SInce the beginning of Buckle & Seam, we have only worked directly with manufacturers and craftsmen. Now we can present numerous certificates, while at the beginning we and especially our partners lacked the necessary financial to carry out these certifications. That's why we are even more proud that today we as a company, but also our local partners, have received such confirmations. We have some of the most important certificates in Europe and worldwide in terms of material selection (REACH + LWG), fair and safe working conditions (BSCI) and existence as a company (BCORP).
While we support personal and professional development with every product we sell and want the basic right to education for all, we also strive to manufacture our products ourselves as conscientiously as possible.

WHILE OUR MAIN GOAL IS GIRLS' EDUCATION, PRODUCT AND MATERIAL QUALITY AS WELL AS FAIR WORKING CONDITIONS ARE IMPORTANT TO US. CERTIFICATES & AWARDS FROM INDEPENDENT THIRD PARTIES CONFIRM OUR WORK.
