Where are my clothes coming from?

Nachhaltigkeit: Woher kommt meine Kleidung?

Where are my clothes coming from?

A sustainable lifestyle is gaining more and more importance in our social life. On the one hand, sustainable fashion which is produced using natural materials in a resource-saving manner, but on the other hand: the production conditions are also becoming important. The most common question is: Where do my clothes come from? Nowadays a large part of our clothing is still produced at low cost countries like Bangladesh, India or China. The conditions in the local factories are not on a decent level: a low wage which is not enough to live on, inhuman working conditions and a dramatic environmental pollution during the production. These conditions are often the order of the day.

So how can you be sure that you are buying a Fairtrade product? To wear fashion with a good feeling, there are various quality seals and certificates that guarantee a transparent supply chain and require high social standards. You can find all most important seals at one glance here:

Fur Free Retailer - renouncing real fur

GERRY WEBER does not use real fur and has participated in the international "Fur Free Retailer" programme since 2015. We only use woven furs and thus adhere to the self-obligation promised to animal protection associations.

We also renounce from using angora wool, as the appropriate keeping of rabbits in the fur production cannot be guaranteed. We also do not use feathers and down from animals, and from the rests of the production of foie gras. We oblige our suppliers to comply with all national and international laws and regulations on appropriate animal husbandry. From 2020 on, the use of mohair will also be stopped. We use leather and skins exclusively from farm animals, for example from animals that have not been bred specifically for our leather use.

GERRY WEBER also prohibits any mulesing on sheep. This is a painful surgical procedure without anaesthesia, in which the skin around the tail of the animal is removed to protect the animals from being infected by parasites.



Our Code of Conduct

We have set ourselves strict ecological standards. All our suppliers must sign an agreement to comply with social and ecological standards as a basis for our business relationship. Compliance with the standards is regularly monitored by the suppliers. We have also developed a code of conduct that declares responsible action to be an integral part of our daily work.
