Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
At Jigsaw, our philosophy is underpinned by Style & Truth: a set of values that allows us to focus on everything that matters. We create products that are made with integrity and finished to the highest standards, with beautiful materials that will last you a lifetime. This means that we value relationships with the people who help us make our collections and we work closely with them to ensure the same principles are applied throughout our supply chain.
When we begin a relationship with a supplier, we do so based on our sourcing principles: we meet all suppliers at Jigsaw Head Office in London or in the country of the manufacturer; all suppliers must complete a factory profile document; and sign an agreement of compliance to our principles and responsible sourcing Code of Conduct. All new suppliers are approved by our Production Director. We require engagement with one of our approved audit partners and to become a member of SEDEX (a not-for-profit membership organisation dedicated to driving improvements in global supply chains) within one year of initial orders. The production, buying and design team visit suppliers on a regular basis to continue to build a strong working partnership.
The Jigsaw Code of Conduct sets out our policy on supply chain labour and environmental standards, and is based on the Ethical Trading Initiative’s (ETI) base code. Key principles include: employment is freely chosen, child labour shall not be used, living wages are paid, and no harsh or inhumane treatment is allowed.
We have over 80 suppliers based in 14 countries, some of whom we have been working with for more than 18 years. We will continue to nurture these relationships and remain true to our values.
