Ethical Certifications

We want you to know what ethical certifications each product carries.  So above each product in our catalogue is an icon which shows you the certification for that product.

If you click on the icon you will be given more information and often a link to that site.

Our main certifications/codes are:-


Fairtrade Logo.jpgFairtrade Certified

We consider this the highest level of ethical certification in the clothing industry.  The monitoring begins with the cotton farmers.  Through the Fairtrade premium the farmers are guaranteed a fair price for their cotton.  Monitoring continues to take place and includes the spinning, weaving, dye process, cutting, sewing, printing and embroidery.
