Step 1

Product Design

Your fashion journey begins here. During the product design phase, this is where designers envision how the garments and accessories will look and feel to the touch. 

Step 2

Material Production

The clothes we wear are either made of natural fibres like cotton, linen and wool or man-made fibres like polyester, acrylic or viscose. In order to produce fibres, we need resources from nature.

Step 3

Garment Production

Our clothes are made during a sequential process which includes fabric development, dyeing, pattern making, sampling, cutting, and manufacturing. Manufacturers essentially take raw materials and turn them into finished products.

Step 4

Packaging

Now that your clothes have been sewn, inspected and approved, they are ready to be packed. Did you know that garments are packaged multiple times before they reach you? Then, consider the yarns, trims, and other elements that are needed in garment production – they are delivered to the manufacturer in separate packaging as well.

Step 5

Transportation

The fashion supply chain works in a global context, thus requiring transportation at different stages: Transportation of the fabric from the mill to the sewing factory; the finished garments from the sewing factory to the distribution centre; and finally, the finished garment to the retail stores, or directly to you when ordered online.

Step 6

Consumer Use

After a long journey, the garments you have consciously bought have finally reached your wardrobe. Continue learning about all the ways you can be a responsible consumer, extend the life of your clothes, and reduce your environmental footprint.

Sign the pledge as an indication of your desire to be an agent of change.
