We work in close partnership with some of the most talented artisans and craftsmen and women in the industry, investing in close and long-term relationships that are based on mutual respect for the unique competences of both parties. Our suppliers are based in the regions where their raw material is sourced, and the skills and traditions of the relevant craft is the strongest. Upholstered and wooden furniture, wallpaper and some of our textiles are produced in Europe, including the Baltics, Italy, Poland and Sweden, while we work with suppliers in India and China to produce textiles, glassware, ceramics and lighting.
We are committed to source and produce our products responsibly, and work with a Code of Conduct, which is based on the Ten Guiding Principles of the UN Global Compact and is in place to protect worker’s rights and ensure a safe and healthy work environment. All of our suppliers have agreed to and signed this CoC. It is important to us that the working standards for employees follow both high environmental and labour standards.
It is important for us to be transparent with our production and supply chain, and this journey goes hand in hand with those with whom we work to produce our products. This is why we share stories from our suppliers and behind-the-scenes material from production. We see this as a way of inviting our customers into the journey that each ferm LIVING piece makes – from the design process to the finished product.
