Description:

Stripes brings together understated pinstripes and broad, chunky stripes in eclectic colours or contrasting black and white. The two pinstripes - in vibrant acid brights or distinguished neutrals - emulate the fine hand stitching on a hand-made luxury Savile Row suit; Eton is a traditional college blazer stripe with an eccentric twist in kaleidoscopic colour; and the black and white of Monochrome is given added dimension and impact by a shadowing grey effect.

SOURCING

S4 Regional sourcing

Regional Sourcing

Summary: As supply chains stretch across the globe, their energy consumption stretches proportionally. This criterion evaluates the embodied energy of sourcing and underscores manufacturers with the most regional supply chains.(View Criteria)
  • Auditor Organization:Raw material purchase invoice
  • Audit type:Giga Reviewed
  • Audit No: Not Applicable
  • Audit Result: 40% of raw materials are regionally sourced.
  • Date Awarded: 2013-05-30
  • Valid Until: 2014-05-30
  • Documented By: GIGA

PRODUCTION

P6 Biodegradability

Biodegradability / Contamination

Summary: Global topsoil degradation is the least talked about (though massive) environmental problem we now face. This criterion recognizes manufacturers who help regenerate topsoil as a byproduct of production.(View Criteria)
  • Auditor Organization:Camira Wastes List
  • Audit type:Self Reported
  • Audit No: Not Applicable
  • Audit Result: 56% of raw materials, component materials, and solid byproducts are biodegradable.
  • Date Awarded: 2013-05-30
  • Valid Until: 2014-05-30
  • Documented By: GIGA
P9 Upcycling

Upcycling: Production Waste as Resource

Summary: We have made enough materials to produce new materials entirely from reclaimed material sources. This criterion creates leverage to eliminate waste by recognizing manufacturers who use pre-consumer waste to product materials.(View Criteria)
  • Auditor Organization:Camira Recycled Content List
  • Audit type:Self Reported
  • Audit No: Not Applicable
  • Audit Result: According to Camira Recycled Content List, the pre-consumer waste is 94.7%.
  • Date Awarded: 2013-05-30
  • Valid Until: 2014-05-30
  • Documented By: GIGA
P11 Ecology info loop

Ecology Information Loop

Summary: The impact of production cannot be improved if it isn't measured. This criterion recognizes manufacturers who document and communicate the environmental impact of their material production.(View Criteria)
  • Auditor Organization:BSI
  • Audit type:Third Party Audited
  • Audit No: EMS 35118
  • Audit Result: ISO 14001 is implemented, certification is achieved and submitted.
  • Date Awarded: 2013-05-12
  • Valid Until: 2017-03-02
  • Document Type: ISO 14001
  • Documented By: GIGA
P13 Radiation / EMF

Radiation / EMF

Summary: Radiation can mutate our bodies' cells, damaging their ability to operate normally, repair themselves, or can cause mass cell multiplication. This criterion prioritizes working environments that are free of or radiation and electromagnetic fields.(View Criteria)
  • Auditor Organization:Self report for Raw Material List
  • Audit type:Third Party Audited
  • Audit No: Not Applicable
  • Audit Result: No radiation is emitted from the materials or manufacturing processes used
  • Date Awarded: 2014-09-05
  • Valid Until: 2015-09-05
  • Documented By: GIGA
P14 Factory safety

Safety of Factory

Summary: The health and safety of factory workers is an important part of a material's life-cycle impact. This criterion considers the safety standards that are practices at factories.(View Criteria)
  • Auditor Organization:BSI
  • Audit type:Third Party Audited
  • Audit No: OHS 539494
  • Audit Result: Factory has achieved OHSAS 18001 Certification and results are reported.
  • Date Awarded: 2012-01-30
  • Valid Until: 2015-01-30
  • Document Type: OHSAS 18001
  • Documented By: GIGA
P23 Biotech. vs. Geotech

Biological Nutrient / Technical Nutrient

Summary: Raw materials come from one of two cycles: biological nutrients or technical nutrients. Waste occurs when these cycles are combined. Ideally, materials are purely made from either cycle. If these cycles are mixed, it is critical that they can also be disassembled.(View Criteria)
  • Auditor Organization:Camira Wastes List
  • Audit type:Third Party Audited
  • Audit No: Not Applicable
  • Audit Result: Material can be broken down into biological and technical nutrients
  • Date Awarded: 2014-09-05
  • Valid Until: 2015-09-05
  • Documented By: GIGA

USAGE

U10 Local market

Local Market

Summary: As supply chains stretch across the globe, their energy consumption stretches proportionally. This criterion prioritizes materials with regional supply chains.(View Criteria)
  • Auditor Organization:Camira annual distribution locations and distribution volumes
  • Audit type:Self Reported
  • Audit No: Not Applicable
  • Audit Result: Minimum 45% materials are sold locally (within 800 kilometer radius).
  • Date Awarded: 2013-05-30
  • Valid Until: 2013-05-30
  • Documented By: GIGA

RENEWAL

R4 Biodegradability

Soil: Biodegradability

Summary: Global topsoil degradation is the least talked about (though massive) environmental problem we now face. This criterion recognizes materials which can degrade into organic topsoil.(View Criteria)
  • Auditor Organization:West Yorkshire
  • Audit type:Third Party Audited
  • Audit No: 56766-11
  • Audit Result: After analysis the fabric was found to be 94.6% wool and 5.4% Nylon, over 90% are biodegradable.
  • Date Awarded: 2013-02-18
  • Valid Until: 2016-02-18
  • Documented By: GIGA
R7 Appropriate durability

Appropriate Durability

Summary: Durability coefficients are calculated for materials to determine the appropriateness of their lifespans.(View Criteria)
  • Auditor Organization:West Yorkshire
  • Audit type:Third Party Audited
  • Audit No: 56766-11
  • Audit Result: Stripes contains 94.6% wool and 5.4% Nylon, which needs 1 year and 500 years for regeneration. Stripes has 5 years guarantee, thus the appropriate durability is: (1/5)*94.6%+ (500/5)*5.4%= 5.59
  • Date Awarded: 2014-09-05
  • Valid Until: 2015-09-05
