On this episode we’re exploring one of the final stages of production in apparel manufacturing with Rita Castro & Dionísia Portela from Confetil, a Portuguese garment manufacturer that has been supplying brands all over the world since 1960. Dionísia is Sustainability Manager and Rita is Sales and Commercial Manager for four of Confetil’s customers. They tell us more about the processes that give our clothes the final look and feel that brands aim for, from solid T-shirts to those with graphic patterns or vintage looks, to different types of printing processes.

This episode is part of a mini-series that explains the production processes behind different fabrics, the players involved, what are their incentives, and more. It’s hard to have a conversation about how to make a material better if we don’t understand how it’s made in the first place.
