1+ in the Family

1+ in the family loves dressing babies! The brand is a baby collection focused on dressing babies from 0 to 48 months. 1+ in the family creates comfortable, stylish, and versatile designs which have minimal lines and simple patterns. They are timeless clothes made to last throughout babies' early years.

Continuous research and careful fabric selection are two of 1+ in the family’s passions and main sources of inspiration. The softness and the quality of the fabrics make the brand stand out, however, the origin and the manufacturing process thereof are relevant criteria, too. All the fabrics used by 1+ in the family are made by European suppliers, mainly from Italy, Spain, and France, all of which hold the OEKO-TEX certificate.



1+ in the family’s pursuit of continuous improvement has gradually led to the replacement of conventional materials and the introduction of new sustainable ones in order to reduce the impact of products on the planet and human health. For that reason, in the current collections, 1+ in the family already offers a wide range of sustainable fabrics and accessories such as:

  • Organic cotton fabrics as the main base in collections for newborns, whose organic yarn is GOTS certified.
  • Cotton fabrics made from 100% recycled fibers. 40% of this cotton yarn is recycled and has the Global Recycled Standard certificate.
  • Plant-based fabrics, such as Lyocell by LENZING™ and/or 100% linen fabrics.
  • The chemicals and dyes used for garment dyeing comply with the OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 regulations.

1+ in the family carefully selects accessories always made with materials of natural origin and which are OEKO-TEX certified and analyzed by AITEX. Coconut, wood, and corozo are some of the materials used to make the buttons. Others, such as zippers and snap buttons, which facilitate comfort, are also nickel-free certified. Corporate packaging, necessary to preserve hygiene and ensure the correct folding of the product, has also been replaced by recycled and recyclable plastic bags.

Ethical and local production

100% of 1+ in the family’s collection is made in Barcelona, Spain. The brand works with local workshops located around the Barcelona area, only a few kilometers away from the headquarters. Working hand in hand with local suppliers affirms 1+ in the family’s commitment to local production and guarantees better control over fair labor for all those people contributing to the manufacturing of products.

Supporting small business

The distribution of 1+ in the family products around the world is done mainly through small businesses, which the brand strongly supports and considers to be essential and part of the team. For this reason, the company's philosophy does not contemplate having its own stores or proper online sales.



How durable are Bellerose clothes?

Bellerose can’t talk about durability without talking about quality. In the end, what matters most to Bellerose is offering the best possible quality at the best possible price. That is why a great amount of time is spent searching for the right fabrics, the right quality, and the right suppliers to make sure Bellerose can do just that and deliver the premium items customers expect. Here’s a summary of the different angles from which Bellerose approaches durability.

 Durable clothes

Natural fabrics above all.

Bellerose's preference always goes out to working with natural fabrics like cotton, silk, wool, cashmere, and linen (among others) simply because they feel better on the skin, age better, and actually are durable. In contrast to synthetic fabrics, they’re breathable, recyclable, biodegradable, and naturally repellent to mold and dirt. Also, natural fabrics don’t contain microplastics, so they don’t add to the mass of plastic in the oceans. It’s important that Bellerose emphasizes the importance of the longevity of high-quality natural fabrics: they can be worn longer, passed on to new owners, and are easy to repair. At the final stage of their cycle, they’re also easier to recycle. When does Bellerose use synthetic fabrics? Usually, that happens when a fabric (like polyester) can add solidity to a garment or if it makes maintenance easier; both reasons also help extend the lifecycle of a product.

Working with the right suppliers.

Bellerose has a direct relationship with all of its suppliers worldwide. So, Bellerose can proudly say that every supplier they work with – no matter where - is a supplier they found themselves. They visit each of them at least once a year and try to construct a long-lasting relationship, sometimes going back to the start of Bellerose in the late 1980s. Why is this important? Direct communication enables Bellerose to explain the quality they’re after and to work together with the supplier to reach the desired quality. Cutting out the middleman also allows for a larger part of their payments to arrive directly with the suppliers and their workers.

Durable clothes

Quality = longevity.

Quality items simply last longer. It’s always possible that something escapes Bellerose's attention or that a specific product doesn’t meet their standards, but they do everything they can to prevent this. They have their own Quality Control department that conducts wearing and washing tests on all items, both in the sample phase of the product and the actual production phase. Plus, in terms of style, Bellerose goes for timeless cuts that can be worn for years and years, not throwaway trends. This will enable customers to wear Bellerose's clothes longer. If customers would happen to not enjoy one of Bellerose's garments anymore, they want to make sure it can find a new home easily. Bellerose knows that there’s a huge market for secondhand Bellerose clothes, be it through apps like Vinted or local flea markets and garage sales. Bellerose loves seeing that, as it proves that quality does last.

