The people who make your clothes

In order to understand our impact – both on the environment and on the people who work in our supply chain – we need to know exactly who makes our clothes.

There are four tiers to our supply chain. Here we’re sharing our tier one suppliers. We’ve worked with many of these suppliers for years, building strong relationships and growing together. We’ve highlighted each one so that you can see exactly who we work with, how often we visit them and how they are audited. We have, however, traced right the way through to tier four of our supply chain, to the source of our bamboo. You can read about that in From Jungle to Jumper.

All four factories carry SMETA or BSCI audits. We visited three of these factories in 2019 and intend to visit all four again in 2021.

“Our relationship with BAM backs to the very beginning. At that time, we were a small manufacturer, BAM was a small brand and we supported each other very much which helped us to grow together quickly. This is one of the aspects in sustainability I like the most; long term, trust-based relationships with customers.”
