Terrera was founded in 2007 on the principle that we have a limited time here on Earth, and that we need to steward our environmental resources wisely. We are dedicated to crafting clothing and home products that are not only safe for the environment but also for the people who wear them. Let’s take a look at how our production practices prioritize sustainability.
Terrera's sustainable journey begins with its production processes. We carefully select factories equipped with built-in infrastructure to recycle water and reduce chemical usage to minimize our environmental impact. By employing a 'closed-loop' process, we recycle water and capture the chemicals used in processing bamboo, thus minimizing water waste and reducing pollution. This approach not only conserves valuable resources but also prevents harmful chemicals from entering our ecosystems.
Non-Toxic and Hypoallergenic Dyes

One of the cornerstones of our sustainable practices is the use of non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified dyes. These dyes not only ensure vibrant and lasting colors but also guarantee that the fabrics remain safe and gentle on the skin. By using low-impact dyes with high absorption rates, Terrera minimizes water usage and rinsing requirements during production, making a positive impact on both people and the planet.
Terrera's commitment to sustainability is woven into every thread of its products, quite literally. Our certified organic bamboo and cotton are free from harmful substances and bear the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification, assuring consumers of their safety. Through this dedication to organic materials, we support healthier soil, reduced water contamination, and overall biologically rich agriculture.
Audited for Ethics
Terrera's ethical compass extends to the well-being of everyone involved in their production process. Our overseas factory partners in China undergo rigorous audits to exceed national standards for health, safety, workplace conditions, and workers' protection. This commitment to fair treatment and ethical practices showcases our determination to uplift communities and protect those who contribute to our brand.
Reducing Ecological Footprint
From farm to factory to the final product, Terrera's careful planning and conscientious choices help reduce our ecological footprint. By sourcing materials and producing within the same region, they minimize the need for intercontinental shipping. When shipping is necessary, we opt for the slower but more sustainable sea transport method, proving that even in today's fast-paced world, patience is a virtue when it comes to sustainability.
Terrera's story is not just about making clothes; it's about making a difference. We have a steadfast commitment to sustainable production practices, and a deep-rooted passion for safeguarding the environment and the people who inhabit it. With each fabric dyed, each thread sewn, and each garment created, we are taking a step towards a brighter and greener future for us all.
