A constant presence in the outdoor industry since 1984, Concept III has been a leader in promoting environmental, socially responsible and humane practices and policies among their many suppliers around the world.
Most recently, Concept III resource Kingwhale Industries in Taiwan, introduced Low Impact Technology - a progressive new dyeing process that allows a significant savings of 15% less dyestuffs, 22% less electricity for heating and cooling, 50% less thermal energy to create steam and 60% less water over conventional dyeing.
“Merino may be a natural, sustainable fiber, but it is no less affected by ethical responsibility and environmental concerns than other materials,” says Chris Parkes. Concept III’s national sales manager. “We work with our partner resources to consideration of the earth and it’s inhabitants – always working towards minimizing the impact of textile production”, says Parkes.
Merino State already conforms to stringent ‘Woolmark’ and ’Merino Perform’ specifications, but now has been designated an accredited NewMerino preferred supplier that offers wool from NewMerino accredited growers and processors.
NewMerino is a brand of Australian merino wool grown by progressive Australian wool producers using sustainable farming systems, land management and holistic animal welfare standards. It is processed through a pro-active 'chain of custody' preserving provenance, authenticity, and quality attributes and verified by an independent supply chain manager. It assures fiber quality and performance but also sustainability of the production system, animal welfare certification, all with full transparency.
Begun six years ago the NewMerino designation is given only to the few resources that have demonstrated merit such as Merino State.
