Lonely Wolf was born in Carcaixent (Valencia), in 2020, with the intention of creating a community with values that bring us closer to a more ethical and sustainable world. That is why its products respect Slow Fashion, being produced on demand and always trying to find the most ecological and ethical way possible.
Lonely Wolf works with a supplier in Belgium who is responsible for the manufacturing stages of the garments. This supplier is certified by the Fair Wear Foundation, which guarantees that workers' conditions and rights have been respected throughout the entire production chain of a garment, and is also part of the amfori group, which offers advice and control over the work chain in order to comply with the necessary measures.
The finishing of the Lonely Wolf garments, i.e. the printing of the designs, is done in a small workshop in Valencia (Spain). This workshop is visited on a regular basis to ensure that everything is working as planned.
Lonely Wolf also donates 10% of its profits to social causes. They currently collaborate with the animal shelter Prohuellas de Bigastro, through the Teaming platform, but as their profits increase, they plan to allocate the money to other social causes.
Lonely Wolf garments are made from sustainable materials certified by their supplier.
The T-shirts are made from 100% organic cotton with STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certification, which verifies that there are no harmful substances in textiles or in the manufacturing stages of the product and Organic Content Standard (OCS), which ensures that at least 95% of the fibre is organic.
The sweatshirts are made from 71% organic cotton with Organic Content Standard (OCS) certification, 25% recycled polyester with Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) certification, which ensures that part of the fibres are recycled.
In addition, they use direct printing to avoid the excessive use of water in the screen printing process and the inks used in the printing are water-based inks, a more sustainable alternative, as they reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impact.
Lonely Wolf T-shirts score well in terms of circularity, as they are mono-material. This means that a garment is made from 100% single material, no blends and this makes the T-shirts easier to recycle when you dispose of them.
Lonely Wolf is not able to fully trace the first stages of its production chain and the confection of its products, because its supplier in Belgium is responsible for the first stages and the confection of its products. However, the COSH! team has investigated and believes that confection could be done in factories located in Bangladesh and China.
Lonely Wolf, on the other hand, can confirm that the last stage of the production chain, i.e. screen printing, is carried out in a small workshop in Valencia (Spain).
Lonely Wolf is a 100% vegan brand.
Their supplier is PETA certified, which guarantees that everything they sell is 100% vegan. This means that there are no animal products involved in any part of the creation of their products.
Lonely Wolf is a movement with its own style. They are committed to the Slow fashion concept, producing clothes that are timeless, i.e. that are valid for an infinite number of seasons.
What's more, at Lonely Wolf they process their products on demand and only have a small stock to take to fashion fairs. In this way, they avoid overproduction of garments.
Lonely Wolf likes to be transparent, so on their website they say what their profit margins are and where they spend the money earned from the sale of their products.
However, they can still improve the traceability of their products, in order to offer greater transparency to the consumer regarding the origin of the raw materials and the place of manufacture of their products.
If you love nature, are a respectful and ethical person, and pursue freedom, Lonely Wolf is your sustainable brand!
