It's no longer a secret, neither for you nor for us. Due to the use of chemicals and overconsumption,
the fashion industry is one of the 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 Textile fibers GOTS certified. The fibers come from organic farming and the fabric is certified because it meets strict ecological and environmental criteria. This label guarantees compliance with fundamental social criteria. GOTS ensures the presence of at least 70% organic natural fibers. To learn more, click here
Our fabrics are mainly OEKO-TEX certified. This certification guarantees the absence of substances that are harmful to human health. To learn more, click here
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.
As we progressively raise our sustainability standards, we favor the use of GRS-certified recycled fibers whenever possible. GRS is a voluntary, international standard that establishes criteria for the third-party certification of recycled content, the chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical composition restrictions.To learn more, click here.
When it comes to choosing our fabrics, we favor the LENZING™ ECOVERO™ viscose. LENZING™ ECOVERO™ viscose fibers are derived from sustainable wood and pulp from certified and controlled sources. They have been certified with the EU Ecolabel as meeting high environmental standards throughout their life cycle: from raw material extraction to production, distribution and disposal.

The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) certification aims to improve the living conditions and economic development of cotton-growing regions and reduce the impact of cotton production on the environment. To learn more, click here
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.
At Orta, our collections are entirely made in France and Portugal. We have made the choice to produce on a European scale. We can therefore guarantee transport by land (whether for our raw materials, out prototypes or our collections) with the aim of trying to reduce our carbon footprint and our impact on the environment.
Derived from certified renewable wood sources using an eco-responsible production process meeting high environmental standards, LENZING™ ECOVERO™ fibers are tailored to a sustainable lifestyle and contribute to a cleaner environment.
The process of turning wood into fabric follows strict standards imposed by the EU Ecolabel, as to ensure that it is indeed environmentally friendly. This label only rewards products that have a low environmental impact throughout the entire chain: raw materials, manufacturing, distribution and disposal.
The result? The impact of LENZING™ ECOVERO™ has a water consumption, as well as an environmental impact 50% lower compared to that of traditional viscose, making it a silky, yet more sustainable and environmentally friendly material.
The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) certification identifies cotton fiber produced, processed, distributed and sold by members of an international network committed to promoting a sustainable supply system.
The standard aims to reduce the environmental impact of cotton farming, improve livelihoods and economic development in cotton-growing regions, and increase certification throughout the supply chain.
For producers, the certification addresses six issues: crop, water, soil and habitat protection, as well as fiber and working conditions quality.
The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) is designed to meet the needs of companies that want to verify the recycled content of their goods (finished and intermediate) and monitor the sustainable social, environmental and chemical practices in their production.
The objectives of the GRS are to define requirements that ensure the accuracy of content claims and the quality of working conditions, and to minimize environmental and chemical impacts. It applies to textile companies involved in spinning, knitting, printing, stitching, ginning, weaving and dyeing, but also to recyclers and processors of recycled materials, distributors and brands.
Ultimately, working with GRS-certified factories means ensuring that they meet the criteria of these various audits.
The GOTS label is a label that allows for the review of suppliers’ social and environmental practices along the supply chain.
Ultimately, working with GOTS certified factories means ensuring that they meet the criteria of these various audits.
The OEKO-TEX Standard 100 label is a label which makes it possible to verify the safety of materials, that they are non-hazardous, for the person who handles / wears them.
