We’re encouraged to see a growing movement of people who care about who has made their clothing, and choose to support companies who make their apparel authentically, ethically, and sustainably. Here’s some more details about how we make our collection of outdoor supplies.
We work closely with all of our suppliers in the UK and across the world to ensure that all of our apparel is made with the following standards:
• Safe and healthy working conditions
• Payment of living wage
• Legal labour contracts
• Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining
• No discrimination against employees
• No excessive hours of work
• No use of child labour
• No use of forced labour
BAGS & PACKS
Our beautifully adventurous packs are hand crafted in the UK from the finest ingredients – designed for day-to-day wanderings in the wild and the city.
The outer shell is made from highly weather proof Halley Stevensons waxed cotton from Scotland, a hybrid wax which doesn’t crack or transfers onto your clothing or other surfaces.
The British vegetable tan leather detailing is hand-cut and embossed in Derbyshire.
Our custom stainless steel buckles are laser cut and polished in our hometown, Sheffield UK.
BIG BOB BEANIES
Hand made in Romania in collaboration with a social enterprise creating opportunities for families to help themselves out of poverty.
Men and women are trained, and employed to create our Big Bob beanies – providing the steady income and the support needed to move towards independence and to step out of poverty.
You shouldn’t have favourites, but our Big Bob beanies inspired us to start The Level Collective so they are pretty special to us.
