CR7's manufacturer, JBS Textile Group A/S, has been CSR and sustainability focused for years, ensuring that the company's products are manufactured with respect for people and our environment.
JBS factories have been GOTS-certified and their cotton and wool certified-organic, for some time. With an increasing demand for bamboo clothing, JBS additionally secured an FSC certification for our bamboo products, early spring 2021. JBS Textile Group A/S is the first manufacturer in the world to produce a series of bamboo underwear where not only the raw materials are FSC-certified, but the entire supply chain. From bamboo plantation and viscose extraction, to spinning, knitting, and finished production of the underwear.
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified: wood and paper derived products bearing the FSC label are sourced from responsibly managed forests. This certification ensures that involved forestry operations support long-term ecological, social, and economic objectives by adherence to sustainable forest management standards. FSC certified products carry this label.
FSC certification guarantees that our bamboo comes from a plantation where the only bamboo that is felled is bamboo that the plantation can reproduce. In addition, the certification ensures that animals and plant life are protected, and proper conditions are in place for the people working on the plantation. The FSC certification therefore enables CR7 to claim that our bamboo is grown responsibly and sustainably.
Not only does CR7's raw bamboo material originate from sustainable FSC forestry, the entire process of extracting the viscose takes place in a closed-loop system where water and chemicals are repeatedly recycled and reused resulting in lower resource consumption and a reduced environmental impact.
CR7's bamboo underwear contain a carefully measured blend of 65% bamboo viscose, 30% organic cotton, and 5% elastane... a combination that yields incredibly soft, luxurious and strong underwear.
CR7's organic cotton underwear is made from 95% certified-organic cotton and 5% elastane for a smooth, comfortable fit, designed to work with bodies in motion.
CR7 uses FSC-certified paper materials for the majority of our retail packaging. Some travel bags and plastic packaging, are not FSC-certified.
