Mantis is an award-winning ethical clothing company with ranges for adults, kids and babies. Backed by a strong ethical ethos, they strive to create fashionable, high quality personalised garments that will be worn and loved for years to come, which is why at Garment Printing we love printing on their range!
Mantis follow a sustainable approach, manufacturing cotton-based garments which ultimately has a positive impact on the communities and on the environment in which they work. Crop care, water management and fair wages for them is firmly interlocked.
For over a decade they have been at the forefront of the ethical cotton industry and advocates of production in Africa. They promise to increase their use of sustainable fibres year on year, to only work with mills who have ETP (Effluent Treatment Plant), to avoid Uzbek cotton anywhere in their supply chain, to research more sustainable options for manufacture and to educate and inform their industry.
Mantis’ code of conduct is a shared commitment between them and their partner suppliers and factories, and is a set of standards that they live by. They also endeavour to protect and preserve the environment through: consideration of scarce resources, careful waste management, policy to reduce, reuse and recycle and using Effluent Treatment Plants to ensure clean water is returned to local water systems.
Mantis clothing has been credited by various organisations such as the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) – a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving working conditions in the supply chain. Mantis World works with suppliers that are BSCI compliant or equivalent. Mantis World is proud to be a member supporting the work of Textile Exchange (TE).
TE (formerly Organic Exchange) is a non-profit organisation operating internationally and is committed to the responsible expansion of textile sustainability across the global textile value chain. It is also credited by the GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) which is a guarantee of the organic status of textiles; from the harvesting of raw cotton to dispatch of the finished garments while ensuring all is done in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
The organic range of Mantis clothing is a big seller! Who doesn’t love good quality personalised garments that also contribute to helping the planet? A popular choice for screen printing is the organic favourite t-shirt, which comes in both men’s and women’s style. Made from 100% OCS certified organic cotton, its features include a 1×1 ribbed collar, taped neck, twin needle sleeves and hem with an unbranded size label at neckline.
