Garments from Esmé bring you both comfort and a clean conscious.

Sustainability, environmental as well as social, are key drivers for promoting only organic, recycled fibres and eco-friendly textiles.

Brand sustainability

Esmé Studios is not only about comfort for the body but also for the mind and soul. Their apparel is a conscious manifestation to create sustainable fashion that is socially responsible. All products are produced by certified factories, collections are made with organic sustainable materials, and partners are set on reducing water consumption.

 

Esmé Studios work exclusively with partners who live up to the highest standards and requirements with respect to working conditions. Their partners are BSCI, Fairtrade and GOTS certified. Suppliers and factories are visited with frequency to monitor the process from fabric to finished product. Lastly, the fabrics used in their products are pure and chemical-free.

 

When you add all these factors together you get a supply chain that is transparent and farmers and factory workers, who are happier and healthier. However, it is not only ethical production that is a cornerstone of Esmé Studios. The materials of their products and their innovative ambitions are also what makes them sustainable.

 

Esmé collections are mainly made with natural fibres that are biodegradable compared to common, more damaging, synthetic fibres. These natural fibres do not release dangerous chemicals into the atmosphere during decomposition and the process is much quicker than with synthetics.

 

Esmé Studios also keep their water consumption as low as possible with the use of organic cotton from India. The cotton is grown with rainwater in rainfed regions and partners are skilled at optimizing during the dry season to reserve rainwater. Farming partners also do not use any dangerous fertilizers, insecticides or pesticides.

 

Adding all these factors together make Esmé Studios a top brand for sustainable fashion.

Product Lifecycle

Design

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.

        Production

        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
