Sustainability

IT ALL STARTS WITH US, COLLECTIVELY!

While we know there is still a lot to learn, J-Min Collections understands that sustainability is a necessity for us to move forward. As a young brand, we feel responsible for helping the industry transition from fast fashion to sustainable fashion. That is implementing sustainable practices and to us that means, involving our customers and everyone else in our production process, promoting our well-being, lessening the suffering of others while eliminating waste. Here's how we work:

WE ONLY PRODUCE GARMENTS YOU WANT CREATED

1

Our process begins with the select artists we work with. Thanks to their passion and professionalism, they create prints for our garments that guarantee our customers unique collections. Through a 'voting' process, our customers can choose prints from their top designs.

2

We provide our customers with a selection of the most popular abd best-selling designs & styles recommended by our manufacturer and professionals within the industry to also pick from.

3

Our founder, J-Min works along side with the manufacturer (includes the pattern makers and technical artists) to provide the possibilities (including fabric) of each collection.

4

Our customers create the final look!

J-Min creates samples in which, they are wear-tested both, personally and by models and fitness professionals. We adjust and make iterations as needed so we produce the perfect collection that is both fashionable and functional. That way, we guarantee everyone also finds their athleisure looks they truly value.

OUR FABRICS & MINIMAL TO ZERO-WASTE APPROACH

Through our 'voting' process, manufacturing garments with the highest votes, and taking pre-orders, we are able to minimize and practice a zero-waste approach.

We use ECONYL® - Carvico Vita Power for our plain color blocks that make up majority of our garments. Carvico Vita Power is composed of 78% Recycled Polyamide and 22% Elastane. 

Due to the nature of sustainable fibers and limited stock range, our art blocks are non-sustainable and are digitally printed on Super Matt Polyester, Carvico Aspen Heavy. Carvico Aspen Heavy is composed of 82% Polyester and 18% Elastane. 

Our basic collections are fully composed of sustainable ECONYL® techno fabrics. 

WE PUT PEOPLE FIRST

We value and enjoy working with our models, photographers, artists, artistic athletes, promoting their story and journey through their artistry. We make sure they directly (without a third-party) benefit from what they produce for us.

We also work with a trusted supplier based in Bali, Indonesia to work with who also have the same vision as us - continuously reducing their environmental footprints and supporting their local community.

The fabrics they use are OEKO-TEX & Global Recycled Standard Certified. They have also been tested for quality at the manufacturing plant. Their workplace provides exceptional working conditions where the team is paid above award wages. They also support their local community, where every order with them supports grassroot organizations that advance women’s education and the environment; The ROLE Foundation & Bali Wise. In addition, they implement business development and hiring practices that raise the standards for women, health and income in the industry.

YOUR HEALTH IN MIND

We wear leggings between 4-6 hours on average, J-Min Collections spent over a year finding and researching fabrics that are not only safe for the environment but are also good for the skin.

We have found that traditional or synthetic fabrics such as Polyester, Nylon, Rayon, Spandex may cause itching and irritants to the skin known as textile contact dermatitis after worn for longer periods of time.

We use Econyl yarns that are safe for the skin and also protects you from the sun.

ECONYL® is a product of an Italian firm Aquafil. ECONYL® is a regenerated High End Nylon that is entirely made from pre-post consumer Nylon landfills and ocean waste. These include old carpets from landfills, fishing nets and ‘ghost nets’ (abandoned nets from fishermen) from the ocean, industrial waste and fabric scraps from clothing manufacturing companies.
