Becket prides itself on working with established and reputable partners that exclusively utilise high-quality durable materials and premium craftsmanship to withstand everyday use and guarantee extended product lifetime in comparison to competitors on the market. Through sampling, testing and focus group feedback we are able to guarantee our bags have been designed to last without compromise.
Becket and its partners envision a future where waste is a primary resource. Our manufacturer has plans to develop a digitised / automated system tracking the entire supply chain, providing real time data on material utilisation, informing where improvements are needed, while simultaneously helping increase material reutilisation.
In practice, Becket bag production will reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling, and reuse, using safe, recycled or renewable inputs while supporting the plant-based movement. Bags are made using next-gen materials and leather alternatives, focusing on zero-waste & durable design while eliminating substances of concern. Our manufacturer also facilitates upcycling and take-back programs to reduce waste.
At Becket we prioritise sustainability, which is why we exclusively utilise non-leather alternatives for our bags. By sourcing next-gen materials and chemical-free dyes, our manufacturer helps replicate the look, feel, and performance of leather without the environmentally harmful practices.
Becket has carefully selected partners that emulate our core values. Becket and its partners are committed to reducing our impact on the planet and are continually seeking ways to create positive and impactful changes.
We take pride in our partnership with a progressive factory that upholds high social responsibility and ethical standards. This includes a commitment to equal opportunities, ensuring the health and safety of employees, and operating without the use of animal-based products.
The values are underpinned by transparency, auditing and reporting. Comprehensive impact reports are shared annually as well as a BSCI audit demonstrating the factories commitment to its workers, the environment and contributing to a more sustainable future for the fashion industry.
We are working with a carbon-neutral distribution network to fulfil orders worldwide whilst minimising our impact on the planet.
Factory employees – The main asset of our manufacturer is its employees. The factory currently employ 42 people. The workforce is composed of 50% female, and 30% are migrant workers. They have 1 employee with a disability working in the factory, and they have a recruitment procedure designed to eliminate discrimination. Gender equality is applied in each aspect of the company, including salary distribution, and guarantee that migrant workers have actively decided to live locally to work.
Through the BSCI audit, it has been calculated that factory employees receive salaries that are 10% higher than the industry standard and 40% higher than local law minimum wage requirements. The goal is to ensure that employees are able to live a fulfilling life with the means provided, and have enough time to spend with their families.
