areas for development

Brava’s partner factories in Spain and Portugal subcontract work on rare occasions when capacity is full. This subcontracting must be approved by Brava product managers and a product manager will visit the subcontracted factory to confirm the factory and working conditions meet Brava’s standard. We'd like to see Brava develop a system for sharing accredited subcontractors with interested parties.

T-Shirt cut and sew: Gabritex, Portugal

Organic cotton: Gabritex, Portugal, cotton grown in India, Turkey, Uganda and Tanzania

worker conditions

Gabritex was established in 1988 and has been improving working conditions ever since 1994. The factory is certified to high working standards and quality production. It is a clean and safe working environment for its employees, all European standards and rules for production are adhered to and corrective action plans are swiftly followed up on. Employees have ongoing training. Gabritex makes 40% of its fabric and when Gabritex needs to subcontract they only use factories that have been audited and have high working standards.

Brava has an employee based in Portugal who checks all their Portuguese factories, in addition to this Brava visit every season.

Brava has drawn up a code of conduct based on the labour principles set out by WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production). Brava sends this document to all their cut and sew factories to sign and follow it. This code covers matters of fair wages, chosen, adult labour, a safe working environment, the freedom to unions and collective bargaining, reasonable working hours, no discrimination, harassment or abuse, environmentally conscious practises, adherence to national laws and custom laws.

The Fair Wear Foundation considers Portugal a low risk country for the production of clothes, meaning that Fair Wear deems there to be functioning institutions and legislation that protect workers rights. Portugal's main labour law is relatively strict in comparison to other garment producing countries and there is a system to lodge complaints.

environmental impact

The use of certified organic cotton protects the environment and also farmers who may suffer ill health when coming into contact with the intensive fertilisers and pesticides used in conventional cotton production.

All of Brava's cut and sew and fabric processing factories are based in Europe, they are obligated to follow the EU laws on chemical and colour handling and methods, and the discarding of chemicals and dyes.
