HOW THEY WORK
All Baserange underwear t-shirts, sweats and leather garments are produced in small towns around Porto in Portugal. All woven garments are produced in a small town called Odemis near Izmir from only natural fabrics such as silk, linen and wool, with an old knowledge of natural fabrics and processes.
Natural fibers such as organic cotton, recycled cotton or wool, natural silk or linen and bamboo are used at the heart of Baserange’s fabrics. While all dyes used are certified Öko-tex dyes or GOTS which consume a lot less water in the dying process and do not utilise any heavy metal dyes or toxic elements that are still used by a many large garment producers outside of Europe. A big part of Baserange’s product group is raw or ecru (off white). Meaning that there has been no dying or chemical bleaching processes on these products.
