Better for the world we live in


We do our utmost to protect the planet. We devote just as much care to the well-being of our planet as to that of our own organisation. This is also the reason that we remain in charge of the entire production process. From the people whose hands tan our leather to the very waste flows from our factory. We strive to achieve 100% sustainability, while utilising primarily natural products that are good for both people and the environment. We minimise our use of harmful packaging materials, as well as vouching for a healthy working environment.

The employees who make our bags earn a fair wage, have health insurance and contribute to a pension scheme. Women and minorities are afforded equal employment opportunities. Training is offered proactively, while it goes without saying that child labour is prohibited.

We endeavour to improve both our own social performance and that of our supply chain

H.J. de Rooy is a member of Amfori, the leading global business association for open and sustainable trade. We improve the social performance of our supply chain in collaboration with Amfori BSCI. Furthermore, we do business solely with suppliers who operate ‘transparently’ and have a clear vision of sustainability and corporate social responsibility.

Our suppliers are OEKO-TEX® certified and REACH compliant, which implies that all our products are completely free of harmful chemicals and safe to use. We have this confirmed annually by Intertek, one of the major suppliers of testing, inspection and certification services.
