Everlane Hi Jacinta, From what I can see, Everlane’s social media provides a lot of information into how the label is socially responsible. This is through their 100% Human ACLU Nationwide campaign, Dear Everlane initiative, their annual Black Friday Fund and through constant contact and responses to customers on the various social media platforms. They’re also interested in what customers want to see in the products and the brands ethics through open discussions and forums such as Facebook. However, as we are more interested in the supply chain and the production of the garments, I did find a few posts regarding this. th

“The best cashmere fibers come from goats living deep in the mountains of Mongolia, which is where we went. The diet and temperatures there are prime conditions for producing top-quality cashmere.” Claiming their cashmere is bought from Mongolia.

In another post the label shared where their Wool comes from being the Australia Woolmark Company: Further investigation into the Woolmark Company ethics/production is required.

Everlane shared how price surges and drops in the cost of cashmere for businesses rarely reflect the prices in the cost of garments, however they will change prices to reflect the market. Again part of their “Radically Transparent” initiative.

In another post to Instagram the label claims all Small Leather Goods are sourced from a small factory in Spain that employs 20 people.

In an effort to reduce animal cruelty though Goose Down, Everlane have used synthetic materials for their parka jackets.

A post made by Everlane to their Facebook post outlined the costs included in making a cashmere sweater, comparing their prices to that of traditional retailers: Last week, Rupert called us out on a $57 sweater. How could it cost us this much? Well, we dug deep to gather all the facts. Here they are: Cashmere comes from goats living in the deep mountains of Mongolia. The average goat produces 52 ounces of cashmere fiber each year. These fibers go through an extensive process of humane shearing, cleaning, dyeing, and ultimately milling. It's an expensive process. The result is that each ounce of our Grade-A cashmere fibers cost $4.23. That's what it takes if you want the finest quality produced in the best factories. Our sweaters weigh 9.5 ounces, meaning our material alone costs $40.17. From there, the bulk of the cost is labor. Over 30 people are involved in the making of every sweater. That includes knitting, linking, sewing, pressing, and ultimately shipping to our warehouse in Illinois. It's a lot of people and a very delicate skill. Oh and one more fact: Cashmere prices vary tremendously year to year. So if the price of fiber goes up, our prices go up. And if they go down, expect us to lower prices as well. Expect more on that in October. So there you have it. That's why it costs $57 to make a Grade-A Cashmere Sweater.

In a post, Founder Michael Preysman answered questions from Everlane customers, some of these regarding supply chain information and production costs:

Twitter – Everlane have an annual Black Friday Fund. This year funds helped 8,000 of their factory workers at the Nobland Factory in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam receive safe helmuts.
