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


SAYE's environment rating is 'good'. It uses a medium proportion of eco-friendly materials including Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) cotton. It manufactures locally to reduce its carbon footprint. There is no evidence it minimises textile waste when manufacturing its products. Its use of eco-friendly materials limits the amount of chemicals, water and wastewater used in production.

Its labour rating is 'good'. Most of its final stage of production is undertaken in Portugal, a medium risk country for labour abuse. It traces most of its supply chain. It is unclear whether it ensures payment of a living wage in its supply chain. It visits most of its suppliers regularly.

Its animal rating is 'it's a start'. It does not use fur, down, exotic animal skin, exotic animal hair or angora. It uses leather.

SAYE is rated 'Good' overall.
