Sustainable fashion is our future! That’s why Brassplayer is taking steps to make sure we’re part of the movement. We only produce items we get an order for, avoiding textile waste from overproduction. Our printing-partner’s state-of-the-art printing tech creates almost no wastewaters and uses less energy.
Each product you see in our catalog is made on-demand—once you place an order, we produce it specifically for you. This allows us to avoid overproduction and textilewaste, and we pride ourselves on being part of the sustainable fashion movement.
Did you know that each of our products is made just for you? We only produce the product when we receive your order for it, avoiding textilewaste. So forget about mass-produced clothing and buy your unique one-off from us!
Our clothing is printed with the direct-to-garment(DTG) printing method. The printing tech we use is made with sustainability in mind, and our DTG printers use almost zero wastewater and less energy, lowering our carbon footprint.
The inks we use for printing are water-based and free of harmful chemicals. We take care to dispose of any left-over ink according to the inks upplier guidelines, so we’re not harming the environment.
Each product you see in our catalog is made on-demand, which means once you place the order, we start working to get it to you. It takes time for us to create and send out the product, but making each order on-demand allows us to avoid overproduction. This way we’re all part of the sustainable fashion movement.

We’re exploring ways to become more environmentally conscious while giving you quality products that last. We want to give you reliable, quality products that are also kind to the planet. Our eco-friendly product collection is growing along with the needs of our environmentally-conscious customers. One of our goals for 2020 is to expand our eco-friendly product catalog. We’re also working on optimizing our cut & sew production line to reduce the leftover fabric scraps. Each product we add to our shop is thoroughly tested to ensure high quality. To make sure the products last long, we do durability, wash, and wear tests. We offer a variety of garments, some from our W.R.A.P. certified supplier Bella + Canvas that also manufactures organic cotton t-shirts. We trust our suppliers to deliver high-quality products that’ll last many washes, keeping the colors vibrant and elasticity great. On top of that, we conduct our own quality checks when launching every new product to ensure print quality and material durability. Most of the printers we use in production are energy-efficient: they use less electricity, water, and chemicals than standard industry printers. The main printing method we use is DTG (direct-to-garment), a more sustainable choice over other apparel printing methods, like screen printing.
DTG works with inkjet technology: the water-based ink is sprayed onto the garment, helping the ink soak in better. DTG has no color count, and this printing method works well even for the most elaborate designs.
We’re working on becoming kinder to the planet we all share, providing high-quality products and giving our world and people growth opportunities.Sustainable fashion, responsible choices. It’s our goal to become more sustainable, and we’re learning every step of the way. Made-to-order is making a difference in traditional retail and taking a step towards sustainable and responsible fashion production. When choosing made-to-order services like Brassplayer, products get printed only when a customer buys them.In traditional made-to-sell retail stores, products are made in large quantities and often exceed market demand. Around 85% of all textiles produced by the fashion industry end up in landfills, making it a major contributor to environmental damage. By choosing us, you give the world and the people a more sustainable fashion choice as well as more product choices—no more settling for mass-produced apparel. Instead, we deliver your products with a personal touch. It doesn’t matter if you want a t-shirt, phone case, or a pair of leggings. Since we fulfill our products only when a customer buys them and we produce less waste than traditional made-to-sell retail stores, our closet’s clean. Brassplayer products are created using the made-to-order production approach. We warehouse only the products customers actually want and don’t throw our leftover stock into landfills.
We’re learning to reduce the amount of produced waste, so we’re working on improving our packaging—from February 2020, we’ve saved almost 3.5 US tons (3,222 kg) of plastic. We also donate damaged and returned products to local charities.We have facilities on both US coasts—in Charlotte, North Carolina and Los Angeles, California—to route orders where we can fulfill and ship them as fast as possible.There’s a fulfillment center in Mexico, and one in Latvia for our European orders as well. To improve order fulfillment in Europe, we’ve opened a facility in Spain. We’re looking into new ways to make the best of our resources and reduce the CO2 produced when transporting orders, therefore we’ve opened our fulfillment centers close to the customers.
