We’re committed to making clothes with a smaller environmental impact in places that treat workers well. So, when it comes to choosing where we make our clothes, we look at a number of different factors - quality, price, speed, reduced environmental impact, and working conditions for the people in the facility. Our partners share a common vision of sustainability, accountability, and transparency. We published Our Factories list so you can learn more about the factories behind our clothes.

An audit is just a snapshot in time, so we prioritize active continuous improvement, root cause analysis and development of necessary management systems.
We work with 17 finished goods factories in Los Angeles, and 11 subcontractor facilities (e.g. printers and embroiderers). Internationally, we have 14 suppliers across 18 factories in China, Mexico, Turkey, Morocco, Portugal, and India.*

We currently require all our direct cut, sew & finish manufacturing partners to adhere to our Code of Conduct and additional policies (basically our requirements for ethical operations), and be monitored for compliance and continuous improvement. Our Code of Conduct references the Global Social Compliance Programme’s (GSCP) Code of Conduct which represents international standards for fair labor conditions and fundamental labor rights. 

We require our suppliers to participate in independent, third-party social assessments to ensure fair, safe and healthy working conditions throughout our supply chain. The goal of our assessments is not only to help evaluate our supplier’s overall compliance but to also identify progress and stimulate improvement. All substandard audit findings must be remediated in a timely manner.

Here’s an abbreviated version of our Sustainable Partners Guidebook that highlights our Code of Conduct, auditing and monitoring requirements, and our RSL.
