We are so proud and grateful to work with such an incredible organisation who truly have sustainability at their core. It is a pleasure working with them and our relationship is built on trust, respect and appreciation for the artisan craft methods they use. By working with Mehera Shaw and hand block printing our fabrics, we actively support and promote small-scale decentralised production, artisan work and skills, celebrate the cultural identity of the workers involved in our supply chain, and support the preservation of heritage artisan crafts and traditions of India.
We also want to let you know about the social standards which protect all the workers involved in growing, milling and weaving our GOTS organic cotton.
GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standard and is the current, worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres. It relies on on-site inspection and certification of all processors, manufacturers and traders involved, which is performed by independent specially accredited bodies. Every step of the production process, from the growing of the cotton to the spinning and milling of it, is all certified and every person involved is protected by the high quality GOTS environmental and social standards. The social standards include but are not limited to:
No child labour
Guaranteed living wages
Protection against excessive working hours and discrimination
Safe and hygienic working conditions
Learn more about GOTS certified organic cotton and it's impact on the planet on our ‘Environmental Commitments’ page.
Product Retail Impact:
In line with our vision to help everyone have a safe night’s sleep, we decided to partner with Kent-based charity Oasis, who are on a mission to keep victims of domestic abuse safe, help rebuild lives and create lasting change.
We donate £5 from every item we sell to Oasis to support the vital work they do, which includes running two refuges which offer families a safe night’s sleep, and providing an array of incredible support and prevention services.
On the first of every new month, we make a donation to Oasis based on the orders of the month before last, so that we have given all customers their 30 days return window.
We also have a donate option on our shop page allowing you to contribute to this crucial cause, even if you are not making a purchase. You can read more about our social mission here.
If you or someone you know are affected by domestic abuse, or would like any more information on this topic please click here.
