Clovia doesn't use any organic or recycled materials. Most of the fabrics it uses are either natural without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton, or synthetic petroleum-based fibers, such as polyester, nylon, and more.
Clovia also uses a small proportion of semi-synthetic fibers or regenerated cellulosic fabrics such as modal and viscose.
Clovia doesn't publish a list of all its manufacturers and processing facilities on its corporate website. It doesn't disclose how it chooses its network of suppliers.
The Indian clothing retailer doesn't show any labor certification standard that would ensure good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and other crucial rights for workers in its supply chain.
Clovia doesn't have a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors based on the regulations set by the International Labor Organization (ILO).
Clovia doesn't disclose if it conducts any audits to improve the working conditions in its factories. It provides no information regarding external audits to identify potential risk areas.
Clovia doesn't use exotic animal skin, hair, fur, or angora. But it uses wool and silk to manufacture many of its clothing pieces.
These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.
Clovia doesn't measure its greenhouse gas emissions, water, land, energy use, pollution, and waste across the supply chain. It doesn't have any clear sustainability goals, science-based targets, or timelines to improve in the future either.
