Specifically, this is done by defining and implementing internationally valid production standards for eco-friendly textiles and leather as well asby awarding a quality seal for products meeting these standards.
Driven by a commitment to sustainability, MADE-BY’s overall mission is to make sustainable fashion common practice.
MADE-BY, a European not-for-profit organisation, works with fashion brands who want to improve sustainability across their entire supply chain, from raw materials through to finished products.
Partner brands are supported in implementing good environmental and social standards that can be developed and maintained within a commercial environment. MADE-BY then communicates their progress to the industry and the public in a transparent way.
