Since 2019, our commitment to increasing the use of sustainable fibres has become increasingly clear with each collection. Thanks to the involvement of every department, we have made significant progress in a little over 3 years:
Goals for 2025
This plan is continuing to move forward with medium-term goals:
100% more sustainable cotton
Artificial cellulose fibres
entirely sourced from certified sustainable forests (Viscose, Modal, Lyocell, Acetate…)
Increased recycled fibres
Our creative process
A creative and artistic spirit is part of our DNA, along with innovation and being a company that is open to collaborating with other designers and artists. All these values can be seen in our designs:
Arty and Patch inspiration
The designers seek inspiration and research their proposals for the collection so they can be put down on paper: they visit art galleries, study books and fashion magazines, look for ideas on their travels and getaways…
Developing the collection
Our product and graphic designers work on the various parts of the collection by teaming up with experts on fabrics, quality, product and dressmaking, with sustainability in mind from the very beginning.
3D design techniques are used to anticipate any needs or risks that may arise during the production process. This helps to decrease the number of samples and to make more efficient use of resources, while reducing the impact on our carbon footprint.
Responsible choice of raw materials
Manufacturing responsible products starts with the choice of raw materials. The source of the materials and the way in which they are processed and supplied have a direct impact on the environment. Our materials policy ensures compliance with a set of responsible production standards related to the use of raw materials of animal and plant origin, through specific declarations and certifications.Download the materials policy
Sustainable labelling requirements
Desigual contributes to making consumers more informed and conscious of the sustainability of garments through a new labelling model that specifies the type of fibres and processes used to manufacture them:
The Product department engages in key synergies and partnerships with leading international bodies and collectives. Our decision-making process takes into account the interests and expectations of our stakeholders, as well as the standards defined by these organisations and our commitments to them.
