Eco & Ethics Spotlight - Barts

In our latest Eco and Ethics spotlight we look at one of our newest brands; Barts Accessories.

Balancing quality, comfort and sustainability is key when it comes to choosing Barts materials.
With those three keys kept in mind, Barts continuously aim to use more and more recycled materials to help reduce the pollution caused by waste. In Barts products, they make use of recycled materials with a certification, such as the Recycled Claim Standard (RCS), the Global Recycling Standard (GRS), or the Recycled Content Standard.

A part of their collection is made from Polylana®. The products made of Polylana® contain 60% recycled plastic from modified polyester pallets and rPET flakes, and 40% acryl. The benefits of Polylana® are saving water and energy, reducing waste, producing less CO2 emissions and it can be dyed at a low temperature. Their beanie made of Polylana® saves 5 liters of water and one scarf up to 15 liters.

Besides recycled materials, they are also exploring other sustainable materials at Barts.  They use a lot of man-made fibers like acryl and polyester in their products, but they are continuously looking for innovative, commercially viable and sustainable substitutions for those materials.

Barts know they can’t use only sustainable materials within one day because it’s a huge process. That is why they work long-term, with the ambition to use increasingly more sustainable materials. They want to gradually make their collection sustainable, without doing concession on quality, comfort and look.
