Founded in 2012, Everest Isles clothing is committed to eliminating waste and helping the environment through culture, design and transparency.
All our practices are clear as water and aimed at benefiting the planet - from the modern, timeless look of our garments to their materials, production, and distribution.
ECONYL® regenerated nylon
Manufactured in Italy, ECONYL® is made out of 100% regenerated nylon -which means that no virgin materials are used in its production. It actually rescues waste from oceans and landfills like ghost fishing nets, carpet fluff, and fabric scraps. ECONYL® reduces the global warming impact by up to 80% when compared to nylon made from oil. As an extra plus, ECONYL® is Oeko-Tex certified which ensures that there are no hazardous chemicals used in dyeing the fabric. It is produced within a closed loop, which means it can be recycled infinitely without loss of quality.
Increasing our connection to the worlds’ oceans, we are now using SeaCell™ fabrics. SeaCell™ is produced using the Lyocell process, and the result is extremely breathable and unbelievably soft. This cutting edge fabric is produced exclusively from sustainable raw materials – wood and seaweed – using methods that save both energy and resources and is carbon neutral and completely biodegradable. Production takes place in a closed loop with no chemicals released as waste.
Harvesting of the seaweed is a gentle, selective and, most importantly, sustainable process. It removes only the part of the seaweed that is able to regenerate. The seaweed is entirely untreated and all its ecological value is retained.
At Everest Isles we have used BLUESIGN® fabrics since our inception in 2012. BLUESIGN® certified dyeing facilities only use safe input chemicals, monitor their air and water emissions and ensure worker safety so that the dyed fabric is safe for the end user, workers and the environment.
Organic GOTS Cottons
Our organic cotton is processed using Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) approved inks and dyes, which are free from chlorine bleach, toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde and aromatic solvents. This process is free from harmful substances and ensures sustainable use and treatment of water. We use GOTS approved washes for our organic cotton garments from lightweight jersey to denim.
Responsibly Sourced Trims
Our buttons are made in Italy from recycled acetate. Our zippers are made in Japan from recycled post consumer waste. Metal components are stainless steel with as little finish as possible. Our cordage and ribbons are recycled Nylon.

We believe that the key to sustainability is to create the highest quality and longest lasting products possible, but that doesnt include our packaging. Our hang tags, box inserts, tubes and bands are made from an innovative wood based paper that dissolves instantly in water, leaving no waste for the landfill or future generations. All of our paper products are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) approved. FSC ensures forests are managed in a way that takes care of the animals and plants who inhabit it, and the workers and local communities who rely on forests. All our packaging is printed with soy-based and petroleum-free inks & designed to be entirely recyclable or biodegradable. Made with ECONYL®
— Salvaged Fishing Nets and Ocean Waste regenerated into the most luxurious swim fabric available.
Our worst case scenario would be to have our product end up in a landfill. Any of our ECONYL® based products can be returned to us for a voucher of 25% off your next purchase from our site. Currently we are working on a way to regenerate the products into new nylon for a fully closed loop, circular process. Until that time we will deconstruct and store the product so it doesn’t go to waste. Please email email@example.com for additional requirements and details.
Consider repair before replacing your garment. For minor damages, we offer complimentary repairs. This is about valuing and extending the life of the garment. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for repair offering or advice.
This service applies to Everest Isles garments only and excludes tailoring and alterations. Garments must be clean and are subject to evaluation prior to accepting repair. We cannot repair large rips, fabric flaws, pills or marked garments. Repairs are done by hand and may require up to 14 working days for completion.
We believe that people are part of the planet - so we are committed to making more sustainable clothes in places that treat workers well. We partner with manufacturers that are committed to reducing environmental impact and providing good conditions for the people in the facility. Our partners share a common vision of sustainability, accountability, and transparency
