Sixexport is a family owned factory of sixty eight employees. It has been running for fifteen years making woven garments and articles.

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.


The use of recycled polyester helps use up the global excess of plastic waste. Brava source their plastic from textile waste, supplied by Tintex.

Brava use a controlled chemical dyeing process with only nonhazardous chemicals. This means all their factories follow European and any local regulations on dyeing that protect employees from exposure to chemicals. Brava prefer to use chemical dyes over organic ones to reach more vibrant colour intensity.

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.

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.
