Responsible production 

Producing clothes without harming people, the planet and the animals we share it with. 

Kings Of Indigo has been a proud member of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) since the very beginning. We offer you guarantees of fair and safe working conditions for all those who contribute to making beautiful garments for us. Our CSR department is in frequent contact with a strong network of external, independent parties to safeguard responsible production. If you would like to find out even more about sustainability at K.O.I, please find our full sustainability report here.

Fair Wear Foundation


Fair Wear Foundation's mission is to improve the working conditions in the garment supply chain worldwide. With the FWF membership, we are committed to follow the “Code of Labour Practice” in all production facilities. This code is based on the principles 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. Fair Wear does an annual Brand Performance Check to ensure the correct implementation and following through of the Code of Labour Practice. For the financial year 2020 we have been categorized GOOD with a score of 73/100 and a monitoring threshold 96/100%.

BSCI


As global supply chains become more complex, improving the production visibility and social performance of a company is important. The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is a movement that monitors and assesses workplace standards across the global supply chain.


Companies shouldn’t just ensure their own business is responsible, but that their suppliers too are 100% socially responsible. A social audit is one of the best ways to understand the working conditions at a supplier site. The BSCI program doesn't work with certifications, it is a voluntary system by which BSCI members (retailers and brands) work with their suppliers to be in compliance with the BSCI code of conduct. Kings Of Indigo works with BSCI to ensure workers throughout our supply chain are being treated fairly with their rights well respected.


SMETA


SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit) is the most widely used social audit in the world, enabling businesses to assess their sites and suppliers to understand working conditions in their supply chain. SMETA assesses a site based on their organization’s standards of labor, health and safety, environment and business ethics.




We are committed to producing high quality and ethically manufactured products and intend to only do business with suppliers that share our commitment to make a strong product in a socially and environmentally conscious way. Our Restricted Substance List (RSL) is the base for monitoring the use of chemicals in all King Of Indigo products. This listing includes, but is not limited to, finished products, including apparel, non-apparel, accessories, packaging, trims and other products.


PETA Approved


People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world. PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most, for the longest periods of time: in laboratories, the food industry, the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. 








Our PETA-approved vegan logo marks products that contain no animal derived components whatsoever: no leather, fur, wool, silk or animal skin. The Kings Of Indigo collection is 99% PETA approved. The only thing standing in the way of reaching that 100% is our love of wool, fully recycled wool that is.
