We are committed to ensuring we reach full traceability across our supply chain.

Our Somewhere line has full traceability from farm to finished garment, meaning that we can trace the supply chain right back to the farms the fibres were produced. We work closely with our local and global textile mills to achieve this.

All suppliers and manufacturers we work with have signed our Supplier Code of Conduct which outlines the standards we expect to be upheld including animal welfare, environmental management, chemical and water use, greenhouse gas emissions, living wage, working conditions and waste management.
