Who made my clothes?
All garments are designed in Australia by Christina Phillips and are produced in a factory with 206 staff members in Guangzhou, China. The factory voluntarily takes part in the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI), which is an international initiative for companies committed to improving working conditions in factories and farms worldwide. BSCI unites over 1,000 companies around one common Code of Conduct with the aim to build an ethical supply chain with a step-by-step, development-oriented system. The BSCI Code of Conduct is built on the most important international conventions protecting workers’ rights, notably the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Conventions and recommendations.
BSCI supports companies by providing them with practical management instruments to implement the Code of Conduct and monitor improvements of working conditions in supply chains.
Regular audits are undertaken to ensure that the company are working to an appropriate standard against the 11 principles that create the Code of Conduct.
The principles include areas such as: workers protection, fair remuneration, decent working hours, no child labour, protection of the environment and ethical business behaviour.

CLAUDIA is committed to reducing as much waste as possible and strives to lower the impact on the natural environment. Rather than sending out paper invoices with your orders you will find an electronic copy attached to the confirmation email you receive once placing an order. All garments are packaged in a 100% biodegradable calico bag which can be reused in a variety of ways. Swing tags are made from recyclable cardboard that are attached with reusable metal pins and biodegradable bamboo cord. Your parcels are then shipped in 100% recycled content poly mailers that also have a dual adhesive strip allowing you to reuse them. If you don't need to reuse the satchel, in Australia they can be recycled in the specially marked bins at selected Coles & Woolworths supermarkets.
