We’re committed to sourcing and selecting the right fabrics that will not only make the best products for you, but also limit our impact on the planet and our people. From responsibly sourced cotton to biodegradable wood pulps and hemp, discover more about what your FatFace clothes are made of and how we’re continuing to reinvent, reuse and reconsider. Read on below to find out why these raw materials are better than conventional alternatives.
Caring about Cotton
100% of the cotton for our cotton products is more responsibly sourced.
The production of organic cotton sustains the health of soils, ecosystems, and people by using natural processes rather than artificial inputs. We use the Organic Content Standard (OCS) which verifies organically grown material and tracks it from source to final product.
FatFace is certified by the Organic Content Standard ensuring our Organic cotton is produced to organic agricultural standards, which require practices to sustain ecosystems.
Wood you believe it?
We’re using more cellulose, plant and wood based fibers in our clothing that we can ensure are sourced from sustainably managed forests and with lower impact production processes.TENCEL™, LENZING™ and ECOVERO™ are trademarks of Lenzing AG.
LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose fibers are derived from sustainable wood and pulp, coming from certified and controlled sources.
This results in up to 50% lower emissions and water impact compared to generic viscose.
TENCEL™ Modal fibers are mainly manufactured from the renewable raw material beech wood, sourced from sustainable forests in Austria and neighbouring countries.
The fibers are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil, fresh water and marine conditions, thus they can fully revert back to nature.
The fibers naturally manage the transportation of moisture, enhancing fabrics by keeping your skin feeling pleasantly comfortable.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are derived from sustainable wood sources in sustainably managed forests.
Biodegradable and compostable under industrial, home, soil, fresh water and marine conditions, they can fully revert to nature.
The fibers absorb moisture more efficiently than cotton. This supports the body’s natural thermal regulating mechanism, keeping your skin feeling cool and dry throughout the day and night.
TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are naturally smooth to the touch and enhance the quality of fabrics to glide lightly over your skin, also creating a smooth drape, for a flattering appearance. To look good and feel good!
Doing Denim Differently
The same great quality FatFace denim, sourced responsibly
It’s time to do denim differently with jeans that are responsibly sourced and stylish - because why do good when you can do great?
100% of the cotton for our cotton products is responsibly sourced.*Measured using Environmental Impact Measurement reports.
Recycle & Reuse
Our recycled polyester pieces help to reduce CO2 emissions because they need less water and energy to create. Our recycled polyester is derived from post-consumer and pre-consumer waste, diverting plastic waste away from landfill and waterways and into styles you love to wear. Plastic bottles? Yes, and other waste we generate every day.
We use the Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) and Global Recycled Standard (GRS) to ensure we can verify recycled material and track it from the source to the final product. By 2025 we’re aiming to make all the polyester that we use to be from recycled sources.
Hemp is nature’s purifier and one of the most efficient crops for capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. For every tonne of hemp produced, 1.63 tonnes of carbon are removed from the atmosphere. It grows densely, therefore reducing the need for harsh herbicides and pesticides. It’s breathable, biodegradable and long lasting too.
Mix style and strength with our 100% natural linen and linen blend styles that are designed to last. Made with less water during production (and therefore less environmental impact), our linen may be breathable and light but it is also super strong and durable for many years to come.
European Flax Linen
European Flax® guarantees the traceability for premium flax fiber grown in Western Europe. A vegetal and sustainable fiber, cultivated without artificial irrigation* and GMO free. European Flax is super respectful to the environment, is produced in compliance with International Labour Organization rules, and is a 100% vegetal and vegan fiber. Why do we love it? Not only is it respectful to our planet, it’s so comfortable and great for regulating temperatures.*Except under exceptional circumstances today, tomorrow to be evaluated according to climate change.
Love of Leather
Why leather? Its long-lasting nature and ability to age in quality and beauty keeps this material in our collections. We’re committed to supporting responsible leather manufacturing across the globe and that is why we’re proud members of Leather Working Group (LWG).
