Our t-shirts are proudly produced in Bangladesh. Since Bangladesh is known for its poor working conditions and treatment of employees in the garment industry, it is that much more important to set new standards for garment production exactly there, and we believe producing there with respect to the people involved in the whole value chain can impact the industry towards better standards and working conditions in the region. Our partner Stanley/Stella produces the plain t-shirts in Dhaka, Bangladesh, with a 19-person team, monitoring the 5 production factories every day. All of them are GOTS-certified and audited by the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF), of which Stanley/Stella is a recognised member. The t-shirts are then printed in an environmenally-friendly way in Austria by Merchzilla.
Our partner Stanley/Stella, which produces the plain t-shirts for us, is a recognised member of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF). The FWF is an independent non-profit organisation that works with garment brands, factories, trade unions, NGOs and governments to improve working conditions for garment workers in 11 production countries across Asia, Europe and Africa.
The goal of the FWF is to create a new normal for the garment industry. The 130 member brands are showing that there is a fairer way to make clothes, and using their influence to create change. Nevertheless, the goal of the foundation is to create change beyond the member brands’ supply chains. Therefore, they’re also sharing replicable solutions with the rest of the industry. To provide an outlook to other brands and industry influencers of what a fairer garment industry can look like.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain from the farmers to the fibre producers, post-harvest handling, manufacturers and traders.
The aim of the standard is to define world-wide recognized requirements that ensure 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.
Textile processors and manufacturers are enabled to export their organic fabrics and garments with one certification accepted in all major markets.
The plain t-shirts we are using in the production are PETA-certified. This means that no animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finished products are being conducted or commissioned, and the manufacturing company pledges to never do so in the future. Also, they are made from 100% vegan materials so no animals are harmed during its creation.
