When they started Girlfriend Collective their first goal was to be as transparent as possible. So many companies tout transparency but only offer flashy headlines instead of substance. They chose every part of their process, from their raw materials to their facilities and partners, with care.
All of their textiles are made from recycled materials in our facility in Taiwan that specializes in eco-friendly and high-quality textiles, then cut-and-sewn in their SA8000 certified factory in Hanoi, Vietnam, that guarantees fair wages, safe and healthy conditions, and zero forced or child labor. Their fabric is dyed with eco-friendly dyes and the wastewater is carefully cleaned and cooled before it is released. (They even donate the dye mud to a local pavement facility where it’s recycled into sidewalks and roads.)
