Our path to sustainability

“It takes an eye for knowledge of design materials. Concern for the environment. The love for details, the respect for family and the courage to think differently.” 

We strongly presume that SMC fashion is giving each individual person the feeling of joy. To secure this pure feeling we strongly believe in long-lasting quality of fashion and becoming step by step a more sustainable business. 

Sustainability is a tremendously important point for us. Thus we want to take on responsibility for the people of the world and the planet itself. We are printing on demand, meaning we are only producing when ordered. Therefore we can reduce the waste of our production line. Moreover SMC is a partner and member of various organizations to certify the will to make visible and sustainable change.

  • Global Organic Textile Standard

    GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.

    Having one common standard means textile processors and manufacturers can export their fabrics and garments with one organic certification that is accepted in all major markets. This transparency also gives consumers the power to choose truly organic products sourced from green supply chains.
