We're trying to boost our leather supply chain. We joined the Leather Working Group in 2013, an organisation that establishes industry benchmarks and audits tanneries for environmental performance in key risk areas such as chemical and waste management, energy use, air pollution, and water treatment. Tanneries that are environmentally conscious are given a Gold, Silver, or Bronze rating.
What Does Made In Mean
The mark "made in china" — or "made anywhere else in the world" — only applies to an item's final stop on a journey that is usually global. The terms "made in" refer to the location where a garment is knit or sewn in the case of clothes.
Our supply chains are well-considered and diverse. They begin by looking for the finest fibres. We choose mills with the highest level of expertise—Italy for spinning wool and cashmere, China for silk. Almost every garment we make has a long journey ahead of it.
The Handloom Project: Rural Artisans in India
Our community investment project aims to promote social and economic empowerment in the villages where our scarves are handwoven by 500 artisans.
Japan: The Art of Shibori
Our scarves are hand-dyed by artisans with decades of experience in Narumi, a village steeped in the shibori tradition. Until the fabric is dyed, it is stitched, folded, or clamped, resulting in patterns that look like time-lapse images, but instead of light, record form and pressure—each one is special.
