Alice Made This maintains a longstanding commitment to responsible and sustainable business practices, including respect for human rights. We follow the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), supply chain principles and associated safeguards prescribed by the RJC, including auditing of supply chains and the furthering of ethical and environmentally sustainable operations.
We welcome the transparency that the Modern Slavery Act requires, and we are committed to combating slavery, forced labour, human trafficking and other unlawful and/or unethical practices throughout our business and our supply chains.
Structure and Business.
Since its debut in 2012, Alice Made This has developed into an internationally renowned luxury accessories and jewellery brand, operating from office space in London, and selling on-line and through third party retailers. The Company has since won Brand of the future at the UK Fashion and Textile Awards, and its products are now stocked by global luxury retailers including, Selfridges, Liberty, Mr Porter and Matches.
One of our core values is respect for all those with whom we work. We are proud to make our product locally, exploring craft and industry that is high quality and local. We are committed to the ethical sourcing of our materials and work closely with suppliers to ensure that they adhere to our code of conduct.
Our supply chain encompasses the provision of goods and services, both within and outside the U.K. We engage with approximately 7 suppliers of base and precious metals (“Product Suppliers”). Such Product Suppliers currently operate factories in the UK with some of our raw materials coming from Spain and Germany.
Alice Made This is committed to ensuring there is no slavery, forced labour or human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, or indeed any other part of our business.
We expect our employees to uphold our core values of excellence, integrity and social responsibility. In addition, we actively encourage employees to raise any behaviours or activities they believe to be unlawful or unethical in any part of our business or operations.
We also expect all our suppliers to adhere to the highest legal and ethical standards, and to operate free from discrimination, slavery, forced labour and human trafficking. Our suppliers undergo a workplace conditions assessment audit. This is social compliance audit which tracks and evaluates key areas such as labour, wages, health and safety, management systems and environment conditions. In addition, we believe firmly in the value of due diligence, and the importance of getting to know our suppliers well in order to build long-term relationships based on trust and integrity. Quality Assurance is paramount and we schedule regular visits, to our all of our suppliers.
