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 Itoshiro Yohinten “Good”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials including organic cotton.
  • It uses low impact materials that help limit the chemicals, water, and wastewater in its supply chain.
  • It uses low-waste cutting techniques to maximise fabric use.
  • There’s no evidence it takes action to minimise its packaging, which is a driver of plastic waste.

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 Itoshiro Yohinten “It's a Start”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • Its final production stage happens in Japan, a medium risk country for labour abuse.
  • It traces most of its supply chain.
  • There's no evidence it audits its suppliers.
  • There’s no evidence it ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.

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 Itoshiro Yohinten “Good”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses recycled wool in some of its wool products.
  • It appears to use exotic animal hair, and silk.
  • It doesn’t appear to use leather, down, fur, angora, or exotic animal skin.
