We find it important to work with suppliers that take full responsibility and believe in a transparent fashion industry. We visit our suppliers several times a year in Portugal, Italy and India and over the years we created a strong relationship with them. We share these visits and special moments on our social media, so everyone can see with whom we work and what the working conditions are in the factories we work with.
All of our suppliers are part of, or are becoming, part of an international sustainable platform such as B.S.C.I. (Business Social Compliance Initiative). The purpose of this organization is to improve working conditions, including the right to form a trade union, safe working conditions and no forced or child labor. Or our suppliers are part of SEDEX, which is a global organization that manage the performance around human rights, health & safety, the environment and business ethics.
improve in time
Our goal is to reduce the environmental impact and become a more sustainable brand. We try to be more responsible for the environment as much as we can. Creating a high-quality product that can be worn for several seasons is for us a standard in our designing process. But we want to improve ourselves more. We recently chose to use only biodegradable poly bags and decrease the use of plastics. Also, all our shipping boxes are produced in the Netherlands and we re-use the shipping boxes from our suppliers. Step by step we will make more of these changes in the years to come and we hope that together with our suppliers, retailers, agents and our customers we make these changes.
