  • Zurii is lacking transparency around its supply chain. It does not communicate whether it is taking adequate steps to ensure payment of a living wage and fair working conditions for its workers. Nothing is in place to encourage responsible consumption and sustainable production and no information is given about packaging. The website does not list sufficient supply chain information to give it a higher rating; origin of materials, material production, exact manufacturing location, or the social, environmental and economic impacts.
  • Zulu & Zephyr use a lot of recycled fabric: Econyl (regenerated nylon), Repreve (a polyester fibre made from recycled plastic) and recycled cotton. All materials or products hold a Standard 100 Oeko-tex certification. Other fabric used include hemp, linen and organic cotton. All fabric dye complies with the Oeko-Tex® 100 Standard to keep waters and fabric toxic-free. Organic cotton, even though it’s a good option, requires high water consumption to grow. The brand uses recycled paper and biodegradable packaging. Unfortunately, Zulu & Zephyr do not disclose enough information about their factories to give the brand a higher rating. Factories are in Indonesia, China and India (no Provinces or states specified) and the brand has a code of conduct but there is no evidence it ensures a living wage is paid to workers in its supply chain. More transparency is required.

  • Garments by Zhivago look like well-constructed pieces, and the brand has a reliable following. They market themselves as cruelty-free and vegan.

  • Polyester/Spandex and polyester fabrics are a huge micro-plastic issue for our water ways and oceans. Need greater transparency of the social, environment and economic impact of these fabrics within the supply chain. A better choice of sustainable fabrics would position this brand better within the industry.
  • Wyatt Wylde steers clear of fast fashion by producing pieces to be wearable all year around, not just for the season. They state that the brand is manufactured by a family run business with similar ethical values but it is not clear to what standard this is. Definitley need more transparency all around.
  • We have issues with the use of nylon if it's in it's primary life. Produced from oil, it is an energy intensive process. High in CO2 emmissions, microplastics end up in the ocean and as its not biodegradable, if it ends up in landfill will take decades to break down.
  • WOOLF Leather goods are all handcrafted in Bali, Indonesia. The brand states that it sources ethically but there is nothing to support this claim. Plastic use is minimised in the packaging process and goods are shipped in reusable cotton dust bags. Production-wise, the brand states that it only does small production runs ethically, however there are no audits, certifications or policies in place to ensure this. While WOOLF Leather claims to be ethical, the brand lacks transparency across all areas of its supply chain and therefore cannot be given a higher rating.
  • WodUp's purpose is ensuring a minimal wastage, ethically created and sustainably sourced activewear brand. There is full disclosure on their manufacturing conditons in China where it is BSCI certified, and workers are paid fairly. There is disclosure on materials which are recyled and they even have a blog page with information about being conscious about slow fashion and not 'stacking up' clothes.
