Ethical Trade

Kipfashion has developed a set of ethical guidelines (Code of Conduct) that set requirements for us as a retailer and wholesaler as well as all our partners. The guidelines state that everyone involved in our production processes shall have the right to good, safe working conditions in accordance with generally accepted human rights, laws and regulations (the UN’s human rights and the International Labor Organisation’s core conventions). The guidelines are a part of our conditions for purchase, which all our suppliers are obliged to comply with. Our suppliers must take into consideration aspects such as:

  • Respect for laws and regulations
  • No discrimination
  • No form of forced or child labor
  • Right to union membership and collective negotiations
  • Reasonable pay and working conditions
  • Working hours complying with national laws and international conventions
  • Environmental and animal protection

Kipfashion does not own any factories. Regular control and follow up of our manufacturers is therefore one of our priority areas. We have collaborated for several years with an international control and certification company, which has responsibility for inspecting the factories that produce our goods. In addition, we carry out factory visits ourselves on a regular basis.

Kipfashion is Fair Trade company and works closely with our artisan partners to ensure that all our items are produced in ethical, fair labor, and child labor free work environments.  We pride ourselves in our quality control, and work closely with our local artisan partners to ensure their goods meet the needs of our customers worldwide. We believe that granting access to the global marketplace is one way to generate growth in their local communities as well as individual economic independence, and we are delighted to say that all of our handmade vintage items are produced in an ethical work environment that pays a living wage, with a preponderance of our artisan partners being women.

We are firm believers in Fair Trade and our business practices revolve around these principles. All items Kipfashion manufactures adhere to the guidelines of the World Fair Trade Organization. We also collaborate with our customers in the development of new products and ideas, so please feel free to contact us about the production of samples or inquire about creating unique and exclusive items.
