We live in a globalised world, full of individualism, and hustle and bustle. But that’s not our philosophy; ours is very different. At indi & cold we want to make durable, quality garments; we like the idea of contributing a conscious vision to fashion, slowing down and continuing to work, just as we have done so far— step by step and with full awareness.
We create quality garments using high-quality materials through a transparent production process that helps all involved, because we care a lot about the future of the planet and the world that we’ll leave to our children. At indi & cold we firmly believe that change can start with the little things, that’s why each season we develop capsules that allow us to do our bit in making the world a better place.
c e r o
Every season excess fabric from the textile industry ends up in landfill.
c e r o, is the name of our sustainable collection, created from production surplus and given a second life by us. In this way, we contribute to a circular consumption and create a more sustainable production process of zero waste.
Because being part of the solution is worthwhile.
Where we manufacture
Proximity is a form of sustainability. That’s why we try to work increasingly with local suppliers. As of today, around 50% of our production process is based in Europe, mainly in Spain, Italy and Portugal, while we manufacture the rest with partners with whom we've maintained a close relationship for years. Among them, we especially value the artisanal quality of Morocco and India, always together with certified and audited factories.
We seek out small workshops and artisan techniques that have already been lost in our country, but that can add that rustic, artisan touch that is so characteristic of our brand. The relationship with most of our partners has been built over more than 20 years of work. We visit the workshops regularly, several times a year, which allows us to see first-hand where and how our garments are produced.
In addition, we see that our suppliers outside of Europe are audited by SEDEX and BSCI (Ethical Trade Audit), which guarantees compliance with not only ethical work standards but also environmental ones. Our collaboration with the FVF for over six years reinforces our connection to India and our gratitude for the added value that its artisanal craft gives to our garments.
BCI (Better Cotton Initiative)
This SS20 season we have begun making many of our trousers under the BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) certificate. A system for the sustainable production of cotton which includes the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, social and economic.
- Improves the health of both land and biodiversity
- Promotes better working conditions
- Increases traceability along the cotton supply chain
Dyes and Chemicals
All our garments are subjected to chemical tests that guarantee the non-use of harmful chemical substances in dyes and colorants (AZO FREE) in accordance with European regulation 2002/61/EC.
Just as we are more rigorously overseeing the workshops and production techniques for manufacture, we also care a lot about the origin of the materials used. And in this sense, little by little, we are incorporating fabrics that come from organic cultivation and more controlled processes.
We love this fabric! That’s why we’re creating more and more linen pieces.
Linen is a natural, sustainable fabric. The flax plant is very resistant to pests, does not need much fertilizer and requires less irrigation than cotton.
Among the most natural fibres, this is one of the most durable. In addition, it is a breathable fabric and thermo-adjustable, so it offers comfort in winter and keeps you cool in summer. Another quality of linen is that it gets softer with every wash.
Don’t miss out on our linen pieces! They are perfect for summer!
In 2017, we added this material into our collections. Organic cotton is grown on certified land, free of toxic substances, pesticides and insecticides. Organic agriculture is based on the rotation of crops instead of using artificial fertilizers. We use GOTS-certified cotton (Global Organic Textile Standard) which verifies and audits that the material used has been produced and processed according to the standard of organic crops, complying with environmental regulations.
