Many of our suppliers adhere to several internationally recognised industry standards and guidelines to ensure the ethical and social impacts of their actions are accounted for.* All accreditations are listed below for further information on industry standards and what they mean.

*These are correct to our knowledge from the information provided by the suppliers.

Amfori BSCI: 

The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is a leading supply chain management system that supports companies to drive social compliance and improvements within the factories and farms in their global supply chains. BSCI implements the principle of international labour standards protecting workers’ rights. 

Better Cotton Initiative (BCI): 

Better Cotton is the world’s largest cotton sustainability programme. Its mission is to help cotton communities survive and thrive while protecting and restoring the environment. They are making cotton farming a more climate-resilient, environmentally friendly and responsible business. 

Ethical Trading Initiative:

For more than 20 years, Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) and its members have been a driving force in ethical trade. They influence businesses to act responsibly and promote decent work. Taking a unique approach to business and human rights, their members are forward-thinking companies, trade unions and NGOs.


Facility and Merchandise Authorization (FAMA) is the certification authorised by Disney. FAMA are committed to respecting human rights, monitoring the safety and integrity of products, and reducing the environmental footprint of their supply chain. All facilities certified to FAMA must comply with these standards.

Fair Labor Association:

FLA helps improve the lives of workers around the world. FLA creates lasting solutions to abusive labour practices by offering tools and resources, delivering training to factory workers and management, conducting due diligence through independent assessments, and advocating for greater accountability and transparency from companies, manufacturers, factories and others involved in global supply chains.

Fair Wear Foundation:

Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) is a non-profit organisation that works with garment brands, factories, trade unions, NGOs and governments to improve working conditions for garment workers in 11 production countries across Asia, Europe and Africa.


By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.

Global Recycled Standard:

The Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) and Global Recycled Standard (GRS) are international, voluntary standards that set requirements for third-party certification of recycled input and chain of custody. The shared goal of the standards is to increase the use of recycled materials. The GRS includes additional criteria for social and environmental processing requirements and chemical restrictions.

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS):

The aim of Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is to define worldwide recognised requirements that ensure the organic status of textiles – from the harvesting of raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing, to labelling – to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.


If a textile article carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be certain that all components – i.e. every thread, button and accessory – have been tested for harmful substances and that each article, therefore, is harmless to human health.

Organic 100 Content Standard & Organic Content Blended Standard:

The Organic Content Standard (OCS) relies on third-party verification to verify that a final product contains the accurate amount of a given organically grown material. It does not address the use of chemicals or any social or environmental aspects of production beyond the integrity of the organic material. The OCS uses the chain of custody requirements of the Content Claim Standard (CCS).

Peta Approved Vegan:

The ‘PETA – Approved Vegan’ logo allows companies that sell apparel, accessories, furniture or home decor to highlight their vegan offerings, helping consumers find animal-free products at a glance and make purchases that align with their values.


REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. UK REACH applies to many chemical substances; those used in industrial processes and daily life. UK REACH places the burden of proof on companies. Companies are required to identify and manage the risks present by substances they manufacture and market in Great Britain.
