Fristads launches the first clothing collection in the world with an environmental product declaration (EPD), where we measure the total environmental impact of each garment — from choice of material to delivery of the finished garment. A collection for craftsman where the entire manufacturing chain is characterized by environmental awareness and innovation to minimize the footprint on the environment. The garments are made of recycled polyester, has a clean minimalistic design and is constructed with an advanced folding technique that reduces seems, surplus material and saves energy. All garments have an EPD report with information about the garment's total environmental impact. September 25 the collection was awarded with the international design prize Red Dot Award: Design Concept.
Fristads are the first company in the world to make an EPD on garments – a new standard for measuring the total environmental impact of the garment.
The colour is added to the raw material before it becomes yarn. An environmentally sustainable process for dyeing fabrics which reduces water consumption by 75%.
We reuse all surplus material from production. Surplus material are utilized on site and turned into “comfort pads” – a bonus product for elbows and knees.
