The PARACHRON DIFFERENCE
We design high quality, comfortable clothing and fashion accessories for the athleisure and activewear communities. Our processes, quality standards, and people are what make our products exceptional.
'On Demand' Manufacturing Process
Did you know that 30% of the retail clothing made around the world is never sold?¹ Unfortunately, many of these items end up in landfills which is one of the reasons why clothing is the second largest global pollutant, right behind oil.
In an attempt to be more environmentally friendly, PARACHRON produces items on demand, as soon as they have been sold. This significantly reduces overproduction and waste. Our performance activewear is printed, precision-cut, and hand-sewn with industrial sewing machines, to match your order, and then shipped right to your door. This means you receive a brand new, high quality item that was made just for you, with a minimal carbon footprint.
We support lean manufacturing practices and environmental sustainability initiatives. Along those lines, we have implemented the following:
• Our 'on demand' manufacturing process allows us to produce items once they have been sold which minimizes waste
• Our sublimation inks are biodegradable
• LED lighting has been installed at all of our manufacturing locations to conserve energy
• Recycling programs have been initiated for paper, plastic, and glass
• All ink waste is disposed of according to environmental regulations
• Damaged products are donated to charitable organizations
• All of our fabrics are sourced from suppliers that comply with labor, environmental, and safety standards
Our products are made with high-quality fabrics, fade-resistant inks, and extremely durable seams. To ensure the products you receive meet our high standards, a 3-step quality review is performed on every garment, before being sent to your door.
Employee Working Conditions
We have manufacturing locations in the USA, Europe, and Mexico. Every employee working at each of our production locations enjoys paid time off, healthcare benefits, and a safe and friendly working environment.
