OUR STORY & WORK ETHIC.
The New Denim Project is the newest and most innovative product line at Iris Textiles until today. We are an industrial textile group, proudly operating since 1956 in Guatemala. Thanks to the efforts of various generations, we have continued to evolve until today in the manufacture of 100% sustainable eco-cotton yarn, fabrics, garments and accessories. The company's main objective has been to unite technology and ecology in the production of textiles in order to maintain our commitment to quality and remain environmentally responsible and competitive in the market.
Although our main focus has long been environmental responsibility, we believe social compliance is equally as important. Our workplace standards are 100% compliant to Guatemala’s local laws and regulations. We count with our own Code of Conduct since the founding of the factory. At Iris Textiles, we have a zero tolerance policy towards child labor, forced labor, discrimination, harrassment and abuse. We are committed to providing an unconditionally healthy and secure work environment for all employees- as well as freedom of association and fair labor practices.
We are proud to join the #FashionRevolution movement- making every area of our operation completely transparent. Please follow us on social media to get to know and learn about the hands, minds and spirits behind all of our textile products.
"The goal of upcycling is a delightfully diverse, safe, healthy, and just world with clean air, water, soil, and power—economically, equitably, ecologically, and elegantly enjoyed."
