ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE - OUR COMMITMENT TO FAIR WOOL
Since 1988, ORTOVOX clothing has been all about wool. The protectionof people and animals is the central focus of all of ORTOVOX’sactivities. That’s why, after more than two years of talks with woolfarmers, suppliers and producers, ORTOVOX initiated its own woolstandard: the ORTOVOX WOOL PROMISE (OWP). Based upon theResponsible Wool Standard (RWS), the OWP takes an even moreextensive approach: The OWP standard focuses upon animalwelfare, farm and land management, and slaughter and transport.More than 60 indicators are checked regularly on the farms by acertified, independent auditor. Furthermore, ORTOVOX is working ona certified traceability system that should ensure that only woolfrom selected farms ends up in ORTOVOX products.
