Leaving a positive impact in the world through the fashion industry

The paradigm shift from a consumerist culture towards one that is aware of the impact that industries have on the planet is at our doorstep and we can be part of it!

Sustainability is one of the qualities that has gained the most interest when valuing a brand mainly because we, as a society, have begun to internalize its importance to guarantee responsible production.

Being sustainable requires a collective effort, and such efforts should be viewed as a collaboration rather than a competition.

The Sustainable Pattern is a corporate workshop that arises as an initiative to help any-size brand, creatives and entrepreneurs to enter the world of sustainable design and manufacturing from a didactic approach, based on the tripple bottom line: society, environment, and economics.

The Sustainable Pattern has a standard structure, but can be
complemented according to the company’s needs and sector. It aims at guiding the decision makers in each company through touching important aspects such as traceability, transparency, circular economy, low-impact materials, eco-innovation, life cycle assessment management, social fairness, certifications, EU regulations, and much more. Some of our key suppliers are mentioned throught the workshop.
