When you buy a garment from Boob, you buy a product that has been produced with care. Some of this you can see and feel for yourself, when you wear our clothes; the high quality is there at every stage, including design, function and choice of materials. What may be less obvious is the care we show for everything involved in the production; the people and the environment.
DESIGN TO BE WORN, WASHED AND LOVED
For us sustainable thinking starts at the design stage. Our first step is to create garments with a purpose. Then we make choices throughout the design and production process to minimize our impact on the environment. Most of all, we make clothes that are designed to be worn, washed and loved – over and over again.
MATERIALS THAT MAKE SENSE
Our entire collection is made of sustainable materials that are all traceable from fibre to final garment. Read more about our sustainable materials here.
Our production takes place in Portugal, Turkey, Italy, Greece, India and Morocco. We place high demands on our suppliers when it comes to environmental and social responsibility and we only work with factories that respect our Code of Conduct. We strive to build long-lasting relationships with producers that share our basic values about human rights and caring for the environment.

BOOB IS A GOTS-CERTIFIED COMPANY
GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) is an international standard with a holistic approach to the environment and the assurance of social responsibility throughout the production chain, including full traceability and high demands on manufacturers.
CLOTHES YOU CAN WEAR AGAINST YOUR SKIN
For us, it is important to be able to ensure that our products do not contain any harmful chemicals. That’s why our first choice is materials that are certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, which means that they have been tested for hazardous and illegal substances. A guarantee our clothes can be worn safely against your skin.
The EU's legislation on chemical substances is called REACH. We require that all our suppliers adhere to it and we monitor this by performing regular random tests.
RESEARCH FOR THE FUTURE
We would rather be part of the solution than the problem in the textile industry of the future. Therefore, we are currently participating in two research projects. The purpose of these projects is to deliver knowledge and find new, more environmentally optimal solutions for the fashion industry.
