Sustainability

Among sports brands, Torstai shows the way towards a more sustainable future. In addition to conscious cotton production and a completely PFC-free collection, Torstai is taking yet another step forward by including recycled materials in the season’s selection.

A.W.S. SUSTAINABLE

Products labelled with the A.W.S. Sustainable symbol are made with a special focus on ecological and social sustainability. More responsible active wear and sportswear that is better for people and nature.

SUSTAINABLE COTTON

Conscious cotton production is based on socially sustainable practices and compliance with strict environmental standards. Four years ago, Torstai was the world’s first sports brand to join the Fairtrade Cotton Program, which creates fairer trading conditions for the cotton farmers and prohibits child labour. So as a consumer, you can look stylish and help developing countries at the same time. Sounds fair, doesn’t it?

WOOD FIBER

Wood fibre is a renewable, recyclable and biodegradable material that leaves a significantly smaller environmental footprint than traditional textile fibres. Our eco-friendly choice – TENCEL™ Lyocell fibre – is derived from sustainably managed forests and manufactured in a closed-loop process that recycles and reuses the water and solvent needed.

RECYCLED MATERIALS

Recycled materials make less of an impact on our environment. Repreve® is a recycled fibre made mainly from post-consumer plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in landfills or as litter. As an excellent contribution to the circular economy, Repreve® helps conserve water and energy and spares natural resources by giving a new lease of life to existing materials. 

NO FUR, NO FLEECE, NO DOWN

All Torstai products are completely free from animal fur and down. Instead of real down we use down-like insulation and other synthetic wadding alternatives to hold in warmth in colder weather. Synthetic insulation is designed to replicate the qualities of down, but unlike down it also provides warmth even when wet. To help protect the environment, we have also completely discontinued use of fleece products.

PFC-FREE

Even before the ban on perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) was widened in the EU, Torstai had taken a clear stand and decided to discontinue use of all PFCs in its products. For the water-repellent impregnation we use an ecological alternative, Bionic Finish® Eco. This is a fluorine-free coating that keeps fabrics and colours looking new for longer without any harm to health or the environment.

KEEP IT IN THE FLOW

We design high-quality clothes that stand the test of time. Your actions matter, too! Make someone else happy by donating old clothes that are still in good condition or find them a new owner through second-hand shops. When a garment is torn, try mending it! And if you’re not so great with sewing, maybe you know someone who could help? When clothes come to the end of their useful life, consider recycling the material instead of simply throwing it out. Appropriately recycled textiles can be put to various uses, such as cleaning cloths or as insulation material.
