False Ego's Product Transparency
Our garment creation begins with the crucial selection process of the finest raw materials.
The farms that grow our cotton adhere to ISO 9001 for Quality System, as well as various organic standards. Pairing that level of quality with Supima® growing standards contributes to the exceptional feel of our apparel.
Because our cotton is baled, barcoded, and tracked; tampering is next to impossible. Once our cotton has passed the final purity test, it is shipped and tracked with a pedigree document to ensure a purity and quality beyond comparison.
Having our SUPIMA® cotton grown in the San Joaquin Valley of California gives us total transparency into the farming process.
American labor laws are some of the most protective and regulated in comparison to the rest of the world and it gives us great pleasure to know we are contributing to job creation here in the United States.
We want our businesses to reflect who we are as people, so it is important that environmental integrity is involved at every intersection.
We use 100% certified organic materials. This means that soil fertility is maintained, toxic pesticides aren't used, and biologically diverse agriculture is grown.
The raw materials we use are grown within a global organic textile standards and certifications including Organic Exchange 100 Guidelines and ISO 14001 for Environmental Management System to name a few.
Our SUPIMA® cotton mill in India was the first international textile source to become SUPIMA® certified, and the quality of their work is second to none.
Our yarn is also OEKO Tex certified which is an organic standard for yarn quality and purity maintained by the mill.
Our mills adhere to something called SA 800 for Social Accountability Management System. This specialization is appreciated by brands and industry leaders for its approach to ensuring the highest quality of social compliance in their supply chains.
In addition, they are FLO (Fairtrade Labeling Organizations) which is a group who are dedicated to alleviating poverty afflicting the majority of the world's farmers and workers by setting and certifying the compliance of stringent, socially-conscious production standards.
Our mills also offer monthly full medical checkups and on-site psychologists that are available whenever an employment may need them.
