Our webbings come from a small family owned company from Italy. They are typically made of a wool-cotton-nylon-polyester mix. They use recycled polyester from plastic bottles and yarn made in Italy.
There are no Certifications available at this time as it's a small company and they prefer to invest the money in the product and the people. We recycle all webbings into new straps.
All our metals come from our Italian supplier in northern Italy. We recycle all usable and non-usable metallic parts. All metallic parts which are no longer usable are collected and forwarded to a specialised recycling and disposal local company in N. Macedonia.
Our threads come from England and our supplier has sustainability and innovation as core values of their business. Certifications: GOTS, OEKO TEX 100, ZDHC, RSLs, BCI, Global Recycle Standard, Higg Index.
