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 Nomadic State of Mind “It's a Start”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It uses a medium proportion of lower-impact materials including organic cotton.
  • It manufactures its products by hand to reduce its climate impact.
  • There’s no evidence it’s taking meaningful action to reduce water use.
  • To minimise waste, it recycles all of its textile offcuts.

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 Nomadic State of Mind “It's a Start”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • It sources its Final Stage of Production from countries with extreme risk of labour abuse.
  • It partly traces its Supply Chain including all of the final production stage.
  • It’s not clear if it ensures workers are paid living wages in its supply chain.
  • It visits its suppliers regularly.

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 Nomadic State of Mind “Good”. It doesn’t appear to use animal-derived materials but doesn’t claim to be a vegan brand.

Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate Nomadic State of Mind “Good” overall.
