Greetings from the production.
Who makes Alpa sweaters? Who is spinning the yarn?
Fashion revolution is a globally influential campaign aiming to create a more transparent and responsible clothing industry. Behind every garment is a person manufacturing it which is too often forgotten. Fashion revolution encourages to rise the artisans and craftspeople and their working conditions to spotlight. The campaign began in the aftermath of clothing industry’s biggest factory accident, the collapse of Rana Plaza, which killed more than 1,130 workers.
Now we will tell you more about the people who make Alpa’s knitwear and our yarn.
Production facility Garlita
We started cooperating with Garlita in 2016. Garlita is an innovative and modern production facility that has received awards for focuising in well-being at work and knitting innovations.
In 2019, Garlita began to generate all the energy needed for its own operations. This was made possible by covering the factory roof with solar panels.
Production facility T1 Gija
Gija is Alpa’s second partner in Lithuania. The cooperation began in late 2019. Gija has a long tradition in knitwear production in Lithuania and their history dates back to 1935.
Yarn supplier Michell y Cia S.A.
We started working with Michell in 2012, when Alpa was also founded. Michell is one of Peru’s leading producers of alpaca wool and has decades of expertise and expertise in growing alpaca and processing alpaca wool. Michell was founded in 1931.
We want to be transparent and show who is involved in the production of Alpa knitwear.
Rana Plaza reminds us all that there are people behind the clothes who deserve recognition, good working conditions and proper payment.
