Eileen Fisher

Eileen Fisher, once associated with older mothers, has lately been attracting a younger audience. Most accessible brands rarely focus on human rights issues, but Eileen Fisher does and with a sophisticated style!

The Bateau Neck Box-Top striped sweater, a pair of jeans, and cute flats is an easily styled outfit for this temperamental New York spring weather. 

  1. A significant portion of their clothing is made in the US. They recognize the importance of keeping production in America, as well as being accountable for their supply chain when items are made outside the US. 

  2. Speaking to their accountability, they are a SA8000 Standard certified company. The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights sets this standard, ensuring the basic human rights of workers at all levels of the supply chain.

  3. Their factories in China collaborate with Verite to provide training programs for their employees, such as financial management, women’s reproductive health, proper nutrition, and stress management. 

  4. By surveying their suppliers on proper recruitment practices and grievance systems, they find and improve places that are vulnerable to human trafficking. With audits on all levels of their supply chain, they have pledged to end relationships with their suppliers if they find violations.

  5. By using organic fibers, natural dyes, and undyed fabrics whenever possible, they ensure the environment is a priority, as well. 

These are but a handful of reasons to start shopping Eileen Fisher, so check out their website and find your new spring outfit!
