From the conception of our brand “doing the right thing” has been important to our team and customers. We believe it is the responsibility of every individual to be a good human, and while being a small player in a global market can at times be daunting, we believe our impact on human rights can be just as significant as larger operations and that we can all make a difference.

How We Source

We seek to find and work with factory owners and management who share our values, operate a culture of dignity and respect, are in for the long term, and who like us are willing to embrace change and continuous improvement.

The suppliers that we choose to partner with are all certified regarding working conditions and social responsibilities.  We do not believe in demanding the cheapest price from our suppliers as it can affect the quality of our garments and put pressure on suppliers to outsource to a less accredited factory. Our relationships with our factories and their employees are important to us and we work hard to maintain them.

We believe that every person in our supply chain is an equal and a friend and should be treated in kind. All workers deserve a fair, living wage and high-quality working conditions. Our workmates across the world are all highly skilled in their roles and we respect them greatly for this.

Better Cotton Initiative

Okthro is committed to improving cotton farming practices globally and it is why our factories join the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI).

BCI works with a diverse range of stakeholders across the cotton supply chain to promote measurable and continuing improvements for the environment, farming communities and the economies of cotton-producing areas.

BCI aims to transform cotton production worldwide by developing Better Cotton as a sustainable mainstream commodity.
