End to End Control of your Supply Chain

To deliver on our committed to high-quality results, we have eliminated outsourcing from our supply chain, ensuring complete control over the products we deliver.


Our fully integrated supply chain includes control over design, fabric mill selection and factory sourcing, to trim specification, quality control and packaging supply.


End to end control means you have consistent supply, reliable turnaround times, clearer communication and quality assurance.

We use internationally recognised certification programs like Sedex and frameworks like the Global Recycled Standard, Better Cotton Initiative and Textile Exchange to support our ethical sourcing goals. We like to set the standards and define what best practice looks like in our sector.

Supply Chain Compliance with Sedex

Transparency and traceability in our supply chain is crucial to ensuring the individuals crafting our uniforms, and the environment in which they're made are not subjected to exploitation. We cultivate enduring partnerships with suppliers who share our values.


Sedex is a not-for-profit, ethical trade membership organisations, partnering with businesses to improve working conditions in global supply chains.


We use Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audits (SMETA) to give us visibility over our supply chain. Suppliers are assessed against their ability to meet benchmarks in the following four pillars:

 

  • Labour standards

  • Health and safety

  • Business ethics

  • The environment


All of our factory partners are four pillar SMETA audited.

Most materials used for uniform apparel come from farms, forests and fossil fuels. Textile Exchange champions sustainability in the textile industry by ensure the industry treats these valuable resources with respect. Their overarching goal is to help the textile industry to reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions from raw material and fiber production by 45% by 2030.

We are the only Australian uniform provider to use Global Recycled Standard (GRS) Certified recycled materials in our products. Our Fabric Mills, Factories and our Brand are all linked and certified through Textile Exchange.

Responsibly sourced fibres

We align with the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) to address social, economic, and environmental aspects of cotton farming and promote more sustainable cotton production practices.


Sustainable fabric technology represents a revolutionary shift in the textile industry. Responsibly sourced fibres minimise environmental impact by using organic, recycled, or biodegradable materials, and employing processes that conserve water, reduce waste, and lower carbon footprint.


From fabrics crafted from recycled plastics to bio-based alternatives like bamboo or hemp, our sustainable fabric technology delivers a future where style meets environmental stewardship. We offer our customers a conscious choice without compromising on quality or aesthetics.

As a Global Recycled Standard (GRS) certified business, we align ourselves with GRS certified factories ensuring our fabrics are made from a minimum of 50% recycled materials, and are produced in a way that reduces the environmental and social impacts associated with production.

GRS certified factories must provide transparent and accurate track and trace of recycled materials used in production throughout the entire supply chain. This includes documentation and records to ensure the integrity and authenticity of recycled content claims.
