We aim for every aspect of production, from the cotton growers in India to the manufacturing in UK to be traceable, tested and controlled for quality.
Thunderpants is a fun and creative business, but the realities of the garment industry can be harsh on both the people involved and the environment. We would like to ensure that we are doing all that we can to improve the lives of everyone involved, at the same time ensuring minimum impact on the environment. To do this we are constantly striving for the most sustainable options possible.
People Before Profit
Empowering people, being fair and supporting communities are essential values of the Thunderpants culture. Maintaining open, honest, and respectful relationships with staff, suppliers, manufacturers and customers are key to our core values.
We use Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified cotton. Grown without the use of any synthetic chemicals such as fertilisers or pesticides and never uses GMO seeds, azo dyes, heavy metals, formaldehyde or chlorine, making it the best option for farmers, workers, wearers and entire eco-systems.
We want to keep as much of Thunderpants production in the UK as we possibly can, supporting small UK-based operators at every opportunity. We have a small amount of stock from New Zealand and then all our Thunderpants will be sewn up in the North of England from the end of the month!
