Fair Labor & Bluesign

Fair Labor

Outerknown is the first company in history to join Fair Labor before selling a single product. We’re committed to uphold the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct, Principles of Fair Labor, and Responsible Sourcing throughout our entire supply chain.

As global citizens it’s essential to us that the people who make our clothes are treated fairly. Our FLA partnership assists us in making sure our workers are paid a fair wage, given appropriate time off, and provided with clean working conditions free from discrimination.


For us at Outerknown, we’re constantly trying to lower our impact at every level of our supply chain. Raw material production is one of the most environmentally intensive operations in apparel. This is where you find the most chemicals, a huge amount of water use and subsequent waste runoff. Bluesign has created the best industry standards for monitoring and auditing chemical, energy and water use. We’ve chosen them as our partner to help us monitor these impacts throughout our supply chain and manufacturing process.

With Bluesign’s help, we ensure that no harmful chemicals enter our manufacturing process. We do everything we can to partner with Bluesign accredited mills, and hope that this standard becomes more prevalent across the industry.
