What you don’t see…Posted on February 4, 2015 by ClaireL
We often get asked by Oxford students where our products come from and if they are fairtrade and ethical. Both of these qualities are important to us as we strive to be a responsible trader. Over the past year we have been quietly working away in the background checking our products, where they come from and who makes them. A sign of our progress in this area is that you may have noticed more and more of our clothing is being made from fairtrade cotton.
Further to that we have also been supporting companies closer to home, Chapman who make our luxury handmade canvas bags are in Cumbria while some of our jumpers are made in Scotland. For us it is easy to visit the factories and it is always exciting to see our products being made.
So, next time you buy something from us you can be safe in the knowledge that we are checking so you don’t have to.
