Our Ethical Statement
As a small family run business having strong ethics behind our brand is vitally important to us. Whether it is ensuring all our products are only ever printed using AZO free dyes, to using recycled packaging wherever possible, to paying all our staff in the UK and abroad above the standard living wage.
Our garments are made in India following the highest standards of ethical, environmental, and health & safety practice. We work exclusively with another second-generation family business who manufacture all our products. This company is audited regularly and awarded certification SA 8000. This is a social audit that ensures there is no child labour, no bonded labour and employs all its skilled workers on a permanent basis. In addition, One Hundred Stars carries out its own factory inspections once a year in person for extra piece of mind.
To reduce wastage, we design items (such as our headbands) specifically to make use of off-cut or misprinted material. Any faulty items you return are repaired in house, then sold in our annual sample sales. We donate 100% of proceeds from these sales to local charities which so far have included food banks, mental health services, community centres in deprived areas and homeless centres.
We have now entered our 4th year working in collaboration with The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. A percentage of every sale from this collaborative range goes towards the vital work carried out at Kew into climate change research, preservation of natural habitats and conservation.

We are always looking for new ways to improve, so we can deliver fashion with a conscience that our customers can be proud to wear. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
