Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.
But what does it mean?
It presumes that resources are finite and should be used conservatively and wisely with a view to long-term priorities and consequences of the ways in which they are exploited.
In simpler terms, sustainability is for our children and our grandchildren, and the world we will leave them.
We do our best to have the most sustainable supply chain possible; from the raw material to when the product is delivered to your door.
That way, you can know exactly where the clothes your kids wear come from.
The design of our collections is made by our team in Montreal, Canada. The colors are meticulously selected by us. All our prints are made by local graphic artists. This makes the uniqueness of our 4KIDS clothes.
We oversee all the details to make sure our garments have the longest life possible. Proud promoters of ‘’slow fashion’’, we do production in small batches to avoid waste.
RAW MATERIALS AND FABRIC
How plastic bottles are transformed into 4KIDS clothing
Organic Cotton is better for the planet and for your child
Our products are made in India. But why India?
Over the years, India has emerged as one of the world leaders when it comes to plastic recycling. 80% of plastic PET bottles are recycled and reused, which is more than Japan, USA and Europe. By choosing India, we have an easier access to recycled plastic bottle threads that we use for our garments.
India is the home of sustainability's flag-bearer in the garment manufacturing sector. We had the chance to find our supplier, a family business since 1979, who shares the same values and beliefs as we do; build an environmentally responsible supply chain that leaves less of a trace for future generations.
