“Earth Couture designs organic glamour for urban sophisticates – loungewear of timeless appeal for modern eco-conscious women everywhere”
ETHICAL FOCUS, CERTIFICATION AND STANDARDS
With our timeless glamorous designs made with CU/GOTS (Control Union / Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic cotton, we strive to work against throwaway fashion that ends up in landfills. Sourcing our materials by means that follow the Organic Exchange standards, our garments are designed and created to not only be more environmentally friendly and biodegradable but also more lovable. Our new collection also uses the super soft hypo-allergenic sustainable fabric Lyocell.
Our focus on organic materials is complemented through in our packaging that is made from recycled paper, cardboard and plastics.
BUSINESS STRUCTURE AND PRACTICES
We are a small family owned private limited company focused on employing and working with individuals who can benefit by working for Earth Couture. Our selected staff shares our passion for sustainable fashion and therefore add value to both their lives and our company.
Improving lives and supporting villages in Africa, each Earth Couture purchase donates mosquito coils to Itako in Lagos, Nigeria. Along with using organic and recycled materials, we are very particular with waste and try to recycle all unused produce to help our part in landfill reduction. We are also keen to help the environment by utilising natural sunshine instead of electricity.
SOURCING, SUPPLY CHAIN POLICIES AND FACTORIES
Striving against sweatshops and unfair working conditions, we visit each factory before proceeding to work with them. Currently we work with energy efficient factories in Portugal and China that have very favourable environments. Our organic materials are sourced following the Organic Exchange standards. Our Indigo collection is made in Nigerian villages that also help support traditional textile dying techniques.
We make sure no sweatshops are used and that the workers have a favourable lifestyle and working environment.
By visiting our factories frequently we make sure our working environment is very favourable and that all our factory workers get tea breaks, sustainable salaries, lunch breaks, and of course bathroom breaks.
FAIR TRADE, CULTURE AND SKILLS
We are very particular in paying our staff fair and sustainable wages as to better their lives. The working conditions are very favourable and we pay according to current market prices. All our factories, packaging, and workers uphold respectable social and environmental standards.
