All the clothing made by Hemp Tailor is designed with the planet in mind with the use and promotion of organic and natural hemp and cotton fibres. Cotton is one of the most eco-destructive materials available due to its heavy use of pesticides and insecticides.
Hemp Tailor strives to use only 100% organic cotton and hemp in their fibre blends to ensure maximum sustainability.
Naturally weather and UV resistant, versatile, and cost effective to grow and produce, hemp is an excellent mascot for the larger Irish and global green movement. Indeed, 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 Labour 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
Staying compliant with the following measures ensures high quality of products created through healthy and sustainable relationships with the manufacturers and suppliers. Most of these facilities are family owned and Hemp Tailor is proud to use their centuries old wisdom, expertise, and craftsmanship to create environment friendly, sustainable and ethical hemp and organic cotton clothing.
