Nine new companies!

In the past four months, nine companies joined Fair Wear Foundation, all of them as affiliates – companies with substantial influence on labour conditions on the factory floor.

In addition to the two jeans brands Nudie Jeans and J.C. Rags, there are two affiliates that produce promotional wear: the Belgian Cotton Group (joined November 2009) and the UK based Alteks.co.uk (joined the first of January 2010).

During the opening of FWF’s new office on 6 November 2009, the Dutch workwear firm Rivema, which produces Roughnecks with its partner, a production facility in China, signed the Code of Labour Practices. On the same date, Manderley, a Dutch private label company with its own production facility in Slowakia, also joined FWF.

On the first of March 2010 FWF was joined by Schijvens (see photo!), which designs and produces corporate wear in its own facility in The Netherlands as well as abroad.
During the annual FWF members’ day, finally, two more companies signed on: Araco, a firm for promotional and work wear, and Mayerline fashion.
