We have decided to comply with animal welfare measures and prohibit the use of animal hair, down and feathers from live or darning pluck, real fur, angora, mohair, cashmere, leather and skins of endangered animals as well as leather from Indian cows and mussels in our production. (Social Compliance Manual and Restrictions on Material).
The procurement of wool is subject to special requirements which are obligatory for all our suppliers. For example, the wool used must be sourced from farms that have committed to the Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare. This standard includes the following points:
Furthermore, our wool must not come from animals that have been treated with the so-called Mulesing process. Therefore, we prefer to use wool from suppliers who are certified according to the "Responsible Wool Standard (RWS)".
Since 2015, the TOM TAILOR Group has also been offering exclusively fur-free collections and is therefore a member of the Fur Free Retailer Program.
