MADE IN TURKEY

Turkey is home to some of the finest farmers and clothing producers in the world. Because of this and its proximity to our Swedish headquarters, we currently source and produce all of our clothing in Turkey. This allows us to refine our supply chain, maximize our quality, verify ideal working environments for employees while minimizing our greenhouse emissions by not shipping across different countries for different processes.

HENATEAKS BOYA VE, TURKEY
Owned and operated by the Avelino family, Henateaks Boya, a dyeing and finishing company, has evolved a lot over the past decade.

It is a resource heavy process that uses a lot of water and traditionally creates a lot of waste. Henateaks uses a circular water system which uses water from the local river and treats and cleans it before and after use. Their process has been certified by every major oversite organization, and we’re proud to have them as a partner.

STROM DENIM, TURKEY
Strom Denim was founded in 2008 by Kadri Kayhan and originally focused on manufacturing premium denim products for the Turkish market. Since then Strom has evolved into a world-leading denim manufacturer and a pioneer in sustainable technology. In 2013 Mr. Omer Mert, and his friend and colleague, Baris Izcimen, were working as merchandisers at a competing denim manufacturer. They were impressed and intrigued enough by Strom’s success and forward-thinking vision that they left their jobs and became partners in Strom. Today Omer, Baris, and Mirac, Kadri Kayhan’s son, lead and manage all daily operations.
Strom’s first factory is fully vertical, meaning all the steps for production: cutting, sewing, washing, etc., are done under one roof. This allows for greater quality control, a more transparent supply chain, and a smaller carbon footprint. In 2019 Strom was excited to open a new cut and sew warehouse only a few kilometers away from their first factory. Both factories share a state-of-the-art laundry facility that is updated with the latest technology for creating wash effects on denim such as water-saving E-flow nano-bubble washing machines, ozone machines, and waterless laser applicators.

Strom’s focus is to grow by partnering with premium brands that appreciate their quality craftsmanship, careful attention to detail, quality working standards for employees, and progressive technologies for cleaner production. They have no interest in working with larger retail chains.
