These days you can watch a swell come to life with a few taps of your thumb. But finding out how your gear is made can be next to impossible. To support workers and promote transparency in the supply chain, a part of our line is now made in Fair Trade Certified™ facilities.

It means that for every piece we make, we pay a premium that workers can use to elevate their standard of living. The certification also requires factories to comply with a strict set of standards for safe working conditions and environmental responsibility. Fair Trade costs us a bit more—but we believe it’s worth every cent.
