At Evamoso, we believe that sustainably sourced clothing should be a given, not a speciality. We believe you shouldn’t have to look hard to buy comfortable, stylish, everyday clothes, created with their footprint in mind. To put it simply, we want to make sustainably sourced clothing the new norm.
Evamoso clothing is designed for every side of you - not just working out. Simple, beautifully-fitting separates made from natural and recycled fabrics in wearable shades, they are created to work in harmony with every aspect of your life.What makes Evamoso sustainable? The use of technical but tactile fabrics, such as recycled polyester and moso bamboo yarns, throughout the entire collection.
What we mean when we say we are being sustainable and ethical.
Now, let's be honest. We have seen a great deal more focus on sustainability in fashion which is fantastic. However, with that also comes some greenwashing of the terms sustainability and ethics in fashion; we want to be straight with you and explain what WE mean when we talk about sustainability in our range.
For us, we abide by the following:
To maintain and fully respect the definition of sustainable clothing throughout the ethos of Evamoso. Brundtland Commission articulated what has now become a widely-accepted definition of sustainability: “to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Sustainable clothing refers to fabrics derived from eco-friendly resources, such as sustainably grown fibre crops or recycled materials.
Along with this, we will also maintain and respect the definition of ethically produced clothing throughout the values of Evamoso. ‘Ethical fashion represents an approach to the design, sourcing and manufacture of clothing which maximises benefits to people and communities while minimising impact on the environment.’ (EFF Ethical Fashion Forum, 2017)
“If you describe something as ethical, you mean that it is morally right or morally acceptable.’ (Collins English Dictionary)
How is Evamoso doing their bit?
We have laid out 3 ground principles of what makes us a sustainably sourced and ethically minded brand:
Fabric Supplier: We have chosen an Italian supplier who has decided to offer high end recycled fabrics made from ECONYL® yarn, a 100% regenerated nylon yarn derived from pre and post industrial waste such as discarded fishing nets, carpet fluff (the top part of Nylon carpets which have got to the end of their useful life), tulle etc.: all such materials, once they have reached the end of their useful life, instead of being disposed of in the landfill, are recovered and regenerated...well into our leggings.
Labour standards for manufacturing: Our manufacturer is based in Portugal which adheres to the labour standards as stated by the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code (relating to working hours, living wage, child labour, forced labour, discrimination, harassment, health & safety – as referenced in national and international law.
We use OEKO-Tex certified dyes for our fabric thus limiting the amount of chemical processing during the dying phase.
Yes, we know we are a fashion brand and thus producing more goods into the industry. However, we want our customers to see that it is alright to buy new clothing, but if you can choose to buy more recycled clothing, don't discard so often, make it last, re-use with different outfits, don't wash them too often and lastly choose slow over fast fashion when you can.
