We are so excited to introduce Tamga Designs to North's collection. This amazing company has gone the extra mile in its pursuit toward protecting our planet.
TAMGA Designs is a sustainable lifestyle movement, born out of the need for a positive example in fashion. We believe in a bright future for style, people and the planet, so we create clothing that respects all three. The magic begins in sustainably managed beechwood and eucalyptus forests in Europe and South Africa. Once harvested, these trees are transformed into TAMGA's TENCEL® and Lenzing Modal® fibers in a closed loop process that re-uses 99.8% of the water and chemicals. TAMGA fabrics are spun, woven and printed with GOTS certified dyes in Java, Indonesia, before being cut and sewn by workers who make a living wage with an ethical partner factory in Bali. Since the world already has enough plastic, each garment is packaged in a bio-degradable bag made from cassava starch. No detail is too small for TAMGA or the planet!
Protecting Indonesia’s Endangered Forests
The biodiversity of Indonesia’s rainforests is among the planet’s highest; orangutans, tigers, elephants and rhinos all call them home. Logging these rich forests for rayon fabric is having a long-term impact on the ecosystem that is hard to reverse. We’ve partnered with Canopy Style and the Sumatran Orangutan Society to protect these forests and develop solutions for a better future.
