THE BRAND

Sandqvist

Founded in 2004, Sandqvist is a brand of eco-responsible bags that combines elegance and durability.


The three founders want to develop functional, design-oriented and of course ethical bags that refer to Scandinavian values: sustainability, respect for the environment, high quality design and uncompromising functionality.


Eco-friendly bags are made from recycled materials and organic cotton. Sandqvist is transparent about its suppliers; all of them respect fair working conditions and the environment. The brand is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation.

CERTIFICATIONS

Fairwear Foundation

This label is the fruit of a common will of all the actors of the textile world, to see the work in the field being done in the best possible conditions.


Created in 1999, the foundation is interested in textile work throughout the manufacturing chain. Starting with the harvesting of the fibres up to the finished product. The label issued by the foundation does not apply to the products, but rather to the companies that manufacture them.


It should be stressed that the Fair Wear Foundation has nothing to do with respect for the environment but rather with respect for working conditions.

Fairwear Foundation - Certifications - Klow

Fairtrade

It is a label created in 1988, whose aim is to ensure fair trade for economically emerging countries.


Known as "Max Havelaar" when it was created, the label is internationally recognised and applies to various food, cosmetic and textile products. A product that is certified "Fairtrade" by FLO International, which is the guarantor of the label, is a product that financially supports farming and labour communities through a minimum premium.


The label also takes into account a number of ecological criteria. The Fairtrade label ensures that employees are paid with dignity, that there is no child labour, no discrimination and that social standards are respected.
