  • Certification by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition for use of the Higg Index to measure and grow their manufacturing processes across Facility Environment and Social Labour practices.

Water Treatment

Our manufacturer has installed a dedicated water treatment plant at the tannery to improve the quality of water that is recycled on site and replaced back into the environment.
