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

  • It uses some lower-impact materials including recycled materials.
  • 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 the industry's waste, it reuses textile offcuts from other companies.

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

  • It partly traces most of its Supply Chain including all of the final production stage.
  • It provides jobs for artisans in Lebanon.
  • It’s not clear if 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 Vanina “Good”. These are a few factors influencing its score:

  • There’s no evidence it has an animal welfare policy.
  • It appears to use exotic animal hair, and silk.
  • It doesn’t appear to use leather, wool, down, fur, angora, or exotic animal skin.

Based on all publicly available information we’ve reviewed, we rate Vanina “Good” overall.
