Who makes our clothes?
Our factories across the world
The whole world goes into the making of our unashamedly British brand. Everything’s designed at Boden House in London, but we currently use 152 factories across 15 countries – all carefully chosen for their skills, experience and attention to detail – to bring our ideas to life. (See the full list here. We’re committed to updating it every six months.) Our materials have come from suppliers near and far: from the tweed mills of Yorkshire to the cobblers of Portugal, the silk spinners of China to the embroiderers of India. We have always looked to suppliers whose values are compatible with our own, and have some very long-term relationships with suppliers who have consistently delivered high-quality products, created in a healthy working environment.
Boden does not work with any suppliers or factories in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region and we do not [knowingly] source any materials from the region either. We work with our trusted manufacturing partners in China who are ethically audited on an annual basis using the SMETA audit methodology.
We are aware of the on-going situation and are in communication with our peers and ethical partners like the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) to ensure supply chains in China are free of any forced labour.
