Baserange is a line of affordable sustainable under and easy wear. The focus is on working with high quality, organic fabrics in innovative ways that benefits both producer and consumer while minimizing environmental impact. Modern basics in easy soft silhouettes made to emphasize natural beauty and be forever wearable.
HOW THEY WORK
Baserange underwear, t-shirts, sweats and leather garments are produced in small towns around Porto in Portugal while woven garments are made in a small town near Izmir from only natural fabrics such as silk, linen and wool, using old knowledge of natural fabrics and processes.
At the heart of their fabrics are natural fibers such as organic cotton, recycled cotton or wool, natural silk or linen and bamboo.
A big part of the brand's products comes in ecru (off white) or completely raw. Meaning that on these products no dying or chemical bleaching processes were applied.
Whenever dying is used the products are certified Eco-tex dyes or GOTS (global organic textile standard) which means they consume a lot less water in the dying process and do not utilize any heavy metal dyes or toxic elements.
