Our collaboration with Tuli Trading, a Finnish-owned textile company, started in 2017. Tuli Trading has local teams in Bangladesh and Pakistan which monitor the quality of our materials, production, and shipping. Sustainability is also in the heart of Tuli Trading – they are a BSCI organisation, and they work only with chosen factories that are BSCI, WRAP, SEDEX or Oeko-Tex audited and certified. Thanks to Tuli Trading, we have a team of professionals solving problems and supervising the production at the factories. This way we can ensure the quality of the products and the well-being of the production workers.

Globe Hope is a Finnish sustainable fashion brand that creates clothing and accessories from recycled materials. At the moment our cooperation is focused on globalisation, and we are constantly developing new ideas to work on with Globe Hope. Together with Globe Hope, Pure Waste and Tuli Trading we launched a 100% recycled Globe Hope clothing collection in 2020. To create the collection, each company’s special knowledge was utilised: Basic-Fashion was responsible of the collection’s product design and sales, Pure Waste developed fully recycled yarn and Tuli Trading made sure the production follows the GRS standard.

From Italian knitwear to sustainable everyday clothing

It all started with importing Italian knitwear to Finland when our CEO Risto Vähätalo established an agentry in Helsinki in 1987. 

In the beginning of the 1990s, Basic-Fashion was an import business with Lithuania as our main country of acquisition. At the time, we were one of Lithuania’s biggest textile clients. We started importing garments from India, Pakistan, and China in the mid-90s and have since developed strong partnerships with factories and suppliers in our countries of production.

Since the beginning, Basic-Fashion has successfully put a lot of attention and effort into private label clothing. We create affordable collections of casual clothing and home textiles for different sized companies: we have wholesales, retailers, hypermarkets as well as big and small brands as our clients.

We are experts at creating quality products with a good price point. This expertise has granted us the honour of being one of the suppliers for the Finnish Maternity Package. The materials of our Maternity Package clothes are mainly Oeko-Tex cotton and GRS certified. We have made safe and long-lasting clothes that are given to babies born in Finland since 2014. Check out the contents of the Maternity Package here!

In 2017 we merged with the clothing import company Newtop. The collaboration with Newtop opened our path to the demanding and competitive to new markets. Our success in new countries is a great example of our ability to adapt to different markets and work flexibly with the requirements and legislation in different countries.
