We value and recognise the impact our brand has on people and the planet; the way we operate stems from the belief that how and where we source our materials is most important.  Our fair-trade factories operate to the highest standards, ensuring the ethical harvesting of raw materials, processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, trading and distribution of textiles. We are strong believers in championing local, natural resources at all times and celebrate the unique produce native to countries across the globe.
