The environment and sustainability
Garphyttan Original AB originate from a philosophy where care for people and nature is a priority. Our products must be developed and produced in a way that has as little impact on the environment as possible and protects people as much as possible.
People and nature
Our main actions concern energy consumption, resource consumption, production processes and compliance with laws and regulations. Our environmental work must be measurable.
Our clothes are developed to last for a long time, and contribute to a cycle where they are not just worn and thrown away. It is also clothing that inspires and contributes to increased outdoor stay, where people and nature are brought together, with the hope of increasing awareness and closeness to nature.
