CIRCULARITY, CURATION AND INDIVIDUALITY – OUR BRAND CELEBRATES CREATIVITY AS CHANNELED INTO PRACTICALITY
ABOUT OUR MINDSET
Nothing is not an ecosystem. We bring together the beauty of living responsibly with the energy of new ideas and a never ending supply of human creativity. Our community is driven by innovators and new perspectives, coming together to design our way to a better tomorrow.MOT VISION →
MOT strives to reduce waste through functional design, by creating essential designs that are shape inclusive, curated, versatile and timeless.
Embracing simplicity, the collection was created using hyper-realistic 3D drawings eliminating the need for physical prototypes and reducing our material waste in both patterns and fabrics usage.
Half of our MOT styles are made using high-end surplus materials, while the other half are made using certified sustainable and natural fibres. Every little detail is considered, for all our MOT buttons made using biodegradable and plant-based resources.
MOT continues to seek out the most trusted certification organisationsto ensure uncompromising standards with all our materials.
We are committed to a circular economy that reduces waste by using existing materials to make new products. From sourcing high-quality surplus fabrics to create MOT styles and recycling PET bottles for our interlinings, to the recycled materials used for packaging.
In partnership with SOJO, we provide after purchase fit guarantee and product lifespan tailoring service.
In partnership with BLANC, we provide better aftercare with expert sustainable cleaning technologies, including ‘wetcleaning’ and 'liquid CO2 drycleaning', which are both Woolmark-approved.
Every care label includes a QR code representing an authenticity stamp for MOT goods and access to key product information. This information encourages careful aftercare and potentially future textile recycling.
In partnership with Thrift+, MOT customers can contribute to a sustainable circular system. With just a few clicks, MOT makes it easy to give your old clothes a new life by selling them in the second-hand market and donating to the charity of your choice.
To minimise our environmental impact, all our material sourcing is limited to Europe and our pieces are made in England.
Material waste is reduced by using advanced AI Technology, including 3D Knit Production, enabling accurate material orders for production. By managing our energy and water use we are able to lower our carbon footprint.
MOT seeks to participate in both direct and indirect actions that can have a positive impact on the planet.
Direct: In partnership with Ecologi, every MOT purchase funds an offset to your carbon footprint through purchasing carbon credits and planting mangrove trees.
Indirect: By basing MOT on a circular business model.
ABOUT OUR PURPOSE
We are responsible for making our collection as sustainable as we possibly can and want to ensure that we guide and support our customers to be active members by continuing with the circularity by preserving their MOT and existing clothing or giving it another life by recycling or upcycling.MOT NETWORK →
