People50 years of considered craft

Our Supply Chain

We have worked extensively with our suppliers and operate with them as true business partners. Over 80% of our total spend is with suppliers that we have worked with for over 10 years, some we have worked with since we started nearly 50 years ago in 1973. Our in-house design team works with our suppliers to create unique, individual designs. We ask every single one of our suppliers to commit to the Monsoon Accessorize Code of Conduct, which includes:

  • Fair living wages
  • No harsh or inhumane treatment
  • No forced labour
  • No child labour
  • No discrimination

This aims to protect workers by setting out minimum requirements on working conditions, pay and employment rights, throughout the supply chain.

Our Artisan Partners

We have worked with artisans for 50 years.

Our Code of Conduct also extends to the artisans and other skilled workers who help create some of our most special products, often in small local workshops or their own homes. Those working from home undergo additional monitoring, due to the specific vulnerability of their working conditions. We also require all our suppliers to ensure these craftspeople receive fair rates for their work, which is then closely supported by our Ethical Trade team.
Where we are going

Since 1973, Monsoon has worked with craftspeople and homeworkers to create the unique hand-crafted Monsoon look and feel. Our early collections were born from clothes made in Indian villages using hand embroidery, block prints and local crafts. While we may have grown into a global company, we remain committed to our hand-crafted roots and supporting these rural communities as well as their skills, contributing to sustaining traditional crafts.

Ethical Trading Initiative

As a founding member of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), Monsoon has been at the forefront of driving sustainable improvements in working conditions and livelihoods.
