Honest-Rosie is sustainable, because it ensures quality manufacturing to lengthen the life of the garment by only using eco-friendly fabrics and by not using short-term trends. The collection of Honest-Rosie can last multiple seasons, because of the quality and because the items are timeless and would still be fashionable in five or ten years.
We only use eco-friendly fabrics by using Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic fabrics. GOTS is a world leading processing standard, which defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire supply chain.
The coloring of the fabric is done by AZO free chemical dyes. In other cases, when using chemicals for coloring the clothing, the water gets polluted and ends up in the sewers and then in the rivers. This damages the environment and the fauna living in it, which makes fashion the number 2 polluter in the world. (Oil is number 1)
