Our four main pillars are fun, family, art & self-care
Sustainability and longevity are at the core of our business, which is a great epitome for family, since you don’t get rid of them just after a short while. And the same should go for garments.
At Tom Àdam, we think we have to be the leading example: we come up with new ways of producing and consuming and let environmental awareness dictate each and every step we take.
We are investing in the highest quality materials and workmanship and almost all of our fabrics are being produced in countries with a high share of renewable energy.
We are constantly on our way to creating the perfect garments and, without your feedback, we wouldn't even be close to where we are today. Our community often tells us every smallest detail about how our garments perform in their life - from sleeve lengths, to how the fabric feels on the skin, to even describing their idea of their ideal garment to us. All of this, we take more than seriously and incorporate in our garments.
What started with customers simply emailing us their feedback or questions has now become a principle of our development process: We use polls to find out what works, what could be improved and what we could try next, to make sure we create what you actually want.
At Tom Àdam, our goal is to get to know you by your first name. Let us know who you are and what we should know about you. Press here.

When we started Tom Àdam, one of our missions was to be as transparent as possible. We oversee every little part of our process, from our raw materials, to our facilities, to our partners, with the utmost attention to detail and transparency. One of our core values is that we want to know each person we work with and partner we are collaborating with and we don’t make any compromises there.
For us, responsibility starts with using natural, organic and recycled fibres, which we manufacture following fair labour conditions and an ethical supply chain. We take the responsibility for what we produce and we make sure it doesn't end up as waste. We have created an initiative in which we take back all of our products at the end of their lifespan, offering a discount for your next purchase. We will either reuse the material, or ensure that the product is donated to an appropriate charity and we will definitely make sure that the product or the raw material of it gets a second life.
We do everything we can to choose suppliers and producers that meet our high sustainability standards. Check out our producers.
Educating ourselves and others
Over two thirds of the environmental impact of clothing is created during the wearing phase. It has a large environmental footprint due to the water, energy and chemicals used in washing.
“Globally, more than 150 billion items of clothing are produced each year. Hypothetically, that’s about 20 pieces made for each person on the planet“
One of the most efficient ways to reduce the environmental impact of clothes is to persuade you to make small behavioural changes.
Taking care of your beloved garments is the foundation of having a long-lasting relationship with them. We are committed to create conscious products, but to make them last as long as possible and reduce your impact on the environment, we need a helping hand from you.
We have created a small guide to make it easier for you to know how to take care of your “loved-ones”.

We know how important it is to create things, but at the same time it's important not to forget about giving back.
One of the things we do is, for every order made, 1% is collected and set aside to support different initiatives. As we don't outsource our responsibilities, twice a year we pick one project that we donate to. That range from mangrove reforestation and protecting the ocean to donating to local dog shelters. We want to be involved in the projects we support and understand how can we help each other, because we all need a helping hand in one point of our lives.
