"Ethical fashion is more than just clothing..."
Synergy believes that it matters how your clothing is made. They believe that consumers deserve the choice to buy clothing they feel good about wearing with the knowledge of where and how it was produced. From their home base in Santa Cruz, California to their handwork seamstresses in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal, the Synergy family is part of a global community with purpose. Synergy believes in creating high quality goods by supporting the well-being of those who make their business possible.
GOTS Certified Organic Cotton
Synergy clothing begins with GOTS certified organic cotton grown and loomed into fabric in India. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a lower impact on the environment than conventionally grown cotton such as not using toxic pesticides or synthetic fertilizers and without using genetically engineered seed.
Low Impact Dyes
All Synergy fabrics are also made with low impact dyes. These dyes have a high absorption rate, which decreases the use of rinse water and produces less waste. Without the use of harmful chemicals, their clothes are as gentle on your skin as they are on the planet.
Fair Trade Certified™ Factory
The importance of ethics is a deep part of the Synergy company and the livelihood of our planet and her stewards is at the core of their business model. Synergy is proud to consciously craft garments in a Fair Trade Certified™ factory in India and employ fair labor practices with their partners in Nepal. Fair Trade Certified™ factories must adhere to rigorous social, environmental and economic standards to protect the health and safety of the workforce.
Every Synergy Organic Clothing garment sewn by a well-trained man or woman tells a story of skill, craftsmanship, and care. By treating their employees with respect they create garments that are not only high quality, but that are empowering the people who made them.
Synergy believes that consumers deserve the choice to buy clothing that they feel good about wearing with the knowledge of where and how it was produced. Synergy strives to empower consumers to make more purposeful choices in the clothing they buy and wear. Ethical fashion is about more than just clothing, it is casting a vote for the type of future you want for the world and the people who live on it.
When you purchase a Synergy Organic Clothing garment, the story doesn't end there. Your garment was made by someone who was paid a living wage, while being protected from unsafe working conditions, and toxic chemicals. Through treating their employees well, Synergy believes that the future of these communities will be brighter and more prosperous. With your purchase, you are helping to give back to those communities in Nepal and India that have given so much to us already.
