For Kings of Indigo not only beautiful products and environmentally friendly production are important, but also fair working conditions and a fair wage for all the people that work for the brand. Kings of Indigo is a proud member of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) since 2012.
The international verification initiative FWF made it its mission to improve the working conditions in the garment supply chain worldwide. With the FWF membership Kings of Indigo committed to follow the “Code of Labour Practice” in all its production facilities. This code is based on the principals of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the Universal Declaration on Human Rights.
It defines high-level standards for the working conditions to enhance the quality of life for workers.With the yearly Brand Performance Check FWF checks the implementation of that code and makes sure that it is followed properly.
