All clothing made by Hemp Tailors are ethically sourced as much as possible – this clothing is made with the planet in mind. Many other clothes are cheaply made and heavily reliant on nasty chemicals which our planet cannot sustain as quickly as fashion is moving at this very moment. Hemp on the other hand is very durable and with continued wear actually becomes softer and longer lasting.
The way in which Hemp Tailors make their clothing makes a big difference to the health of the planet and our environment of course.
Hemp clothing is the latest movement to increase awareness regarding the environment and to promote organic living. Ethical clothing plays a major part in staying compliant with specified social criteria set by the International Labor Organisation (ILO).
The criteria includes:
- No child labour.
- Employment is freely chosen.
- Working conditions are safe and hygienic.
- Living wages are paid.
- Working hours are not excessive.
- No discrimination is practised.
- Regular employment is provided.
- No harsh or inhumane treatment.
