One Leaf Earned
  • Since tracing the origin of their deadstock materials is difficult, Paesim is working to improve their traceability by performing extensive research about the materials.  

   *Deadstock materials are fabrics that would either end up sitting, unused in factories or in landfills.

Room for Improvement:

  • Paesim can improve upon their transparency standards by disclosing more information about working conditions within their factories.

  • Another way Paesim can improve upon their transparency standards is by including their Code of Conduct on their website.

Fair Labor

Two Leaves Earned
  • Paesim implements welfare programs for its employees such as healthcare, retirement benefits, and access to career advancement.

  • Paesim also works with its factories to ensure factory workers are provided a fair and living wage. 

  • Each member of the team is provided with a wage of at least 1.30x above minimum wage set in Illinois. 

Room for Improvement:

  • To improve their fair labor values, Paesim could invest in well-being improvements at the community level such as investing in community gardens or similar projects.

Sustainably Made

Two Leaves Earned
  • Paesim utilizes deadstock fabrics. This means that they acquire and use fabrics that would have otherwise sat in warehouses, been recycled, or thrown away.

  • Paesim ensures that every aspect of their packaging is produced from recycled material and is either recyclable or compostable.

Room for Improvement:

  • Paesim could improve upon their sustainability standards by pursuing GOTS standards to help reduce and/or eliminate the use of hazardous chemicals within production.
