materials like cotton, wool and ovis aries which means farm animals, sourced from our long-term eco-friendly suppliers.
I'M NOT HUNTED SO I WON'T HAUNT YOU! COMMON LEISURE DOES NOT USE ANY EXOTIC SKIN OR ENDANGERED ANIMALS.
We carefully consider aesthetics, functionality, quality and the impact of our product throughout its life cycle. In our collections we prefer to use materials like GOTS certified organic cotton, GOTS certified organic linen, TENCEL and Recycled polyester.
In an effort to reduce the fabric wastage we re-use the textiles from previous collections in further collection sampling and production.
CARE IN DETAILS
We choose to use raw materials like horns buttons and 100% cotton linings.
CARE FOR WATER
Garments produced with technologies that reduce water consumption in their production processes.
The processes for dyeing and washing garments consume a large quantity of water. By operating with closed circuits, we can reuse water or implement technologies such as ozone or cold pad batch to help us reduce water consumption during these processes.
CARE FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE TANNING PROCESS
Garments made using processes that reduce emissions and/or the use of chemical products in the production process. The use of technologies such as the consumption of renewable energies or of tanneries certified by the leather working group allows us to carry out the processes of washing, dyeing or tanning in a more sustainable way.
OUR SUPPLIERS & OUR OPERATIONS
Co-operate with transparent and responsible sourcing partners to promote fair working conditions in our supply chain.
We do our best to be a responsible employer while choosing responsible team members and partners that considers the ethical & environmental impact of our operational activities.
We are working to make our production chain more sustainable over time to this end, we create local workplaces in which workers, entrepreneurs, trade unions, governments and communities can cooperate and converse.
We work with production houses operating locally in Turkey and our suppliers are from Spain, Italy and again from turkey. Transparency is fundamental in our relationships with suppliers we know exactly where all the articles we sell are made, ensuring that our supply chain meets our rigorous sustainability requirements.
Our suppliers are obliged to declare all the facilities and processes they use to make each garment: from the facilities in which they cut, make/sew and finish/trim to their laundering, printing, dry-cleaning and spinning facilities and beyond – all of which are bound by our standards and monitoring schemes.
We keep our packaging to a minimum in order to reduce waste and recycle our packing where possible.
We are fully committed to supporting all our workers, and to working with our suppliers to minimize the impacts of covid-19.
We’re also working closely with suppliers to ensure they are following official guidance to protect the health of workers in factories during the pandemic.
At the same time, we are ensuring that all orders that are in production are completely paid according to the original payment schedule, making full payment even in the event that current circumstances mean that it’s not yet possible for the products to be shipped.
