We love this planet
we care about its future
and therefore invest in
- G Mega -
We believe that sustainability requires action, not just words.
In this industry, it is hard to challenge and change the unsustainable practices
that have existed for a very long time, but we’re trying our best to do so.
We have to keep trying, and pushing sustainability,
until we have arrived at a better way to clothe ourselves.
A fashion sustainability movement has begun, and G Mega is part of it.
- Stop using materials, and production practices, that harm mother earth.
- Choose biodegradable yarns
- Find ways to lower our carbon dioxide emissions
- Become ever more sustainable in our textile production.
- Reduce water and energy waste, reducing our impact on the land, animals and human beings.
As a sustainability-focused company, we pay a lot of attention to
saving water, energy, and paper in our office.
We encourage our staff to use reusable tableware,
and we collect and reuse fabric cutting waste to make fabric-chips for our customers.
These steps are very simple but, in their own small ways, they are very radical.
We are a certificated supplier of BCI, OCS and GRS products
to give our customers peace of mind that our sustainability credentials
have been audited and verified by reputable global organizations.
G Mega took these steps from a belief
that sustainability has to be the future of fashion industry.

We may not be sustainability pioneers
but we are proud practitioners, and always strive to improve.
Thinking in a sustainable way means we have to develop
our business step by step in a sustainable way.
We have started to actively source renewable materials and
techniques that can help us, and our clients,
achieve the next level of sustainability together.
We work with our Taiwan yarn suppliers to develop our own eco collections.
Here are the sustainable yarns that we offer:
We create fabrics that can save up to 70% water:
Following our yarn material sustainability efforts,
we have also turned to considering how we can maintain sustainability at every stage of the textile production process.
We developed our own Undyed collection,
which focuses on the fabrics’ textural features
rather than being driven by colour palettes.
Organic cotton and recycled poly are familiar materials in our collections
and have been for a long time.
Lyocell, Tencel and sustainable viscose are too.
We are open-minded about anything that can help us in our efforts
to achieve sustainability in what we do,
and are transparent about sharing this information with our clients.
After all, the goal is a better environment for everyone,
and we need to work together to achieve that.
We want to change the negative stereotypes about
sustainable design always being boring and unattractive.
We created our Eco-collection made from renewable yarns
in a very gentle, pastel-color, palette.
This makes the whole collection not just feel softer, but also look soothing.
The fabrics featured in this collection look stunning when put into garment samples,
and look beautiful on the rack when transformed by our clients into loungewear and essential items.
Due to Covid-19, we recently haven't always been able to meet our clients in person.
In many places, designers and fabric teams are working from home and
may continue to do so even once the pandemic eases.
This creates a physical barrier to communication that didn’t exist pre-pandemic.
These new limitations to sharing fabrics with our clients’ departments
and teams have arose over a short period of time, sometimes overnight.
In the course of its creation, we truly fell in love with our Undyed Collection,
where we chose to keep the greige color, and even the cotton neps.
Undyed fabrics allow us to focus on their textures and transform them into unique garment silhouettes.
Showing to our clients that G Mega fabrics don’t need color to be beautiful
has also proven to be a good marketing strategy.
We are now developing more undyed fabrics into our product lines.
The fabrics are not only beautiful, but they also save a large amount of water during the production process.
To deal with this challenge, we started to design our own fabric chips.
The chips are made from the waste created during the cutting of our fabrics
in our sample rooms when making sample books for clients.
We provide QR codes on the cover of our chip books,
so everyone can refer directly to the fabrics chips while looking at our digital fabric collections.
Our clients’ designers can touch and feel the fabrics
but also get execution ideas from our digital books.
We put our heart and soul into
making our design work as accessible and unique as possible,
making the lives of our clients easier and
providing the perfect supplement
to our development and production expertise.
