Materials and Sourcing

Sustainability at Pamuuc begins with our choice of materials. We exclusively use 100% organic cotton, with some garments incorporating a blend of organic cotton and linen. Our materials are certified by globally recognized standards such as GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), OCS (Organic Content Standard), and OEKO-TEX, ensuring they are safe, sustainable, and ethically produced.

We source our organic cotton from the rich agricultural regions of Peru and Egypt, renowned for their high-quality cotton. This cotton is harvested with care to preserve the integrity of the fibers. Once harvested, the cotton is shipped to Barcelona, where the entire manufacturing process takes place locally in Mataró and Sabadell. This approach ensures the highest quality, supports local economies, and reduces our environmental footprint.

Ethical Production Process

Our production process is rooted in ethical practices and sustainability. We work with four trusted providers in Barcelona, each committed to upholding the highest standards of human resources and environmental stewardship. These partnerships are based on mutual respect and a shared commitment to sustainable best practices.

By keeping our production local, we significantly reduce the carbon footprint associated with transporting raw materials and finished products over long distances. This approach aligns with our philosophy of creating timeless, high-quality garments that do not compromise on ethical values.

Certifications and Standards

While Pamuuc itself does not hold specific certifications, all our materials and suppliers are certified. These certifications include:

  • GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard): Ensures that the cotton we use is organically grown and processed using environmentally and socially responsible methods.
  • OCS (Organic Content Standard): Verifies the organic content of our materials, providing transparency and traceability.
  • OEKO-TEX: Guarantees that our textiles are free from harmful substances, ensuring they are safe for both you and the environment.

These certifications held by our suppliers are a testament to our commitment to maintaining the highest standards in organic and sustainable textile production.

Sustainable Practices

In addition to our ethical production methods, we implement several sustainable practices to further reduce our environmental impact:

  • Carbon Offsetting: For every order placed, we offset the associated carbon emissions. We partner with Ecologi, an environmental organization dedicated to funding reforestation projects and other carbon reduction initiatives. Through this partnership, we plant trees and support projects that help mitigate climate change.
  • Eco-Friendly Packaging: Our packaging solutions are designed with sustainability in mind. We use fully recycled and recyclable materials, including recycled carton and kraft paper. This ensures that our packaging is not only protective but also environmentally responsible.
  • Local Production: By manufacturing all our products in Barcelona, we minimize the environmental impact associated with transportation and support local industries. This approach ensures that our products are produced under fair labor conditions and high environmental standards.

Transparency is a core value at Pamuuc. We are committed to providing full traceability of our products, from the cotton fields in Peru and Egypt to the final garment. Our customers can trust that every step of our supply chain meets our rigorous ethical and environmental standards.
