Oslo continues to impress with its strict use of sustainable fabrics, materials and production methods. Welcome to Oslo!
Plant-based polyester – Ecodear®:
Ecodear® is a polyester made partly from vegetable matter. Polyester usually consists of 100% petroleum. At Ecodear®, the ethylene glycol required for polymerisation is replaced by molasses - a by-product of sugar production.
Organic cotton is grown without the use of dangerous chemicals, chemical pesticides and fertilizers. To ensure that our cotton is really organic, our suppliers must provide evidence of certification from the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), Institute for Marketecology (IMO) and Control Union.
Our recycled wool comes from old clothes, the cuts from new clothes. After the recycled wool has been sorted, cleaned and broken down into tiny fibers in a factory in Italy, it is first spun into yarn and then processed into new and cozy, warm fabrics.
Bluesign approved fabrics and trimmings:
The bluesign® system provides the solution for sustainable textile production. It eliminates harmful substances right at the beginning of the manufacturing process and establishes and controls standards for environmentally friendly and safe production. Textiles made from bluesign® fabrics and trimmings meet the highest criteria in terms of resource efficiency and environmental impact.
In all of our products that are insulated with down, you will find either recycled down or down that is certified according to the RDS standard (Responsible Down Standard). This standard requires that all down must be a residual product from food production. In addition, we never work with suppliers who pluck down and feathers from live birds and / or force-feed birds. Bergans' down suppliers are also tested by the IDFL (International Down & Feather Laboratory) before being used in our products. So you and we are guaranteed to receive first-class and ethically perfect down.
All fabrics used in the Oslo collection are PFAS-free.
Did you know that Oslo is one of the greenest cities in the world? Oslo was even named European Green Capital 2019 by the European Commission. No wonder that we have named our new range of casual wear after Norway's beautiful capital.
