Sustainability & Ethical Sourcing
The origins of our products and cotton, in particular, are very important to chucklr. The cotton is organic and ethically sourced as well as being environmentally friendly. We also make a conscious effort to be as eco friendly as possible, minimising our carbon footprint, and do not use any child labour throughout the process.
In addition, we can use a selection of water-based inks to produce designs with the same level of impact as traditional plastic-based solutions.
- For Printing, we only use designated Soil Association approved inks.
- For Embroidery, we only use Soil Association approved threads and backing products.
The following organisations have accredited products and processes within our range. Please see each product for the relevant accreditation. Meanwhile, here is an overview of the organisations.
Global Organic Textile Standard - GOTS Certification -
GOTS is an organisation consisting of four member organisations, the OTA (USA), IVN (Germany), Soil association (UK) and JOCA (Japan). Their mission is that organic textiles will become a significant part of everyday life, enhancing people’s lives and the environment. This standard stipulates requirements throughout the supply chain for both ecology and labour conditions in textile and apparel manufacturing using organically produced raw materials. Organic production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic, persistent pesticides and fertilisers. In addition, organic production relies on adequate animal husbandry and excludes genetic modification.
We are proud to say that our cotton products follow the Soil Association guidelines for organic clothing and products using decorated organic processes.
