When in 2019, Gala González founded Am·lul the mission was very clear: change the fashion industry’s consumption habits by creating consciously made clothes. Our production and design philosophy is based on local and ethical values. We’re devoted to creating quality and appealing pieces to use for a long time. By offering drops of clothes, shoes and accessories we want to motivate people to adopt a more conscious and sustainable lifestyle.
PRODUCTION #MadeInSpainFor us, the Made in Spain concept is a real guarantee of know-how and quality. From the beginning, the key principle of Am·lul was to share and export what we Spanish do best. “If you care about the products you consume on a daily basis, from what you eat to skin routines, then you should also care about how your clothes are made and where they come from” — Gala González. All our production process is carried out in Spain, mostly in Barcelona. Five of the workshops we work with are in Barcelona. However, the knitwear is manufactured in A Coruña (north of Spain) and some of the clothes and accessories between Burgos and Madrid. Finally, t-shirts and sweatshirts are made in Portugal using premium cotton textiles.
SUPPLIERS Since the launch of Am·lul in 2019, our drops have been designed in collaboration with garments manufacturers in Spain, Italy and Portugal. We are constantly building a foundation of trusting relationships with talented suppliers. Investing in local and small suppliers in one of our main responsibilities as a brand –we use our power to help support these small partners in Italy, Spain and Portugal–. For our drops we have been working with a total of 36 suppliers.
Number of total suppliers per country:
Our garments are manufactured in collaboration with suppliers all over Spain. From A Coruña, Burgos, Madrid and Barcelona. Our main production is made in Barcelona –where we collaborate with 2 different workshops–. The circular clothes –t-shirts and sweatshirts– are made in Portugal using premium cotton. For the printing process of our clothes, we work with another supplier from Barcelona. Our tags and labels are made in collaboration with a supplier in Barcelona, whereas our packaging is produced in Málaga, in the south of Spain. We work with 19 different textile suppliers, all from Italy, Spain and Portugal. The rest of materials come from 9 different Spanish suppliers. All our suppliers work in countries where labor laws and market institutions conform to international standards. They are ensured with good working conditions, worker representation and development opportunities. We aim to ensure that the rights of workers in our supply and chain are upheld while collaborating with suppliers from Italy, Spain and Portugal.
Designing for a longer life and advancing the production of ethically and responsibly produced clothes is our priority in the designing process. There are 25 steps until the final product arrives to your home:
The fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world, just after the oil industry and produces 10% of all humanity’s carbon emissions. What’s more, 85% of all textiles are wasted every year, the equivalent of one garbage truck full of clothes is burned or dumped in a landfill every second. Carefully choosing the materials is one of our main priority in order to contribute to a sustainable process. Since the beginning, our textiles were made using sustainable materials. We work with either organic or recycled fabrics in order to create an environmental benefit. Our materials such as organic cotton or recycled linen have a lighter imprint on the environmental and are consciously produced in a more ethical or responsible manner. Our materials are: Cotton Wool Linen Cashmere Silk Mother of pearl Viscose Polyester Elastane Acrylic.
For achieving sustainability, we need to ensure that our products will continue to be useful for a lifetime. In order to do that, we carefully pick our fabrics and materials to produce product to last through years and be integrated in every season. Every piece of ours will become a lifetime treasure if you treat it with care. Please wash our clothes at a cool temperature and avoid drying when possible. Our philosophy motivates our customers to adopt a sustainable lifestyle. Changing habits and turning your consumption sustainable help develop a stronger awareness of what we really need.
