With sampling completed and finalized, the production of our garments begins. Our factories have a quality control process and assurances at each phase of production. Measurement tolerances exist in the fashion industry because it is nearly impossible to make the exact product off of a pattern in bulk. Due to our volume and quality control, we are able to be uniquely consistent in our production. Since we only make a few products at a high volume, the simplicity in our product assortment gives us an advantage to be uncommonly consistent.
Certified Social Accountability
The importance of a fair and decent workplace for employees at every point in our supply chain equates to the actual quality of the garments you purchase. Through independent, third-party certificates that are updated regularly, the team members involved in the production of our garments have safe and equitable workplaces.
Having our products GOTS certified means our factories must meet requirements concerning working and social conditions that are equivalent to those of leading social sustainability standards. GOTS social criteria is based on the key norms of the International Labor Organization (ILO), United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and must be met by all envolved in the supply chain.
All of our factories are WRAP certified and remain industry examples of social responsibility to their employees. The WRAP certification is a comprehensive facility-based model that has made it the world’s largest independent social compliance certification program for the apparel/textile industry.
WRAP is the world's largest independent certification program focused on the apparel, footwear, and sewn products sectors. They make sure that facilities are in ordinance with their 12 principles. These include: ensuring facilities will comply with laws and regulations in all locations where they conduct business, facilities will prohibit forced labor, child labor, discrimination, and harassment/abuse. As well focusing on fair compensation and benefits, fair hours worked, and a focus on health and safety. The other principles include freedom of association and collective bargaining, comply with environment and custom rules, and ensure security for the workplace.
Our factories work with Fairtrade Labeling Organizations (FLO) which are dedicated to alleviating poverty afflicting the majority of the world's farmers and workers by setting and certifying the compliance of stringent, socially-conscious production standards. FLOCERT is one of the world’s leading social auditing and verification bodies and the global certifier for Fairtrade. Fairtrade is important because it yields the best work environments and therefore the best production. They ensure that entire supply chains are built on fair practices and help producers, traders, and brands become truly sustainable. They specialize in integrity and efficiency when it comes to ensuring responsible trading.
