Sustainability - Make a difference
Skunkfunk’s effort to value the environmental and social impacts of fashion is in constant motion. “We began using organic cotton and later added other sustainable materials such as recycled polyester and linen. It is with the added strength of our GOTS certification that we can claim the benefits of our organic products with the peace of mind of a leading standard: from crop to fabric to finished garments and from environmental to social criteria. Our motto is “Make a Difference”, because we believe a sustainable and fun lifestyle is possible”.
