What Our Suppliers Are Saying
In terms of materials, we mainly use natural fibres. We favour organic fabrics that care for your skin and for the environment. And since the planet is no laughing matter, we have obtained the strictest environmental certifications and labels on the market for our entire production chain.
Are we talking about ethics and sustainable development? Yes, a bit! First, because we love to talk and secondly because it’s an inexhaustible subject. Unlike the resources of our planet or human beings. And that is why we work exclusively with exemplary factories that protect rights of the men and women they employ and do their utmost to minimize their environmental footprint. Respect! - Stanley Stella
We all have a right to a safe and healthy work environment, a living wage, a legally binding contract. We all have a right to be free from discrimination and harassment, to join - or not to join - a labour union, to choose our work freely. We all have a right to fair and reasonable working hours. And our children have a right to go to school.

Ethical Threads are committed to ensuring that products are sourced from manufacturers who comply with the core International Labour Organization conventions
Ethical is a very broad term and initially our main concern was the fair treatment of workers all the way through the supply chain, using International labour standards as our guide. Though this is very much still the case, we have broadened our policy to include environmental & health concerns and now intend to phase in entirely organic cotton stock. We are determined to use Fair Trade certified cotton, where possible, so that the farmers who toil in the fields receive a fair price for their part. - Ethical Threads
