While fashion is transient, our ethos is drawn from the classics: understated, contemporary garments. Rakha does not follow seasons or trends but rather focuses on re-designing those classic pieces. The brands approach to sustainability is through creating garments made from bio-degradable or recycled aiming to achieve a closed loop system. Social and environmental responsibility is an integral part of our brand’s strategy and practice. We strive to work with innovative materials and processes.
Many people are now beginning to realise the negative impact of fashion on people and the environment. Current production processes place economic gains of large companies above environmental and ethical considerations, causing large amount of waste and pollution threatening people and our planet. Rakha was created with the idea of re-defining classics, considering design for longevity and the materials in mind to ensure a circular approach is taken from the design stage throughout the whole processes involved in its supply chain. After comprehensive research and detailed study on how we can help change the whole supply chain and create a better clothes, our sustainability journey started.
Social and environmental responsibility is an integral part of our brand’s strategy and practice. We strive to work with innovative materials and processes. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and working with partners who share our values. By continually reviewing and improving our sustainability performance we aim to encourage our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to do the same.
We seek to find the most innovative and sustainable materials available.
We aim to work only with green manufacturers, with established environmental management systems, standards and certifications, limiting the carbon impact, waste and water management of our operations. Only recycled or bio-degradable materials are used to create our garments.
At least 50% of Rakha's production is made by using Global Recycle Standard Certified (GRS) materials which are either made from pre-consumer or post-consumer wastes. Over 40% Global Organic Standard (GOTS) certified materials are used in our production.
Rakha tries to ensure that only mono-non mixed materials are used in order to increase the chances for the garments to either being recycled into new materials or composted safely in the landfill.
