DOES TED BAKER USE CHILD LABOR?
Child labor is a very emotive issue, and here at Ted Baker we work closely with our factories and suppliers to ensure that not only is there no child labor, but also that no one else within our supply chain is being exploited or discriminated against. We are working with MADE-BY using existing certification and audits from our factories and suppliers to compare them to the MADE-BY benchmark. Where these are not available we ask suppliers to adhere to our Code of Conduct, based on the SAI code, and will be working with individual factories on social improvement programmes to create examples of best practice within our supply chain. You can find out more about our ethical code of conduct here.
DOES TED BAKER USE ORGANIC MATERIALS?
We do use organic materials in some of our products. We also use a range of fabrics from sustainable sources. The best way to find out what fabric a product is made of, is to read its description on this website. For more general information about the different materials we use, you should take a look at our Fabric Guide.
WHAT DOES TED BAKER DO TO HELP THE ENVIRONMENT?
At Ted Baker we know we have a responsibility to do right by the environment. As a proud partner of MADE-BY we are working on the sustainability of our entire collection, up and down our supply chain. We are also working on keeping our carbon footprint as dainty as we can. With an array of other leading London businesses, we've been committed to collectively cutting our carbon emissions by 1.5 million tonnes over the last two and a half years, in keeping with the Mayor of London's Energy Strategy.

WHAT IS THE SUMANGALI SCHEME AND WHAT IS TED BAKER DOING IN RESPONSE TO IT?
DOES TED BAKER USE FUR IN ANY OF THEIR GARMENTS?
DOES TED BAKER USE ANGORA HAIR IN ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS?
We have been assured by our angora suppliers that they source angora fibre from farms where the rabbits are shorn and plucking is prohibited. We are confident that our angora is from as humane a source as possible, but, as we aren’t comfortable with the practice of shearing ourselves, we have decided that we will not produce any angora products in the future. As of high summer 2014 there will be no more angora in our collections. For more information, please see Ted's policy here.
WHAT IS TED BAKER'S POLICY ON ANIMAL WELFARE?
Ted Baker as a company is committed to participating in the fairest of fair trade. We expect all animal-derived products that we sell to have come from animals that are treated in the very best way and in strict accordance with animal welfare legislation. For more information, please see Ted's policy here.
