Our Commitment to Supply Chain Transparency

Transparency: It’s the foundation of ethical fashion.In honor of Fashion Revolution Day 2016, we’d like to present to you with a glimpse into our supply chain that we’ve been developing with care over the past year: Pakistan is one of the largest producers of high quality cotton and has an extensive network of mills that spin the cotton into yarn and weave the yarn into a finished fabric.
