People

The Goodwill Fabrics group is a family-owned business with two weaving factories in Bhilwara and Gwalior in North India, and four garment factories in Bangalore, in South India. Goodwill employ around 2000 people and are committed to several certifications to ensure fair working conditions, including BSCI and SA8000.

To ensure social responsibility, KCA establishes long term relationships with carefully selected suppliers. In addition to KCA’s own supplier visits, they rely on third-party certification. Social compliance is a part of GOTS that each production step in the supply chain must comply with. This gives KCA the opportunity to ensure that social standards are met throughout their supply chain and not only with their direct supplier.

In addition to GOTS, KCA seeks out suppliers that have been third-party certified by SA8000BSCI and Fairtrade.

Planet

Compared to cotton, flax (from which linen fibres are derived) can be grown with less input, without the use of pesticides and on smaller areas of land. Flax production also replenishes the soil with vital nutrients that are depleted by cotton. 
This overshirt is made to last! Making a product that will stand the test of time is a hugely important aspect of sustainable design.

Country of origin

Suppliers

Linen: China (GOTS certified) 

Shirt: Cut and sewn in India by Goodwill Fabrics Pvt. Ltd. (GOTS certified)

Areas For Development

GOTS living wage policy currently only requires that national legal standards are met. We’d love to see KCA collaborate with an organisation like the Fair Wear Foundation to advance the complex topic of a real living wage for garment workers.
