Jil Sander uses a small proportion of sustainable and natural materials such as linen, ramie, and jute.
The designer brand also uses some semi-synthetic regenerated fibers such as lyocell, viscose, cupro, and acetate made from renewable materials.
However, Jil Sander uses polluting conventional cotton to produce many of her clothes. And most of the brand's fabrics are highly polluting synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as spandex, polyester, and nylon.
Jil Sander doesn't provide any information regarding how she chooses her suppliers. She doesn't state how often audits are conducted to ensure ethical and sustainable production, ethical working conditions, social and labor standards, safety, and other important rights for workers in its supply chain.
Jil Sander doesn't use any exotic animal skin, or hair, fur, angora. But she uses leather, wool, and silk to manufacture many of her clothing pieces.
These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical and harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and wastes. More sustainable alternatives exist.
However, Jil Sander doesn't measure her water usage, pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and waste across the supply chain. She doesn't have any sustainability goals, science-based targets, or timelines to improve in the future.
