17 years manufacturing in Portugal, 280 kms away from our warehouses and offices, without animal suffering, using natural and recycled materials
BY PRODUCING IN EUROPE, WE CAN FIGHT FOR A FAIR AND SUSTAINABLE TEXTILE INDUSTRY.
By being close to the factories we are able to ensure, 100%, that all people passing through Vazva's manufacturing chain work in decent conditions and in line with European standards. The proximity allows us to better choose our suppliers and visit them regularly, guaranteeing a safe and regulated working environment.
From an ecological point of view, manufacturing in Europe is key for two main factors: it greatly reduces the C02 emissions generated mainly in the transport of goods and allows us to have quality control over the manufacturing processes, minimizing the environmental impact and favoring water savings thanks to the use of both organic materials and natural dyes.
TRACEABILITY + NON-SURPLUS
We manufacture in GUIMARAES, 280km away from our warehouses and offices, etc... To show that we don't just talk the talk but walk the walk, we work with different certifications to make our garments traceable. For us it is important to raise awareness about the value of a garment and to be more transparent and sustainable with each collection. The certifications have strict ecological standards to ensure that our garments are made with organic and recycled materials and without toxic chemicals.
WATER FOOTPRINT + CARBON OFFSETTING + NEUTRALIZATION
Because we need raw materials we need water to produce our fabrics, just like any other brand. What reduces the footprint is the quality and lifespan of our garments, that's why our clothes are made to be used for a long time, with an average life of 10 years.
