When East End Press made the decision to partner with printers, crafts people and manufacturers overseas their first concern was creating a working relationship with people that was ethical and fair, where everyone in the supply chain was respected and paid a fair wage. The connotations of importing from Asian countries are generally not good, due to the risk of exploiting people not protected by European minimum wages and safe labour laws. East End Press is committed to respecting everyone involved in the production of it’s products and does not work with companies or manufacturers unless it is proven that workers rights are respected (following national labour laws and social compliances); no children are ever involved in the production process and workers are paid at least the national minimum wage for their role. All factories East End Press works with are independently audited and belong to SEDEX, an international organisation that is dedicated to driving improvements in ethical and responsible business practices in global supply chains.
They personally visit every printing plant , manufacturer and factory that they work with.
They know that buying ethically is important to their customers as well as to them, so please buy in confidence, safe in the knowledge that traditional crafts, and talented crafts people, are being supported by your purchase and that everyone in the production of their product is working in a safe, comfortable environment and is being paid fairly for their part in the process.
