THE ORIGIN.

The clothing we make tells a story. On the back of our hoodies and t-shirts you’ll find the story of changemakers. It’s the same story the stars tell you. A changemaker is a person who steps outside his comfort-zone to pursue his unknown. We believe that when you long to be a changemaker you can change things.

INSPIRE A MOVEMENT

We came to ‘inspire a movement’. With a product that can make people smile, boost confidence and is made of high-quality cotton, we want to inspire you to step out of the line and to not be a part of the daily mechanism. Be you and don’t let anyone sand you down to the known musts of society. Live in the pursuit of your unknown.

– FOR OUR FUTURE

FAIRTRADE TRADEMARK

The products of Velocity Utrecht have the Fairtrade trademark. This trademark guarantees that our clothes are bought against a fair price with fair trading conditions. Agreements on price and purchase guarantees with small-scale farmers in developing countries enable them to make a living from their work, but also to invest further in a sustainable future. This future is the one we want to support as a brand.

BSCI SUPPLY CHAIN

Our supply chain is connected to BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative). This is an initiative of companies who are committed to better working conditions in their global supply chain.

SA-8000 PRODUCTION NORM

Our production has the SA-8000 norm. SA-8000 is the world's leading international standard for corporate social responsibility. This is verifiable certification based on international standards for the working environment as set out in the conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO), the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

DETOX GREENPEACE CERTIFICATION

Also, our supply chain has the DETOX certification of Greenpeace. This certification is focused on the safe, environmentally responsible dyeing and bleaching of fabrics. Reuse of water and energy and biodegradable color and dyes are central to this. Toxic chemical pollution is a life-threatening issue for a very large population group in East Asia. Hundreds of millions of people lack access to clean drinking water. We, as Velocity Utrecht, want this to end.
