FACTORIES

OUR COLLABORATORS ARE 250KM AWAY FROM OUR OFFICES IN A CORUÑA

We only work with certified factories that share our values and seek to reduce the impact of their activity. These factories must be safe environments where fair and dignified working conditions are met and where workers are adequately paid for their work.

One of the big problems of the textile industry is the amount of suppliers needed to make a garment: cultivation fields, yarn manufacturing, fabric, laundry, cutting and sewing... Our solution to this is to concentrate all these suppliers (except the cultivation field) in a radius of 10km, in this way we can control 100% of the processes involved in the manufacture of our garments. This factory is located only 90 km from our warehouses and 250 km from our offices.

Human rights atrocities have been committed in this industry, NWHR will not contribute to this. With our factory's SMETA certification, we ensure that workers are working in a safe environment and in return for fair compensation.

In washing and dyeing, we use water and a series of dyes that generate waste that must be treated. The laundry has a water treatment plant that reuses almost all of the water used in the washing and treatment of fabrics, thus creating a closed circle of consumption and preventing it from being discharged directly into the environment.

In this process we reduce by 72% the water consumed by an organic cotton garment and we save energy and time thanks to the fact that we use the heat of the flushing water to heat the incoming water.

This is where we produce our socks in organic cotton, a task that Manuel Martinez, founder of the workshop, does to perfection. Third generation of professionals dedicated to the manufacture of socks, they develop pieces with very high quality yarns of Italian origin.

Proximity production is fundamental for us, not only to reduce the emissions derived from transport, but also to control that the processes and the people involved in them are the right ones.
