All Jack Impala garments undertake a long but sustainable journey from the cotton field to the final product. We approach every step in the complex supply chain as responsibly as possible. Our organic cotton comes from India and goes through a number of stages from the cotton farm to the final product: the Jack Impala garments.
We only work with 100% organic cotton and recycled materials
At Jack Impala, we work with our supplier to source garments using only the best raw materials, grown and manufactured in such a way that they do not harm people, animals and the environment. We only use GOTS-certified organic cotton from India, recycled polyester from China and other sustainable materials such as Modal®.

Organic cotton, how does it differ from 'ordinary' cotton?
Organic cotton, unlike regular cotton, is grown without chemical insecticides, fertilizers or pesticides. This means that no hazardous or toxic substances end up in the soil, rivers and lakes, so that farmers and their families can live in a safe environment.
What else do we take into account?
Checking every step of the production process
To ensure that our clothing is produced in responsible working conditions, we work together with the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF). They set up mechanisms for decent working conditions, such as an internal code of conduct, monthly reports and daily visits to our partner factories.
Measuring emissions and consumption, awareness are the environmental impact
Data is collected throughout the supply chain to better understand and minimize environmental impact. In terms of wastewater, all partner factories are equipped with state-of-the-art water treatment plants that remove toxic substances from the water for safe reuse.
We strive for new, sustainable initiatives
Of course there is no magic formula for sustainability, but we like to come up with new, innovative working methods that have a positive impact on people and the planet. We are constantly working on new ideas to make a difference and hope to become a little more sustainable in the future.
