It's no longer a secret, neither for you nor for us. Due to the use of chemicals and overconsumption,
the fashion industry is now the second most polluting industry.
Orta wants to do better and is committed to work towards sustainable fashion and consumption.
Our goal: to offer you sustainable, durable and fashionable European creations for a reasonable price.
To create responsibly, in addition to producing locally, we use more fabrics of natural origin and we want them to be ethically grown and processed.
Whenever possible, we use GOTS
It is certified because it meets strict ecological and environmental criteria and it guarantees the respect of fundamental social criteria.
GOTS ensures the presence of at least 70% organic natural fibers, from the harvest of raw materials to the final product.
Our fabrics are sometimes also OEKO-TEX certified. This certification guarantees the absence of substances that are harmful to human health.
But it also attests to the exemplary working conditions of the employees.
Some of our creations are made from CARDATO certified wool.
What does that mean specifically?
This certification guarantees the use of 100% European wool - Italian wool, to be exact - of which at least 65% of yarns are recycled.
In our continuous pursuit of sustainability, we
started using FSC certified viscose
as soon as we were able to.
What does this mean exactly?
This certification guarantees the traceability and sustainable management of the forests where our viscose comes from.
Some of our workshops and washing facilities are GOTS certified. They are committed to following strict environmental criteria, as well as providing their employees with a good working environment.
These workshops are audited on a yearly basis in order to verify their compliance with these requirements.
At Orta, we favor to the use of sustainable materials: organic, certified...
We ensure that the culture and processing of our materials is carried in compliance with environmental and societal conditions.
We pay attention to every detail when it comes to our sustainable approach, so we send your packages in a reusable 100% cotton pouch, carefully stored in an envelope made of 100% recycled and recyclable plastic.
The fashion industry uses a lot of water. When it comes to the treatment of our raw materials, we’ve made the choice to use techniques and processes to optimize water use.
This is most obvious in the dyeing
and finishing stages.
Orta is responsible for everything, from harvesting the fibers to the shipment of your favorite creations.
We favor transport by land when shipping all our creations in order to reduce our carbon footprint and our impact on the environment.
You will find pictograms on each product sheet so that you know exactly what you’re buying.
