We know our customers like to know exactly what they're buying; we're not going to sugar coat it, but we are going to explain it. We've divided up all of the sustainable features we've identified across our product ranges and grouped them into three so you know how your purchase is making an impact: Think Nature, Think Welfare, Think People.
The Buff Original Buff has the following sustainability attributes...
The OEKO-TEX label covers several standards though the relevant ones to Tiso ranged products are: Standard 100, Leather Standard and Made in Green. The aim of OEKO-TEX standards is to guide consumers towards making sustainable purchasing decisions by considering every element of the product, not just the main fabric. So, this includes buttons, zips and threads etc. Standard 100 and Leather Standard certifies that textiles and leather products have been tested for harmful substances. Made in Green uses the same standards as Standard 100 or Leather Standard, but also ensures the produce has been manufactured in sustainable working conditions.

By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill.
If a recycled fabric is third party certified, such as by REPREVE, the fabric is high quality and you can be safe in the knowledge you’re buying into a sustainable system. REPREVE specifically turns plastic bottles into performance fabrics that still have wicking, water repellency and adaptive warming and cooling properties. Find out more about REPREVE.
