Repose AMS x Sustainability
Ever since the very beginning in 2014, Repose AMS has felt hugely driven to contribute to a more sustainable and responsible fashion industry. First and foremost by designing our creations to be durable and meaningful, always. Besides the wondrous magic, (fast) fashion also has its flaws. It is the 2nd most polluting industry in the world. Textile production and consumption causes significant environmental, climate and social impacts by using resources like water, land, chemicals and landfills and we are part of this industry.For us, discovering new ways to reduce our CO2 footprint and manufacturing our clothes in a more responsible way is a continuous journey. We are working on being different, and trying to make a difference. Repose AMS always aims to create and produce something meaningful, something with a story. We firmly stand by this mission, as we are committed to reduce the ecological footprint of Repose AMS as much as possible.
How are we doing this, you may ask? We commit ourselves to using organic cotton as much as possible. At this moment, 72% of the cotton used in our main collections (SS21) is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified cotton. For our capsule of SS21 collection, 84% of the collection is made from organic cotton and produced ethically in Portugal.
All our materials are carefully considered and chosen for their uniqueness. quality and particularly for their sustainability.
All garments are designed with longevity in mind, our pieces are made to look great today and for many more years to come. In this way we ensure that we care for the inspiring and talented people we work with, for the animals we wish to keep healthy and happy, and for this beautiful earth that we are all mere visitors on.
R E L O V E D
There is already so much of everything in this world. At Repose AMS, we wanted to make sure that instead of making more of what we already have, we reuse it. So we came up with a plan and,
R E L O V E D sprung up like a spring.
In this concept, high quality garments are being utilised to the fullest. These unique items are hand-picked for their durability. On our journey towards a more sustainable fashion industry,
is our way of being part of the circular fashion movement right now, where we stand.
With R E L O V E D we immediately lower our CO2 footprint, thus becoming a part of a circular fashion movement. A big plus: we don’t have to stock these pieces of art in some dusty attic waiting for their second or third round! They deserve to be seen, worn, and loved again.
Better for the environment, the economy and for reducing the CO2 footprint.
