Furla doesn't use organic fabrics but recycled materials such as recycled polyester. Most of its fabrics are natural without relevant certifications, such as regular cotton or synthetic petroleum-based fibers such as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and more.
Furla doesn't publish a list of its manufacturers and processing facilities on its corporate website. It doesn't disclose any information regarding how it chooses its network of suppliers.
The 2021 Fashion Transparency Index gave Furla a score of only 7% based on how much the group discloses about its social and environmental policies, practices, and impacts.
The Italian clothing retailer doesn't show any labor certification standard that ensures good working conditions, decent living wages, health, safety, and human rights for workers in its supply chain.
Furla has a code of conduct that applies to all its suppliers and subcontractors. It doesn't reveal if it conducts informal visits or third-party audits with or without notice to improve the working conditions in its factories.
Furla doesn't use any exotic animal skin, hair, fur, or angora. But it uses leather, wool, and silk to manufacture many of its products.
These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and waste. More sustainable alternatives exist.
Furla has committed to reducing its environmental impact and implementing some social and environmental best practices from a sustainability point of view.
It uses increasingly more certified materials that guarantee transparency and high standards. It also uses more and more energy from renewable sources and sustainable packaging.
However, Furla doesn't have clear sustainability goals based on science-based targets with transparent timelines to improve in the future.
