We like to know who we’re working with. Before we enter a partnership, we visit all our suppliers and factories to find out if there’s a good fit. For us, a good fit means a supplier who can sign off on our supplier manual that details our responsibility to the environment and people. 

This basically means that we want to be sure our entire supply chain is acting in accordance with how we run our company and how we want to do things. For example, we only work with suppliers who have sustainable production, or those who have taken an active decision to make positive changes towards sustainability. We know changes take time, we know because we’re still changing the way we’re doing things. And we also know good things don’t happen overnight, so we don’t expect our suppliers to perform miracles either. However, small steps, in the right direction from all of us, add up and make a difference.
