About Orta Anadolu
Since its inception, Orta has been weaving a denim heritage passed from generation to generation.
Founded in 1953, Orta transformed from a spinning & weaving company to a denim manufacturer in 1985. Today, Orta produces over 60 million meters of denim in its Turkey and Bahrain factories and is creating a platform for leading manufacturers to step up and reclaim a denim industry where more aesthetics leads to more ethics.
While our footprint is what we take from the planet when we consume, our handprint is what we give the the planet when we create change for the better.
In an era of change, ORTA’S handprint will promote denim manufacturing at the intersection of where people, planet and purpose matter.
OUR HANDPRINT MISSION:
• To reinvent the crass industrial weight of unsustainable manufacturing processes.
• To innovate with transformational biology and technology that promotes more aesthetics and ethics.
• To explore new horizons mentally, physically, emotionally, and sensorially.
• To celebrate the artisan.
• To support the human spirit of our co-workers, customers and consumers.
• To make jeans matter for the next-generation.
Transparency, commitment and trustworthiness are the key elements of Orta’s philosophy.
At ORTA, sustainability is ‘business as usual’. Our aim is to create a more robust denim ecosystem where ART (DESIGN) MEETS TECHNOLOGY MEETS ETHICS for new infinite possibilities of denim today and tomorrow In 2009, Orta used 3% of organic cotton in its production without quoting an extra cost. Currently, Orta uses around 15% better cotton in all its production. As a company that incorporates emerging trends and fashion in its denim production, Orta collaborates with artists, designers, vintage dealers and trend-setters.
