Our Ethical Policy
Promoting responsible and sustainable business is one of our top priorities, and we are constantly striving to do all we can to reduce our environmental footprint.
Owning our factory allows us to enforce our own strict codes of ethics surrounding environmental practice and the occupational wellbeing of our members of staff. Along with our in-house labeling standard - Bags of EthicsTM, our efforts have been recognised and certified by many. Read more below.
Bags of EthicsTM
The Bags of Ethics label is our own in house standard. It promotes the people and the planet behind the product – the designers, famers, tailors, customers and environment. It is a positive label that recognises those who have made conscious efforts to promote environmentally and socially sustainable practice.
We are delighted to have our practice acknowledged by Fairtrade – an international labeling standard that allows customers to display solidarity with those involved in the producing their commodities. They have strict codes of ethics centered on fair wages, occupational safety and wellbeing, and environmental practice. We also offer Fairtrade certified cotton options.
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)
The Global Organic Textile Standard is recognised as the predominant processing standard for organic textile fibres. It requires producers to operate under strict criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and also requires compliance to social criteria. We are proud to offer GOTS certified organic cotton.

Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation & Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) The Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation & Restriction of Chemicals is an EU standard that focuses on the production and use of various chemical substances, and their potential impacts on human health and the natural world.
