Sustainability & Reponsebility
Sustainable fashion is the future! That’s why Elyot Designs is taking steps to make sure we’re part of the movement. We only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Our printing partner’s state-of-the-art printing tech creates almost no wastewaters and uses less energy.
We know that sustainability is important: for our customers, our team, and of course, the planet. We also know that all the sustainability challenges in the fashion industry don’t have a quick fix.
Always changing for the better
We choose our printing partner’s carefully with the criteria listed below
Made to order
Every purchase, big or small, has a footprint. With each purchase, you have a choice. You choose the size of the mark to leave on the planet, and we want to help you choose wisely.
Around 85% of all textiles produced by the fashion industry end up in landfills, making it a major contributor to environmental damage. One in every five garments reaches a landfill without being worn even once. By choosing print-on-demand, we choose apparel that’s created only as the order is placed, creating less fabric waste than conventional manufacturing.
One of our main ways we’re reducing waste is by improving our packaging, starting with our most popular categorie: Posters. We used to started using retangular boxes to replace tubes with plastic end caps.
Our products are made using the made-to-order production approach, fulfilling only the items our customers actually want. We still have a lot to learn and do to make our production process more sustainable.
Around 78% of our orders are delivered in the same region they’re fulfilled. Having fulfillment centers close to our customers is good both for the customer and the planet. Strategically placed fulfillment centers allow for faster shipping times and lower shipping costs, as well as reduces the CO₂ emissions produced when transporting orders.
Quality you can rely on
Since quality is sustainability, we’re dedicated to giving you products that last.
The better the quality, the longer the product lasts. Before we add products, we do durability and wash tests to make sure they’ll last. Buying long-lasting products means reducing new purchases.
We work with suppliers that produce high-quality products that last many washes, keeping print colors vibrant and the fabric soft.
Our printing partner’s eco-friendly product collection consists of items that feature sustainable, recycled, or biodegradable materials.
Since we’re seeing increased demand for eco-friendly products from our customers, we’re happy to provide even more conscious fashion choices. Our eco-friendly product collection is growing along with the needs of our customers.
A significant part of our products are printed with the direct-to-garment (DTG) technique. With DTG, ink is sprayed onto the garment, which helps it soak better into the fabric and makes the print less prone to fading. (T-Shirts are currently not available)
They print our posters with Epson inks that are certified by GreenGuard.
