As a team, we are working hard to make a difference. We have acknowledged the issues in the industry, that’s why our promise to you is to adhere sustainable practices & use of sustainable materials in to our brand as we go.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Textile dyeing is the world's second-largest polluter of water since the water leftover from the dyeing process is often dumped into ditches, streams, or rivers. The dyeing process uses enough water to fill 2 million Olympic-sized swimming pools each year.
  • Organic cotton uses natural processes and fertilizers free from toxic chemicals or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Regular cotton is one of the most heavily polluting crops, using 16% of the world’s insecticides and 10% of the world’s pesticides. These nasties can harm the land, poison water, and endanger the people and wildlife that rely on these resources— this is why we have chosen to work with organic cotton.
  • About 2,000 different chemicals are used in textile processing — yet only 16 are approved by the Environmental Protection Agency.
  • According to the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, the fashion industry produces 20 percent of global wastewater.

SRI LANKA

Did you know that Sri Lanka has a rich history trading cotton with other countries, dating back over 3000 years! Plus Sri Lanka is 1 of the top 10 producers of organic cotton in the world! That is why we have chosen it as our sustainable country of origin. Our founder's ambition is to collaborate with a sustainable factory in Sri Lanka by 2026. 

We are dedicated to sustainability. We are Amos.
