"Sustainability and honesty are natural
parts of who we are and what we do"

- Carl-Axel Surtevall, founder of Casall

Casall’s core values are the very foundations of our brand; innovative solutions, honesty and high ethical standards in every step. Our goal is to always deliver high quality. IT MATTERS.

We carefully select suppliers who all share our values and are dedicated to producing high quality products with respect for humanity and the environment.

Conscious Choice

Every choice you make affects how you feel and where you are going in life. You create your own path and we believe we share the same journey. We are always conscious about the choices we make, from the materials we use to how and where our products are made. It does not mean they are 100 % perfect, there is always room for improvement. Conscious Choice is our way of continuously pushing Casall’s products to the next level.

The Environmental Coordinator at Casall works daily to improve our production process. This involves educating and supporting our suppliers, helping them to understand European standards, regulations and how we all benefit from products produced with respect for humans and the environment.

The position is a vital part of Casall, making sure the company walk the talk.

WEAR

Where it's made

We are proud to say that approximately 90% of the WEAR collection always has and still is produced in Europe. Approximately 10% is produced in Asia. Since the production mainly takes place in Europe our products are a beneficial choice considering for example the environment, transportation, production methods, and working conditions. We visit WEAR factories and suppliers frequently to ensure the production is aligned with Casall’s requirements and values.

How it's made

Ever since we started more than 30 years ago, we have worked with some of the best fabric and garment suppliers in Europe and require all of our suppliers to sign our Chemical Contract in order to comply with REACH and other regulations. They have been carefully selected for their high quality standards regarding renewable energy, closed water systems, taking care of their wastewater and actively trying to minimize their negative environmental footprint. However, it is always possible to improve the production. Together with our suppliers we constantly work to develop and improve our products and ourselves, it is an important and ongoing process.

What it's made of

Casall WEAR has its core in creating sportswear with the right function based on our deep knowledge of textiles. We obsess about it, to be in the forefront and part of the future development of the latest technology as the specialized training company we are.

We carefully select the fibers used based on function and performance. One example is that we have made the choice to use polyamide instead of polyester as much as possible. It is softer and more gentle to the skin and made from smooth fibers, making it difficult for bacteria to evolve. This, in its turn, allows us to completely skip anti-bacterial treatments, that can be harmful to human health and the environment.

In parts of our collection we use Recycled Polyamide, made of ECONYL® fibers produced from ghost fishing nets, which at the end of their life cycle, instead of being discarded or abandoned under water are recovered – together with other nylon waste – and regenerated. The use of Recycled Polyamide is something we strive to extend in the near future.

Another example of Casall´s strive for innovation and long-term mindset is the new material Bio Polyamide. It is a polyamide which is made of oil from the castor plant rather than ordinary oil. Firstly, the castor plant is grown on barren landscape and does not need a lot of water to grow. So it does not compete with other good agriculture land or it´s water for growing food. In addition, there is less use of colorants, water and heat when the garment is dyed, compared to standard polyamide.

The majority of our suppliers are OEKO-TEX® certified.

TOOL

Where it's made

Casall have a unique relationship with a family business in Taiwan. We have collaborated for over 30 years, developing the sustainable aspects of the production together ever since. The family business outsources the production to companies they have close contact with in Taiwan and China.

This unique relationship makes it possible for us to focus on developing the production and making more conscious choices.

How it's made

A common vision of sustainability is a vital element in our supplier relationships. Our suppliers sign and work according to the Casall Chemical contract and have to specify every material used for each product produced, provide test reports and other relevant documentation. Additionally, we work daily to educate and support all our suppliers to help them understand the Casall chemical process. Important keys to produce non-harmful products are close cooperation and honesty.

What it's made of

We always make sure that our products are produced in the best way possible, with respect for humans and the environment. As mentioned above, all the materials are specified by our suppliers, which enables us to always know what our products are made of. Casall produce PVC free products whenever possible. All of our products are BPA-free and contain non harmful phthalates.

