Brand sustainability

Sekan products are produced in Portugal at a family-owned factory based in Braga. The factory has documentation of their fair working conditions. 

 

Materials

From the start, Sekan Studio has chosen to commit to using 100% organic cotton. By maintaining the health of our soil, it contributes to an improved ecosystem assisted by farmers using natural farming processes. Organic cotton provides a better life for the people who grow it - and the people who sleep in it. Besides that, organic cotton uses 90% less water and involves no toxic chemicals.

 

All Sekan products are GOTS and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified.

 

GOTS

All Sekan products are organically certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). GOTS is the leading and best certification for ecologically and socially responsible practices that cover all processes in the supply chain. This is your guarantee that the product is both completely organic - from harvest to finished product. And at the same time that it is ethically responsible produced under proper working conditions for those who produce the textiles - such as ventilation, breaks, collective agreements, no use of harmful chemicals, minimum wage, etc.

 

 

OEKO-TEX Standard 100

All Sekan products carry the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification. This certification ensures that every little component, including thread and buttons, is tested for harmful substances, and that the products are also harmless to your health and well-being. There are many different criteria, all of which are tested by independent partner institutes. In the test, they take into account several regulated and unregulated substances that can be harmful to human health. New requirements are constantly being added and the criteria are being tested on an ongoing basis. They are constantly working to create the purest product.

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.
