LIVING CRAFTS, as a company, is conscious of its responsibility towards nature and the environment. Hence, all of our production processes are geared towards that. To us, cooperating with and being fair with regard to the environment, our suppliers and customers is of the utmost importance.
In addition to paying attention to the certification of our textiles pursuant to Control Union, we are also particularly interested in the socioeconomic standards at our production sites. Most of our factories work in accordance with the SKAL guidelines as well as the SA 8000 social standards. Fair trade is a matter that is close to our heart. This includes adequate wages, fair working conditions and long-term partnership contracts with our producers. Naturally, we also pay attention that ecological requirements are met at our production sites abroad as well. This is mainly about adequate storage places, cleanness and the right treatment of our raw materials without the use of pesticides and herbicides.
Our site in Germany is by no means excluded from our socioeconomic ambitions. Here, we endeavour, as much as we can, to work on the area of conservation and toward social justice.
Independent institutes such as Control Union (CU) check whether we adhere to our guidelines. The tests are carried out by the various manufacturing companies themselves in accordance with our quality directives. In addition, we have our textiles checked regularly by external laboratories which test them for harmful substances.
