THEY BET on change, on fair, ethical and sustainable fashion. THEY LIMIT their CARBON FOOTPRINT and impact on the environment as much as possible, choosing with a lot of ‘clinical eye’ suppliers that produce their garments in the most responsible, humane, ethical, ecological and natural way possible.
One of the fundamental pillars of their brand is fair trade, they believe in equal rights to safe and dignified employment, well paid and without exploitation - mainly women and children - of any kind. They want to be part of the shift towards a more ethical fashion industry.
Their MISSION is to create urban, innovative and timeless designs, exclusive designs full of color, with personality and unbeatable quality.
They create small collections that, due to their quality, last a long time using garments with 100% natural and / or biodegradable fabrics. Their products are made with organic, ecological, recycled and biodegradable fabrics, taking care of the environment and respecting the skin of those who use their garments using soft and natural materials.
Their VISION is to create trends with CONSCIOUSNESS, with a clear goal of respect:
- Respect for the environment, the world in which they live.
- Respect for those who produce the garments in fair and dignified working conditions.
- Respect for people who decide to use their garments using 100% natural materials.
They were born from the need to create something different, garments with their own identity, to make each one tell its own story.
They want to be part of the #BeTheChange change
Make SENSE to your STYLE!
Free by ale chooses suppliers who share their ideology: Fair, Sustainable and Responsible Fashion.
Fair Wear Foundation
They have suppliers that are part of a foundation that advocates for change in the world of fashion and that seeks to promote and promote more ethical products, fairer fashion and make it the ‘new normal’. Their suppliers are part of the Fair Wear Foundation.
They have decided to take a step forward, not only to establish and strengthen a responsible production relationship but also to give their customers a product of unsurpassed quality, in addition to the commitment to offer fair, sustainable, original, unique and exclusive fashion, limiting to the minimum their impact on the environment.
THEIR GARMENTS CERTIFICATIONS:
Global Organic Textile Standard is the leading standard for organic textile certification worldwide.
The Global Recycled Standard label certifies that the materials used are recycled, in addition to ensuring compliance with social and environmental criteria and the working conditions of the people who work in the factories that are responsible for producing the products they use to sell.
OEKO – TEX
The OEKO-TEX Standard 100 standard certifies the absence of harmful chemical substances in all the products with which their garments are produced thanks to the «Confidence in textile» label.
The Organic Content Standard (OCS) applies to any non-food product that contains 95-100% organic matter. It verifies the presence and quantity of organic matter in a final product, and monitors the flow of raw materials from its origin to the final product.
Important: Their clothing is made with 100% vegan materials, this means that, to produce all their garments, no animal testing is carried out or commissioned on ingredients, formulations or finished products.
FIBERS THEY USE
Their products are produced only with ecological fibers: organic, biodegradable cotton and recycled polyester, caring for and respecting the skin, people and the environment.
-THE ECOLOGICAL COTTON
Organic cotton is a natural fiber that requires much less water consumption than conventional cotton. Its production does not require chemical products and favors the rotation of crops to maintain healthier, fertile and humid lands. As for the waste generated by cotton ginning, these are recycled for the animal feed industry.
-THE TENCEL® AND THE MODAL®
Tencel® and Modal® are biodegradable and made from eucalyptus or beech pulp. The eucalyptus is a tree that is characterized by its rapid growth and without irrigation. The Tencel manufacturing process received the "European Award for the Environment" from the European Union for its low emissions.
Their cellulosic fibers come exclusively from the Austrian manufacturer Lenzing, the first fiber producer to receive the EU Ecolabel for promoting environmental excellence.
The cutting of the different pieces that they use to make their products naturally generates cutting waste. Throwing them away would be unthinkable, and that is why they have a partner who collects and recycles them into new cotton yarn that they use to make their bags.
Recycled polyester is used to make jackets, windbreakers, and as a complement (in a proportion of 15%) to organic cotton for some of their sweatshirts. A windbreaker jacket allows you to recycle between 7 and 8 PET plastic bottles. And so that the contact of your skin with their sweatshirts is soft, they never come in direct contact with the polyester, which is sandwiched between two layers of organic cotton.
