Fairly produced clothing
Even today, producing clothing is a challenging handicraft where only some steps can be made easier or taken over by machines. The rest is, and will remain, manual work. Several people are involved in making each individual product. Every single person who works in this chain is important. Their work must be protected and fairly remunerated. Unfortunately it's still standard practice for many companies to produce their clothes in inhumane conditions. It is now time for us to take responsibility for our own consumption. Fair wages, regulated working times, health insurance, important working safety conditions and of course a ban on child labour are therefore basic requisites at bleed. As well as protecting these requirements through GOTS and Fairwear certification with individual companies, we also have contracts between us and the producers to regulate these requirements and even go beyond the requirements of the certificate. The bleed team is regularly on site at production. Personal, long-lasting relationships to small family businesses make it possible for us to develop together and build trust.

Independent institutions also regularly check the complete manufacturing process, including spinning, dying, printing, producing, weaving and knitting, as well as the raw material plantations, according to social criteria.
