OUR SOCIAL COMMITMENT
Clothes are made by people. It may seem like stating the obvious, and if you’re here you probably know this very well. But it seems like it’s often easy to forget, as the prices that we often pay for clothes are not enough for brands to pay living wages to the people who make them.
We are committed to paying the people who make our clothes fair living wages, and to ensure that all the workers across our supply chain are also paid fair living wages. That’s why transparency is a core tenet of our strategy, why we travel to each of our factories and suppliers and ask (very uncomfortable) questions about how much are workers paid.

ANA MARI, THE HEAD SEAMSTRESS AT FUNDACIO ARED, WHO MANAGES THE PRODUCTION OF ALL OUR WEAVED FABRIC PIECES
We wish that it wasn’t necessary to ask all those questions, but the reality is that most fashion today is produced in sweatshops and that exploitative practices are not exclusive to emerging economies, but well present in European countries.
All our clothes are sourced and produced in Europe, from the fields where the plants that our fabrics are made of grow, to the factories where our clothes are stitched. We know our fabric mills, we know the fields where the fabric comes from, we know our machinists. For us this is fundamental to how we work as a business. You can get to know them too by navigating our supply chain transparency page, or by clicking on the product journey under each of our products to understand exactly where they come from.
