There are many people working in the textile sector. Unfortunately, a lot of them still function under very poor social conditions. A good, long-term relationship with our suppliers forms the basis for addressing these social problems in production processes. It also improves the work's quality and raises the factories to a higher level, due to training.
For years, WE Fashion has been committed to improving social conditions for employees in production countries and processes. We do not have our own factories, but work together with specialised suppliers. As a result, we have managed to build a solid and strong social management system that monitors working conditions. It also implements improvements, leading to progress in workers' lives.
The textile chain is very extensive and includes many steps, all contributing to the creation of our clothes. The process goes from farmer to trader, spinner, weaver, sewing factory, laundry and distribution centre. Within these steps, fibres, fabrics and clothes are traded, transported and stored. We therefore consider it vital to ensure proper working conditions and respect for human rights within this extensive process. Furthermore, we contribute to the gradual improvement of environmental conditions.
In the years to come, we want to structurally improve sustainability within the supply chain. In doing so, we focus on all factories we work with. It's our job to monitor problems closely and remedy them wherever possible. Therefore, we continue to look for relevant projects and initiatives from other companies, governments and stakeholders in which WE Fashion can join.
WE Fashion focuses on three themes and goals to achieve the above:
- Improving social conditions in production
- Improving the living conditions of employees
- Improving the environment in production and surrounding communities
