Knowing where your clothes come from is as important as the quality or style. With our traceability module you can track the journey of any AMENDI® garment, from the loom to your closet.


Did you know a pair of jeans has the same basic beginnings as an apple or a rose. A seed in the dirt, sunlight, and soil. After some human toil something blooms. A mystery, a miracle. Then, poof! A perfect pair of jeans shows up in a store, like magic. But it’s not magic. It is so much more than that.

Traceability is the lodestar of our transparency initiatives. It is a way to not only understand who, what, where, and how something was made.

It is a way of organizing information so that the earthly resources and the epic amounts of human effort and ingenuity it takes to create even something as simple as a plain white t-shirt are better understood.

By being able to track the journey of your garment from the farm to your closet we hope to restore the inherent value of it. We want to remove the magic and replace it with appreciation. And hopefully build some trust along the way.


It’s been said “every dollar is a vote,” but a vote for what? Our transparency program, which starts with our Fabrication Facts tag, is our answer to that question. Some have told us it’s not good for business to provide so much information to our customers but we think it’s the only way to do good business. We want you to know your clothes.

The country were the product been manufactured.
A list of certifications that all suppliers involved in the manufacturing process has acquired.
The garment’s fabric, ribbing, and stitches, including thread. It’s probably the most important measurement when looking at a product's ecological impact.
The garment’s labels and tags. While not a substantial part of the overall garment they are usually created in bulk. We aim for upcycled, deadstock, or organic materials.
The amount of KWh consumed for the manufacturing of the garment.
The amount of water used to produce the garment. By “recycled” we mean water that is used in a closed-loop production system that filters and reuses water.
Knowing why a garment costs what it does is an extremely important part in knowing your clothes. Our cost breakdown is meant to give you insight into how the business runs.
Cost percentage allocated to fabric.
Cost percentage allocated to patches, labels, even the threads to connect the labels, or embossing on a patch.
Cost percentage allocated to the actual production of the garment itself, the human and machine labor, minus materials.
Cost percentage allocated to ship this item to its location of sale (this can vary by country or method, calculation is an average).
The approx amount of humans thats been involved in the process of making the final garment.


Our suppliers are not only some of the most respected in their categories, they are our friends. They understand our mission and have all signed a Code of Conduct to commit to both high employee working standards and innovative sustainable practices. This is a crucial part of our mission.
