Garphyttan Original AB originates from a philosophy where care for both people and nature is prioritized. Our products are to be developed and produced in a way that has as little impact on the environment as possible and that preserves and values humanity as much as possible.
Humanity and nature
Our primary measures concern energy consumption, resource utilization in production processes, and compliance with laws and regulations. Our environmental efforts should be measurable.
Our clothing is designed to last, contributing to a circular system where they are not meant to be worn out and discarded. These are also clothes intended to inspire and promote increased outdoor activities, bringing together humans and nature, with the hope of raising awareness and fostering a closer connection to nature.
“OEKO-TEX® enables consumers and companies to make responsible decisions which protect our planet for future generations. The testing and certification process on which our standards are based guarantees maximum consumer safety.”
“Our strong code of conduct has 11 principles that support our members. These range from fair remuneration to no child labour, along with a step-by-step approach that enables companies to monitor, engage, get empowered and receive support to put sustainable trade at the heart of their business.”
“LETIS audits and certifies compliance with standards, protocols and quality systems, such as: Standards for Organic Production of Argentina, United States, European Union, Switzerland, Canada and Japan; Supermarkets Quality Standard GLOBALG.A.P.; international Standard for organic textiles, GOTS; and HACCP systems; among others."
“Small-scale farmers and workers are among the most marginalized by the global trade system. At Fairtrade, they are at the heart of everything we do. Unique among certification schemes, producers have an equal say in how Fairtrade is run and are included in all our decision-making.”
