While the AFTERGLOW active jacket concept was designed and prototyped in London, we will produce all the fabric and the jackets with our technologically state of the art, and eco-conscious factory partner nearby in Portugal, lowering our carbon footprint.
The Portuguese are the leading manufactures of sportswear and jersey goods in Europe, and we are very proud to partner with a manufacturer committed to sustainable practices. With decades of experience, a total production capacity of over 120,000 products per day, we are confident the factory can deliver a high quality product on time for this project.
The factory also have a large scale dedicated waste processing centre, which upcycles all of the pre and post production factory textile waste. This means any leftover cuttings, thread or waste from producing the AFTERGLOW jacket gets upcycled and reused back into new yarn for a total ZERO waste approach, closing the loop!
The factory also hold a wide range of sustainability focused certifications, including: OEKO-TEX, GOTS, Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), Organic Content Standard (OCS), Global Recycle Standard (GRS), ISO 9001 & ISO 14001.
