At Threading Water, one of our mantras is to "do as much good as possible." We take this very seriously, and it extends to every part of our business, including our supply chain. It is our promise that we will never sell any product that is not ethically made. Sweat shops are NOT ok. Paying people below-market wages is NOT ok. Child labor is NOT ok.
To ensure this high standard is met, we conduct business with factories that are WRAP certified. Read below to find out more about what this means, or visit wrapcompliance.org for more information.
Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) is a non-profit dedicated to promoting safe, lawful, humane and ethical manufacturing around the world through certification and education. The WRAP certification program mainly focuses on the apparel, footwear and sewn products sectors.
