The brand's yarn supplier and manufacturer are sustainability accredited, which focuses on enhancing the welfare of the goats, farmers and communities within the cashmere farms, by laying out a clear and comprehensive set of criteria that govern all aspects of sustainable cashmere production. Regular checks are performed by independent auditors to ensure compliance with the criteria. This means that you as a customer can feel confident knowing Loop's cashmere source is sustainable sourced from Mongolia.
The brands ethical techniques don’t stop there, though. The team searched long and hard to find the right place to turn quality cashmere into the garments you can shop today. They found a wonderful factory in Mongolia with fantastic environmentally-friendly practices. The factory has a water treatment plant on-site to reuse all water used throughout the production process. They also plant trees to offset carbon emissions and grow vegetables that they use to cook lunch for the team.
Loops products are manufactured in short runs and they release new items as they become available, having been shipped by the least impact routes.
Following the creation of their pieces, Loop made sure to consider our environmental impact in their packaging too. 95% of the elements within the packaging and labelling are either recyclable or compostable.
Loops UK distribution centre, Enabled Works, is a not-for-profit distribution centre owned and run by a disabled workforce.
