SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAIN
Colefax and Fowler provide only the finest fabrics and wallcoverings and are therefore incredibly discerning about who we work with. We strive to source our products and services from the most responsible businesses that put the planet and their people on a par with their exceptional craftsmanship and products. Working with global supply chains can make a drive toward sustainability difficult, which is why we work with suppliers who are taking extra steps to limit their impact on the planet.
Many of our suppliers have Oeko-tex status, which states that the products have been manufactured in environmentally friendly facilities under safe and socially responsible working conditions. All of our suppliers are making every effort to source their energy from renewable methods, and reducing water consumption during manufacturing.
We encourage our suppliers to make every effort to minimise their environmental footprint.
