Circularity at ba&sh
In a world where clothes are often considered disposable, the idea of a circular economy has become a necessity.
Our aim: to put strategies in place to reuse a product.
Our approach: at ba&sh, we have thought about the best ways to make clothes last, from their conception to their eventual recycling. We follow the recommendations of the famous butterfly diagram developed by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, a leading institution in this field.
Today: the establishment of rental and second-hand sales services, and the promotion of the maintenance and repair of our clothes are ba&sh's first actions in the field of the circular economy.
Wear, enjoy, start again.

The 6 pillars of our commitment
Frequently asked questions
ba&sh uses cotton, viscose and viscose alternatives, wool, mohair, alpaca, synthetic fibres (less than 10% of ba&sh's total materials by production volume).
We know that the production of our raw materials is ba&sh's biggest impact in terms of greenhouse gas emissions generated and strain on biodiversity.
Wherever possible, ba&sh sources certified fibres: cotton fibres that come from organic farming, wool from certified mills that guarantee animal welfare and sustainable pasture management, viscose whose wood pulp comes from sustainably managed forests, less impactful alternatives such as Tencel or EcoVero, recycled fibres for cashmere.
We carefully select the most rigorous international labels.
We have defined a framework to monitor and improve social performance in our supply chain.
Each partner must commit to our supplier code of conduct and comply with a number of ethical principles.
We conduct social audits of our entire supplier base. If non-conformities are identified, we support our suppliers in implementing corrective action plans to contribute as much as possible to the rapid and sustainable transformation of our industry.
Since August 2021, ba&sh is also a member of BSCI, a social compliance initiative. This tool provides a framework for monitoring and improving social performance in our supply chain: supplier mapping, early detection of problems, auditing, corrective actions and training. The aim is to protect workers' rights and improve their working conditions.
In stores, our bags and boxes are made of 80% recycled paper, they are 100% recyclable and FSC certified.
For e-commerce packaging, our packaging is made of 100% recycled cardboard, 100% recyclable and originally from sustainably managed forests (FSC). Since the beginning of 2021, we also offer REPACK, a reusable packaging solution. This packaging reduces greenhouse gas emissions by more than 80% compared to 100% recycled and 100% recyclable packaging.
To protect ba&sh parts during transport and in the warehouse, we use plastic bags. By 2020, our polybags are 60% recycled and 100% recyclable. By 2022, our polybags will be 100% recycled and 100% recyclable. We are aware that this is only the first step, and we are working to minimise our use of polybags and maximise their reuse in a closed loop.
