Our ratings are based on a scale from 1 (We avoid) to 5 (Great) How we rate


Our “Planet” rating evaluates brands based on the environmental policies in their supply chains, from carbon emissions and wastewater to business models and product circularity. Here we rate Holzweiler “Good”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials including organic cotton.
  • It produces long-lasting products.
  • To minimise waste, it reuses some of its textile offcuts.
  • It uses recycled packaging.

Workers’ rights are central to our “People” rating, which assess brands’ policies and practices on everything from child labour to living wages and gender equality. Here we rate Holzweiler “It's a Start”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

Brands’ animal welfare policies and, where applicable, how well they trace their animal-derived products are the focus of our “Animals” rating. Here we rate Holzweiler “Not Good Enough”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It’s published a general statement about minimising animal suffering but not a formal animal welfare policy.
  • It appears to use leather, exotic animal hair, silk, and pearl.
  • Responsible Wool Standard certifies some of the wool it sources.
  • Responsible Down Standard certifies the down it uses.
  • It doesn’t appear to use fur, angora, or exotic animal skin.

Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate Holzweiler “It's a Start” overall.
