We’re committed to making clothes with a smaller environmental impact in places that treatworkers
well. So, when it comes to choosing where we make our clothes, we look at a num-ber of
different factors - quality, price, speed, reduced environmental impact, and working conditions for the people
in the facility. Our partners share a common vision of sustainabil-ity, accountability, and transparency. We
published Our Factories list so you can learn more about the factories behind our clothes. Transparency is key
to accountability, which is why we disclose 100% of Tier 1 finished goods manufacturers and subcontractors
within our supply chain. We have aligned with the Transparency Pledge and are participating in the
Open Apparel Registry (OAR) to expand on the details that are made public so we can be
more accountable for the working conditions in our partner factories.

Hand-spinning is the most time taking and painstaking process that needs to be performed very carefully. Lots of dedication and patience is required during this procedure that is quite interesting to watch.
Pashmina wool is highly delicate for the vibration caused by the power looms. Therefore, weaving of the customary 100% Pashmina Shawls is done on hand looms. Weaving which is from itself an art is done using a shuttle. This procedure has been passed over from generations to generations. A single shawl takes about four days to weave on a handloom.
Like spinning, dyeing is also performed by hand. Azo-free and metal dyes are used during the process to make the complete eco-friendly shawls. Pure water is pumped up from deep under the surface. The dyeing is done at a temperature just less than the boiling point for around an hour.
