Our success is based on our relationships with our suppliers, customers and peers in a dynamic global landscape with an ever evolving supply chain. The Outerknown Code of Conduct (“Code”) outlines the high expectations we have of ourselves and our partners.

Every Outerknown supplier must meet or exceed these guidelines as laid out in our Code and permit regular and independent monitoring.

Our success is based on our relationships with our suppliers, customers and peers in a dynamic global landscape with an ever evolving supply chain. The Outerknown Code of Conduct (“Code”) outlines the high expectations we have of ourselves and our partners.

Every Outerknown supplier must meet or exceed these guidelines as laid out in our Code and permit regular and independent monitoring.

Outerknown aspires to engage with civil society, governments, the private sector, and peers to affect systemic change of labor and environmental challenges in countries where we live and work.

Our goal is to fairly and consistently evaluate performance in our supply chain and to actively support continuous improvement. If we determine a supplier is out of compliance with any of these guidelines, we require immediate collaborative corrective action.

While we recognize there are different legal and cultural environments in which our suppliers operate, we are committed to applying our Code across all aspects of our operations, including raw material suppliers and subcontractors. Our Code and the Supplemental Guidelines were developed to provide a framework to evaluate supplier performance and determine who we partner with.

Alpaca fiber is key in our supply chain, and has been integral to indigenous Peruvian culture for centuries.

Outerknown aspires to engage with civil society, governments, the private sector, and peers to affect systemic change of labor and environmental challenges in countries where we live and work. We intend to do business with suppliers that are already committed to these principles and are themselves in relentless pursuit of continuous improvement. We believe that partnerships based on transparency and collaboration will promote responsible and sustainable practices.
