Ethical Sourcing Policy
Collectif is a long standing, committed retailer of high quality vintage inspired fashion and as such, we recognize our responsibility to ensure that our production facilities and suppliers operate to the highest possible ethical and safety standards.
We design our clothing in London, UK and produce our collections in the UK, Romania, Armenia and the Far East. We are very proud to own and maintain high quality production facilities in the Far East, which are staffed and managed by Collectif staff. These facilities are safe, fair and maintained in line with national regulations. All employees work reasonable hours, receive fair pay and holidays and have the right to join a union, should they wish.
As above, we also utilizes production facilities in the UK and Europe and expect these facilities to maintain the same high levels of health and safety and ethics. All of the above are monitored regularly to ensure environments are to the highest possible standard and Collectif never knowingly do business with any suppliers who are not in line with their country's national employment laws and regulations with particular regard to: minimum age of employment, freely chosen employment, health and safety, freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining. No discrimination, no harsh or inhumane treatment, working hours, rates of pay and terms of employment.
Due to the sometimes complex nature of our supply chain and the supply chains of those we work with, it is not always possible to monitor and control the conditions of every individual involved. However, Collectif continue to acknowledge the importance of doing all we can to ensure fair and safe working conditions for all and as we grow, will continue to do all we can to maintain the rights of those who help us bring our products to you.
These issues are important to us and we know they are to you too, so if your question is not answered here, we do encourage you to get in contact and we will do all we can to answer your query.
