Happy jeans makers, better jeans

Doing less harm is no longer enough. That’s why we created a circular way of producing jeans. It started in 2013 when Bert van Son founded the company. His 30 years’ experience in the fashion industry made him realize how dirty and unfair the industry is most of the time. He witnessed that life for factory workers is extremely demanding, and that it’s endless demands for materials are ruining our planet. He wanted to do things differently.

A short supply chain allows full transparency and control over our products. And makes regular visits easy.

A short supply chain

We aim to create products that are good for the planet and every person that encounters them. That’s why we keep our supply chain short and build long-lasting relations with our suppliers. We’ve put a Code of Conduct in place which you can find here. All of our main supply chain partners have signed our Code of Conduct. This way we can directly create a safer and healthier working environment for our colleagues in and outside the factories. We’ve set three references that help us assess the situation at the factories we work with.

Fair wages

We want to provide fair and equal pay so we can enrich the livelihood of everyone working across our supply chain. Therefore, we aim to pay every worker in our supply chain above minimum wage.

In 2016, we were audited by the Fair Wear Foundation as we were a part of their Young Designer Program. There were definitely points for improvement, which have been solved through a Corrective Action Plan. In the fall of 2020 we will complete our second audit with the Social and Labor Convergence Program (SLCP). Through this new audit, we will find out more about the wage situation at Yousstex International and compare the findings to our last audit and set action points.

Working environment

Anybody working full-time knows how much our surroundings influence our mental and physical health. Through conscious product and production choices we aim to empower our factory colleagues through a safe and healthy working environment where their abilities can thrive.

Equality

We care for solidarity, inclusiveness and democracy, regardless of race, gender, age, shape or ability. The garment industry is dominated by female workers, 80% of this industry is made up of women between the ages of 18 and 35. MUD Jeans believes that this industry could have a great potential as an emancipatory force for women all around the world.

That is why equality is high on our agenda. 90% of the workers at Yousstex International are women. For these women, personal development is closely linked to conditions at work and we want to empower them through an equal working environment.