Environment

Laws and Regulation

At Casall we constantly work to ensure we comply with all applicable environmental regulations and requirements. Our products contain no hazardous chemical substances and are not dangerous for the environment or humans.

REACH

The European REACH regulation was adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals. REACH applies mainly to chemical products and chemicals, but in principle it applies to all chemical substances; not only those used in industrial processes but also in our day-to-day lives, as articles such as e.g. clothes, furniture and electrical appliances also consist of chemical substances. REACH is based on the principle that companies (e.g manufacturers or importers) are responsible for the substances, that they manufacture, place on the market or use, and ensuring that they do not cause harmful effects on human health or the environment.

POPs

The POPs Regulation bans or restricts the use of persistent organic pollutants in both chemical products and articles. The POPs substances have particularly serious health and environmental properties, being persistent and non-biodegradable.

RoHS

The Directive on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment restricts (with exceptions) the use of six hazardous substances in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment.

Biocidal product Regulation

The Biocidal Products Regulation concerns the placing on the market and use of biocidal products, which are used to protect humans, animals, materials or articles against harmful organisms like pests or bacteria, by the action of the active substances contained in the biocidal product. The regulation aims to improve the functioning of the biocidal products market in the EU, while ensuring a high level of protection for humans and the environment.

Casall symbols

PVC-free

PVC is a very flexible and durable material, but is controversial due to potential negative impacts on human health and the environment, because of additives e.g. plasticizers added under production; and when becoming waste. We strive to extend our range of PVC-free products in the near future.

BPA-free

Our water bottles do not contain BPA, or Bisphenol A, which it is actually called. BPA can be endocrine disrupters, for example, it can cause reduced fertility.

6P-free

Our 6P-free products do not contain any of the 6 most harmful phthalates (DEHP, DBP, BBP, DINP, DIDP, DNOP). Instead Casall uses well-functioning alternatives like phthalates with a low order of toxicity, or phthalate-free plasticizers e.g. citrates.

Conscious choice

Our symbol CONSCIOUS CHOICE makes it easier for you to find the range of Casall products that are extra cared for. It guarantees that Casall and our suppliers have made active choices to produce and make the product more environmentally friendly. It has to fulfil criterias such as being produced of recycled materials, use of non-harmful additives and/or that the production process is energy, water and/or waste effective.

Casall Care

Casall Care

By always caring for your products you can extend their average lifetime. Below you will find some ideas on how to take extra good care of your Casall products.

Care instructions WEAR

Detergent

It is important not to use too much detergent. Overdosing can cause unwanted consequences to both the environment and your body, such as skin irritation.

Fabric softener

Functional material should not be washed with softener since it reduces both its elasticity and ability to transport moisture.

Have in mind

Washing too hot, strong centrifuge and tumble-drying can damage details in the garment. Think twice before washing and try airing your clothes. Sometimes hanging your sportswear to air outside can be enough to refresh.

Care instructions TOOL

Exercise equipment

Always use a mild soap solution for cleaning, no harsh chemicals. Avoid storing your exercise machine in direct sunlight or in hot, humid, dusty or dirty environments.

Treadmill

Lubricate with silicone oil under the carpet a few times a year. Vacuum the engine room on a regular basis.

Work out gloves in leather

Use a damp cloth to wipe away any stains. When cleaned the leather needs to be moisturized with leather grease, apply it with a dry and clean cloth and leave overnight. Wipe off excess grease with a lint free cloth.

Yoga/Gym mat

Hand wash in lukewarm water with a mild soap solution and a lint free cloth. Hang the mat to dry freely.

Reuse & Recycle

Reuse

If in a good condition, donate to charity or give to someone you care about.

Recycle WEAR

Reuse as a cloth or sort as combustible waste.

Recycle TOOL

Training machines - sort as electrical waste and hand in to nearest recycling center.

Training products - hand in to nearest recycling center and sort in accordance to the recycling center's instructions.
