For a small Australian apparel, footwear and sports goods business, we’ve received a lot of accolades over the last decade. That’s because Etiko has been setting the gold standard for creating positive social and environmental impact through our business activities and products.
As you can see below, our commitment to the use of fair trade, organic and sustainable materials, and fair trade principles in the manufacturing of its products, has seen the business win the 2016 Human Rights Award (Business Category) and top the rankings for ethical production in the last 3 Australian Fashion Reports, amongst other accolades.
More importantly, a decade of sales of Etiko’s products have supported the human and labour rights of cotton growers and rubber tappers, workers in apparel, sports ball and shoe production, and their families and communities in India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
