88 is a vegan brand and no animal products are used.
The founder of 88 is a life long vegetarian and believes that the environment would benefit from the reduction of factory farming .
Various vegan leathers are used in production. The scientific names are PU (polyurethane) and PVC (polyvinylchloride) PU is better for the environment and so although more expensive 88 only uses PU in our bags.
88 develops all of our own custom hardware, again with a focus on the best way for the environment and not necessarily the cheapest way.
All of their suppliers are certified complaint for human rights and good working conditions. They are proud of their relationships with their suppliers, most of whom they have worked with for years and whom they consider part of the 88 family.
They have a quality assurance team at the suppliers every day. Inspecting all aspects of production from materials to in line production checks to ensure that they are truly proud of every item that they ship.
They also teach their suppliers best practices, learning from them every day and teaching their other suppliers so that they have the most efficient production and therefore the best value product to offer.
88 donates a % of every sale to a charity that assists in educating women around the world.
They believe that educating women is the key to a better world.
With women educated even to a primary school level child mortality rates come down, families become wealthier, diseases are more under control and each of these women has more of a choice over her fate and future. She can read about the world and not be dependent on a man to tell her what is and is not true..
