Radical Tea Towel Accessories
We are a small family business, conceived and based in the UK, but with inventory also in the US. We design and promote all our products ourselves and source them almost entirely from rural areas of England where jobs are in short supply. Though we use several suppliers for our products, these all operate under one roof i.e. they do not outsource the core manufacture of our products, thereby cutting down on the environmental damage caused by unnecessary shipping. To maintain our own high ethical and environmental standards we ask our suppliers questions to ensure that they too conform to sound principles, whether this is in the form of the employment of disabled people, solar panelling on the roof or recycling of any waste fabrics, cardboard, chemicals etc or if that is not possible, responsible disposal according to current legislation.
We have chosen natural, unbleached finishes for our products wherever possible and eco friendly water based inks are used with virtually no impact on the environment. The bulk of our fabrics are woven in Turkey or the US and finished in the UK. We are assured that no child labour is used in the factories where the fabrics are made and employment standards are good.
Our US fulfilment partners are based in Pennsylvania state. We've visited them, met a bunch of their staff and checked out their cool warehouse! Like us, they are a family-owned business with fair employment practices, and provide decent wages and healthcare benefits for all their employees in the US.
