Mos Mosh, Denmark

Mos Mosh work around four core values, Fairness, Responsibility, Lasting Quality & Sustainability.

Fairness: We work with some of the best people and have high demands towards the people we work with. Our factories underlie an ethical Code of Conduct, to ensure fair wages and working conditions for all involved in the production of our collections.

Responsibility: We choose materials that make sense to us, not just regarding look, feel and touch, but also in the long run. When selecting fabrics and fibers we source and use high quality materials, that are considered less impactful on our environment. By 2020 we are committed to sourcing 70% of our cotton as more sustainable cotton, which includes better cotton, organic cotton and recycled cotton. We cannot sit back and let others take the lead, instead we want to take action and initiative for a less impactful fashion future.

Lasting Quality: Mos Mosh want you to be able to wear your garments time and time again, and for you to keep the designs you love. They know how important some key items become in our wardrobe and part of our personality. Therefore, making products in long-lasting quality and immaculate craftsmanship are causes they hold dear. 

Sustainability: In 2018 they set a goal to produce 89% of their garments within Europe and made it happen! This way they are able to meet high quality standards and legislation within the field of sustainability and ethics in production, compared to conventional means. The shorter distances make it easier for them to work closely with their factories, reduce transportation resources and C02-footprint. “


Coster Copenhagen, Denmark

“CSR is important to Coster Copenhagen and the fact that the fashion industry is now the 2nd most polluting industry worldwide, make us pursue every opportunity to discover new methods throughout our value chain, in order to minimize our carbon footprint, becoming more eco-friendly – contributing to a greener, more sustainable and ethical sound industry. 


Seawool is produced from recycled plastic bottles derived from the oceans, grinded into powder with the help of oyster shells sourced from the food industry.

Finally added natural upcycled cotton fibers for maximum softness. Seawool not only leaves a minimized carbon footprint further, it provides a wide range of performance and comfort benefits. Including a soft woolen touch, insulating warmth and wrinkle resistance.

Seawool dries quickly and has anti-static properties as well as stops odor in a natural way. Seawool garments therefore stays fresh for longer, preventing unnecessary washing, all improving the lifespan of each garment. (1 kg of Seawool approximately reuses 60 plastic bottles) 


Recycled polyester

Primarily we prefer using natural fibers such as viscose, modal and cupro in our productions. Instead, if we choose to use polyester, we primarily use recycled polyester in its pure form as the most difficult degradable are the mixed products.

There are two types of recycled polyester: the one where customers deliver their clothes that are subsequently recycled, and then it is extracted from the residues that are left after clips from other productions. We mainly use recycled polyester that comes from the sports industry.

Technically, it is the case that the excess substance is melted and re-extracted into new fibers which can then be woven and become recycled polyester.

To be reused, it must be 100% polyester.


Hand knitted It is the case in many production countries, women have to travel far and leave their families and children to work on the production companies. We have initiated a project that goes beyond the large production factories. Instead, we have our knitwear produced directly in the rural villages in North China where the women live.

It gives these women a real opportunity to stay with their families and children while working and making money


QC control in India

Specifically, for our productions in India, we work with a quality control. QC is an independent external agency that constantly inspect and monitor the respective production sites.

They visit the production companies and check the actual production and working conditions. In addition, the company must provide food and sanitary conditions and safety rules must be observed in relation to the written down standards. QC does check-up 3-5 times per production. A production covers one style or print series.”


Summum Woman, The Netherlands

 “We are working hard on a responsible and sustainable supply chain. That is why we invest in long-term relationships with our business partners and our suppliers. We visit them regularly and have built a strong bond with them. We actively examine which possible risks there are within the chain and how the activities of our partners influence this. This is called due diligence management.

Furthermore, we engage in dialogue with our partners about issues such as working conditions and environmental impacts. Discussing and having our Code of Conduct and Animal Welfare Policy signed  is part of this. We identify any risks and work closely together to find a solution and make adjustments where necessary, with the aim of reducing the burden on people, animals and the environment. Based on these risk assessments, we make conscious choices for our purchasing and production.

Some examples:

– We have deliberately chosen to produce a large part of our collection in Eastern Europe. Due to the short distance, we can easily visit these workshops regularly. We exercise control ourselves and see with our own eyes under what conditions our products are produced. In addition, transport is by road instead of by air and water, which is less damaging to the environment.

– With our producer in Portugal, we are making our Luxury Basics collection more sustainable, while keeping the clothing affordable.”


Absolut Cashmere, France

“We strive day after day to affirm our commitment to the planet and make it a point of honor to perfect ourselves in each area. Quality is our priority . We are proud to say that we have our own cashmere production center in Inner Mongolia. Our production is therefore fully integrated: from the processing of the raw material to the beautiful sweater that will end up in your wardrobe, we work tirelessly and with passion.

Local breeders harvest the wool from our goats in the spring often between May and June. At this time of year, goats no longer need this envelope that protected them from the cold. The exceptional wool harvested is obtained using a comb which makes it possible to recover, in the most delicate way, the precious fiber offered by our goats. This technique allows our biquettes to get rid of this excess material more quickly because they would have naturally moulted for the warmer season.

Low-cost cashmere brands are accelerating desertification in Mongolia, with their massive herds and their methods of mass production, they are drying up rivers and impoverishing the soil. To counter this catastrophe, absolut cashmere undertakes to respect the total purity of the wool in a sustainable process. We use biodegradable detergents at each stage of fiber cleaning and favor fair trade. And since our organic pasture has been set up in Mongolia, we can also manage the consumption of our goats over time.”


By Ti-Mo, Norway

“For us it is important to respect the people involved in the supply chain, and to have the health of mother earth in mind when we produce and create new collections.

Long Lasting
We work with long lasting fabrications, shapes and trends. Pieces that are made to last, that can be washed over and over again. Clothes that are made to live in a girl’s wardrobe for years to come.

Did you know that viscose is made out of trees?

Deforestation is a major problem as a result of the fashion industry. Viscose is an important fabric for us at byTiMo, and almost all our dresses, tops and skirts are made out of 100% sustainable viscose. For every tree we take to make this viscose, we plant three more, making sure we don’t take more than we give back. Our viscose is 100% FSC Certified.

We recycle the water used when colouring and printing our fabrics, so we don’t pollute the rivers and drinking water where we produce.

Code of Conduct
We are proud to say that we work with a strict Code of Conduct towards all our suppliers and ateliers. This guarantees us that the workers are taken well care of, meaning given a proper wage, in safe working environments.”


One Hundred Stars, UK

“Our garments are made in India following the highest standards of ethical, environmental and health & safety policy. We are also committed to only using sea freight, rather than air freight to transport all our goods in order to reduce the carbon footprint of our products. In addition to this our directors carry out factory inspections at least once a year in person, alongside on the spot independent inspections and the standard governmental inspections to ensure a ‘triple check’ system is in place on all of our ethical promises overseas. 

As a small family run business having strong ethics behind our brand is vitally important to us. Whether it’s ensuring all our products are only ever printed using AZO free dyes, to using recycled packaging wherever possible, to paying all our staff in the UK and abroad above the standard living wage- we are always looking for new ways to improve, so we can deliver fashion with a conscience that our customers can be proud to wear.”
