We at Famme want to lead the way in sustainability and environmentally friendly production in women's fashion and training clothes. We do this by making sure that our suppliers are exemplary in sustainable production, so that our materials and products are produced in an environmentally friendly and responsible manner.

The yarn in our clothes is produced byFulgar, an Italian company which in 2009 became the first producer of Poliyamide 6.6 to achieve the EU Ecolabel for environmentally friendly competence and performance in terms of the environmental impact throughout the product's life cycle. Their sustainable measures include setting up an environmentally friendly production system, an internally designed water management system that contributes to optimal water use for cooling air and equipment and recycling over 63% of the materials during the production cycle. We want to be open about who our suppliers are and how our products are produced, which is why we have created this article to give you an insight into how we have progressed to become a sustainable brand.
