Sustainability in Fashion: Cambio
Andrews is pleased to offer a wide selection of designers who are championing the global movement to reduce waste, energy, and natural resources in the production of their clothing. In this new series, we’ll be shining a light on several of these brands that are aiming to be sustainable within the production and creation of their designs. Today, we’re taking a deep-dive into one of our most popular brands, Cambio. We’ll be sharing the different ways they’re striving for a better pant for you and our environment.
Cambio is a family-run company that has been designing high quality collections since 1987. With a focus on what is trending in the world of fashion and being socially responsible with their creation processes, they aim to create jeans and pants you love to wear while thinking about their impact on the world. All Cambio pieces showcase excellent fits, meticulous tailoring and first class, carefully selected materials. Using newly developed technologies, Cambio strives to reduce the consumption of water, energy and harmful chemicals.
The Global Organic Textile Standard
Cambio is a proudly certified Global Organic Textile Standard company. But what does that mean? Quite simply, GOTS is the global leader in textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, and is supported by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. Because Cambio has acquired this certification, they can guarantee a traceable, ecological value chain in all their production processes – from certified weaving mills all the way to the finished trousers.
Sustainable Denim by Cambio
On average, one pair of jeans requires 8,000 liters of water and 2 kilograms of chemicals to produce. With Cambio using sustainable denim, eco-cotton, and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards) certified denims, this ensures that 80% less water and minimal chemicals are used in their production and 80% of the used water is then recycled. Nearly 90% of their materials originate in Europe and they work exclusively with carefully chosen weaving mills, including one in Italy who is one of their main suppliers.
