SUSTAINABILITY

From the get-go our aim has been to do better. Better (much better) tailoring for women, but also better, more eco-friendly ways of working to save our planet. There is a long way to go, but we take our contribution to transforming the global fashion industry very seriously. FREY. will continue to make sustainable choices when and where we can – consciously striving to improve, for you and for our environment.

FABRICS/MATERIALS

We uphold high standards when it comes to the fabrics and materials we select for our collections. Materials need to be of the highest quality for comfort and durability, yet also sustainable. FREY. has discovered ways to work with the best quality materials, while adding minimum pressure on mother nature.

Deadstock

Our high-quality fabrics come from the most reputable Italian mills. These mills have millions of meters of unsold fabric refereed to as ‘deadstock’. We buy this deadstock to produce our garments. In this way we can work with the best quality fabrics without causing the pollution of a new production.

Natural Materials

We want our materials to be long-lasting yet eco-friendly. That is why we use natural materials only and stay away from any fibers that could outlive you and future generations. We use pure wool, cotton, silk, linen, and cashmere and often a combination of the materials together. Ultimately, we want our garments to look and feel their best on you, knowing you will shine your brightest when what’s inside is pure.

Re-purposing fabrics

Even though we work as efficiently as possible with small-scale productions, sometimes we have leftovers of a seasonal print. We can’t use an old print in a new collection so we re-purpose the fabric by overdying it so it can be used as lining in our jackets. We also use the leftover fabric in other parts of a new collection to reduce waste as much as possible.

Buttons

Instead of plastic buttons we use buttons regenerated from shells and nuts. Our mother of pearl shell buttons are made from the inner layers of oyster shells. While their colour is natural, they come in different shades, celebrating nature’s diversity. The nut buttons in our collections are called Corozo Buttons (also known as Tagua or Ivory nut). Naturally white, they can be dyed in many colours. These nut buttons are increasingly used in the fashion industry as they are much more eco-friendly than plastic buttons.

PACKAGING

Our online orders are shipped to customers all over the world. To make sure your order arrives in perfect condition but with the smallest carbon footprint possible, we use eco-conscious packaging solutions.

Polybags

For garment protection during transport, we use corn starch polybags instead of traditional petroleum-based plastic. Corn starch plastic has the same characteristics, but because it is made of renewable resources it is much more environmentally friendly as well as biodegradable.

Rollor box

When it comes to the actual delivery box, FREY. has fallen in love with the eco-friendly Rollor solution. With Rollor packaging every unboxing experience is neat and crease-free so you can start wearing your garment straight away!

PRODUCTION PARTNERS

We view our suppliers as partners. We frequently visit our partners and have established close personal relationships with the people who tailor our clothes. We choose to work exclusively with partners who share our values of paying living wages and providing safe working conditions. A perfectly finished FREY. garment is the result of a true joint effort that makes us and our partner equally proud.

SUPPLY CHAIN

Our supply chain is short and efficient, without middlemen. We are in direct communication with our production partners and order small quantities of our collection items at a time to prevent overstocking. We’d rather keep enough fabric in stock for a short-notice re-order than overproduce garments that end up in landfill.
