Factories


We work exclusively with small factories with whom we’ve built close relationships with. All production is carried out in Europe, in Portugal in family run or GOTS-certified factories. This enables us to reduce the time, cost and carbon footprint transporting the garments.

We also believe in supply chain transparency as ethical treatment of workers is as important to us as our environmental impact. We use accredited factories because we care about the people who help make our clothes. We want to make sure that factory employees are working in fair and just conditions and are not being exploited in any form. Every supplier and factory we work with holds certificates assuring our high work standards and expectations are being followed. We regularly travel to our factory partners to make sure the processes are overseen and are compliant with ethical production standards.
