Sustainability

Design

The young generation’s curiosity on life is WAWA’s greatest inspiration source in designing sustainable products.

In WAWA, it is a fundamental choice to design long lasting products, both in terms of style and quality.

There is nothing called boyish or girlish in our creativity.

Based on a core value of creating essential garments, WAWA is committed to use modern and more sustainable production processes that recognize both its impact and responsibility to the environment, employees and the end user.

 

Materials

We know that our choice of materials has a significant social and environmental impact.

In WAWA we choose sustainable materials that both enables us to prolong the lifetime of our products and to support future recycling.

With “sustainable materials” we mean materials that are non-conventional and have lower impact on both nature and human health than conventional materials. 

More than 95% of our production is made of organic cotton, dyed and printed without using any health- or environmentally harmful chemicals.

PRODUCTION

We have decided to solely work with suppliers that supply GOTS-certified fabric, dyeing and printing processes. This certification standard demands rigid environmental criterias on the entire manufacturing process of products from the raw material to the final fabric.

GOTS – Global Organic Textile Standard
GOTS is recognized as the world’s leading processing standard for organic textiles and fibres, and includes strict regulations about chemical use, recycling and waste management on everything from farming, harvesting, production, processing, manufacturing to packaging. It guarantees 70-95% organic fibres inside the product, coming from organic cotton, organic wool, organic linen and others. The standard also requires compliance with social criterias regarding working environment, salary, working time and child labour, and is backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.

For a small company like WAWA with great values and ambitions of creating products with as low environmental impact as possible, GOTS certified suppliers is a good start. 

We hope that our choices of fabric and design result in long lasting products that can be worn again and again.
