Sustainability & Social Compliance

Tine Mollatt started byTiMo back in 2004 with a vision to offer something more than just another piece of clothing, she wanted to create something with value and a heart. We are aware of the massive impact the fashion industry has on our planet, which is why we are doing what we can to create clothes that last in sustainable fabrications.

For us it is important to respect the people involved in the supply chain, and to have the health of mother earth in mind when we produce and create new collections.

We work with long lasting fabrications, shapes and trends. Pieces that are made to last, that can be washed over and over again. Clothes that are made to live in a girl’s wardrobe for years to come.

byTiMo has embraced ethical and sustainable production since our beginning in 2004. For me, Tine, sustainability has been one of my brands core values

We are proud to say that we work with a strict Code of Conduct and social compliance towards all our suppliers and ateliers; all workers, may they be the farmers harvesting the cotton, the tailors or factory workers, are all taken well care of, given respect, given a proper wage, in safe and modern working environments.

We work with slow fashion, and long-lasting materials. We want to encourage the consumer to buy less, but when you buy, buy high quality, sustainably made garments, to have and to keep.

We work with 100% FSC certified sustainable viscose. We plant three trees for every tree we take to make this viscose, making sure we don’t take more than we give.

 All our cottons are GOTS certified, organic cotton. We work with responsibly sourced wool.

 We recycle the dye-water used when colouring and printing our fabrics, so we don’t pollute the rivers and drinking water where we produce.

- OEKO-TEX Certified:

OEKO-TEX certification promises that every component of the article, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless in human ecological terms.

- GOTS Certified:

GOTS is a textile production certification that limits the use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemical inputs during the production process of textiles. It is internationally recognized as the toughest organic textile standard because it goes far beyond verifying the organic farming process to include every step of manufacturing!

- RWS  Certified:

The Responsible Wool Standard is a voluntary standard that addresses the welfare of sheep and the land they graze on. The RWS requires all sites to be certified, beginning with the wool farmers and through to the seller in the final business to business transaction.

- OCS  Certified:

The Organic Content Standard (OCS) is an international, voluntary standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of certified organic input and chain of custody. The goal of the OCS is to increase organic agriculture production. The certification ensures that the identity of the organic content is maintained: from farm to final product.  Only material from certified organic farms is accepted to the OCS..

- BCI Certified:

The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global not-for-profit organisation and the largest cotton sustainability programme in the world. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector's future.

- ECO VERO Certified:

Derived from certified renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process by meeting high environmental standards, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers tailor to a sustainable lifestyle, contributing to a cleaner environment.

- FSC Certified:

FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

- GCR Certified:

Global Recycled Standard is a certification for the use of recycled materials. The GRS is intended to meet the needs of companies looking to verify the recycled content of their products (both finished and intermediate) and to verify responsible social, environmental and chemical practices in their production (the entire supply chain). By using recycled materials, we reduce the need for new raw materials, and reduce climate emissions. We reduce the use of water and energy.
