Sustainable & Ethically Manufactured

 

Sustainability is important to us, we handpick suppliers that have the same vision as we do. Manufacture clothes that have the smallest environmental footprint.  True sustainability is when the whole supply chain is sustainable, from the farmers to the final product. Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe. They are not exposed to toxic chemicals in the field or through their food and water supply. It also means farmers grow more than one crop which supplements their food and income.

Sustainable fashion takes into account the entire supply chain and life cycle of a garment, from where and how it is made to when it ends up in our landfills. Organic cotton farming puts less stress on nature because it ensures farmers detoxify the land that they grow their crops on, use naturally beneficial practices like crop rotation and mechanical removal of weeds and do not treat any of their seeds with fungicides.

Ethical manufacturing- all the clothes we sell have been made by adults in fair and safe working conditions.

Our suppliers work closely with their factories whether they are close by, like some of our manufacturer’s in Poland have factories that are more accessible and some suppliers have factories that are a little bit further away (India, China and Turkey). They all have a strong social responsibility towards their workers and they have either BCSI code of conduct, International Labour Organisation (ILO) or SEDEX-code certification. These different certifications ensure that the factories employ ethical business practices when it comes to the welfare and safety of their adult employees, as well as offering reasonable work hours and wages.

BCSI 

BCSI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) is one of the fundamental protocols for social audits chosen by companies worldwide.

BCSI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) requirements
SEDEX CODE
The Sedex-Code was officially launched in 2004. Very simply, it aims to help improve the effectiveness of buying companies' ethical trade strategies by offering a facility for supplier companies to share their audits with multiple customers. Wages and benefits paid for a standard working week meet, at a minimum, national legal standards or industry benchmark standards, whichever is higher. In any event wages should always be enough to meet basic needs and to provide some discretionary income. There is no forced, bonded or involuntary prison labour. Workers, without distinction, have the right to join or form trade unions of their own choosing and to bargain collectively. There shall be no new recruitment of child labour.
