Many of us are becoming more socially conscious and aware about the world we live in now, more than ever! Its paramount that we take a closer look at the clothing we wear everyday. Collectively we need to change our standards of consumption and educate people in ways to "Dress Healthy".
The global textile industry is the second largest pollution-based industry in the world, spinning, weaving and industrial manufacture undermine air quality. Printing and dyeing technologies consume a tremendous amount of water and chemicals and release numerous hazardous agents into the earth's atmosphere that are particularly harmful to our health.
Sustainable fashion is the future! That's why SkyLyfe Inc. is taking steps to make sure we're part of the movement. We only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Our printing partner's state-of-the-art printing tech creates almost no waste-waters and uses less energy.
Production of the products
Each product you see in our catalog is made on-demand—once you place an order, we produce it specifically for you. This allows us to avoid overproduction and textile waste, and we pride ourselves on being part of the sustainable fashion movement.
We have facilities on both US coasts—in Charlotte, North Carolina and Los Angeles, California—to route orders where we can fulfill and ship them as fast as possible.
There's a fulfillment center in Mexico, and one in Latvia for our European orders as well. To improve order fulfillment in Europe, we’ve operating a facility in Spain.

Printing tech and materials
Our clothing is printed with a variety of printing methods. The printing tech we use is made with sustainability in mind, and our DTG printers use almost zero wastewater and less energy, lowering our carbon footprint.
NEW FASHION SYSTEM!
The textile industry is also the second largest consumer of water behind oil. By 2030, the demand for water will exceed the supply by 40% and cause more pollution to our land, water, and air. Additional, today's clothing (a $7 trillion/year industry) is manufactured using an astounding 8,000 synthetic chemicals. For a half-century skin and chemicals have been interacting creating problems like infertility, respiratory diseases, contact dermatitis, and cancer.This is a new kind of sustainable fashion system that can create value for people, planet, and profit. This system can also promote greater product satisfaction through better quality and longer- lasting products. It can promote well-being and happiness through less materialistic consumption, e.g. by offering experiences through sharing, swapping, lending, updating or do-it-yourself fashion. We can learn to invest in higher quality and more expensive products, use them longer, own less, and take good care of our possessions. Additionally, such a system can mean more social justice and better working conditions for textile factory workers, while slowing the system it is possible to increase the end price of the product and invest in better factories. For the environment through cleaner production and perhaps even less industrial production and waste, the benefits for slower cycles are clear. For businesses new models to make profit in an environmentally beneficial way have to be created.
Sustainable fashion, responsible choices
It’s our goal to become more sustainable, and we’re learning every step of the way.
