  • Strong points

    Social

    - Cut and sewn in an exemplary factory in Tamul Nadu, India where the management have a commitment to ethical production at the core of their vision.

    Workers are fairly paid and provided with everything they need such as a medical room, free lunches and recreation space.  Overtime work is only ever done on a voluntary basis and workers are not allowed to do more than 12 hours per week. (This is in stark contrast to many apparel factories where workers are regularly forced to work excessive hours to meet tight deadlines imposed by big brands). 

    - The factory is independently audited by the Fair Wear Foundation. 

    - Use of organic cotton means that pickers are not exposed to harmful chemicals.

    Environmental

    - Organic cotton (Global Organic Textile Standard-certified) planted and harvested by hand in a region where cotton farming is predominantly rain-fed. (Cotton’s biggest environmental impact worldwide is water use. Rain-fed cotton reduces the impact on waterways).

    - Factory where the t-shirt is cut and sewn is powered entirely by renewable energy (most of which comes from 30 massive wind turbines).

    - Transported without the use of air freight.

     

    Areas for development

    Social

    - While the inspection of Global Organic Textile Standard-certified farms for environmental purposes gives the pickers some measure of security and ensures that they aren’t exposed to harmful chemicals, this certification does not directly guarantee the working conditions of cotton pickers.

    - Idioma’s labels come from China and they cannot vouch for the conditions in which the labels are made

    Environmental

    - This t-shirt was screen printed using plastisol inks. Most commercial screen printers use plastisol inks, which are easy to use and last well. However, plastisol inks contain PVC and phthalates that are harmful to the environment.

    Idioma strive to use water based inks where possible but have found that for dark coloured products with a light print they do not provide the required effect.
