We maintain a Fairtrade policy.
We have been trading with our suppliers for many years and have indeed built up close relationships with them.
We insist on visiting the workshops and small factories to inspect their work practices, to check on how they operate, that they maintain a fair wage policy, work in a safe environment and to check on working conditions.
We pay a fair price for all the items that we buy.
We do not tolerate child labour.
We use natural fabrics such as cotton, hemp, bamboo and recycled fabrics wherever we can for the production of our purses and bags.
Our products are OZO free dyed, or use natural dyes such as Indigo, minerals, or other plant materials.
We have minimised our use of plastic in our business, using eco jiffy bags for our online packaging, paper tape, paper bags, only occasionally recycled plastic carrier bags. We have stopped using plastic pricing ties for our tags. Any plastic packaging we received is reused to stuff our bags for display.
