CHOICES BEHIND THE FABRICS AND MATERIALS THAT WE USE
Choices behind the materials that we use.
Two aspects play a leading role in the choice of the fabrics and materials we use. Namely that they should be sustainable recycled fabrics or materials as much as possible and that they are of high-quality. This enables us to make durable cycling clothing that lasts a long time.
Another criteria is that we only want to use European suppliers who produce in a sustainable way. Our preference is mainly for Italian suppliers. The reason behind this is twofold. They make very good fabrics and our production facilities are also located in Italy. This gives us a quick win on limiting our CO2 emissions. We eliminate unnecessary transport kilometres and the heavily polluting long-distance transport that you automatically have when - like many well-known brands - you produce in China. Read more about our sustainable choices under ABOUT BRAVOURE (Vision, Mission & Values | Story behind the Brand | Slow Fashion) and SUSTAINABILITY (Packaging & Shipping | Maintenance & Cleaning).
Below you will find an overview of the suppliers we use for our Rouleur collection. Under the heading "specifications" on the product page of each individual garment you can find which fabrics and/or materials we use from which supplier, along with the possible composition and/or certification.
