The concept behind HBE clothing revolves around sustainability and transparency as core values of our project. The only way to achieve credibility and responsibility as a brand is by being transparent and honest when it comes to the manufacturing process of our products.
Our garment manufacturer "Creative Textile Solutions" is located in the north of Portugal, 40 km from Porto. The production, settled in the beatiful landscape of Portugal, helps us to produce and develop our clothing, having many years of experience. The production is focused on working with GOTS-certification. This enables us to produce first-rate garments under the highest ecological and social standards.
In our interpretation of transparency, providing detailed information about the costs of manufacturing our products is very important.
Shown here are all the necessary costs to produce our socially and ecologically justifiable t-shirt:
- Materials: 5,74€
- Workmanship: 3,48€
- Embroidery / Prints: 6,96€
- Washing: 1,22€
Production Costs: 17,40€
- Logistics / Transport: 11,82€

- VAT (19%): 11,40€
Final price: 60,00€
The profits made from our products are mainly used to finance upcoming collections. HBE clothing is meant to grow organically, therefore we keep nearly 100% of the generated profits inside the company in order to be able to deliver high-quality products collection by collection.
