DESIGN, FABRICS & MATERIALS

Can Pep Rey Classics

Our design team has worked on keeping 30% of the collection our Classic items: Unisex T-shirt, Classic Sweatshirt. This helps our consumers build their wardrobe essentials with quality garments that will last a lifetime. The collections are designed with the longevity of each garment in mind.

Responsible materials

Since 2020 we have been focusing on the exclusive use of natural fibers. 

In some cases the use of synthetic materials exceeded our set goals this year, which is partly due to the use of deadstock materials with these compositions and in some cases due to superior longevity of the garments due to these compositions. We recognize a need for further improvement in the coming year.

Our collections, in general, result from utilizing 95% natural fibers.

Our collections of 2023 were made up of the following fabric compositions:

Pure Natural fibres:

  • Cotton
  • Organic Cotton
  • Viscose Ecovero
  • Virgin Wool

Mixed Natural fibres:

  • Viscose / Cotton
  • Cotton / Modal
  • Cotton / Cupro / Modal
  • Virgin Wool / Cashmere
  • Cotton / Silk

Natural with synthetic:

  • Cotton/ Elastane (*2%)
  • Viscose/ Virgin Wool/ Elastane (*5%)
  • Mohair / Wool / Nylon
  • Cupro / Lino / Cotton
  • Lyocell / Cotton
  • Lyocell / Wool

* The inclusion of a small percentage of synthetic material is often done to enhance the elasticity of a fabric or product.

Reuse, Reduce

Reused old stock

We repurposed our existing inventory of Classic Can Pep Rey T-shirts and Sweatshirts that were considered deadstock to create fresh and imaginative graphics. This process was conducted without generating any waste; instead, it involved sorting through the stockroom and conceiving designs to imbue old garments with new significance. The outcome was a distinctive capsule collection we named 'No Hay Prisa Es Ibiza.' Furthermore, for our Pop Ups, we collaborated with Marlon Wobst in Berlin and with the artist Emily in Düsseldorf with these kind of products. 

Pre-order production

For our pre-order during the Spring/Summer '23 collection, we utilized a light and airy 100% Viscose Ecovero, to craft a small capsule. The pre order process allowed us to anticipate demand before making any purchases. 

Deadstock fabrics for production

Additionally, within the same collection, we incorporated deadstock fabric for two different types of pieces: one set with a blend of 50% Cotton and 50% Modal, and the other composed of 75% Cotton and 25% Silk.

Upcycling

The SS24 "La Cortina" collection marked our initial venture into upcycling existing textiles into garments. We acquired second-hand curtains and skillfully crafted them into a distinctive dress and top. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, as no two curtains are alike. This not only provides individuality for the buyer but also reduces environmental impact, as we avoid the need to procure new raw materials.

PACKAGING


We aim to treat our packaging in a closed loop. All our labels, bags and boxes, are made of natural or recycled materials and contain environmental certifications. 

Compostable bags

Our garment bag is made from 95% plant-based PE. This bag is derived from sugarcane, not from oil. We re-use our garment bags for each production. (made in Italy)

Due to supply chain issues, part of the production of this year was packaged in garment bags made from 80% recycled post-consumer polyethylene. (made in Italy)

The plastic waste is reused without releasing in the environment. Both of them are recyclable like any PET bottle.

Due to the added zip blog we managed to reuse all bags we collected from our online store sales for two entire production.

Sustainable labels

- Labels: recycled polyester (made in Spain)

- Hangtags: Recycled paper and vegetable print (made in Spain)

Shipment Labels

Compostable labels made from natural agricultural waste fibre and the adhesive is compostable acrylic derived from 63% renewable resources; sugar based.

Packed in house

The orders are packed in house to ensure quality and control the accuracy and footprint
of shipping.

Recycled Boxes

Our new and improved online shop boxes are made from recycled paper - produced from recycled cardboard that’s FSC certified ®, with a resealable option for returns. We always reuse boxes for production, sampling and delivery. (made in Poland)

Environmentally Friendly Scotch Tape

The scotch tape used is mainly for larger orders to stores or customers. This year, we invested in a sustainable self-adhesive tape called Monta Biopack®. This tape meets the requirements of composting, biodegradation, ecotoxicity and eco-friendly material characteristics. (Made in Netherlands)

PROJECTS

Animales del Alma

We have an ongoing collaboration with Animales del Alma, a non-profit animal rescue centre based in Ibiza. We sold t-shirts with 100% of the profits being donated to the centre. We organized a fundraising event during our summer pop up.

Visions for Children

We organized a fundraising dinner, with German chef Szuszanna Toth, for Visions For Children e.V., a non-profit organization located in Hamburg, Germany. Their committed mission is to ensure that underprivileged children in conflict zones have access to quality education and improved learning conditions. All the proceeds from the event will be allocated to the Block Haye Hawayee Middle School project in Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan. Your participation in this noteworthy event plays a vital role in offering these deserving children an opportunity for a brighter future through education. We raised 650€ for the organisation while covering all costs.

Ecogots

Hosting pop-up events featuring eco-friendly practices, such as the use of reusable cups crafted from wheat-based materials - promoting sustainability and reducing single-use plastic waste.

PHILOSOPHY

Conscious purchasing

We advocate for conscious purchasing by avoiding massive discounts and participating in "Green Friday" instead of Black Friday. Through this initiative, we share environmental facts and tips on our Magazine and Social Media. Rather than promoting the cycle of a sale model, we offer our loyal customers and community annual discount codes.


Garment Care

All garments in our collections are designed with longevity in mind. We have a section on our website where we share the tools on how to make our pieces last as long as they were crafted to.

Sustainable Practices In-house

We prioritise sustainability within our team by reusing and sharing office supplies. Our mission includes educating each other about current climate issues and fostering discussions during office hours.


Pre-order Capsule Collections

We introduced a Pre-Order capsule collection for our Spring Summer 2023 Collection. Pre-orders let customers reserve items before they're released, making the shopping experience personal and helping avoid excess inventory. Pre-orders also support conscious consumerism, allowing customers to align their choices with their values. In summary, pre-orders are a shared experience, blending excitement, sustainability, and customer involvement for a more thoughtful shopping journey.


FUTURE

  • Enhance the utilization of deadstock fabrics in our latest collections to promote sustainable practices in the fashion industry and avoid further unnecessary creation of waste.  

  • Elevate the incorporation of upcycled materials to a higher extent within our collections, emphasizing the value of repurposing and minimizing waste. 

  • Further improvement of packaging and branding elements to reduce waste. 

  • Continue the use of deadstock pieces for collaborative projects

  • Mitigate the environmental footprint associated with production by adopting a more centralized approach, thereby reducing the shipping impact.

Every step counts. Our team is committed to educating, informing and researching making the path towards changing the fashion industry possible. You can count on us, we’re doing our best!

For any questions or suggestions we are happy to hear from you.
