  • Scimitar recycles all paper from the manufacturing process.
  • Scimitar uses water based inks in the manufacturing process.
  • All off cuts of material are recycled or reused for other production processes.
  • Printer paper is used on both sides before recycling.
  • Garments are shipped by sea freight wherever possible.
  • Ink cartridges used throughout Scimitar are refillable.
  • Screens for silk printing are reused wherever possible.
  • The factory utilises energy saving equipment wherever possible.
