Description : Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) is an independent, non-profit organisation that works with companies and factories to improve labour conditions for garment workers. FWF’s 80 member companies represent over 120 brands, and are based in seven European countries; member products are sold in over 20,000 retail outlets in more than 80 countries around the world. FWF is active in 15 production countries in Asia, Europe and Africa. Companies that produce and distribute products of which the main manufacturing process is sewing can join FWF and, depending on the direct influence they have with garment factories, become an FWF affiliate or FWF ambassador. Both affiliates and ambassadors of FWF work towards improving the labour conditions in factories and workshops where the ‘cut-make-trim’ stage takes place, all over the world. The basis of the collaboration between FWF and a member is the Code of Labour Practices. Eight labour standards form the core of the Code of Labour Practices. Members of FWF must comply with this Code of Labour Practices.
