Wolven is about the community it creates: People who care about the earth coming together. We share an appreciation for art, celebrate differences, and strengthen the bonds between one another. By making sustainable choices and honoring the earth, we move forward.
What Wolven Believes In
Sustainability — Diversity — Body Positivity — Creativity/Artistic Appreciation
The founders are artists, and create patterns on their canvasses before transferring them to designs. This is a multi-step process, which includes gathering inspiration from our cultures and surrounding, and in many cases, taking photos. Their inspirations vary from the plants around us to patterns on their family member’s henna (South Asian natural dye used for temporary body art), to wilderness adventures.
The Design Process
Every product begins as a canvas. Inspiration is found everywhere — from a quick photo snapped while on a hike to the henna used in family celebrations — and used in creative pattern making. They then adapt their creations to the ebb and flow of the human body and the clothes that adorn it.
Wolven garments are made with OEKO-TEX certified Recycled P.E.T fabric (RPET), a fabric made from recycled plastic water bottles. The OEKO-TEX certification ensures that the material is free of harmful and toxic chemicals. Over 6.4 million tonnes of plastic trash enters the world’s oceans each year. RPET creates a second life for plastics, helping to keep plastic out of our planet’s delicate ecosystems.
One Wolven legging creates new value for 27 old water bottles. Every purchase of a Wolven legging can prevent 27 water bottles from ever entering our oceans. You’re wearing the proof, and we have that verified by OEKO TEX and GRS.
We care about the conditions in which our clothing is made and demand that our partners abide by strict codes of conduct for health and safety, wages, working hours, child labor, and more. In addition to our own due-diligence, our suppliers are all independently certified.
The STANDARD 100 label from OEKO-TEX certifies that every component of our garments has been tested for harmful substances, and that the garments are completely harmless to human health.
Intertek’s Workplace Conditions Assessment (WCA) program provides transparency in the supply chain, ensuring responsible social and labor conditions, health and safety standards, environment, and business practices.
The Global Recycle Standard (GRS) sets requirements that ensure accurate claims for recycled materials and responsible social, environmental, and chemical practices throughout production.
