Made in Europe
Products with this certification are solely Made in Europe. The total distance travelled as a garment is greatly reduced compared to production in countries further away. This minimises the carbon footprint to minimise our impact on the planet
Fabrics that are given a Low Impact status, are those in which the fibres have low water consumption, low green house gas emissions and a smaller environmental footprint overall. It is to be used as a guide to making greener choices
Low Water Use
Water is a precious natural resource. We use tools provided by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition to work out how much water is consumed by each of our garments throughout its journey in the supply chain. The Low Water Use credential is granted to products which consume fewer than 10 cubic metres of water per kg of fabric produced.
Recycled materials have been used in the production of the fabric. The recycled materials used are either Pre-consumer or Post-consumer. Pre-consumer recycling is the reclamation of waste materials that were created during the process of manufacturing or delivering goods prior to their delivery to a consumer. Post-consumer refers to a finished material that would normally be disposed of as solid waste due to it having reached its intended end-use and completed its life cycle as a consumer item
Garments that are ethically made have come from factories that have signed our code of conduct ensuring the highest ethical standards are met. These include living wages, safe conditions, regulated working hours and strictly no child labour
Garments which do not contain any animal derived material and weren’t produced involving any animals
We use tools provided by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition to calculate how much Carbon is emitted from each of our garments throughout its journey through the supply chain. The Low Carbon credential is granted to products that release fewer than 10kg CO2 per kg of fabric produced
This garment is made in Portugal from a ponte fabric especially developed for us with LENZING™ ECOVERO™, recycled polyamide and elastane. It uses less water and energy than similar materials.
Ponte is a double-knit, meaning it is made of two layers of material knitted together with 2 sets of needles. Ponte is a stable and firm knit that doesn’t cling too much and holds the shape of the garment really well. This contributes to garments lasting a long time, something we really value here at Baukjen.
Your new piece wears and washes brilliantly, so you can enjoy it for years!
