Ethical manufacturing

Instead of owning and operating factories of our own, we work with production partners. All our partners are carefully selected, choosing to work with businesses that value ethical and sustainable production as we do.

That means selecting for:

  • The rights of freedom of association and collective bargaining
  • Safety standards
  • Working conditions
  • Social responsibility
  • Environmental practices

This ensures that every single person involved in the production of our products is taken care of, and the impact on the planet is minimised. Working with our manufacturing partners in Dongguan, China for years means we have built a trusting network of like-minded companies that help us accomplish our mission.

Part of our identity

We work within a strict code of conduct to make sure our standards are being followed. This is not a “nice-to-have,” it’s essential to our core identity. This code features 11 important areas in which we hold ourselves and our partners accountable.

These include:

  • The rights of freedom of association and collective bargaining
  • No discrimination
  • Fair remuneration
  • Decent working hours
  • Occupational health & safety
  • No child labour
  • Special protection for young workers
  • No precarious employment
  • No bonded labour
  • Protection of the environment
  • Ethical business behaviour

We have modelled these 11 standards on those set by amfori, the leading global business association for open and sustainable trade.

We keep our suppliers (and ourselves) accountable with training and support to communicate our high expectations. We keep the pressure on with regular inspections and third party audits, ensuring our partners are upholding their end of the agreement. And we work with them to maintain and correct any mistakes with the appropriate action. This is the hard, necessary work we do to make sure you get a quality product that fits your values.
