Sourcing - know the hands your products pass through

Many apparel businesses utilise multiple factories that are owned by different companies to manufacture their products based purely on cost, quality or speed of manufacture. 

As Lorna Jane expanded, we reasoned that having one principal source of production would enable us to make products our way in terms of working conditions, quality and brand understanding. We have built a long-term partnership with one dedicated and ethical Australian-owned and managed manufacturing group that solely produces Lorna Jane products. 

It matters to us that our manufacturing source reflects who we are as a brand. We have developed a Code of Conduct for our suppliers and by working with us, the supplier commits to working proactively to meet these requirements within its operations and its supply chain.

Lorna Jane’s manufacturing partner, Ningbo Longson Garments is a WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) certified business. Our current WRAP certification was issued in November 2018 (audit date 14th September 2018).

Ningbo Longson is in the Yinzhou District, Zhejiang Province, China. Our factory has 1075 Workers, 67% of which are Female.

We work closely with the factory to ensure all team members are compensated above the living wage and closely monitor working hours.

WRAP is an independent, non-profit, objective team of global compliance experts dedicated to promoting safe, lawful, humane and ethical manufacturing around the world. WRAP conduct the largest independent factory accreditation program in the world that is based on the following twelve principles and the conventions of the International Labour Organisation:

The environment - know the footprints your brand makes/ Energy conservation

We installed a solar farm at our global head office 24 months ago, which provides all the power required.

Our plan is to follow that very soon with water harvesting.

Our goal is to introduce green energy choices to all our facilities that we are legally permitted to do so in.
