We care that our products are having a positive impact on the communities who are making them and not exploiting people or the environment. We are a small company, so have to carefully choose manufacturing suppliers that have solid, responsible practices and transparency in their supply chains.
We source all of our t-shirts, bags, sweatshirts, and dresses from ascolour - a New Zealand company who manufacture in hand picked factories in Bangladesh and China. Their social responsabilty page can be seen here.
Ascolour have been certified as Child Labour Free, W.R.A.P compliant, a signatory of the Accord on Fire and Building safety in Bangladesh, and all of their factories are regularly audited to ensure they meet ascolour's code of conduct. This maintains standards of being safe, fair, legal and humane. There is more information about ascolour’s production in this FAQ.
Our notebooks are made of 100% FSC recycled paper here in New Zealand.
Here in Days Bay, New Zealand we use low environmental impact water-based inks and screen print all products by hand.
