Flax and Loom is the new venture of long time sustainable fashion designer Phil Wildbore. He’s now striving to produce ‘the world’s most sustainable, commercial jean’. They have a huge focus on increasing the sustainability of their supply chain.
Flax and Loom have established a partnership with a cotton grower (in Turkey). After this they work with a local manufacturer who weave the fabric, make and dye the finished garment. Distribution is also centred in Turkey, which means they have an extremely low carbon footprint. They have plans to create an even more sustainable supply chain by achieving an organic crop rotation for hemp, flax and cotton in a symbiotic programme.
However their most sustainable attribute is that what they make is built to last.
We've made it our mission to show you the full story and shine a light on brands we love. We’re bringing you this brand because we believe in its mission (supporting people, the planet, their purpose or all of the above).
Before we reach out to a brand, we always research them - using third party information to establish whether they’d be a good fit. However, many of the brands we work with are one man bands or small teams, which means sometimes, they just don’t have the capacity to complete our questionnaires or can’t legally give full supplier transparency.
We’ve made the decision to support and grow with these brands so that we can keep learning, understanding and pushing for more transparency. We choose conversation and challenge over exclusion - but we completely understand if you want to know more. If you would like to Know the Origin of this brand, why not give them a tweet?
