The earth is our inspiration, and we are committed to protecting her.
Our mission is to produce, package and market our products in the most sustainable manner possible.
In our Autumn/Winter 2019 collection, we made it our primary objective to embrace sustainability, focusing on recycling and environmental awareness. We introduced our first eco-friendly and sustainable collection, recyclable packaging and hangers, and biodegradable polybags.
In Spring/Summer 2020, we will reinforce our commitment to protecting the earth and sustainability and continue to reduce our environmental impact.

The Bluesign system ensures sustainable textile production, predominantly through active product areas. It makes sure harmful substances are eliminated right from the beginning of the manufacturing process, while also setting and controlling the standards for environmentally friendly and safe production.
Bluesign ensures the final product meets the consumer safety requirements, and assures the consumer that they are acquiring a sustainable product.
The standard OEKO-TEX® association has been testing for harmful substances since 1992. The OEKO-TEX® standard 100 is a global, independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products throughout the textile processing chain.
We are proud that 99% of our products are OEKO-TEX® certified.

THE MAKING OF - ECO FIBRES
From Recycled bottles and Fishing nets to D O R I N A ECO Fabrics - The Journey
The transformation begins with an eco-conscious person putting a used plastic bottle into the recycle bin or when fishing nets are collected. The materials are shredded and sorted by colour. They are cleaned, mixed, dried, heated, and pressed to produce yarn. The yarn is then woven and stretched to gain strength to become cloth, which is then dyed, cut and sewn by a skilled team and given a new life under D O R I N A ECO.
WE TAKE ACTION TO CLEAN AND RESTORE THE ENVIRONMENT
At D O R I N A , we make ECO part of our daily lives. We strive to source reconditioned computer equipment, environmentally-friendly office and kitchen supplies and have established plastic, paper and metal recycling collections.
Our staff regularly participate in community-led environmental projects with organisations such as Plastic-Free Seas and Hands-On Hong Kong.
