Filippa K is a Scandinavian brand that focuses on classic closet essentials from tank tops and sweatpants to hiking boots and coats. They create minimalist styles and approach fashion with a longevity perspective.
Filippa K publishes a Fair Wear Foundation report each year detailing conditions within factories, information about manufacturing facilities, and supplier subcontracting policies.
They also partner with TrusTrace to use blockchain technology to support traceability.
Filippa K requires all partners to adhere to a Code of Conduct based on the Fair Wear Foundation’s Code of Labor Practices that promotes human and labor rights.
Filippa K’s Fair Wear Foundation reports ensure that all first-tier facilities are regularly assessed for compliance with their Code of Conduct.
The report also summarizes the most significant human and labor rights risks within their supply chain.
Filippa K uses QuizRR, a tool that uses gamification to increase worker knowledge of their rights.
Room for Improvement:
Filippa K can improve Fair Labor by ensuring all workers involved in their supply chain make a living wage.
Filippa K works to reduce their carbon emissions each year by measuring the carbon emissions of their Swedish stores and the fuel consumed by their global transports.
Filippa K invests in circularity by sending their cutting waste to Re.Verso, a company who makes new clothes out of other companies’ waste.
Another way they invest in circularity is by collecting post-consumer Filippa K products and reselling them for cheaper at a secondhand store.
