Universal Colours began with a small team of cyclists who came together to create a global performance brand with strong values. They realized that cyclists see their clothing as an extension of their views and personality and created a line of cycling activewear that doesn’t compromise on originality, durability, or ecological and social responsibility.
As a clothing brand, Universal Colours looks at sustainability from a performance perspective and prioritizes progressive design and considerately sourced materials to create the highest-quality products for their collections. And while their team is constantly challenging their suppliers to create recycled or bio-based yarns that perform as well, or better, than virgin materials, they will always look at the performance of the fabrics first. They used the same logic when it came to their packaging.
Universal Colours chose TIPA because they wanted to offer a premium solution that would protect their garments throughout their supply chain but return to nature in a safe way. The brand was impressed by the credibility and accreditations associated with TIPA as well as the other like-minded brands like Pangaia that have opted for TIPA compostable packaging and felt it aligned perfectly with their objectives.
