Iq texpro takes social compliance very serious. Especially in Bengali garment factories this is a serious issue, after the recent disasters in, for example, Rana Plaza and Tazreen Fashion Factory. The Bengali partners, which are active in iq texpro, take this very serious. The factories are audited by the Accord, BSCI, Fair Wear Foundation, H&M and Walmart. Too much? No, good labour conditions are important!
If necessary, improvements are done within a set time-frame. Corrective action plans are followed-up precisely and where-ever we can do a bit more, we will not hesitate. One of our Bengali factories has a primary school on its own premises. Children of the workers and children from the surrounding area can get education there from licensed teachers, free of charge.
Besides good labour conditions, also the environment is important. After all, our children, grand children and next generations need a proper place to live. We offer our customers ecological friendly fabrics, like organic cotton, recycled fleece and bamboo fleece.
Our Indian factory is specialized in production of Fairtrade and organic cotton textiles. Therefor it is audited by FLO-Cert and GOTS. The factory complies to the high standards of both institutes and has the right to supply textiles with the trademarks of Fairtrade and GOTS. In addition to these audits, the factory is also audited by Fair Wear Foundation.
The factories of our Chinese manufacturers for premiums & gifts are usually audited by BSCI, Disney, or Bureau Veritas.
