Brand Sustainability Report
Why We Chose to Partner with Them
Miaou’s materials mostly meet our sustainability requirements, being wither locally sourced, biodegradeable, or deadstock fabric. While we would rather see their cotton be GOTS certified, BCI cotton is a good step. Additionally, all non-local materials are shipped from the source to the manufacturer with an eye towards reducing carbon emissions.
While manufacturing in China is often a red flag for potential labor rights issues, Miaou has a clear code of conduct that they require their manufacturers to follow with regard to wages, safety and ethics and they perform regular and random audits of their supply partners to ensure compliance. While we would be more comfortable with 3rd party verification and certification from someone like B Labs, Miaou is clearly a company for whom sustainability is a priority, and we are happy to partner with them as an example of an ethical fashion brand.
