There has been an extremely positive shift within the fashion industry with regard to sustainability that encompasses a large number of areas from ethics to environment.
We believe that it’s a responsibility that we all share from the supply chain and retailers right through to the consumer. To embrace this shift, we aim to reduce our impact on the environment wherever possible. We start by designing high quality garments with an exceptional finish. Our clothes are built to last.
Carmel always aim to use more viable, sustainable fabric options and where possible we carefully source archive fabrics, use biodegradable material and recycled components. Beyond that, we’re constantly looking for more sustainable solutions in terms of the actual manufacturing of our garments and their transportation.
The hi-tech 3D software that we use to design our clothes means we can create digital sample garments. This saves cutting fabric unnecessarily. It also means we’re able to conduct online fit meetings, eliminating the need to send samples the long distances between our global customer’s offices. Again, reducing our footprint.
We believe in people and quality of life, so our garments are manufactured in ethical and compliant manufacturing facilities in Europe and the Far East that are controlled by 3rd party auditing bodies and our own technical, ethical and sustainability teams at source.
