Apart from doing special-makes in our Studio, Napier NZ,  we do not own any manufacturing facilities, but we take steps to ensure the partners we work with are managed to the highest possible ethical and social standards.

Design Emporium seeks to work with manufacturers that have accreditation to prove they are World Fair Trading Organisation (WFTO) compliant. The WFTO is a world leading supply chain management system which supports companies in driving compliance and improvements within their supply chains. WFTO provides companies with auditing methodology and reporting tools to help audit, train and influence activities to improve labor conditions and offer safe and positive working environments for factory staff.

Design Emporium currently works with a clothing manufacturing plant based in Indonesia that scores well in the above categories in external WFTO audits and who are committed to improving sustainability practices.

They are the first Apparel Manufacturing plant in Indonesia to acquire this accreditation

As a brand, we want to align with manufacturers who hold the same strong beliefs and are transparent regarding their ethical, social and ecological business standards. These standards fit into 8 key categories:

Protection of Workers and Zero Child Labor
  1. Fair and Equal Pay
  2. Reasonable Working Hours
  3. Clean and Safe Working Environments
  4. Positive Health and Wellbeing
  5. Staff Training and Development
  6. Reduced Inequalities and Gender Equality
  7. Adequate Social Space and Activities

We are adopting progress and working towards a future where we can be certain that every article of clothing from Design Emporium is manufactured in a fair, sustainable and safe factory by a well-paid, well-trained and happy worker.
