Brand Performance Check 2019

Tailor and Stitch has met most of FWF’s performance requirements. Tailor and Stitch has monitored 96% of its purchasing volume, and meets the threshold for third-year members. The monitoring threshold consists of FWF audits, external audits and fulfilling monitoring requirements for its low-risk production location. The monitoring percentage, combined with a benchmark score of 54, means that FWF has awarded Tailor and Stitch the category ‘Good’.

In 2018, Tailor and Stitch invested in a planning management software. This system was integrated with their supplier’s planning system in order to enter projected lead times, track progress and project potential delays of orders and ultimately better manage excessive overtime. Furthermore, Tailor and Stitch completed their company code of conduct which integrates their company ethos as well as assessment of risks to the FWF labour standards. Tailor and Stitch made sure that each supplier signed their company code along side the FWF code of labour practice and supplier questionnaire as part of a binding agreement.

Tailor and Stitch has a second office in India, which means that production locations are regularly visited and there is frequent in person communication with factory management at their main suppliers. Whilst the majority of Tailor and Stitch’s production is in India, FWF recommends that the company to also visit production locations such as China despite their small production quantities at this location. Furthermore, Tailor and Stitch should prioritise actively raising awareness about the FWF Code of Labour Practices and FWF complaint hotline. This can be done either using FWF’s Workplace Education Programme (WEP) basic module, or another training related to the FWF CoLP and complaint hotline through service providers or brand staff.

In the next financial year, FWF recommends Tailor and Stitch to further analyse the wage levels in its factories and set target wages after analysis and discussion with factory management and local stakeholders. Tailor and Stitch can start this analysis at their newly acquired factory. Having ownership of this facility will allow Tailor and Stitch to further explore potential living wage pilots projects starting with this supplier.
