Sandqvist, Spring 2020

Alway beautifully designed and manufactured the Sandqvist Collection for Spring 2020 has raised the bar even further with many lines in the collection being officially rated as fully 'Vegan'. 

With a meticulous focus on every facet of their business and a push towards the highest levels of sustainability, Sandqvist have shown that it isn't necessary to compromise on the efficacy of a product or designer appeal in order to attain the highest standards.

The Sandqvist formula consists of five key pillars:

- Organic cotton

- Recycled materials

- Supply chain transparency

- Fair working conditions

- Long-lasting products

Some materials used in manufacturing a Sandqvist product and why

Recycled polyester is produced using post-consumer waste like PET-bottles. This process means the fabric gives a new lease of life to waste material that is not naturally biodegradable.

Organic cotton is grown without chemical pesticides, artificial fertilizers and genetically modified crops. All Sandqvist’s canvas products are constructed from organic cotton produced on a small scale by self-sufficient farmers in Adilabad, India. We choose to work directly with the farmers to ensure we have the highest quality products and provide fair wages and good working conditions for the local community.


Organic cotton saves almost half of all Co2 produced when being grown in comparison to conventional cotton. The growing and farming of organic cotton contributes to the biodiversity and health of the ecosystems, as well as using less water and improving the quality of soil in the area.


Recycled polyester uses less natural resources like water, energy and fossil fuels than regular polyester. Despite this, recycled polyester still has many of the same characteristics as virgin polyester, including great durability and a scuff-free finish.

Recycled Nylon is made using post-industry waste from discarded nylon-based products. Sandqvist’s recycled nylon is made from MIPAN regen, the world’s first recycled nylon filament yarn made for textile usage. Alongside being eco-friendly, the recycled nylon fibres are strong, lightweight and durable.


Recycled nylon uses fewer resources like water, energy and fossil fuels, than regular nylon when being produced. Despite this, recycled nylon has the same characteristics as regular nylon, including an excellent strength to weight ratio and impressive durability.

Sandqvist is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation and adheres to the Fair Wear Conditions Code of Labour to ensure their products are made under fair conditions in a safe environment
