SUSTAINABLY CRAFTED IN LOS ANGELES
Betro Simone is a modern brand with an old fashioned way of making clothing. We took a look at how today’s clothes are made and set out to do better. Better for the environment, the workers, and the customer. It’s not easy, it’s not fast, and it’s not cheap. But nothing worth doing is.
Here are some of the ways we’re crafting high-quality pieces with less impact on the earth.
WE KEEP IT LOCAL
Here’s what makes us different. Our entire process happens in one Los Angeles neighborhood. This is where we loom the fabric from high-quality, sustainable materials, before it goes to the factory where we design the clothes, create the patterns, sew the garments, and place them in a box that gets shipped to your door.
Our headquarters is a clothing factory, a design atelier, occasional photo shoot location and hangout spot for our tight knit staff. Keeping it local means we leave a much smaller footprint on the earth.
Less shipping means less carbon. We create the fabric right here in Los Angeles, so instead of a long, fuel-burning trip across the ocean, it comes in from a mill right down the street where we manufacture it.
QUALITY FOR THE LONG TERM
The Betro garment isn’t a mass market good, made to be tossed aside once the season changes. We’re here for a good time, and for a long time. Pick a few key pieces and let them live in your wardrobe—not the landfill—for years to come.
Our production process is an open book. It’s not hard to understand our approach, since we keep it small and simple in our LA factory. Check us out on social media to get a look inside our factory, meet our team and learn more about what makes us different.
OUR SUSTAINABILITY GOALS FOR 2023
As we grow, we’re looking to create a smaller footprint. With strategic sustainabiility goals that focus on recycling, smart sourcing of matierals and less energy use, we’re aiming for 2023 that feels as good as it looks.
- 1. Convert to milling fabrics from fibers with smaller carbon footprints, including recycled materials.
- 2. Create a closed loop cycle by recycling our fabric scraps into new materials.
- 3. Reduce use of spandex, which cannot be recycled.
- 4. Switch to recycled packaging and shipping materials.
- 5. Continue to use durable, long lasting materials to create garments
