Adequate wages, healthy working hours, a safe hygienic workplace, protection of the environment, prohibition of forced labour, elimination of child labour are all vital to our social responsibility.
On Demand production
On-Demand is a method of manufacturing in which goods are only produced when they are required, rather than in large batches.Most fashion companies produce large quantities of inventory, a practice that reduces per-piece production cost but often leaves them saddled with excess product at the end of the season. This extra product is put on sale, marked down repeatedly, and if consumers still won’t buy, it’s dumped in landfills or burned, adding significant pollution to our planet.
All of our factories pay average wages over the minimum wage. We are striving to ensure 100% of our workers earn living wages.
We take annual trips to our factories and the farms where we source our organic cotton to meet the people who craft our jeans.
We also conduct third party audits up and down our supply chain to meet our high social responsibility and environmental standards
All of our suppliers must sign our Code of Conduct before our working relationship begins.
