WHO MADE OUR CLOTHES
In order to understand the impact we have on the environment and the industry we work in - we need to know exactly who makes our clothes. We value our suppliers and want to be transparent about who we work with and why we work with them.
We aim to work with like minded people within our supply chain and build strong lasting relationships so we can continue producing the best quality product and protecting the values that we hold as a brand.
We work with Lever Style Ltd in Hangzhou, China. The factory is part of a family- run business that started in 1956. We choose to work with them as they have strong ethical practices.
