Mikk-Line A/S’ sustainable initiatives
We have established many sustainable initiatives in the production:
- Environmentally friendly impregnation of outerwear, Bionic-Finish ® ECO (Mikk-Line and Mikk-Line RED)
- Rainwear made of recycled plastic (Mikk-Line RED)
- GOTS – a large part of the PAPFAR collection is GOTS certified
- Organic cotton – PAPFAR uses organic cotton
- Good animal welfare (PAPFAR)
Outerwear from Mikk-Line RED has been treated with BIONIC-FINISH® ECO, which is an environmentally friendly impregnation. The water resistant impregnation is biodegradable, which means that it is harmless to the environment. There are no fluorine substances in our products.
In spring 2020, the whole Mikk-Line product line will become BIONIC-FINISH® ECO certified.
We have released an environmentally friendly rainwear collection as part of the Mikk-Line RED product line. The rainwear is made of recycled plastic bottles.
We spend 80% less energy by making rainwear from recycled plastic compared to ordinary rainwear made from polyester and oil.
The environmentally friendly rainwear is of a very high quality and feels just as soft as any other rainwear.

GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard and is a certification for organic clothing. The certification guarantees an environmentally friendly and socially responsible production throughout the entire supply chain. Therefore unhealthy and environmentally harmful chemicals are strictly prohibited.
GOTS also makes sure that the people who have produced the clothing receive proper payment.
We use organic cotton in our PAPFAR collection because it is grown without any use of toxic chemicals and fertilizers. It is a healthy choice for children, farmers and the environment.

GOOD ANIMAL WELFARE
We use soft high quality wool for all our wool products from Mikk-Line, PAPFAR and MOVE. All our wool comes from manufacturers who support animal welfare and make sure that their animals are treated well.
