At The Painter’s Wife we are #MORETHANDOGS. We care for our dogs caring for our planet.
Our long-lasting products show our commitment to a sustainable fashion and make our personal contribution to climate protection. So far, since we launched our project back in 2017, we’ve have been working with high quality materials, most of them are of local origin, production and suppliance. Now we want to increase our commitment, and this begins with GREEN PAW, a project that focuses on sustainability in three main areas: Planet, Product and Community.
We care for our planet
Recycling: our packaging is made of recycled cardboard and we use FSC Certified hang tags on all our garments.
With our local production: 90% of our collection is produced in Galicia, our region, and in Portugal, only 100 km away from our HQ. This allows us to visit our suppliers regularly and to reduce the climate impact of our logistics operations.
We care for our product
With our raw materials: we choose durable materials that fit perfectly in your dog’s routine. We‘ve introduced more responsible fibers into our collection, finding the best versions of the two most used: polyester and cotton.
Cotton is one of our most important fibers. Our new cotton wear collection is made using GOTS certified Organic Cotton from natural seeds and grown without pesticides or other chemicals. As a result, organic cotton products are safer for both animal and human skin and our earth. Regular cotton requires more water, pesticides and degrades the soil over time.
Our new outwear is produced from GRS certified Recycled Polyester, obtained through the recycling and purification process of plastic waste collected from oceans, fishing nets, and textile fibre waste.
With our production techniques: n: we design and produce our collections for a long lasting living. Our toweling is produced with an eco-friendly technique that saves water and energy by drying quicker and reduces the consumption of cotton in the production process
We care for our community: collaborating with local associations. Part of the proceeds of our Green paw products will be dedicated to Yaracan, a local association that develops dog-assisted intervention programs for children and the elderly.
The Painter’s Wife clothing and accessories that comply to the specifications just mentioned will be labeled with the Green Paw label, distinguishing those products that we produce using technology and raw materials that help us to reduce the environmental impact of our products.
