Our production partners are small, family-owned businesses in Portugal. They bring longterm experience working with textiles and greatly value sustainable development of the industry. They are constantly workung on optimizing their processes, systems and products, all while never losing sight of their most important capital - the people.
TRANSPARENCY & CERTIFICATIONS
To us, transparency is a MUST. We're tracking our entire supply chain. An important tool to make sure our social and ecological requirements are met every step of the way, are certifications.
Certifications by authorized organizations such as OCS, GOTS or STeP by OekoTex are a base condition for equimus to start working with a new production partner. This means that all equimus products are solely developed and manufactured with certified textile factories.
The Organic Content Standard (OCS) enables us and our manufacturers to identify the exact amount of organic material in our products. This certification greatly increases transparency in our supply chain.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading standard for textile companies working with organically produced natural fibers. GOTS certified textile products have to consist of at least 70 % organically produced natural fibers.
STeP by OEKO-TEX® is a modular certification system for manufacturers. It is focused on implementing environmentally friendly production processes, worker safety as well as socially agreeable working conditions.
