Bamboo regenerates naturally through an extensive root system that sends out an average of four to six new shoots per year meaning no land degradation or environmental upset occurs. Bamboo Charcoal is 100% natural and can be recycled back into the ecossytem. The benefits with Bamboo Charcoal are many, some of them are listed below

Cross Sportswear are working hard with eliminating waste. Leftover fabrics from production is being used for samples, prototypes and special products. Nothing is waste.
Suppliers and Production
Cross Sportswear has no production of its own and instead has its production by selected manufactures in China. The choice of manufacturers is based on product quality, delivery performance and of course ethical and environmental considerations.
The dyeing process
We are always searching for more sustainable alternatives. Our latest launch, The Undye Collection, is made of 100% undyed fabric.
About 20% of the world’s polluted water is caused by the clothing industry, where the dyeing process is by far the worst. Our aim with the collection is to make as little impact as possible on the environment.
