Ethical and responsible manufacturing and materials
At Sisters Republic, we advocate solidarity and respect for the body and the environment. That's why we do everything in our power to offer you innovative, sustainable and socially responsible products!
Every step of the way, from the sourcing of raw materials to the design and assembly of our menstrual lingerie. Visit respect d’une éthique lors du processus de fabrication of our menstrual briefs is very important to us.
That's why our manufacturing process breaks down as follows:
Design & Sourcing
Our underwear is designed in our Paris workshops.
We make a rigorous selection of our fabrics, laces and elastics, which come from Spain, Portugal and Turkey.
They are either certified organic and carry the GOTS label. Or OEKO-TEX certified, i.e. guaranteed free of substances harmful to the body and the environment.
Manufacturing & Testing
Manufacturing takes place in Morocco, in our local workshop, which complies with the strict BSCI code of conduct (fair working conditions for employees*), with regular inspections.
We often visit the production site ourselves to see the manufacturing process and the quality of life of the seamstresses. The packaging for our briefs is ecologically designed and made from 100% recyclable cardboard. What's more, our menstrual underwear is tested by an independent laboratory under gynecological supervision to guarantee perfect tolerance and absolutely convincing efficacy :-)
Our commitment to solidarity
To reinforce our ethical commitment, we have also set up the Sisters Solidaires which supports thousands of women around the world via 3 fantastic partner associations that help fight the taboo of menstruation and menstrual precariousness. To find out more, visit the "Sisters Republic Program" page at the bottom of the website.
*The BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) code of conduct guarantees workers' trade union rights, advocating freedom of association and non-discrimination. It also calls for good working conditions that ensure workers' health and safety, with decent working hours and wages. It prohibits forced and child labor. Finally, it is involved in battles that do not directly concern employees, as it fights to protect the environment.
