THE SUSTAINABLE REVOLUTION IS ON YOUR HEAD

Sustainability starts with a mindset.

Since 2018, we decided to reduce our environmental impact through a sustainable journey made of constant dialogue with our stakeholders, research for new materials and solutions, and inspiring a positive impact on our communities and the planet.

The strategy outlined by our company, anchored to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, has led to the introduction of new so-called preferred materials collection after collection. These materials translated into better results and impacts in terms of environmental and/or social sustainability compared to conventional production. But our strategy could not stop at this because we want to help you buy better and wear longer. We decided to use these materials not only on new items, but to aim for the progressive conversion, by 2025, of all the conventional materials of our bestsellers with preferred ones.

Follow our journey.

OUR COMMITMENT

Since 1995, we have devoted passion and care to the design of our products. Over the years, this dedication has turned into something more: a need to avoid the dangerous effects of climate change and a commitment to an increasingly responsible business that respects the planet and people. We believe that sustainability starts with a mindset, it is a natural evolution that we have to make and it goes far beyond the product, embracing everything we do.

By 2025 we set another challenge in our journey: to produce only items that include elements with reduced environmental impact in 100% of our Atlantis Collection. To achieve this goal, we are working not only on new products, but also on the progressive conversion of all conventional items into products with preferred materials and in compliance with our Atlantis Sustainable Products Principles, while remaining faithful in design and quality.

Headwear as we have always done, but in a more responsible way.
The revolution is on our minds. Wear it on your head.

We are on the road to sustainable headwear. Check our progress
