Fabrics are based on natural fibres such as 100% cotton and pure wool, or blends including linen, modal (from beech trees), cashmereand silk. The scarves, jewellery and kaftans are environmentally friendly and produced in factories with good working conditions that adhere to the globally recognised 10 Principles of Fair Trade but we have our own procedures for the management of our supply base.
Trading fairly provides these artisans with an opportunity to build a future. It helps businesses develop and creates sustainable employment. Every factory is approved by Sedex or equivalent organisation. Jo's suppliers do not use child or forced labour, there is no discrimination, all working conditions are safe & hygienic and wages must meet minimum legal levels.
