OUR JOURNEY TO SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainability is not a simple term - it’s a mindset, a culture, a lifestyle, and one that is accessible to all, that’s the best part. Small things by all are greater than one person’s individual fight which is why sustainability runs through the full DNA of Oramai.
We track the environmental footprint of our products in terms of water, CO2 and waste. It’s important for us to keep reducing this footprint, so we invest in low impact alternatives in all stages of manufacturing like eco fabrics, LED lighting, renewable energy and 100% recycled packaging.
Linen scores very highly on ecological factors. Flax is a natural product that does not require irrigation during growth, and needs little or no chemical treatment. The flax for this collection is grown in an entirely in Belgium. All parts of the plant are used, so there is no waste. Linen fabric is 100% biodegradable and recyclable.
The environmental impact of spinning and weaving flax is virtually zero. Spinning, weaving and finishing of the linen is done using the most ecological and socially responsible methods, as confirmed by the GOTS certification that covers the entire production process.
Oramai is entirely produced in a local studio in north London. We want to support local production and craftsmanship for a sustainable future. Also by producing local we reduce the CO2 that comes with producing overseas.
We are a part of Fashion Revolution and work together towards radically changing the way our clothes are sourced, produced and consumed, so that our clothing is made in a safe, clean and fair way. #whomademyclothes
