Their garments are made in India following the highest standards of ethical, environmental, and health & safety practice. They work exclusively with another second-generation family business who manufacture all their 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, they design items specifically to make use of off-cut material. Any faulty items are repaired in house, then sold in their yearly sample sale, where all proceeds go to local charities.
They have now entered their fourth 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.
They are always looking for new ways to improve, so they can deliver fashion with a conscious.
Here at The Blue Magpie, we are proud to have been a stockist of One Hundred Stars for many years and intend to continue supporting them on their journey to fulfil their design goals and principles.
