It is important to us that are products are ethically produced to the highest possible standards. In order to ensure this we visited the factories in Allepey and have seen the products being manufactured ourselves.
We have dealt with our suppliers in India for 20 years. The main factory is a modern building and working conditions are very good by local standards. While the processes are very labour intensive, the export of coir products is extremely important to the region of Allepey. No child labour is used in any part of the process.
In order to encourage the coir production the EU have given coir products exemption from Import duty under the General System of Preference rules.
