Sustainability is lived by us and has top priority.
In addition to test seals and sustainability awards, this means for us:
- Transparent supply chain - Use of traceable materials.
- Efficient procurement of raw materials - keeping distances as short as possible
- Open and visible production conditions - producers from nearby European countries and/or Germany
- Ecological packaging - Sensible procurement of raw materials
- Purchase and recycling of unused raw materials also from other producers, if our quality criteria are met. This means buying them up before they are incinerated or end up in the worldwide textile landfills.
- At the same time, in the context of sustainability, we are committed to forward-looking collection development, which means that we do not need new ingredients and materials every season, but we can develop the collections in such a way that we use ingredients and materials over a longer period of time.
The producer who responsibly and lovingly produces our MYJAMA products celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2020.
Since 1920, they have been manufacturing textiles that touch the skin with Swabian care and the highest standards of material and workmanship. For the traditional company, social responsibility and sustainability are top priorities. A finish free of harmful substances is a matter of course for them. This company policy has been lived by their long-time employees for more than a century now and has been passed on for generations. Their articles are produced exclusively in Germany and Europe and they also rely on short transport routes when sourcing ingredients. This ensures a consistently high standard of quality. The conscious use of all resources is a matter close to their hearts. Values in which we from MYJAMA also find ourselves and which we share without exception.
Our MYJAMA products are cut to size in the Swabian Jura and sewn in our own factory in Romania. The final quality control and packaging of the goods is then carried out at our headquarters in the Swabian Jura.
Our producer in the Swabian Jura is a member of the amfori BSCI.
The amfori BSCI is one of the leading business initiatives to improve working conditions in global supply chains.
With the amfori BSCI Code of Conduct, companies consolidate their business in the long term and thus reduce their risks - including those of their business partners and investors, lenders or insurers.
Code of Conduct
The amfori BSCI Code of Conduct is based on the conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO), the universal human rights declarations of the United Nations, the UN Global Compact and the OECD guidelines. All amfori BSCI participants agree to the CoC and commit to its compliance.
By joining amfori BSCI, participants commit to engage their suppliers in the amfori BSCI process and progress in implementation is continuously monitored.
The suppliers of the BSCI participants in turn commit to comply with the BSCI Code of Conduct and are audited accordingly. In addition, the companies are continuously trained and supported in their further development.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognized as the world's leading standard for the processing of textiles made from organically produced natural fibers. At a high level, it defines environmental requirements along the entire textile production chain and, at the same time, the social criteria to be met. Quality assurance is carried out through independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
The goal of the seal is a globally uniform, controllable, social and ecological standard that covers the entire textile production chain and makes it traceable. The focus is on the strictly monitored use of chemicals during all manufacturing processes.
Textiles that consist of at least 70 percent organically produced natural fibers and meet the requirements may bear the GOTS seal.
Our Modal goods are certified by Lenzing Austria and provided with a certificate version number as proof that the Micro Modal used really comes from Lenzing and is thus the product of a resource-saving manufacturing process.
