Your activewear is produced responsibly
Many fashion brands utilise multiple factories that are owned by different companies to manufacture their products based purely on cost, quality or speed of manufacture.
We have maintained a long-term partnership with one dedicated and ethical Australian-owned and managed manufacturing group that produces the majority of Lorna Jane products. This approach allows us more control over working conditions and production quality.
We are focused on continuous improvement and investment in our ethical sourcing program.
We have a clear commitment to paying a living wage for all involved in the manufacture of our products. Our commitment to a living wage is based on the globally recognised Anker Methodology.

Our requirements for the living wage is outlined in our Code of Conduct for Suppliers as follows:
"Wages and Benefits
Suppliers and subcontractors should pay its male and female employees at least minimum wage or the prevailing industry standard, whichever highest. The amount should be sufficient to cover basic needs for the employee and their family as well as provide some additional income.
Wages and over time premiums and any incentive (or piece) rates should be paid directly to the employee on time and in full.
Suppliers or subcontractors should provide their employees with paid sick leave, annual leave and statutory holidays as required by law or the prevailing industry standard, whichever highest. Women employees are entitled to maternity protection (leave and benefits as well as protection against discrimination) as required by law or the prevailing industry standard, whichever highest.
Childcare benefits and special leave or working time arrangements for workers with family responsibilities shall apply to both men and women."
During our supplier onboarding process, each supplier must sign our Code of Conduct and agree to proactively meet these requirements within its operations and its supply chain.
We have previously rejected, and will continue to reject, factories that do not meet the global standards and our internal Code of Conduct.