Free repairs!

Bellerose offers free repairs on all Bellerose clothing. No matter if customers bought their sweatshirt last month or 7 years ago. If there’s an issue with it, Bellerose will fix it for them, for free. In their Ghent flagship store, they even have an in-house repair atelier and they intend on installing the same concept in other key stores as well.

Buy less, but better.

To summarize, Bellerose would like to state the following: As weird as it may seem, they’d rather have customers buy 3 items that they’ll actually wear for years instead of 10 they’ll never wear. Clothes look best when they’re worn and lived in, Bellerose works hard to assure quality that will last and a style that won’t look silly in a few years. The people that make customers' clothes work hard on delivering the best product they can. So please, take your time to reflect. Try before you buy, compare qualities and styles, and don’t hesitate to ask Bellerose for advice.


Bobo Choses

Bobo Choses was born in 2008. Since then, Bobo Choses has formed emotional attachments between adults and children, creating imaginary worlds for kids to explore their creativity, play, and enjoy life.

Bobo Choses creates new products and services for creative children and growing-young parents around the world, who want to enjoy their lives, have fun, and grow away from the monster of routine in the digital age. From fun clothes and accessories to crazy children's books that give meaning to the collections or beautiful homeware that lifts feet off the ground.

Sustainability for bobo is...

Sustainability for Bobo Choses is the concept that guides all decisions in order to support and improve consumers’ lifestyles, commitment to build a community in which workers and stakeholders have a voice and are treated fairly, and the vision of creating a new business model that can give back to nature everything that nature has given us, including the magic of existence.


At Bobo Choses, responsibility for social and environmental footprints has always been taken seriously. This is why Bobo Choses strives to create products that are friendly to the environment while constantly working to improve the sustainability standards of production processes. Now that environmental protection is no longer an option but rather the key to the future, sharing this commitment with children becomes an obligation. Bobo Choses believes in the power that kids have to understand, act, and transform, even more so than adults. The protection of the environment is a responsibility that entails commitment and love. It can be protected while having fun enjoying the wonders of nature.

Bobo Choses is constantly searching for innovative materials and processes that match the character of Bobo Choses and complement its identity. There is a firm commitment to sustainable development, understanding that processes can always be improved and seeing it as an opportunity to build a strong community for attaining shared global goals. Everyone who is a part of the brand—from production to consumer—makes a contribution to building a better environment. A vital component of the work is the shared dream that when grown up, everyone will nurture the planet and plant the seeds for tomorrow’s world.

Bobo Choses' garments are made locally, working hand in hand with local suppliers and manufacturers, supporting them, and learning from their know-how. For this reason, the vast majority of production is located in Spain and Portugal, and most of it within 12 miles of headquarters. The raw material, printing, and washing factories Bobo Choses works with are OEKO-TEX certified and are thus fully compliant with responsibility standards. This enables the sharing of mutual responsibility for creating a fair and safe working environment.

Overview & evolution

Every enterprise, including the need to produce, requires the extraction of resources, the use of electricity and water, commuting, and interpersonal relationships, and that also includes lives as social beings. At Bobo Choses, the aim is to learn and evolve in harmony with the natural cycles of the environment. Building a strong community is believed in. Fair work, sustainable materials, saving water, and regenerating designs are all part of the world that has been dreamed of since 2008.

In the past five years, Bobo Choses has increased the use of certified organic cotton over traditional cotton by 82%. This has resulted in the equivalent of a 30% reduction in water consumption according to relevant standards.

Bobo Choses has also introduced responsibly sourced BCI cotton, thus reducing environmental impact and improving the working conditions of farmers through the promotion of fair trade. It reduces water consumption and the use of pesticides and fertilizers, it is not packed in synthetic packages, and it is not mixed with dirt. Even though this kind of cotton is not yet certified, it has outperformed conventional cotton in terms of cultivation and trading.

Furthermore, Bobo Choses has increased the use of certified cellulosic fabrics, since they reduce the exploitation of natural resources without balance, control, or mindfulness.

Bobo Choses is working on increasing the sourcing of responsibly and locally sourced wool, which will improve the footprint and safeguard animal welfare by responsibly extracting small amounts of the material. Bobo Choses has also replaced 56% of polyester with recycled polyester, and the use of this material is expected to grow exponentially by 2025. There is still a very long and challenging road ahead on a clearly defined path along which progress is being driven. Come with Bobo Choses and let’s make a difference together!


