The vocation of ETHICAL TRADE PLACE® is to make sure that the designers respect the Charter of good conduct.
The quality of the answers to the questionnaire (available upon request) is determining for the referencing in the website.
1. Fashion designed and produced in conditions that respect people :
Respecting working conditions in accordance with International Labour Organisation conventions, i.e.:
> Banning forced labour.
Ethical fashion contributes to the development of communities through sustainable actions:
> Long-term business relationships.
Respecting intellectual property:
> Ethical fashion always bears the designer's name.
2. Fashion which decreases the environmental impact of the textile industry, from fabric design to manufacturing to recycling :
By favouring the use of raw materials and agents which have the least possible impact on the environment (during their production, use, and removal).
> Promoting recovered or recycled raw materials (agricultural, plastic…), or low polluting materials (hemp, linen, organic cotton...).
3. Fashion which preserves traditional skills :
By promoting partnerships with local artisans, ethical fashion ensuresthat culture-specific skills are promoted, sustained, and maintained.
> Ethical fashion seeks to avoid uniformity in design. Local skills give designs a diversity and uniqueness which symbolises different cultures, personalities, and styles.
