As part of our fight against forced labor and slavery (or human trafficking), an unannounced check will be carried out in each of our offices,factories,or Designers Boutiques establishments(whether in the United States or internationally). This audit covers not only compliance with applicable laws but also a series of quantitative and qualitative indicators such as: security and protection against all forms of threat (including terrorism), harassment and discrimination, etc.
Our offices and workshops are in the United States and actively participate in our goal of reducing our environmental footprint in collaboration with all our suppliers. We are working with 3 benchmarks :
