People & Ethics
Transparent Supply Chain – VRTP actively seeks out the very best factories for each product we develop.. We interview between 5 and15 factories before selecting the perfect one to make our products.
Our expectation is clear from the outset with our ‘Code of Conduct’ questionnaire through which we aim to gauge the supplier’s level of social & ethical compliance to ensure fair wages, work safety and adult only employment.
Only after this process do we place orders & endeavour to establish long-term relationships with vendors of the same integrity & business ethic, ensuring continuous improvement where on-going social & environmental changes are taken into consideration.
Testing for harmful substances - All our products follow strict testing guidelines from the world's best-known label for textiles tested for harmful substances.
OEKO-TEX® testing considers numerous regulated and non-regulated substances, which may be harmful to human health such as; nickel, formaldehyde & cadmium.
The prints and coatings applied to the outer material are also tested for harmful substances according to the criteria applicable to them.

Better Cotton Initiative - By becoming part of the ‘Better Cotton Initiative’ (which requires a licensed supply chain) we can ensure our resources are responsible & sustainable.
Through joining the BCI community we will be contributing to better working conditions & communities for farmers while encouraging the worldwide shift to more sustainable cotton production.

Packaging, Sustainability & The planet – As a business we have worked very hard towards reducing packaging options on all our products. All single use poly bags have been eliminated from apparel, we have introduced re-cycled polyester products made from 100% recycled plastic drinking bottles & changed over any presentation packaging such as tags & header cards to be sourced from sustainable forestry such as FSC.
Our apparel is also made from fabric which requires a ‘COLD WASH’ option. Decreasing our carbon footprint by reducing the energy a washing machine needs by 90%.
