Our bags are made of materials that consist of up to 100% recycled PET bottles. Plastic waste can therefore be reused, conserving our natural resources.
Sound incredible? Just watch the video and discover how a satch product evolves from used PET bottles.
Since 2011 we have put over 110 million used PET bottles (0.5 l) to new use. Would you like to know how many recycled PET bottles are in your satch product? Simply click through our slider and find out!
Making our fabrics from recycled PET materials saves significantly more resources compared to making polyester fabrics derived from crude oil. PET recycling is twice as good: Plastic waste finds a new use and fossil fuels are saved.

Here you can learn how many resources we have already been able to save since 2011:
With the objective to further improve working conditions within our production facilities worldwide, we are a member of the FAIR WEAR FOUNDATION (FWF).
We are proud to have achieved Fair Wear Leader Status in 2019 and to be among the few companies that have been awarded the organization's best possible status.
Together with FWF we have set ourselves the goal of continuing to improve working conditions in the textile industry. The FWF regularly checks the working conditions in our sewing rooms as well as grades our own efforts to improve working conditions in our supply chain.
With our leader status membership, we commit ourselves and our suppliers to adhere to a strict Code of conduct, the „Code of Labour Practices“.
The Code provides for the following standards:
Reasonable hours of work
Safe and healthy working conditions
As a bluesign®️ sytem partner, we pay attention to an envirnomentally friendly production starting with the beginning of our value creation. Many of our fabric and material producers as well as their suppliers of raw materials and chemicals are also bluesign®️ system partners. Together we want to keep the impact on people and nature as low as possible when we produce our products.
bluesign®️ defines strict rules for production. Dying our fabrics in particular requires that we pay special attention to only using very specific chemicals. In addition, bluesign®️ checks that the chemicals used are completely filtered out so that they cannot get into the environment unregulated.
In addition, all bluesign® system partners commit themselves to the following five principles:
At satch, we always strive to manufacture our products in an environmentally friendly way. Most of our accessories are already certified with the Green Button: The Green Button identifies textiles produced in a socially and ecologically sustainable way.
White sand, turquoise water, bright sunshine - a dream for anyone who loves the sea. It's not for nothing that we have dedicated our own satch design to the incomparable Bondi Beach. And we go one step further: Our BONDI BEACH REVIVAL EDITION is made of ECONYL® regenerated nylon. What's special about it: Old fishing nets are part of the nylon, which is made from 100% waste.
Our products are REACH-compliant and therefore chemically harmless. The water-repellent textile treatment for all our products is 100% PFC-free since 2019, so you can get to your destination dry in the rain.
Why did we choose on a PFC-free textile treatment? So-called PFC chemicals are suspected of being carcinogenic and are not biodegradable. They have been found in water, soil and air. For us, this is a reason to eliminate them from our production process and to take another successful step towards protecting the environment.
Responsible corporate management has been a top priority for us since our founding in 2010. For our commitment, we were awarded the German Sustainability Prize in 2016. However, that is no reason to stop there and not become better yet! Go for the good feeling of satch. IT'S UP TO YOU
