Transparency: Supply Chain Traceability
Meet our European Network of Makers
WHAT'S THE STORY BEHIND OUR CLOTHES?
Few of us know anymore how our clothes are made, not to say where do they come from. The truth is, most of the fashion pieces that we can buy today have travelled from all over the world and have behind them nasty stories of human and environmental exploitation. But it doesn't need to be that way.
We think that companies today should be fully transparent and disclose to their customers their supply chains and their impact. And we want to pave the way for that. Because when we buy a product, we're also buying the story behind it.
Below is all our supply chain. A quick guide to navigating it, any fashion supply chain has 4 steps. Fibres come from the ground being raw materials, that's what you can see under our farms. Then farmers sell this to specialised mills that turn the raw crop into yarn. This yarn is then shipped to another mill, that turns it into the fabric that is used to make our clothes. And lastly, brands buy the yarn and commission a workshop to cut and sew their pieces: you can see under our workshops who has made your clothes.
And remember! When you check out any items in our shop page, we tell you exactly which of these makers where engaged in bringing to life that specific product.
