Sustainable production of Jiu Jitsu gear and apparel in Europe.
In 2022 we have launched a re-shoring project by opening our own textile factory in Portugal. The project is focused on environmental sustainability, top quality and innovation, and production within the EU. Not only does this significantly reduce our CO footprint and create European jobs, but it also allows us to produce the best products for our customers.
Bringing back manufacturing
In the past decades, many European factories have been moved overseas, for the sake of maximized profits.
We believe it’s important to actually build stuff ourselves and have control over our own supply chain, and that’s why we want to bring back textile manufacturing knowledge and jobs to Europe.
We are currently the only company producing Jiu Jitsu uniforms in Europe.
By bringing part of our production to Europe, we no longer have to ship all our products on container ships or airplanes to get them here from overseas, before shipping the items to our customers.
While this reduces our CO2 footprint significantly, it also allows us to keep production in our own hands and produce under strict EU environmental and labor regulations.
At the same time we believe that people around the world should be able to have safe and rewarding jobs and businesses as well, while living in a clean environment. Therefore we will continue to work with partners in other countries to see how we can make a positive impact on people and their communities.
