Sustainable Brand Highlight - Base Range
Founded in 2012, Base Range is a line of modern basics with an emphasis on clean lines and easy silhouettes. The company works closely with innovative vendors to develop high quality textiles from both natural fibers and recycled content. In selecting fabrics, a great importance is placed on production process and the extent to which it impacts the environment. Base Range only uses certified GOTS dyes. These consume a lot less water in the dying process and does not utilize any heavy metal dyes or toxic elements. Bamboo, one of the most used fabrics for the undergarments within Base Range's collection, requires less water consumption and needs very little land space to grow. Naturally disease and pest resistant, bamboo is grown without toxic pesticides or fertilizers. Bamboo also helps mitigate water pollution due to its high nitrogen consumption. Along with Bamboo, other natural fibers such as organic and recycled cotton, natural silk, and linen are at the heart of Base Range's fabrics. When sustainable solutions are not possible, they seek to work transparently and consciously in order to provide consumers with as much information as possible so their purchasing decisions can be informed. Lastly, Base Range works exclusively with family based factories that are based in small towns in Portugal. The close range to Base Range's headquarters in Toulouse, allows for regular visits to their factories and reduction in the time, cost, and carbon footprint of transporting their garments. Base Range believes that a commitment to clean production will minimize environmental impact and benefit both the producer and the user. Their dedication to sustainability while providing affordable and luxurious garments is inspiring. Get 15% off their products through the end of the day tomorrow in celebration of Earth Day!
