Without compromising quality or performance, we challenge ourselves to create that which is stylish from organic or recycled fabrics. The closer to home we can source and produce it, the better. This involves testing different blends of fibre to see what works and what doesn’t so that we can manufacture the most durable, comfortable and stylish garments with the lowest impact on the environment.
This means that our suppliers must not only adhere to strict ethical and sustainable standards, they must also work with us to continuously test and iterate so we can bring you the best possible solutions. Each item must look and feel amazing whilst maintaining our dedication to our core value of sustainability.
The lifespan of most clothes made today is constantly shortening, with the average number of times a garment is worn having decreased by 36% over the past 15 years. This has culminated in the volume of clothes we are throwing away doubling since the late 1990s. To make matters worse, we are increasingly relying on synthetic and chemically intensive materials to produce our clothes, which when thrown away leads to chemical bleaching of the soil and the inability of many synthetics to degrade. This throwaway fast fashion lifestyle is one of the main reasons why fashion has become so environmentally damaging.
As a result, Cariki produces items which are built for the everyday and are constructed to last. This requires us to use only the best quality fabrics and first class manufacturing techniques to ensure our clothes can be enjoyed for years to come.
