Materials in consumer and b2b products
ECOLOGICAL AND ETHICAL PRODUCTION
Material is the base of everything we design. Most of our materials have formed in to trade marks at Globe Hope and they define a lot of the finished look of the product. Our products are made by processing already existing materials to new use. Among our materials is recycled textiles, industrial left over fabrics and various different recycled hard materials. The material range we use in production is very wide and most of it is purchased in Finland. An exception is army materials that are mainly from Sweden or Central Europe. Our factories are located in Finland and Estonia. Most of them are small 1-2 person factories and biggest is aout 15 people. Our sample design studio is located in Nummela.
In our production we strive to manufacture series prodctuin so that we can offer our customers a real alternative to a product made of new material. The manufacturing process of new product is difficult and acquires multiple steps. We strive to use materials as efficient as possible and that is why we try to exploit the original features of materials as well as possible. Sometimes to make a cohesive collection, we need to colour or print materials. We use as natural colouring methods as possible.
Army textiles are very versatile. They can handle hard use and washing. That is why we have been using army left over materials in our bags and accessories since the early days of Globe Hope. Army materials come from Sweden and Central Europe.
