Fast fashion is becoming one of the 21st centuries biggest environmental concerns. Since we launched Sutsu as an ethical skate and surf brand back in 2004, we have always aimed to be accountable for our actions: we are part of this industry, and have felt the need to support change. Fast forward to 2021 and we are constantly looking for ways to improve: we now hold no stock and only produce a Sutsu garment when you purchase it from us. We only use organic cotton and or recycled fibres and our garments are built to go slow. Our T-shirts are made to be worn in (and out) and we are never prouder than when we see a design from 10 years ago walk past.
No Waste No sweat
One of our fundamental policies is that we do not hold stock. Advancements in production now allow us to make a product on demand, so there is no wastage. It’s a simple three-step journey: place your order, we receive it in our UK factory and get to work, and you receive your product(s) roughly 48 hours later fresh off the press (unless you’re ordering on a Friday afternoon & then it will be printed 1st thing Monday morning). Our supply chain is fully traceable, we only use Fair Wear Foundation suppliers, our garments are PETA approved vegan and OEKO_TEX Standard 100 and our inks are water based so they are safer for the environment.
We Save You Save
We don't hold stock, so we don't have a warehouse with costly overheads (and/or extra staff members). Our made-to-order service allows us to pass that saving onto you. You receive the same quality of garment – organic cotton, PETA approved, climate neutral - for almost 40% of the normal RRP. There is also no waste: because we only make a Sutsu T-Shirt when you buy it, no garments are left to gather dust somewhere. If it’s not being ordered, it doesn’t exist. If you want to learn more about our pricing just have a look at our product pages where we show you how much it costs us to make a T-Shirt!
What does P.O.D Pricing mean?
Print On Demand - We only print the garment when you order it. That means we hold no stock and so have less impact on the environment (less farming / carbon footprint etc.), it also means we reduce our storage overheads & carbon footprint here in London. Because our costs & impact are lower, we can offer you the garments at a lower price. We Save You Save.
Please note that this means delivery will take a little longer: In the UK it is approx. 3-5 days to be delivered.