One of the key principles necessary for making accurate judgments regarding sustainability is measurement and data analysis. This is a very challenging task, given that Bobo Choses deals with complex processes and information throughout the supply chain. For many years, the certified B-Corp Anthesis has been supporting Bobo Choses with this challenge, and they have helped measure the impact of collections and processes. As Bobo Choses strives to open up more for customers, work is being done on the digital integration of the data obtained by recently partnering with B-Come to improve transparency

Ever since the very beginning in 2014, Repose AMS has felt hugely driven to contribute to a more sustainable and responsible fashion industry. First and foremost, by designing their creations to be durable and meaningful, always.

Besides the wondrous magic, (fast) fashion also has its flaws. It is the 2nd most polluting industry in the world. Textile production and consumption causes significant environmental, climate and social impacts by using resources like water, land, chemicals and landfills and we are part of this industry.

For Repose, discovering new ways to reduce their CO2 footprint and manufacturing their clothes in a more responsible way is a continuous journey. Repose is working on being different, and trying to make a difference. Repose AMS always aims to create and produce something meaningful, something with a story. They firmly stand by this mission, as they are committed to reduce the ecological footprint of Repose AMS as much as possible.

Organic cotton 
Repose commits to using organic cotton as much as possible. At this moment, 75% of the cotton used in their collections is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified cotton and produced ethically in Portugal. 

All the materials are carefully considered and chosen for their uniqueness. quality and particularly for their sustainability. All garments are designed with longevity in mind, their pieces are made to look great today and for many more years to come. 

In this way Repose ensures that they care for the inspiring and talented people they work with, for the animals they wish to keep healthy and happy, and for this beautiful earth that we are all mere visitors on.



The Animals Observatory

Sustainability is no longer an afterthought; it is the driving force of everything The Animals Observatory does. Since the beginning, The Animals Observatory has vowed to celebrate the beauty of the passage of time through things; it’s number one on the manifesto. The Animals Observatory can only do this by putting sustainability at the core of everything done.

The Animals Observatory knows fashion is one of the world’s most resource-intensive industries. The Animals Observatory designs with this in mind, focusing on sustainable fabrics and material innovation and collaborating hands-on with suppliers.

Production and materials

Circular economy

Part of The Animals Observatory's cotton garments are made from 100% cotton, 80% virgin cotton and 20% of which is recycled cotton made from leftover and faulty material from previous productions. The Animals Observatory collected this material from producers and paid a negotiated price. As intended, all companies involved in this process were from the same region in order to keep this process more environmentally friendly. The recycled materials are also GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified. Besides, part of the cotton is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified.

The defective pieces of clothing from previous seasons have been used to create a new recycled textile for upcoming sustainable collections.

The whole process is carried out in Portugal and Catalonia (collecting scraps and faulty items in Portugal, crushing up the material in Olot, spinning the recycled material in Girona and weaving the material in Portugal, and fabricating the final product in Portugal).


The Animals Observatory produces mostly in Portugal and Spain. However, a few specific items are produced in Turkey and, to a lesser extent, China. All supplier choices must comply with the following criteria:

  1. Working conditions
  2. Know-how and experience
  3. Production capabilities with different textiles
  4. Recommendations from other providers
  5. Communication and transparency
  6. Payment conditions
  7. Production and delivery capacity


All The Animals Observatory's suppliers fulfill REACH* regulation, which stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals and is a European Union regulation adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.


The Animals Observatory's production packaging is made of 100% recycled and recyclable plastic, made in Portugal, Turkey, and China, which means it is made locally where the production is.


The New Society 

The New Society has the goal of being part of the change and making a positive

impact on asocial and environmental level.

They work daily on looking for conscious solutions at each step of the production process: 

1. The collections are created in small workshops in Portugal where The New Society looks for experience and passion in those they work with, and so create dignified working conditions.

2. The New Society pieces are made of organic, recycled or natural fibers - eliminating fertilizers and pesticides from the process. Thus, they avoid contaminating the land or water.

3. The New Socity works to reduce water and energy consumption, cut the volume of our textile waste and eliminate plastics from our packaging.

4. The New Sociey chooses certified wash facilities that offer a cleaner and more conscientious service, avoiding the use of corrosive dyes and bleaches, using biodegradable detergents and reusing the water once it has been purified. In this way they reduce the impact on one of the most polluting processes in the value chain.


Wander & Wonder

As you might know Wander and Wonder has moved all the production to Portugal starting this FW24. 

The reason why they moved to Portugal is because the manufacturing here is absolutely environmentally conscious. The factory is GOTS certified and Wander & Wonder uses organic cotton as much as possible in their products. 

The factory is 100% fair trade as well. 

For packaging W&W are using 100% biodegradable plastic bags. 

“We will constantly try our best to produce sustainable products going forward and it is our goal to make long lasting and beautiful products for children. “
