    “Hózhó″ is a Navajo word that means “walking in beauty” – or living in a manner that strives to create and maintain balance, harmony, beauty and order.

    The Navajo native American tribe had a rich language of symbols to depict important elements of life within the tribe. Idioma have used a few of their favourites representing peace, mountains, the eye of a shaman and home.

    They only made 100 of these and once they're gone, they're gone! 

  • Strong points

    Social

    - Cut and sewn in an exemplary factory in Tamul Nadu, India where the management have a commitment to ethical production at the core of their vision.

    Workers are fairly paid and provided with everything they need such as a medical room, free lunches and recreation space.  Overtime work is only ever done on a voluntary basis and workers are not allowed to do more than 12 hours per week. (This is in stark contrast to many apparel factories where workers are regularly forced to work excessive hours to meet tight deadlines imposed by big brands).

    - The factory is independently audited by the Fair Wear Foundation. 

    - Use of organic cotton means that pickers are not exposed to harmful chemicals.


    Environmental

    - Organic cotton (Global Organic Textile Standard-certified) planted and harvested by hand in a region where cotton farming is predominantly rain-fed. (Cotton’s biggest environmental impact worldwide is water use. Rain-fed cotton reduces the impact on waterways).

    - Factory where the sweatshirt is cut and sewn is powered entirely by renewable energy (most of which comes from 30 massive wind turbines).

    - Transported without the use of air freight.

    - Printed using water-based inks. (Most commercial screen printers use plastisol inks which contain PVC and phthalates that are harmful to the environment).

    Areas for development

    Idioma strive to use water based inks where possible but have found that for dark coloured products with a light print they do not provide the required effect.
