Circular business model
Riz have longterm relationships with their factory in Portugal and digital printers in the UK. To their knowledge workers are treated well and remunerated fairly. It has not been feasible to carry out their own assessment of their fabric supplier so they rely on their reputation and independent certifications.
The shorts are cut and sewn in Portugal, in a small, family run factory who have a longstanding reputation in the Portuguese garment industry. The Fair Wear Foundation considers Portugal a low risk country with properly functioning institutions (trade unions, labour legislation, labour inspection) which should lead to compliance with basic standards. However the 2008 economic crisis has put pressure on the industry and FWF recommends performing regular visits to suppliers to ensure that international standards and labour laws are respected. Riz visit Sergil occasionally and plan to visit again this year.
Using recycled polyester has several environmental benefits. As traditional polyester is made from petroleum, using recycled fibres greatly reduces the fossil fuel-based inputs needed to manufacture polyester. Whilst also helping to divert old garments from landfills – in perpetuity! Compared to incinerating old garments and extracting and transporting virgin raw materials (oil and natural gas) using recycled polyester can reduce CO2 emissions by 71%. (Patagonia Common Threads)
Riz are pioneers of a circular business model. They make shorts from recycled materials that will last a really long time, and then reduce waste through repair, rewear and finally recycling.
