BRINGING THE GOOD "TRASH" TO YOU
We are committed to using sustainable materials in all of our garments. That's why we choose our materials carefully to ensure they meet our high standards for environmental responsibility and quality.
Our Tencel Yarn is made from wood pulp using timber waste, making it a sustainable alternative to traditional fabrics. We also use Seaqual yarn, made from recycled ocean waste, and Newlife yarn, which is made from recycled plastic bottles. By using these materials, we ensure that no virgin polyester is used in any of our garments.
In addition to our sustainable fabrics, we also use recycled materials for our zips, buttons, and labels. Our suiting fabrics are made from high-quality virgin wool blended with recycled polyester yarns, while our lining fabrics are made from viscose created from timber waste.
All of our fabrics are woven in Italy and Bulgaria, and our knit fabrics are knitted and custom-dyed in Sweden. This attention to detail ensures that every garment we produce is of the highest quality, while also minimizing our impact on the environment.
By choosing THE LABORATOIRE., you can be confident that your purchase is a responsible choice for both you and the planet.
WHY THESE MATERIALS?
Polyester Yarn is produced to a high quality, entirely from recycled ocean plastic waste by Seaqual Initiative, a community that help clean our oceans and raise awareness about marine contamination.
Newlife is a yarn made entirely from recycled plastic bottles and produced in Italy. This yarn is produced mechanically instead of chemically and it is combined with wool to make durable suiting fabrics.
Manufacturing Tencel requires far less resources. While 1 Cotton T-shirt requires 2.000 litres of water, one made with Tencel requires only 100 to 200 litres. Also it requires less amount of dye to change its color compared to Cotton, it's a renewable raw material and reduces impacts in the environment.
HOW DOES THIS IMPACT POSITIVELY?
CUSTOMIZED TO BRAND IMAGE
At THE LABORATOIRE., we work closely with the brand's interior designer and/or designer of the establishment to ensure that our designs are in line with the brand's image. We take into consideration the architecture and interior design of the space to recommend shapes and patterns that are on-trend and respect the brand's guidelines.
Our creative input is coordinated throughout the entire development process, ensuring that the brand's image and values are reflected in the final product. By working closely with our clients, we create designs that are both functional and stylish, while also staying true to the brand's identity.
Whether you're looking to update your hospitality uniforms or create a new collection for your fashion brand, we have the expertise and creativity to make your vision a reality.
