Become a member brand

We help conscious clothing brands create lasting change. We support brands that are determined to find a fairer way to make their clothes. We meet brands where they are – so that any brand can start its journey with us and take continued, practical steps to improve working conditions for people in garment factories. You can find our basic requirements for becoming a member on this page, but please note that we are currently prioritising larger brands for new membership. 

Fair Wear brands have the opportunity to collaborate with other leaders in the industry and learn from their journeys and good practices. The third-party credibility that Fair Wear membership offers gives legitimacy to a brand and verifies that the actions they are taking are all taken with a view to improving the lives of garment workers. Fair Wear membership is not a certification, our brands are intrinsically motivated to go the extra mile and work towards the high bar Fair Wear sets for its members.

Find out more about the benefits and opportunities that being a Fair Wear member brings, and hear directly from one of our member brands about what being a Fair Wear member means to them.

In the upcoming period, Fair Wear is seeking to expand its member base by adding larger influential brands. Our preference is for brands that are visible and outspoken leaders in sustainability in the garment industry, which can impact and change this industry and impact many garment workers’ lives. We plan to engage more with top brand management and increase collective member learning opportunities. 

Due to the high number of brands that are currently applying for Fair Wear membership and the limited number of spaces we have available to onboard brands, we, unfortunately, can no longer accept all membership requests. We will review your application during the application process and discuss with you whether your brand could join Fair Wear in 2022 or 2023.
