Lets cut the crap about sustainable fashion not being sexy – and if not convinced – let’s say hi to Underprotection
Underprotection covers the entire supply chain from the actual fabric to the production in order to be as eco-friendly as possible. Each year they launch two collections for the conscious woman.
The materials being used in their collections vary from piece to piece:
Another element and a huge part of the core values at Underprotection includes the production. Supporting fair working conditions and with a close relationship to their factory, Underprotection makes sure that every step of the production chain is aligned with their values.
All styles are produced in New Delhi, India, in collaboration with the small factory Fashion Forte.
The factory is owned by a young visionary woman named Charita and Underprotection has worked with her since they established their brand back in 2010. Fashion Forte only produces for Underprotection and their collections which has created a unique relationship, where they together with Charita, can create sought-after products in an honest and transparent work environment.
In 2013 they obtained the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) young designer license. FWF is an independent, non-profit organization for garment workers, that help us keep track of their production in India and to fulfill the requirements.
The basis of the collaboration between FWF and Underprotection is the Code of Labour Practices. The core of this code is made up from eight labor standards derived from ILO Conventions and the UN’s Declaration on Human Rights.
In order to minimize their footprint as much as possible, Underprotection makes sure that their suppliers take social and environmental standards seriously. By sourcing mainly from India and China, and screening their suppliers, they minimize environmental impacts and ensure there’s no unfair or unsafe labor that goes into making the clothing.
Choosing consciously produced clothing is the new sexy and the only way forward!
