This season at Remain we have focused on our yarns. We know that having a sustainable, traceable supply chain is so important and are committed to bringing this into our ranges to create a positive change within the fast-paced fashion industry. From designing all the way through to the finished product, our intention is to create timeless designs that last while also focusing on sustainability and transparency.
Responsible Wool Standard (RWS)
The RWS is a tool used to recognise the best practices of sheep farmers, addressing the welfare of the sheep and the land they graze on. All farms are required to be certified to ensure the sheep are treated with respect to their five freedoms of animal welfare as well as best practices in the management of the land. This ensures that the garments are traceable as they move through the supply chain.

Grown on approximately 500 American farms, the Supima Cotton makes up less than 1% of Cotton grown globally. What makes Supima unique to other cottons is the extra-long staple fibre that gives the properties of strength, softness, colour retention and resistance to pilling. Their partnership with Oritain using forensic science analysis ensures the product origin for full transparency.

Global Recycled Standard (GRS)
A certification created by The Textile Exchange with a shared goal to increase the use of recycled materials. A GRS certification ensures the verification of the recycled material as well as maintaining the supply chain from the recycler to the finished product and guaranteeing that responsible social, environmental and chemical practices are upheld throughout production.

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
GOTS is a textile processing standard for organic fibres, backed up by independent certification of the entire supply chain. The aim of the standard is to define requirements that ensure organic status of textiles from the harvesting of raw fibre, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to the labelling that provides a credible assurance.
