Buy less, buy better
These new garments all continue the ethos of at the heart of the Buy Less Buy Better campaign, only using quality fabrics and garment make up that is manufactured to last. Within that, they aim to inspire people to improve the sustainability of clothing across its life cycle, which will also help to reduce the impact on the environment by adopting small conscious changes.
As part of Kustom Kit’s sustainability strategy for 2023, the team believe that in-depth garment care knowledge, as well as well-made, ethically sourced garments are the most important interventions that need to be made to slow down material flow and reduce overconsumption, while also addressing environmental changes.
Ethical and environmental responsibilities are taken very seriously. All factories are fully audited and all components in all garments hold Oeko-Tex certificates. Kustom Kit believes in responsible design and choose quality fabrics tested to British standards in order to produce garments that are made to last.
Steps are also taken as part of a duty to protect the workforce employed to manufacture garments. Kustom Kit works tirelessly with suppliers to ensure fair pay and working hours, safe and hygienic working conditions, regular employment and protection from discrimination.
There is a rigorous selection process for garment manufacturers ensuring only those that are totally committed to exceeding high ethical standards become appointed suppliers.
