Ethical Production, Sustainability and Giving Back


We Are Sincere is about offering an accessible alternative to fast fashion.

We also want you to know exactly where your pieces have come from; who made your clothes, what they are made from and the impact each part of our supply chain may have.

The world of ethical and sustainable fashion is an increasingly dynamic one. As such, we are constantly working to improve our production processes in regards to people and the environment.

 

ETHICAL PRODUCTION

We are committed to ensuring our production involves ethical working conditions for employees.

Our garments are manufactured in India and Bangladesh and finished in Australia. Each factory carries its own own individual independent accreditations. You will find the factory accreditations applicable to each piece in their product descriptions. All factories are child labor free.

Here are a few of the factory accreditations you may see in our product descriptions:

Fair Wear Foundation

The Fair Wear Foundation is an independent non-profit organisation on a mission to improve working conditions for factory employees across 15 countries.  Learn more about the Fair Wear Foundation.

Child Labor Free 

Child Labor Free is a global certification system that independently assesses each supply chain to confirm products and manufacturers are child labor free

GOTS

GOTS (the Global Organic Textile Standard) is the green standard for worldwide processing of organic fibres, from the ecological to the social impact of the entire supply chain. Products must meet a minimum of 70% organic fibres to be GOTS certified. Manufacturers must also adhere to criteria relating to chemical and toxin input, treatment of workers and risk assessment. Read more on GOTS here.

Fairtrade

Fairtrade advocates for improved working conditions for workers in developing countries; protecting workers' rights, protecting children and the environment. It requires payment of a minimum fairtrade price and an additional premium for investment into local community projects. Learn more here.

 

 

SUSTAINABILITY

We are working towards a collection that is as sustainable as possible. At the moment, the majority of our pieces are made from 100% organic cotton.

Our bespoke stationary, swing tags, business cards and postcards are made by a stationary social enterprise, Words With Heart. The stationary is printed on 100% recycled paper, using eco inks and made with green electricity. Words With Heart also donates 50% of its net profits to education programs for women and girls around the world. 

Our packaging is home compostable and breaks down with your other food scraps in a number of months. Read more here.

Our clothing labels are printed on natural cotton using eco inks.

GIVING BACK

We Are Sincere is a proud member of 1% for the Planet. We donate 1% of all sales to the social movement that supports environmental nonprofit projects around the world.
