As part of our Full Traceability standard, we’re committed to visiting and documenting as many of our factories as possible. More specifically, our standard requires us to visit all Tier 1 (Cutting, Sewing, Laundry) and Tier 2 (Spinning, Knitting, Weaving, Dyeing) facilties. Where possible we go all the way down to Tier 3 (the farms). This degree of proximity to our manufacturing partners helps us make better decisions and build stronger partnerships. But it’s also a crucial part of our promise to showcase our factories to you, so you can discover the many places, people and steps involved in creating our clothing. There are no shortcuts in creating long lasting quality and we believe every part of the process needs to be seen, to better appreciate our clothing and ultimately make better purchasing decisions.
