Manifattura Big was conceived as a sustainable company

We have always been actively engaged in purchasing sustainable fibres.

For this reason, to date our company and our products continue to be certified according to the main internationally recognised standards.

These certifications not only help promote sustainable practices, but attest to our constant commitment to respecting the environment and animal welfare.

RAF Responsible Animal Fibres

The RWS (Responsible Wool Standard), RMS (Responsible Mohair Standard) and RAS (Responsible Alpaca Standard) certifications guarantee the presence in our articles of wool sourced from farms that ensure the well-being of the animal and correct management of the land, for the protection of biodiversity.

In fact, all these certifications require inspection of the farm to verify the requirements of animal welfare, land management and social compliance, as well as visits and checks by third parties of all the sites that transform the material into the finished garment, in order to ensure correct traceability management.

GRS Global Recycled Standard

The GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certification guarantees the presence of recycled material in our articles. This standard also provides further guarantees both on the use of less dangerous chemicals in manufacturing processes and on a supply chain that pays attention to people and to the environment.

In order to obtain certification, in fact, all the sites where the transformation of the material up to the finished garment takes place are verified by third-party bodies. Correct management of traceability is proven, compliance with stringent requirements on the chemical products used, compliance with the national regulations relating to workers' rights - such as freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining - laws relating to health, safety, wages and working hours, as well as compliance with the applicable national and local environmental regulations - such as on waste production and management, noise emissions and emergency management.

The Big Direction

ZDHC Supplier to Zero

In our creative research we pay particular attention to the finishing phases and have always been attentive to the use of chemicals in the supply chain.

For this reason we are certified according to the ZDHC Supplier To Zero program with Foundational level and we require our contractors, who perform the processes where the chemical is used, to adopt the ZDHC MRSL and to implement an adequate Chemical Management system.


The Higg FEM is a tool from Cascale (formerly Sustainable Apparel Coalition), used to evaluate the environmental impact of production and useful for sharing data relating to own annual consumption with customers.

We are registered in the Higg Index Platform and, in addition to updating the environmental performance data annually, we plan to verify them through audits at our factory.

In order to provide further guarantees to our customers regarding the correct management of personnel and business ethics, we periodically undertake to obtain recognised international certifications.

One of these is the SMETA 4 Pillars Certification by Sedex, which certifies compliance with the current legislation, adherence to the ETI (Ethical Trading Initiative) Code and adoption of the good practices included in the SMETA guideline, for the 4 'pillars': Labour relations, health and safety, environment and business ethics.


Certified, sustainable, traceable.
