Sustainable Stories  V&C The Fashion Retail Agency

Did you know that typically 70 litres of water consumption is used to wash ONE denim garment? Sartex has reduced this to a remarkable 5 litres of water per garment, and in addition have invested in a new water treatment plant where 70% of the water is recycled back into the factory - and 30% is clean enough to enter the national water system.

Their growing international client base include Seven for all Mankind, Replay, Boss, Diesel, Polo Ralph Lauren plus many others, while UK retailers and brands such as Crew Clothing, Whistles, John Lewis Partnership, Boden and Joules initiated interest in moving their denim production to Sartex for their sustainable commitment.

The event showcased innovative denim developments from world-wide mills across sustainable, organic, recycled and dry indigo fabrics, and V&C continue to pledge its commitment to sustainability. If you wish to receive updates on forthcoming V&C events please get in contact with [email protected].
