COLLECTIVE – The ethical lifestyle brand offering high quality clothing basics
COLLECTIVE was founded in 2009 with the core belief that businesses are in a unique position to push international development and are vital to the positive social fabric in our world today.
Focusing on premium ethical basics the brand journey from seed to stitch in an endeavour to create new meaning through collaborative stories and provenance, allowing COLLECTIVE to advance relationships between people and the environment; it is in this way that they encourage individual contribution to positive social change and environmental stability and to never forget each and every hand that their garments have touched.
All of COLLECTIVE’s sourcing and manufacturing has been carefully considered in an effort to create a responsible premium garment and although deeply proud of their supply chain they recognise that this is an ongoing challenge that requires them to continually find new ways of working that achieve ecological, social and cultural balance.
COLLECTIVE hope that their garments will invest the wearer with human agency and celebrate ingenuity, self-awareness and empowerment.

Ethical Focus & Policy
COLLECTIVE believes that business is the greatest vehicle for positive social change. The brand strives to bring greater manufacturing opportunities to developing economies, sourcing both from Tanzania and Turkey. The ultimate goal is to drive foreign direct investment into countries and rapidly grow exports by combining ethical manufacture with brilliant design .
Sustainability is not just about minimising negative impact but also about maximising positive impact. COLLECTIVE collaborates with projects that work to support the long-term financial security of their farms and launch various community projects. Their factories help to ensure the best possible employee conditions and they welcome anyone to see first hand the great work that is being done.
TRANSPARENT SUPPLY CHAINS
For COLLECTIVE, sustainability is about being considerate of the system within which we work. They respect resources, local communities and livelihoods; reduce material use, minimise chemicals and curb water consumption practices. COLLECTIVE implements transparent supply chains and a ‘closed loop’ business model to make sure that they succeed in those aims.
