Who makes my products?
We promote a safe, fair, transparent, and accountable fashion industry. The 130+ Italian factories in our network have 2,500+ garment workers. These garment workers have an eight-hour workday, typically 6 days a week, with Sundays off. They also have a couple of weeks off each August during the Italian summer ferragosto holiday, as well as bank holidays, five months of maternity leave, and pension programs, according to Italian law.
Inside the factory, the garment workers are divided into several different stations to cut and sew garments. For example, this can include painting the leather for a shoe, sewing it, applying an inner lining, and attaching the sole, buckles and straps. They produce products for famous brands as well as start up fashion entrepreneurs. Italian garment workers are the most highly skilled artisans in the world.
