Every Thread Matters

At Tonlé, they see fashion differently – from the way it’s made to the way it’s worn. They see it as encouraging the unique in everyone who touches their clothing, from maker to wearer.

 

Tonlé is a zero waste, ethical fashion brand on a big mission, to reduce waste generated by larger factories and change the way business is done in the fashion industry. Their process starts with scrap waste sourced from mass clothing manufacturers. Using every last thread, they create handmade clothing and accessories signed by their Cambodian makers. Their family of employees is made up of individuals with spirit, drive and dreams. Together, they’ve built a supportive environment where everyone expresses themselves freely, learns new skills, and gains confidence in what they do. They believe style is more than what you wear – it’s what you choose to be a part of. 

The Impact Your Purchases From Tonlé Make

At Tonlé, when they say every thread matters, they mean it. From the people who work on your clothing to using every single scrap of fabric that comes through their workshop, they care about every step in the process of getting a piece of clothing to your hands, and each person who touches it along the way. We've partnered with Greenstory to help quantify the impact of your purchases with Tonlé, which you can now see on each product page. Here is how they calculated the impact.

 

Conventional Clothing:

Producing a 220 gram T-Shirt in a conventional manner uses the following avoidable resources:

  • 2,700 litres of water, the average amount a person drinks over three years
  • 151.2g (1/3 lb) of chemicals and pesticides
  • approximately 6 kilograms of carbon for manufacturing alone, almost 30 times the final weight of the t-shirt itself.

Creating cloth from scratch requires agriculture, fabric production and dyeing. These stages have massive CO2 emissions, water consumption, pesticides, and harmful chemicals associated with them. Their zero waste process of making clothing from factory scraps eliminates these steps and avoids CO2 emissions, unnecessary water usage, and harmful pollution from dying and pesticides. Using recycled packaging and avoiding the use of single use plastics also significantly cuts back on their carbon footprint, and even reduces the shipping footprint because items can be packed more tightly.
