High standards from the field to your wardrobe.
All our clothes are researched and sourced to ensure they uphold our high environmental and social standards. Below are just some of the standout reasons behind our choices made regarding our supply chain. Our supply chain was chosen to ensure emissions of green-house gases are reduces as much as is currently possible, through organic eco-friendly farming and by achieving Carbon Neutral status in the manufacturing stage.

The Soil Association is the UK's leading campaigning and certification organisation for organic farming, and it is their certificate of organic origin that guarantee our suppliers cotton products and are part of the Global Organic Textile Standard (G.O.T.S.)
Organic textiles, especially organic cotton, provide solutions to many of the challenges that are related to the increasing consumption of fashion and fabrics. Cottons production and processing is highly polluting. However, organic cotton offers a more sustainable alternative to conventionally grown cotton, which protects people and the planet.

Ensuring organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.
The GOTS also ensure farmers and field workers are protected by stringent social criteria and by the ban on the use of poisonous chemicals that can severely affect the health of farmers and their families.
