How much are workers paid?Updated 2 years ago

We currently work with one factory based in Noida near Delhi, and we have a close partnership with the team there. The people who make our clothes are as important as the people who buy them, so we are making sure we have a close working relationship and that we look after the factory workers and team well.

Our factory is a member of Sedex, short for Supplier Ethical Data Exchange. The Sedex database is a widely recognised online platform where registered companies openly share information about their social and ethical performance.

Membership demonstrates that work is compliant with the principles of ethically and socially sustainable production methods. Additionally, the platform produces valuable insights into labour conditions. The Sedex platform has a significant positive impact on the improvement of ethically responsible business practices across the entire value chain. Whilst we’ve selected to work only with factories that pay good wages to their staff compared to some organisations, our size and the fact that the factory we work with, also produces clothes for other brands means that we can’t increase wages directly.

Instead, through the Unfolded Worker Fund, we pay a bonus to all staff at our partner factory after each collection has been delivered. For Collection 2 each worker received circa 1,000 rupees in extra pay.
