We are committed to sourcing certified fabrications wherever possible in our collections. This provides the authenticity we believe is important to ensure we are meeting the highest social and environmental standards relating to fibre procurement.
After a great deal of research, our preferred certification groups are below.
- Global recycled standard (GRS).
- Organic content standard (OCS).
- LENZING ™ ECOVERO ™.
- EUROPEAN FLAX ®.
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a voluntary product standard for tracing and verifying the content of recycled materials in final product. This standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content and labelling.
Our commitment to using accredited certification means the recycled material in a final product is verified, providing customers with purchasing confidence.
EUROPEAN FLAX ® certifies the exclusive origin of flax fibre from Western Europe: France, Belgium and the Netherlands. EUROPEAN FLAX ® fibre culture has low impacts on the environment: no irrigation, no GMO (genetic modifications), no waste. Our entire supply chain requires membership to EUROPEAN FLAX ® and must meet environmental and socially responsible manufacturing requirements.
LENZING ™ ECOVERO ™ branded viscose fibres are derived from renewable wood sources originating from sustainable forests. Using an eco-responsible production process, by meeting high environmental standards, contributes to a cleaner environment. Giving us greater transparency and traceability from fibre to final product. Glassons have membership to Lenzing
