figleaves.com ensure that looking fabulous does not come at the expense of others. We are members of the Ethical Trade Initiative which looks out for those making our clothes and helps to improve our working conditions.

Our Code of Conduct sets out the core principles that our suppliers must follow to ensure that our products are manufactured in safe working conditions and that the people that make them are treated fairly and paid a fair wage, wherever they are based in the world.

It is based on the Ethical Trade Initiative base code www.ethicaltrade.org/eti-base-code which is founded on the conventions of the International Labour Organisation, which sets worldwide standards of labour practice.

The Ethical Trade Initiative is a ground breaking alliance of retailers, manufacturers, trade unions and voluntary organisations. We are proud to be a part of this initiative and work together to improve the working lives of people all over the world.

Will ‘Our Values’ work?

We regularly check our suppliers by using certified audit companies as well as using internal resource. We recognise that we have a responsibility to act ethically wherever we source in the world.
