Our partners must comply with our contract which sets out our non-negotiable principles. This code of conduct is based on the International Labour Organisation Conventions and the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code.
Each of our factories is audited, and our team visit our partners every two months to ensure that our code of conduct is being upheld. We have long-standing relationships with our partners, some of which we have collaborated with for more than 10 years.
Our partners do not use cotton originating from Uzbekistan in the production of our garments. For all DECJUBA products containing cotton, our partners must be able to provide and authenticate documentation to prove genuine Country of Origin. Unit the government of Uzbekistan ends the practice of forced child and adult labour in the cotton industry, we will not use cotton sourced from this region.
Animal Cruelty Our partners must adhere to animal rights. We strongly believe that animals must be treated humanely, we have zero tolerance for animal cruelty. We have, in the past walked away from factories who do not share our stance on animal rights.
We work with our suppliers to ensure we have the best leather products. Cow, sheep, and goat hide sourced by our partners are a by-product of other industries. Animals must be humanely slaughtered ensuring minimum distress.
We do not use Angora Rabbit hair products, as they are unable to be sourced ethically.
Our partners provide sanitary toilet facilities and access to clean drinking water at all times.
