Introducing the ESSE XX program. Our fabric rating system:
'Standard, Better, Best'
This is the first season we are rating our fabrics. We have created this rating system as an internal learning tool to help us make better design decisions Edition after Edition.
Understanding and measuring our current impact is part of our B-Corp certification journey.
This fabric rating system is produced based on industry reports and expert advice in collaboration with sustainability consultancy Sonzai Studios.
As advocates for transparency, we will be externally publishing the rating system in 2022.
We acknowledge there can be no such thing as a ‘perfect’ in sustainability, or any sustainability rating system as the industry is constantly evolving.
Therefore this tool will be continually developed and edited as innovations, technologies and industry standards advance.
Our rating looks at what 50% or more of the composition of the fibres are, measuring the majority against the framework. Of course the aim is that 100% of the fibre is a responsible choice and sits within the ‘best’ category, but the 'best' choices are not often readily available. They might not yet be available, or more specific not viable for a smaller business.
**Insert more around the utopian state, Even the steps that we need to take to get there. etc etc
This framework helps you come on our journey. We hope it also helps you navigate this complex subject matter - across all your investments, so together we can make more informed decisions.
