REPEAT cashmere is part of THE REPEAT GROUP, which was established in 1978. In 2008, REPEAT opened its first flagship stores in Bern and Amsterdam. Since then, the company has expanded internationally and can now be found across the globe. REPEAT creates fashion to seduce your skin. The focus is on offering timeless styles with the highest possible quality and finish. In 1995, REPEAT cashmere became known as one of the first fashion brands to offer 100% cashmere at an affordable price. The luxury of fine wool became available to significantly more people thanks to the affordability made possible by REPEAT cashmere. The company is now one of Europe's leading labels for knitted apparel. REPEAT cashmere stands for modern styles, from head to toe. The fashion sets itself apart by combining the finest and best materials with unique designs of the highest quality. Premium materials such as cashmere, the finest wool and other high-quality yarns always remain affordable at REPEAT cashmere
Cashmere is the central element in our collections. Here at REPEAT, we have time and again demonstrated our passion for this premium material. With its simple elegance, cashmere is ideally suited for creating stylish and comfortable fashion. The time-intensive and intricate work required to acquire and process cashmere results in a material of the finest quality. The downy undercoat of cashmere goats is carefully combed out in order to obtain fine hair, which is ultimately processed into cashmere yarn. Fibers from the undercoat have a unique structure, providing cashmere with its incomparable softness and delicate sheen. In addition, wool from cashmere goats is significantly finer than sheep's wool, making it one of the world's most valuable natural fibers. Cashmere yarn is available in various qualities. Two-ply yarns are of higher quality than one-ply yarns because they are more flexible and resilient. They are also plusher and more resistant to tearing. Quality is further determined by the thickness and length of the selected fleece, as well as how much hair came from the outer coat. Finer and longer hair, primarily obtained from the undercoat, produces yarn with the best overall quality. For our REPEAT cashmere collections, we always use only the highest quality, most luxurious cashmere yarns, so that you can fully enjoy the incredible softness of cashmere. Cashmere is synonymous with warmth and cozy comfort. The material's exceptional thermal properties make sweaters, cardigans and accessories made of cashmere wool the perfect companions for cold days. And when processed into a delicate summer yarn, cashmere is also incredibly comfortable in warmer months. The exquisite quality of the cashmere wool used in our collections guarantees lasting satisfaction and alluring comfort.
REPEAT Cashmere, one of Europe’s leading brand for luxury knitwear, recognizes that sustainable fashion is the way forward and takes the lead in the cashmere knitwear industry by expanding its collection with fully certified organic and sustainable cashmere garments. The organic cashmere garments from REPEAT are certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard). GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. This certification guarantees that raw materials are organically sourced, and the factories only follow ecological and sustainable production processes. The latter is of importance, as clothing from organic materials can still be produced in a non-ecological way. Therefore, having both raw materials as well as production processes certified, is still very rare in the industry. Workers are not exposed to toxic chemicals when working with GOTScertified inputs and practices. In addition, the GOTS social criteria are based on the International Labor Organization (ILO) key conventions which include a ban on child and forced labor and include provisions such as having systems in place to prove they are addressing social concerns, such as grievances.
As an internationally active company, THE REPEAT GROUP is highly conscious of the social and ethical aspects of its business and takes into account the impact of its business activities on society and on the environment. Cultural diversity, tolerance, equal rights and respect are an important aspect of our corporate culture. We consider it essential that companies should accept social and ecological responsibility and we also expect our partner companies to share this conviction. We consider the ethical principles on which our decisions are based in the economic, ecological and social areas of activity to be the foundation of the future. Treating people, animals and the environment with respect, as well as protecting resources for future generations are the cornerstones of our actions. It is important to us that we should shape our social environment in a positive manner and ensure that our business actions have as little impact on the environment as possible. We constantly try to reduce the use of raw materials, energy, water and chemical additives by implementing the latest developments and technologies. We firmly believe that working conditions worldwide must comply with generally recognized human rights. It goes without saying that we categorically condemn the use of child and forced labour. Our employees and those of our suppliers work in a safe working environment. Health and safety is our highest priority. Thus, health and safety measures that meet international standards are implemented and strictly monitored. Employees have the right to form a trade union, to belong to a trade union and to hold joint negotiations. Salaries always conform with the statutory minimum requirements. Every employee is expected to receive a salary for the work rendered that is adequate to finance a dignified life, since this is an essential prerequisite for positive social development as a whole, which is very close to the heart of REPEAT. Our claim has always been that we offer our customers the highest level of quality at reasonable prices whilst always bearing in mind our corporate responsibility. This influences the corporate decisions that are made and our choice of suppliers and partners. We have strict criteria in this regard that are in line with our corporate principles. Environmental protection, fair working conditions and social justice are therefore also the prerequisites for our cooperation partners. The essential standards of behaviour for our business practices are consistently communicated to our employees. We sensitize them to behavioural requirements in the area of anti-corruption and ensure that they comply with these.
At REPEAT we believe in the proper treatment of animals. The wool used in REPEAT products comes from farms that treat their animals with respect. In addition, we insist that all our suppliers can verify the origins of their raw materials, so that the paper trail for the supply chain is clear and complete. For ethical reasons we do not use genuine skins or angora materials.
Responsible and future-oriented action is also our aim from an ecological perspective. Resources must be protected for future generations; therefore, we are acutely aware that they must be used sparingly at all levels. As a specialist in the area of highquality natural materials this begins in the meadow and the field. Compliance with local and national guidelines and laws are just the beginning. We are also extremely keen to reduce the use of chemical additives in the cultivation of the raw materials that we use and even to dispense with them altogether, where possible. Thus, you will always find fashionable tops in our collections that are made of organic cotton. In addition, we constantly monitor the use of water in production, and we are committed to reducing this further. Also, in the following production steps we are keen to keep the impact on people and nature as low as possible. In the production of our threads and yarns, in the textile fabrics and textile finishing, we aim to reduce the use of chemical substances and/or to dispense with them altogether. We work with leading manufacturers in the area of pure wool yarns and blends. The yarns are produced using modern technologies, always in compliance with ecological standards. The further development of these technologies and improvements in sustainability are continuously driven forward. The dying and finishing of the materials is also carried out in compliance with strict standards. Therefore, AZO colourants, which are known to be toxic, are not used in the manufacture of our products. Thanks to cutting edge technology and stringent safety requirements, we are able to meet our responsibility for employees and customers in this critical point of production, to ensure that their health is protected to the greatest degree possible. The responsible disposal of waste as well as a reduction in harmful CO2 emissions are further important aspects of our requirements. The constant investment in new technologies, the optimization of processes and the responsible use of valuable resources are of the highest importance to us and to our partners. We encourage all our suppliers to take their ecological responsibility seriously and to introduce corresponding measures.
