From cotton to linen, we choose fabrics that will stand the test of time due to their quality, performance and versatility. While we celebrate local raw fibre production, we’re also passionate about the future of material innovation.
Below, learn more about the materials we use at Sportscraft. Our efforts will evolve over time, and we will keep you updated with our journey.
RESPONSIBLE MATERIAL SOURCING POLICY
Sportscraft's Responsible Material Sourcing Policy outlines best practice for sourcing responsibly from global fibre and textile producers. We are committed not only to crafting beautiful, high-quality garments, but to ensuring that our products are created without excess harm to the ecosystems and communities that are part of our supply chain. Our Responsible Material Sourcing Policy is key to this commitment, and to our progress towards ethical practices and sustainable futures.
We're determined to keep reducing the impact of our materials, and to do so we have some great initiatives in the works.
