Not only do travelers leave traces, but also the clothes that they wear. To ensure Elkline’s footprint stays as minimal as possible, we put sustainability first: Conserve natural resources. Create socially responsible manufacturing conditions. Limit waste. 

Sustainability isn’t a fancy buzzword to us – it’s personal. As a company, we produce high-quality, durable and modern companions for all situations in life. That means for us: Conserving natural resources. Creating socially responsible manufacturing conditions. Limiting waste. 


100% Organic

Every single piece from the Summer of Love collection is made from 100% organic cotton, which is produced at certified organic cultivation. We select our producers carefully to ensure that they meet the high demands of Elkline and to guarantee organic cotton to the highest standard.


Part of our holistic understanding of sustainability is taking care of the people who work for Elkline. We sustain long-term co-operations with our manufacturing partners and continue our efforts to support them. Our motto: fair prices for fair working conditions, respectful collaborations and socially responsible manufacturing sites. 


Over the Years

GOTS Certified

In addition to that, all t-shirts from the Summer of Love collection are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. This standard is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well. GOTS relies on a dual system to check compliance with the relevant criteria consisting of on-site auditing and residue testing of the entire supply-chain. Elkline is GOTS certified by Ecocert Greenlife since March 2016. With this, we guarantee transparency and both social and ecological production standard during the supply chain of your product.

One requirement for labelling our shirts as GOTS certified is meeting the high GOTS standard during the entire supply chain of the products. You can now track this supply chain by yourself: Take a look behind the scenes. Get to know our manufacturers. Have a look at our sewing and printing.
