In 2016, we launched our adaptive collection in North America,
offering classic, American cool clothes with innovative design
twists that made dressing easier for children and caregivers alike.
The following year, we expanded the line to include adults. Each
season we continue to roll out new modifications that our customers
and the community have asked for including expanded openings,
one-handed closures, adjustable features and seated options,
taking special note of sensory issues to ensure maximum
comfort and modern style for the entire family.
We proudly launched the second edition of the Tommy Hilfiger
Fashion Frontier Challenge, which aims to support entrepreneurial
start-up and scale-up stage businesses developing solutions that
promote inclusive and positive change in fashion. The application
round has now closed, and we are busy reviewing and narrowing
more than 400 submission to six finalists. Find out more here.
We aim to create fully circular products, where all
materials are part of a sustainable loop. To help us
achieve this, our 2020 targets range from procuring
100% of our cotton from more sustainable sources to
integrating circular principles like waste minimalization
and recyclability into our designs.
In 2013, we joined the Better Cotton Initiative,
which invests in training farmers to adopt better
farming practices that minimize negative
environmental, economic and social impact.
In 2018 approximately 65% of our cotton supply
globally was purchased from more sustainable
sources and we produced our first range of 100%
recycled cotton products.
Our sustainable denim program aims to increase our
use of innovative, lower impact finishing techniques,
which reduce water, energy and chemical
consumption in the process. In 2018, 17% of denim
produced for our European and Asian businesses
were produced with lower-impact finishes.
We are championing change makers and
amplifying their voices. We are inspired by the
dreamers and achievers who have the
determination and belief to be the best they can be
for themselves and their communities. At Tommy,
we are on a journey to do the same for the way
we work and the clothes we make.
