Responsible textile production is not about geography


Have a clear and constant focus on CSR and quality. We endeavour to always be one step ahead of our customers’ requirements and expectations – and never deviate from our simple principle of doing things properly.


Responsible textile production is not about geography. We began production in countries like Bangladesh in the 80’s, and have continually developed our collaboration with our partners there. The close dialogue and mutual loyalty has made it possible to implement very high requirements in relation to quality, the environment and working conditions.

From the beginning ID® has only had production at factories we have personally visited. In 2006 we went one step further and established an office in Dhaka, Bangladesh, so we could be present at our producers’ on a weekly basis. This gives us a detailed knowledge of the factories’ working conditions and quality level, and strengthens relationships with our partners.



Our other suppliers work in line with the same directions as our partners in Bangladesh. They have also received the quality manual and signed the requirements in the seven sections. This entails sending us inspection reports, conducting BSCI audits and being visited by Bureau Veritas, among other initiatives.

The manual targets people who have to work within this framework. We wanted to give our business partners a practical tool. One that set reasonable requirements for their efforts, and was realistic to implement. Ultimately it is only the intentions which are translated into action that count!



ID® takes its responsibility as a clothing manufacturer seriously. We have therefore formulated a ‘Code of Conduct’ that states exactly what we require of our suppliers and partners. You can have a clear conscience when you do business with us – and when dealing with your customers you can confidently recommend our products as ethically responsible. Based on the UN Global Compact.
