Comitted to providing unmatched customer experience, Orta offers value-added projects for its clients. Denim Academy, the denim training program, outlines the production process from A to Z. Denim Service , the garment manufacturing and laundry unit, aims to provide conceptually dedicated, faster product development-service approach.
To extend its social responsiveness, Orta has started to produce certified organic cotton denim fabrics as of September 2006.
In early 2010, Orta launched “Orta is Blue” project, to enhance and support sustainable perspectives, from industrial processes to fashion and lifestyle.
“Orta is Blue” project was launched with a great event in Los Angeles, featuring a lecture on denim by Ted Polhemus and the premiere of a short movie by Luca Babini, both exploring denim as a major element in our lives. The event also hosted two special jeans collections titled “Urban Utility” by Antonio di Battista, and “A Way of Life” by Claudio Toson, both crafted with Orta denim and inspired by a blue life.
Berlin Bread&Butter 2010 was the second destination of “Orta is Blue” project. With a more in-depth look at the product and technologies involved with sustainibility, and the inspirations of our designers, the project was showcased to an international audience. The next destination of “Orta is Blue” will be Japan at Japan Creation Center, Tokyo.
Orta currently works on Recycled Denim, DenimAg (Silver Denim), Sorona (corn-based yarn) and Organic Denim. G-Star RAW Sustainable programme which is recently launched in London is using Orta Nettle Denim as an exclusive product.
With its denim heritage and an eye on sustainibility, Orta Anadolu is commited to creating a great denim experience for all of us and our planet earth, sharing great discoveries on the way.
